It opens up and there are two pockets inside.
Other supplies used are:

Closeup of flowers… the paper was stamped using the Unity’s Worn Music Background Stamp and then punched out with Fiskar’s flower punch. Three layers were glued together and a vintage button was placed on top!!

Other Supplies Used:

Many of us spend half our time wishing for things we could have if we didn't spend half our time wishing.

Was it just me?
Why didn't I get that at first?
Tell me it wasn't just me.
---------------------------------------
We spend half our time wishing - not doing.
Got it.
Love it.
I hope today you have a wish, and then get up and make it come true!
It reminded me of watching golf on Sunday.
{i have to watch it, no choice, my boys all love golf}
.....anyway.....
They were saying how Tiger Woods MAKES his ball go into the hole.
I found that interesting.
Makes it.
Cause he wished it.
Then he got up.
TOOK ACTION TOWARD his dream.
...and now he MAKES it happen.
I love that.
So if you believe in that stuff....you can make it happen, too.
Go for it.
Like always...I hope you enjoy your day!

Let's Enjoy our Day!



May Day - Friends Blog Hop!

Tradition.
My wonderful mother gave me a ton of Traditions to hold dear.
ONE of them being MAY DAY!
Well, APPARENTLY...... I live a pretty sheltered life.
Doesn't EVERYONE Celebrate May Day?
I guess not!
I found that out when I asked my Design Team to make MAY DAY Baskets for the Blog Hop Today. Some of them were saying
"Huh? What is MAY DAY?"
If you are not familiar with May Day - My gal Christi Snow has found a quick little low down for you!
------------------------------------------
May Day was also celebrated by some early European settlers of the American continent. In some parts of the United States, May Baskets are made on the first day of May. These baskets are small and usually filled with flowers or treats and left at someone's doorstep. The basket giver would ring the bell and run away. The person receiving the basket would try to catch the fleeing giver. If they caught the person, a kiss was to be exchanged.
--------------------------------------------
As a little girl...this was a pretty exciting day.
I loved it almost as much as Christmas.
My mom would save the green plastic strawberry baskets - we would weave ribbon in and out of them...or I would simply color dixie cups and run a pipe cleaner through a couple holes.
I would then deliver them to all of my friends.
So Much Fun!
----------------------------------------------
I have this feeling my DT Girls came up with a few FAB ideas to share with you in honor of the May Day Tradition for the BLOG HOP today.
{I hope you enjoy!}
----------------------------------
I also asked the girls to post a bit about their "Best"Friend.
I am not a "BEST" Friend sort of gal.
I am just so THANKFUL everyday that I have beautiful people in my life.
I have some of the greatest friends that I get to share moments with.
I could not coin one as BEST. They are all THE BEST.
------------------------------
However...This Guy.....
He holds my heart.
I would pretty much say that through 14 years of time spent together- minute after minute, hour after hour, day after day - moment by moment he has become my friend.
...and I have to say - HE is amazing at it.
I have said it before and I will say it again - I love this guy!
--------------------------------------------
Blog Hop Time!

{i love that name}

--------------------------------------

Today is a GREAT DAY!

I feel happy.

Each morning I read a few quotes to get me going.

{I know that must surprise you and leave you shocked}

I have started to share my quote finds with the peeps in the front at Unity.

Today, I found this one and read it quick. I then added it to the morning email & quickly sent it out to Eryn, Brooke, Michelle and Chris.

"I'm not happy. I'm cheerful. There's a difference. A happy woman has no cares at all. A cheerful woman has cares but has learned how to deal with them."
Beverly Sills1929-2007, Opera Singer

I read it a SECOND time and thought.

Darn.

I sent it and now I don't know if I like that one!

HOWEVER...then reality set in. It is true! We are not ALWAYS happy.

If we want to be truthful....That might get annoying.

Being "cheerful" is going to get us through those cares that come along with daily life. Those "cares" that chip away at a HAPPY DAY.

So next time I am having a day with cares that need attention I will try to be cheerful. A new way to look at things is good.

ALWAYS UP FOR A GOOD CHALLENGE!

Now be HAPPY {or at the very least, cheerful} and start your BLOG HOP!

WOW! Look at Kerry!

Some information about Crafty Kerry!
I am a SAHM of two wonderful boys and live in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest. I started scrapbooking when my first son was born (6 years ago) but fell in love with card making two years ago.
How did you find Unity Stamps?
I was browsing blogs and Patter had some sort of contest or giveaway going on…I won and received my first Unity set gratitude=joy. I fell in love with the stamps and then started hanging out in the SCS forum and fell in love with the people!


Stamps Used: Gratitude = Joy
What is your favorite Kit?
Hmmm…this is such a hard question for Unity lovers but I think gratitude=joy is still my favorite although Simply Said is another set I grab a lot…such great sentiments!

Do you have a fave color combo??
No favorite color combination but I use a lot of blues and greens.

What inspires you??
I am inspired by all kinds of art, patterned papers, my stamps, Etsy, and of course all the amazing creations I see in the SCS galleries and crafty blogs.

Do you have a favorite quote?
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.”
Henry David Thoreau
{i love that one too!}

Stamps Used: Blossom
What sort of music do you enjoy while crafting??
I often have the tv on or I just enjoy the quiet. :)

I enjoyed my morning briefly browsing through Kerry's Splitcoast Gallery HERE.
Visit Kerry's BLOG HERE! She has more Unity Inspiration to Share!
She had so much variety in her style!
It was hard to choose which cards to grab for the Unity Blog!
Loved SO MANY of them!
Kerry, I can't tell you how much we appreciate your continued support of Unity!
We love having you in the forum!
Chatting away.
Looking forward to all the wonderful creations to come!

Guest Design Team Member - Lynn Warner at her Best!

Donna Downey is giving away
5 Dream Tree Background on her blog!
Be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win!
Lynn has been BUSY!
Phenomenal talent in this ladies fingertips. She has used Unity in so many exciting and new ways! I just love her vintage and eclectic style!
Bloom…
12x12 Layout using the Unity UK-304A Flower Stamp
Basic Grey Urban Prairie Paper & Stickers
Making Memories Paper
Manila Tags
Fiskars Flower Punch
Vintage button
Versafine Vintage Sepia
ColorBox Chalk Chestnut Roan
Fun Springtime Card
I challenged myself to create a card using the March Unity KOTM and Love Ewe and incorporate some of the stamps in a non-traditional way.

Here’s what I did:
Decided on your paper, I used Kraft paper, vintage music and some Basic Grey Porcelain paper and sticker strips
Here’s how the strips are assembled, from the top of the card down:
Use the topiary from KOTM on Kraft paper for top strip
Ink edges of Basic Grey Sticker Strip for pink scroll
Pleat vintage music and ink edges for next layer
Stamp the scrolls from the Love Ewe Mama sheep’s body on pink paper
Stamp the curly brackets on green BG Sticker Strip
Stamp the brown flowers (KOTM) on ledger paper
Stamp the dotted lines from the curly bracket (KOTM) and ink and distress bottom edge
Stamp the “May you Live” sentiment on Kraft paper and distress edges
Attach strips to card and ink all edges.
Create a little button {from music paper} by punched a circle, crop-a-diling two holes and distressing it!
Distress envelope to match and stamp with one of the same images
{Mama Ewe stamped on corners as swirls}
Call it done!




I’ve found that I LOVE to use the larger Unity Background Stamps not only for scrapbooking pages, but for the fun tags I love to make. Here the quick steps to make this fun tag:

1) Stamp plain manila tag with Worn Music background stamp using Versafine Vintage Sepia.
2) Position Tim Holtz Mask and spray Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist. Dab with paper towel.Optional: if you don’t have Glimmer Mist or masks, overstamp a larger image of your choice in a different color
3) Remove mask and spray entire tag with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist (gives it just a little sparkle!)
4) Ink edges with ColorBox Chalk Ink, Chestnut Roan
5) You’re done!

Some Gallery Favorites!

Sunday Afternoon.
Lazy Sunday Afternoon.
Still unable to PULL myself away from the computer!
UG.
Hello, My name is ANGELA and I am a Unity Addict.
It is everywhere!
I could spend ALL DAY hopping from Blog to Blog,
Google Search to Google Search and find some much Unity!
Today I thought I would visit the Splitcoast Community Unity Gallery.
Poked around in there for hours.
You people are all so talented!
Although there were SEVERAL that grabbed my attention - I thought I would grab a few to share! I think Sunday is a good day to do that.
What can we call it?
I should debut talent EVERY Sunday!
Here is what I found!

I have been reading a book:
THINK and GROW RICH.
The title is misleading - it is not simply about wealth.
It was written long ago.
It was written in a time similar to now.
With people facing uncertainty when it comes to finances and jobs.
It clearly states that in the times of the most economic hardships the MOST opportunities arise.
It forces people to THINK OUTSIDE the box and starts a wave of unbelievable energy.
Some of the most amazing ideas have surfaced due to uncomfortable times in history.
Don't despair.
Life continues.
Find your passion.
Move forward.
Get Creative.
Let go of your fear - it is only an illusion.
Light a fire - and run with it!

When you know who you are;
when your mission is clear and youburn with the inner fire of unbreakable will;
no cold can touch your heart;
no deluge can dampen your purpose.
You know that you are alive."
Chief Seattle
Native American Indian
