Unity Thursday - {be inspired!}

Hello all!
It's time for another weekend of fun at Unity!

Today - we have few exciting things going on!
Super adorable release from Phyllis Harris,
So fun to use sentiments from Donna Downey,
An all new holiday {be inspired} Sentiment kit,
and the new {be inspired} Unity challenge begins today!
(not to mention the sale, too!)

You should have arrived here from Shemaine's blog -
and here's others for your reference:
Thienly Azim - that's me!
Isha Gupta (Guest Designer) -

Oooh, I just love the new challenge colors! (and the inspiration pic!)
I'm just craving a nice warm cup of hot chocolate looking at it.
I can almost smell it right now!

So, I decided to make a card (surprise, surprise...
Of course, layout would be more of a challenge for me)

I took that same pretty ornmament in the sketch, 
but decided to do something different with it!
(the ornament is from the current KOM )

I made a 3D honeycomb ornament.
Of course, you're not gonna be able to send this, 
but for those special recipients - 
what a fun card to give!

 For those of you that wants to know how to make it, 
here's a quick how-to:
1. Cut out 10 of the stamped ornaments.
2. Fold them all into half, into semi-circles.
3. Glue the top and the bottom section of each of the inner fold, 
making sure that where it's glued is exactly the same for all of them.
4. Once dry, adhere each of the semi-circles together by making a strip horizontally in the middle,
again making sure that the glued section is same for all.
5. Allow to completely dry. Unfold the semi-circle to reveal a pretty honeycomb ornament!

I used washi/glitter tape to tie in the challenge colors :)

The next project up is the new Phyllis Harris stamp -
Oooh, how I enjoyed making this one!

I've always wanted to make this FRAME from SVG Cuts, 
and when I realized that this image was the perfect size for it -

The yellow dotted paper is from Crate Paper Bo-Peep collection
and based my colors on that.
The sky was a bit brighter than what I wanted to be - 
but think it added a bit to the 'dreamy' part.

I added some dress wrinkles and shadows to bring out the image,
and of course, some rhinestones did more magic :)

Check out all the other Phyllis Harris release as well as all her past ones - they are all so pretty!

Lastly, but not least - 
is the new Sentiment kit!
(We always have a new sentiment kit for every challenge! - 
just for fun! You are not required to use them for the challenge :) 
Any Unity stamps will do! )

This is a holiday themed one, 
but it's based on the same Everything Wonderful kit.
That means that you can use the frames from that kit for the new sentiments!
(and that's exactly what I did!)

With these pretty labels - 
I created some simple but elegant Christmas party crackers.
You can fill them up with chocolates, and even some joke or a fortune,
to spice up your next party!

The party cracker file is a free file, 
but you must go to my Halloween Crackers project on the SVG Cuts blog -
and click the FREE FILE portion under Dimensions section to download :)

A few more pics to show how pretty they are!
