Welcome to Friday and another Friends with Flair Unity Style. Be sure to swing by the Unity Blog for a full list of Friends participating today and be sure to keep your eye out for that FABULOUS UNITY FRIENDS WITH FLAIR BLINKIE, you just might win something!!



So you all are familiar with Ali Edwards December Daily right? I have been thinking about starting one but wasn't sure. Then last week the amazing Unity DT showed us what they started for their daily and I was inspired.

SO, here is the cover of my daily:


I had a small chipboard album in my stash which is 6x6 so I used the covers. I'm calling my book "Season of blessings 2010" because I know I won't keep up with a real daily and I wanted to start mine around Thanksgiving. So instead of Dec 1 - 25 everyday, I'm going with Thanksgiving to New Years and pick random days to cover. Does that make sense?

Here are some of my basic inside blank pages, including a few primed canvas pages!



The paper I used on my cover is from Best Creations and my flowers are made from a silky fabric from Joannes using the a burnt edge technique. My inside pattern papers are from Memory Box and the solids are SU and Gina K. Designs.

Well that's all for now!

This week's color challenge over at Stamp TV is to use turquoise sea, red hot and white. Now, my Gina K cardstock collection has gotten large but unfortunately I didn't have those colors yet so I opted for some SU colors instead.

Alrighty peeps I made another Unity Christmas ornament this week. For this one I started with a wooden piece (unfinished wood) in the shape of a bell from Michael's. I covered with some Christmas paper and used some glossy modge podge over which gives it shine. I used the mittens from the Oct KOTM for my piece. I stamped it twice and the second time ran it through the swiss dots embossing folder. Cut the mittens out and added them using dimensionals.

Here it is:



Well that's all for now!

Welcome to Friday and another Friends with Flair Unity Style. Be sure to swing by the Unity Blog for a full list of Friends participating today and be sure to keep your eye out for that FABULOUS UNITY FRIENDS WITH FLAIR BLINKIE, you just might win something!!

This week with Halloween over I've been thinking about Christmas. And I decided to make an ornament for the Unity Addicts "Uncard" challenge for this week. You can find all the details HERE.

I made a pretty simple one using the cute owl from the August kit of the month. The ornament is actually a plastic one that I found at Micheal's. This is perfect with 2 four year olds running around! I picked up a few of them in hopes I will make more. I put that fake plastic "snow" that you can buy by the bagful inside, added a glitter ribbon to the top and the owl. My picture may not pick it up well but there are glitter stars on the ornament. Also at Micheal's I found a sheet of stickers in holiday shapes. They are double sided so that you put it on something peel back the blue layer and add some glitter, flock etc. Fun stuff.
