Unity Blog HOP 01.28.16!!

HAPPY Thursday, everyone!!
Today’s hop starts the “Something for Everyone Sale” at Unity, so be sure to stop by Unity and fill your cybercarts with some Unity rubber that you know you’re going to LOVE always!

Today, I’m going to share an 8-1/2-x-11-inch scrapbook layout using this month’s SMAK.


My daughter, Brandi, is currently in New Zealand spending time with friends, enjoying herself, and letting her free spirit fly. You’ve got to do that every once in a while when you’re a young woman while you can. This is her second trip to the country of New Zealand and she’s visited Australia in the past as well. I think she likes it downunder. It hasn’t been my time yet to go, BUT I always look forward to her pictures no matter where she goes. Scrapping her photos kind of makes me feel like I’m right there with her on the trip.

I pulled out this month’s SMAK and got started right away—she’s not even home yet!


NOW it's time to SHOW & TELL!

PLEASE share your lovely creations on Facebook with the Unity {show & tell) Facebook group. Lots of us check-in there daily (I check in several times daily--I’m addicted to inspiration).

THIS lovely creation is what I saw there this morning while enjoying my morning coffee. It was posted by Lin Metcalf. I was floored! It’s amazing and I cannot stop looking at it—now I want to make a pocket letter with all my favorite Unity stamps. THANKS so much for the inspiration, Lin. 

GO check out Lin’s original post on the Unity {show & tell) Facebook group and leave her some LOVE: https://www.facebook.com/groups/434773279941105/permalink/977451799006581/

Gorgeous layout! Love all the blues. I'm a cardmaker. Not a scrapper. Wish I had that talent & patience though.

Thanks for sharing your layout. I haven't tried the pocket letter yet so thanks for the inspiration.

The Art of Being Kelcified said...

This stamp set worked perfectly for this layout! I have many 8.5x11 scrapbook pages as that is what I started with before 12x12 albums even came out. I still love the simplicity of the 8.5x11. I also love that pocket letter idea and plan to use that very soon for a dear loved one.

Shary said...

Great to see Unity stamps used in a different way. Fab layout! x

Mary said...

What an incredible way to use multiple stamps....i gotta go play...
