SMAK and LOL Kit day!!

Hello Unity Peeps,

Jolande here with some news for SMAK LOVERS!!
Oh my gosh, did you see the new SMAK? 
 I love it (maybe because I designed most
 of these stamps with Jake).
I did not have time to create something with it,
 but I hope to do so as soon as possible.

What I made with the previous two SMAKs 
is this new workshop that I designed for a Dutch craft-store!!
It's not complete, but that's because I am waiting for my new stamps it's a work in progress!!

I also made this layout, with two of my 
most favorite persons of the whole of the USA
 (yes, I have also a few favorites in Europe ).

The SMAK is my most favorite exclusive KIT
 and that's not only because I designed 
most of the stamps of the last three months. 

It's great for layouts and it's also great for other projects!!

And last but not least a tag with stamps
 from the last Layers Of Life.

These are also stamps that I designed especially for you!!

I hope you like it, see you next time

Inspiration Wednesday!

Hello there Unity friends,
Karen here with you today to share this sweet little card I created.
I always find that Pinterest can provide such a variety of
inspiration, so when I saw this little owl with the winter beanie,
I had to find a new way to color him in!

Here's what I found on Pinterest to help
inspire my card creation...

Pinterest Inspiration Photo Credit:

I especially love the soft colors and tones used for shading this little guy.
Those huge and colorful flowers caught my eye as well.
So, I pulled out the current
Unity November KOTM- "Best Year Yet" and went on my little way
playing with colors, textures, and some mixed media goodies!!

Here you can see I added more details, like adding some Glossy Accents
to his eyeglasses, so they resemble real shades! 
I also decided to use some Frantage embossing powders to 
add some snow effect to the background of the stamped image.
The background paper has been embossed with a beautiful floral pattern.

Lastly, I made this huge tattered flower using distress inks
in a variety of peaches, pinks, and old paper colors.
Sprinkled tiny dots to the center of the flower.
Then, the leaves were also distress inked and covered with
some marble glitter to resemble snow!

Hope this inspires you to pull out your mixed media
supplies, Copics, and find some photos via Pinterest
to add a different flavor to your creations.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hugs & Smiles,

Growing in Unity

It's time for another GIU week!  This week Sheryl is up sharing her Unity creations!

Meet Sheryl:

Here is something about Sheryl:

"Hey name is Sheryl and I'm from Fort Collins, CO.  This is my 3rd year of being a GIU girl and I'm so excited.  I love doing this.  It's so much fun and it gets me using my creative juices full force.  Growing In Unity was actually how I was introduced to Unity.  I came across a post for "free stamps sets" and I felt the hook go right into my cheek.  I had to hurry and purchase my first set so I had a set to create with...and that set was Music of the Heart.  Now?  LOL....I have probably about 900 sets.  And I don't think I could ever part with ANY of my stamps.  I love all my crafting goodies.  I'm not a horder.  I'm just a crafter with all my stuff on display"

Check out this super fun tag she made:

Be sure to swing on by Sheryl's Blog each day this week for loads of fun Unity inspiration and your chance to win some Unity goodies!

DT Tuesday - {Pick of the Week}

Good morning! Heather dropping by this morning - and I have NO idea how November is almost over!!! Anyone else feel like they blinked and it just slipped by somehow?!?!?!? I looked at the calendar this morning and realized that it was my morning to post, and I completely missed it!

I am usually a don't-decorate-for-Christmas-until-after-Thanksgiving kinda girl, but for some reason this year, I've been ready for weeks! We already have a few things up, and I think a few more are going to be added today! So, on that note, I thought I would track down some Christmas projects. 

I went looking for some beautiful inspiration to share - and let me tell you, there is a LOT to be found!!! I came across these on the Unity Show and Tell Facebook page - a wonderful source for endless inspiration! So without further ado - here they are:

First up, this beauty by Lee Ann Barrett - isn't it a stunner? I absolutely adore the color combo she's used - it positively jumped out at me!!!

And then this soft and gorgeous card by Sharon Nettleship - that snowflake couldn't be more beautiful!

And finally, this little cutie by Mandi Speers Mance - makes me squeal with happiness! SOOOO adorable!

How about you? Are you ready for Christmastime, or would you rather fall would stick around a little longer? And 'fess up - have you started decorating for Christmas? Either way - hope you have a wonderful day and a blessed and joyful Thanksgiving!!!
