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.

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.
