Growing in Unity - Day 3

I have a super long post so let me start off by saying happy hump day. Well today is also is Unity Addicts Challenge and Maria challenged us to make bookmarks with a theme. The funny thing was I had already started doing one for this week I'm just going to show it to you a day early.


I got the idea for this bookmark from Kim at Paperie Petals.
Stamps: Unity Stamp Co - Nov KOM (Home Story & Frame), Aug KOM (Butterfly), Oct KOM (Good Times), Dec KOM (Bliss), Mix Up of Cuteness, Worn Grid; Ink: Palette Noir, Rouge, Charcoal; Paper: Basic Grey - Scarlet's Letter Walks in Beauty, Misc Red; Other; Threading Water Punch, Round Punch, Copics, Gold eP, Martha Stewart Crosshatch Silver Sage
I would like to share a tip with as to what I do when I go to start a card/project with my Unity stamps. Since I keep all of them together, when I get my new ones in with the "index sheet" I punch a hole in the top left corner and add it to my binder ring. It helps me to keep up with what I have and scan through real quick to plan out what I want to use.

Ok one more thing and I promise that's it for the day 3. This week's Featured Stamper is Lori Craig. Now I don't know her personally but I have chatted with her several times through email and she is one of the sweetest people. So when I saw that she was the featured stamper I had to do this challenge.
Stamps: Jan KOM, Aug KOM (Butterfly); Ink: Palette Noir; Paper: PTI Aqua Mist, MM 5th Avenue, GA Pacific; Other: Pearl & Rhinestone Stickers, Copics, Nesties, Primas, Karen Foster Ribbon
Ok, I lied, I do have one more thing to mention. I have figured out the stamps for you to pick out from if you are picked from my commentors this week.
Live the Life You Love
My! What a Beautiful Tree
Love & Meaning
Rows of Yummies
Boom Goes my {Heart}
