We will also have 1 winner each day from the comments that will receive 1 Samantha Walker stamp set and coordinating dies.

So be sure to enjoy our hop both days, leave comments on all of the blogs each day and check back to see if you won!

(winners will be posted on Wednesday, October 19th on the Unity Blog and Spellbinders Blog)


You all know how much I LOVE my gift bags.  Decorating a plain brown kraft bag and making it into something special and personal is so much fun.  I think I am slightly addicted to this fun crafting method ;) For today's project I used Spellbinders die templates and Unity stamps with and a few pieces of patterned paper - here are the deets:

Spellbinders Paper Arts Supplies:

Unity Stamp Company
  • Blossom Stackers (Samantha Walker)
Other: Pebble's Paper, Ribbon, Kraft Bag, The Girls Loft Paper.




Ready to see more gorgeous Unity and Spellbinders inspiration? Thought so :) Next up is Christi Snow’s blog Altered Ambitions. Enjoy!

I hope you are having just as much fun as I am on this hop.  Don't forget to leave a comment here before you move on for your chance at winning some fab prizes!  Have a wonderful Monday and remember tomorrow the awesomeness continues with Day 2 of this huge event!

Hugs
