Inspiration Wednesday

Hello Unity friends, Shemaine here with this week's Inspiration Wednesday post. 
 I am really enjoying all the holiday pins on Pinterest right now. It seems like everyone is searching for ideas to decorate their homes and handmade gift ideas. 
I came across this Shabby chic Advent calendar and was drawn to the grid pattern and that each square was decorated with different papers and embellishments.

Photo pinned from

I thought this pattern and style would make for a cute holiday themed layouts so I used November's SMAK KIT 

Bright & Merry Moments

Here's my layout created from this inspiration

25 Days of Holiday Memories

To create the grid on my layout I cut an 8x8 piece of kraft cardstock and then cut 9 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 squares of patterned paper from the Simple Stories Handmade holiday 6x6 paper pad. I added some detail to the squares with black pen from American Crafts and decorated a few of them with stamped images and dies. (I love my Santa from the Naughty. Nice. Not Sure set.) I also went thru my stash of older, unused this and thats and found these poinsettias and glitter stars. The die cut Christmas tree and holly are from Lil Inker Designs.

There are so many images in this month's SMAK kit that are easy to incorporate into your layouts.
I just love these snowflakes so much that I had to use them!
I love Christmas time and each year my family has an annual list of holiday traditions that we enjoy together. It's my hope that my children will carry on these traditions with their own families one day.
I hope you'll be inspired to check out Pinterest for some ideas for scrapbooking your holiday memories.
There's only a few days left to grab your November SMAK kit so don't miss out!
Have an amazing rest of your day!

Growing in Unity Wednesday

It's Wednesday and that time again to share this week's Growing in Unity gal!  This week we have Cheri Howard sharing her Unity creations.

Meet Cheri:

Here is a little something about Cheri:

"Hello! My name is CherĂ­ Howard, and I am married to my wonderful husband, Bill. We share our home with a cat, Lex, in beautiful Alaska. We are working on adopting a baby - we're waiting to to be chosen by a birthmother! I have been crafting for as long as I can remember, but it was only 4 years ago that I rediscovered my love of rubber stamping and became inspired by all the techniques available today. My inspiration often comes from nature, and lately my projects have been CAS or pretty close to it."

Here is a great project from Cheri:

Be sure to visit Cheri on her blog each day this week and leave her some love.  At the end of the week she will pick one person at random to win two itty bitty stamps!

Till next week!

DT Tuesday with Lisa H.

Hello, and  good morning!
I'm happy 
to have the morning 
to share a little Unity with you.

I am sure most of you are trying (if not already)
kicking things into gear 
with the holidays. 
It usually takes me a good week after 
the US Thanksgiving Holiday 
to change gears. 

I have some craftiness to share. 
That's why you're here, right??

It's always fun to 
dress up even the simplest of
gifts with a tag
and some embellies. 

I used the Authentique stamp, 
(love that there are three images included with
this itty bitty!). 

I also spent a little time browsing 
love when I make time to do this. 
There is sooo 
much inspiration out there.

How about this one from 
A few simple embellies
and a
Unity sentiment
(from a December KOM). 
and this stunning card came to be. 

I also found this one from a few weeks back
on a FWF post. 
Thanksgiving may be past, 
but this turkey was way to cute to pass up. 
Thanks Tina-Feisty Crafter for sharing. 

I'll leave you with a quote for today. 
I like to keep it upbeat and positive

Saw this one Pinterest....
not sure who said it or where it came from 
but I liked it.

You were born to be real, Not Perfect!

Have a beautiful day!
Thanks for hanging with me. 
Lisa H.
