Unity Blog Hop 10.30.14!

YEP!! It’s THURSDAY and Unity’s got NEW releases—a SALE, a blog hop, and I’ve got a NEW video for you, too.

happy haunting

That’s my daughter, Gwen, and her very best friend, Jenna. I took this picture of them last week just before they headed off to their first Jr. High School Halloween Dance and I’ve been in the mood to scrap all week!

In my new video, I assemble the layout, using this sketch from Studio Calico ( as inspiration. For the layout, I use the following two stamp sets from Unity Stamp Company.



TIP:  I use an ultrafine black sharpie pen in my Silhouette to help “sketch” the layout, so that I can lay down my picture and embellishments. In the video, you will get an idea of what I mean. This is an excellent tool to use as you won’t have to measure or worry if your placement is off when adhering your photos and embellishments, etc.

Using Suzi Blu’s Mademoiselle and Joslyn Nielson’s Be Spooky sets from Unity!

Other Supplies/Tools Used on Happy Haunting Layout

Silhouette Cameo, Silhouette Pen Holder, & Silhouette Chipboard

Tim Holtz Black Soot and Vintage Photo Distress Ink with sponge dauber

Tim Holtz Paper Distresser

Becky Higgins Script Handwriting Font available at

Arsenic & Lace Patterned Paper by Echo Park & The Spider Web Kit 1 by Carina Gardner available at

Multimono Liquid Glue, Scotch ATG, & dimensional foam adhesive

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.

Surely I am not the only one to notice that the way you colored that lovely Suzi Blu image makes her look just like your profile photo!!! I might not have noticed it, except they are nearly beside each other on the page! :)

This is a super-fun LO page. Great way to capture this memory for your daughter!

Thanks so much everyone! Janis--now I see it! I have a soft spot for brunettes with hazel eyes. The Suzi Blu image is WAY cuter, though.
