storage for my paper projects...come take a look!

giu (x...1?), day five!

Well, hello there! You've made it to the end of my Growing in Unity week, and I've had a lot of fun. I hope you've enjoyed the projects I've shared this week. Today, I have just one project for you, but it's a bit...busier...than some of the others I've shown you. Plus, it features both of our cats, so that should make Linds happy! ;) Don't forget to comment today and on the rest of this week's posts for a chance to win two Unity itty bitties of your very own -- more details on that at the end. Ok, let's go:


Hello, pattern-mixing! I realized I had this sheet of bird-print paper in my Counterfeit Kit (see more in Monday's post), and it's one that I was determined to use, so I made it the background for this page about my cats, who battled each other for the sunniest (and best bird-watching) spot in the house.


I also wanted to try out the DIY Thickers that I've had for awhile -- they're foam Thickers with adhesive on top, allowing you to add whatever you like -- I went with glitter, dunking the bottoms of the letters in one color and the tops in another (gold...like sunshine...right? Sure.) I got the two-tone-dunking idea from a video Shimelle -- or rather, Glitter Girl -- did a bit ago.


And of course, the Unity goodness. I used this summery Simple Stories co-brand set here to finish off my title, and I also used it up in the corner to house my journalling (which you can see in the first photo). I highlighted both images with some stickles, which I also used elsewhere (more sunshine-y goodness).

Well, I guess that's just about it! You have until the end of Sunday (11:59 EST) to leave comments on this week's posts, and sometime Monday I'll use random.org to find our winner. On Monday, I'll also show you my actual Counterfeit Kit...or what's left of it, anyway! So if you've been curious about the products you've been seeing, Monday's your day.

Enjoy your weekend, and go shop for some Unity! They have great sales going on...hint, hint!

I just found out that you are the Unity lady of the week. How great. I love this layout with your cats---I'd like to make one for my cat, Ari. He's adorable, too.

Really colorful and fun layout! I have 3 cats and always mean to scrap some photos of them but never seem to get around to it. Now I'm inspired to pull those photos out and go for it! Love your foam Thickers with the glitter !

I LOVE how you did the glitter. I'm inspired! The mix of papers is fantastic...love that bird pp in particular.

Eeek, I love the photos of Dexter and Simon sunning themselves! What perfect stamps to showcase your furbabies. I might need to get my hands on some of those DIY thickers even though I have no use for them! LOL
