HI and WELCOME to Day 1 of this amazing 2-day event!
You should be joining me from Latisha's blog, if not then head to the beginning on the Unity Stamp Co. blog.

With all the blog-swaps that are happening out there lately, I can't think of one more exciting than when the amazing women of SPELLBINDERS get together with the rockstars of UNITY STAMP COMPANY!

We can't wait to show you a special line of coordinating products featuring SPELLBINDERS dies and SAMANTHA WALKER for Unity Stamp Co. rubber stamps!  
Not only are we thrilled to be collaborating on such a special 2-day event, but ONE of you will win ALL of the coordinating stamps and dies from the Samantha Walker collection!  We will also have 1 winner each day from the comments that will receive 1 Samantha Walker stamp set and coordinating dies.
So be sure to enjoy our hop both days, leave comments on all of the blogs each day and check back to see if you won!
(winners will be posted on Wednesday, October 19th on the Unity Blog and Spellbinders Blog)

I've made a little Thanksgiving decoration using the Orchard Harvest stamp set and dies.
It was SUPER simple to make.  I cut and embossed the leaves and adhered them to chipboard then cut and embossed the frame, stamped the sentiment and flourish and that's it!

It is SO nice having the dies...no tedious cutting of all those leaves!!!
This was maybe my 2nd time embossing, I have no idea why I don't do it all the time, it makes a HUGE difference in the details!
And this set of dies and stamps are great for any season!  The framed dies and stamps will work for any occasion :)

Now please head over to Shanna's blog!
In case you get lost along the way, visit the Unity Stamp Company blog for a list of all the blogs in today’s blog hop!
I am SO excited to hear what you think of all of these amazing creations today and tomorrow so make sure you leave comments on all the blogs for your chance at those fabulous prizes!

HAVE A FABULOUS DAY!
