Hio Hop Thursday 12-18

Welcome to Unity Stamp Company's Hip Hop Thursday for this December 18th. We're counting down to Christmas. Do you still have gifts to make? i do! :) Its a handmade year for us this year.

If you haven't joined me from Maren's blog start at Angela's blog. Follow the blog links and do the hop!! Be inspired by all the beautiful Unity projects along the way, and enter for a chance to win some blog candy at the end.

Since I'm under the gun, my examples this week revolve around the tags I needed for gifts.

My first project uses the Trinity Trio single to jazz up the cookie basket I sent in with my husband to his work.



My second project is a gift tag. I recycled some shipping boxes, and made corrugated tags with them. The Do Not Open single was perfect.




Here's another one... (I have to confess - for someone who loves paper as much as I do, I am TERRIBLE at giftwrapping. So please focus only on the tag - not the mess underneath it...)


I have candy today!! Some gorgeous singles, directly from me to you. Post a comment and I will pick a winner tonight after I get home from work.



Thank you for stopping by!!!

As always, Angela has some fabulous Hip Hop specials for today only, pls some new releases!! Check out Angela's blog for the specials.

Your next stop is Jimmi's blog. Enjoy the rest of your hop! Hip Hop!

ETA - LuvLee won the blog candy!!! Pls PM me your addy via SCS???

Thanks for playing everyone.
