There's ONLY ONE YOU... - SMAK Saturday

Hello friends!
It's Thienly here with SMAK Saturday!

I'm usually a card and 3D paper crafts girl... 
I try to always challenge myself to do layouts on these days. :)

Today - 
I made a layout for my sister.

She's 10 years younger than I am, 
and yet - 
she's accomplished so much in her life.
...and I'm so proud of her.

She's got goals.
She's got aspirations.
She's got dreams.

I think it's so beautiful - 
she has this energetic personality that I can't explain.

She takes chances.
Sometimes all too sudden.
Some of which are life changing.
However, she knows what she wants.

She surrounds herself with this postive force that allows her help her reach her ambitions.

..and through all that -
she seems to manage it all,
and comes out ahead.

Stronger and more confident. 

Anyway - here's my layout using last month' SMAK:

..and that's her :)

Isn't she beautiful?
Can't you see her positive energy radiating from her face?

I have so much faith in her... 
and whatever she does,
I know she'll always succeed.

There's only one YOU...
only you can have full control over your life.

I hope that she never stops taking those opportunities given to her :)

I love my sister.
So proud of you :)

Hope that you liked my layout!

SMAK (Scrapbooking, Mixed-Media, Altered art, Kit) and Kit of the Month

Hello Unity lovers,

Ohhhhhh stupid me, I really thought I had to create something with the SMAK of the month ...
But no way, the plan was to create something with the KOTM.

No worries, I'll post them both. I made just a few quickies with the KOTM.
But first the SMAK...

This layout is specially made for Angela. A few months ago 
she placed a photo of her family in the beginning years. 
  I was bowled over by this picture. 
This layout is made with the November SMAK 

and see how wonderful these stamps match with the photo.
And of course these two cards are made with the November KOTM,
 all 3 of them completely different. 
These cards were made in less than an hour 

and that's because the stamps are so different that you can make ...
 three beautiful cards in less than an hour

and that is the power of the KOTM, many stamps and many possibilities.
This is it for this Friday!!
Wish you all a very good weekend 
and for information about the KITS

Friends With Flair

Stephanie here again to start you off with Friends with Flair today.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
This is always my favorite time of year when we get to spend time with family and have some good laughs.

I used November KOTM for my card today love the flowers and the great quotes in this kit so fun!!!

GRATEFUL. and full of LOVE for the MOMENT.


thanks. giving.
i love this day.
don't you?

i love this day a little bit MORE and MORE each year.

well, for the obvious reasons. 

we eat. 
we laugh.
we talk smart. 
then we eat again.
that all in itself is GOOD. GOOD. GOOD.

thanks. giving.

it's the EASY holiday.
forget gifts. 
and decorations.
and craziness.
just be....
with the people you love. love. love.
look around. 
take it all in.

THAT is all you have to do.
so MAYBE your turkey is dry.
or the stuffing sucks.
perhaps the potatoes are gluey...and you completely FORGOT the canned cranberries.
nobody cares.
{...and neither will you if you REMEMBERED the wine! HA! - kidding} 

the point is.
let this day be beautiful.
we work hard for these moments.
let gratitude set in. 
take notice. 
take a deep breath.

it was all worth it - EVERYTHING. 
just to get you to THIS day.
so let it be beautiful.
put ALL that is GOOD in front of ALL that is BAD.
YOU deserve a moment of peace. 
you really, really do. 

do you KNOW how grateful WE ARE FOR YOU?!
because you support our little company EVERY DAY
the families that are involved with UNITY get to have a moment of peace.
with no worries. 
the world gets to stand still.
gosh i love that.
it is this trickle down effect.
YOU help US help our people and their families. 
REMEMBER that always. - and how much we appreciate YOU.
because today is a good day to be THANKS giving.

Wanna be inspired a little more.
Go for a little UNITY HOP.
Leave some love for the girls that have made something special today.

We have NO SALES. 

are you there?
are you there?
but believe me 
we will make up for it.
CYBER MONDAY is just a moment away.

this is what is coming up. 

stop by unity when you are TIRED of shopping for everyone else.
you can get something for you.
really cheap. 
just saying.

new releases and a BIT OF A REPEAT of Brown Thursday. 
yep. for real.

so GO HOP. 
leave some LOVE for the girls for a chance to win THESE pretties.
FASHIONISTAS by Tracey Malnofski.

then GO ENJOY the rest of your day.

HUGS and love to you ALL!!!
from US.

Inspiration Wednesday

 Happy Wednesday
Stephanie here to share a little inspiration with ya.
One of my favorite ways to get inspiration is from card sketches I love having a way to get the mojo going and this is a great way, there are so many challenges out there to get ideas.
This card I used the Give Give Give Stamp
so much fun and I used my distress markers to get the different colors on my stamp.

Everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!!

Kit of the Month Monday- Strength & Dignity

Hello!! Angie Blom here with a fun Canvas project to share using this
 November 2013 Kit of the Month
I just love using my kits for Mixed Media projects..
Makes wonderful gifts to give during this holiday season.
Using some of the images ,I inked them up on white tissue paper, and added them with some mod podge over my painted canvas. You will find  it easier to get a better stamped image on the canvas, and the tissue paper disappears into the background. 
The paint of the background will show through.. so don't worry about seeing the white tissue paper. Then adding some coloured flowers and punched out shapes from McGill punches.. it just finished the piece perfectly..  I hope you give this a try with your membership kits and the other kits
Unity Stamp Company offer.
  This is the November Kit of the Month.. I just love this and you only have this week to grab it and become a member.. I am sure you will love getting these kits every week in your mail box..
I know I do.
To become a member go to the Unity Stamp Company website to sign up and read all the details..

Have a glorious day..

SMAK Saturday

Hello Unity friends, Shemaine here sharing some SMAK inspiration with you on this fabulous Saturday morning! I am headed out to my girls last soccer game of the year this weekend and I thought creating with some of her shots and the November SMAK kit was perfect for this weekend's inspiration! 

First let's have a look at this fabulous kit.

I love how month after month these kits can be adapted into any themed project you may have in mind. My Albums Made Easy layout was easy to put together using the images I chose from this month's kit.

Here's a look

Here's a few more close ups.

I love this photo of my daughter and the There's Only one You image was perfect to document it. She is such a stinker right now and loves to make silly faces when I want to try to get a nice shot of her.

I love that the SMAK images are easy to stamp and cut out if you don't want to stamp them directly onto cardstock like the i {heart} this image.

If you're interested in getting your fix of amazing images month after month then click over here to find out how the membership works and all the perks!

That's it for this edition of SMAK Saturday. I am off to watch the Yellow Sunsets end their season with a win!

Have a great weekend!
