Unity KOM Blog Hop!!!

Hello everybody!!! Today is Unity's AMAZING KOM (Kit of the Month) Blog Hop... and if you started at the beginning, you've made it ALL THE WAY to the end!!! (and you deserve an award... & maybe some chocolate!) ;) I'm your last stop on the grand tour, and I'm SO excited to have you here!

So... just a couple of quick things!

  1. You can view the Unity KOM Blog Hop by starting at the Unity Blog.
  2. If you get lost along the way, just click HERE to go to the Unity Splitcoaststampers forum.
OK! So here are a couple of cards I made using 2 of my FAVORITE Unity KOMs!



The sentiment from this set is from the September KOM. I framed a piece of an old dictionary page to use as my focal point.


And here is a card I made using one of my favorite images of all time --- the famous Unity camper! This image & sentiment can be found in the August KOM. I stamped the camper onto an old map that I had & paper pieced it to give it a retro 1970's feel. The "ribbon" is a piece of dictionary paper that I gathered & sewed in place.

I hope you've enjoyed your KOM Hop! Thanks for making it to the end!!! :)
