BROWN Thursday Unity Blog Hop 2014!!

It’s BROWN Thursday and Unity’s got a hop and a sale scheduled just for you! This sale is going to be THE sale to stock up on all of those stamps you’ve denied yourself all year long. Go ahead, spoil yourself a little. Indulge in your rubbery Unity fetish and travel along this hop to see how the Unity DT have used old and NEW Unity Stamps available NOW at a low, low price! Did I mention there are incentive stamps, too?! Yep.

I’ve held Thanksgiving at my house for most of the past 20 years because it’s just easier to do it that way. In addition, I know for a fact that the food will be good and my house will have the aromas I long for all year.

Leftovers. Enough said.

Still, after all of these years, I struggled with putting together an enormous grocery list from my recipes. Unfortunately, my recipes were buried in cookbooks, online bookmarks, or they may have even resided on that one piece of paper that was somewhere in my house. Somewhere. Pinterest had helped me but I had to struggle with my iPhone or tablet’s battery issues or WI-FI connection. After the frustration of putting together this year’s grocery list, I had ENOUGH!  I set out to create a central place for my recipes that was tangible AND cute, SO this is a picture of what I came up with and I couldn’t be happier. I even have room to add future recipes. Maybe I’ll even stash future grocery lists. Hooray for organization!

UNITY Fashionistas are some of my favorite stamps and I think they’ve put a sexy, fun, and sassy spin on this recipe holder. Don’t you think?  The sentiments I used on the cooking reference cards have me cracking up and giggling like a school girl. I think they will keep me in the right mood during one of the year’s most demanding holidays. Fashionistas and Kahlua.

I have an assembly video for you that shows how I put it together, how it looks in my hot little hands, AND I demonstrate how to use the Unity Bow Maker. Heck, I think it makes my hands look hot. These fashionistas are smokin’!

Recipe holder that won’t disappoint!!

Here’s a rundown of all the Unity rubbery goodness I used in the making of the recipe holder.

In addition, if you haven’t seen how I use my Silhouette Cameo with the Pixscan mat to help me with my fussy cutting, here’s a video I prepared a little while back.

Fussy cutting at it’s finest!
