Growing In Unity Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Today is  Growing in Unity Blog Hop for the Growing in Unity Gals from July and August. It was so fun to be able to have been a GIU gal and I'm happy to play along today.  You should have just come from Roni's Blog.  Be sure to leave a comment on each stop for a chance to win one of 2 Unity filled prize packs!

For my hop card, I used the fabulous Aging Gorgeously - July 2020 Sentiment Kit. This kit has a lot of sentiments and this beautiful flower stamp.  There is also a fun stamp with 4 candles on it!

I choose some purple Copic Markers to color in my flowers with green stems.  Then I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers. I stamped the sentiment on a banner I die cut out and used foam tape to attach it.  Then I added some purple enamel dots.

You're next stop on the hop is Allison. Head over to check out her amazing project!

Here's the hop order to be sure you comment on all the blogs to win a prize!

Have a wonderful day!

Halloween Take Out Boxes with Annie's Paper Boutique

Hello Trendy Twine fans! Welcome to the first day of October. The design team is so excited to be crafting for the upcoming holidays, that we decided to have a guest design team group join in all the fun! Today we are having a group post with both the regular design team AND the guest design team to get the creativity flowing for the Halloween season. Please join us in welcoming the amazing guest designers! Be sure to hop over to the Trendy Twine blog to see the projects from all of the Trendy Twine Gals!

My Trendy Twine color is Grape Licorice and we are all using the Clear Mini Take Out Boxes. In addition, I used the Happy Halloween Stamp Set, Grape Tag-Its, Grape Licorice Batty Sequins and Trendy Page Dots.

I filled my boxes with 5 mini Peppermint Patties.  They were a perfect fit for the Clear Mini Take Out Boxes and I they were purple wrapped to match my twine. Next I made a band around the box.  It's not perfect in the back, but I made it work 😉

Next, I trimmed down my Grape Tag-Its a bit and stamped and embossed my sentiment from the Happy Halloween Stamp Set on it.  Then I added my Trendy Page Dots and the Grape Licorice Batty Sequins.  Finally, I made a Grape Licorice Trendy Twine tail for the tag.

Please be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the projects from the Design Team and the Guest Designers!

Have a great day!
