2013: A Year In Review {with Unity}

2013 was a big year for me creatively. Fate brought me a sweet girl by the name of Angela. She provided me with HUGE opportunities to expand my card crafting work as well as my design skills. I have loved Unity since I began card crafting in 2008. But 2013 was my year. My year to join the Unity family.

I started with a guest design spot. Then, I got one very special email asking to stay. Then, I started designing stamps. It was meant to be in 2013.

I love my Unity family. Angela, her family, the staff, the design team girls and the artistas. They are all my family. They mean the world to me. So thank you, 2013 for bringing me THEM.

And I gotta say, Unity fans are pretty special to me, too. For an entire year, I have read each and every comment you all have left me. You have touched my heart, with each word and compliment you've given.

So thank you for that.

Today, I'm posting a few Unity creations that I submitted to Paper Crafts Magazine that never got their chance to shine this year. I hope you enjoy, and I look forward to many many more Unity projects in 2014.





Your next stop along the way is the always creative Jolande. As always, don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a fabulous Unity prize and be sure to check out the year in review sale going on on the Unity website. Enjoy!
