Growing in Unity Blog Hop

Time for the Growing in Unity blog hop! If you remember, back in August I was one of Unity's "Growing in Unity" gals. Every other month there's a hop of the latest GIU gals where we share one final project. For mine, I'm using the set that I received for my GIU week- Pick Your Poison. I've been looking at the set for quite a while and finally decided that it was time to get it.

I made this card, based off of Julie Davison's card, from the fun Pick Your Poison set and American Crafts and Stampin' Up materials.

I hope you enjoy this card and encourage you to hop around to the other sites. Make sure you leave a comment here and at all the other stops- you could be one of the winners!

 Your next stop is Jeanette's blog.

If you've started here or gotten off-track, here's the entire hop list:

Gifts for an office-supply loving girly girl

We have a birthday party to attend to tomorrow. The birthday girl is VERY girly and apparently very into office supplies. I don't ask questions. lol! I made her a small selection of girly office supplies: a set of tapes we bought, covered regular sized and mini post-it pads, a labelled jar of multi-colored paperclips, and a post-it on a mini-clipboard. I also made a small bag to hold some purchased push-pins and extra post-it pads.

Projects from my Halloween class

This month I held a Halloween projects class. There was a test tube holder and two cards, one which everyone made, one that participants were able to pick from a few samples. I was having a bad mojo morning so I went and dug around on Pinterest. Instead of finding one card, I found several I cased for samples.


Julie Davison: (please ignore the glue smears below the web. Those have a black bat to cover them in their future. lol!)

My Homegrown Art (no longer a live site)

This one is based off of a card made by my friend LeAnne Pugliese. I saw hers two years ago and have wanted to recreate it ever since.

Projects from my "Small Gifting for the Holidays" class

Last month I held a small gifting class. Yeah. It was last month. It's now the end of this month. I'm a bit late posting this but at least I'm getting it posted! Sheesh! ;)

There were 6 projects in all.
1. Sour cream container (not pictured)
2. Topped sleeve of 3 Hershey's nuggets
3. Star bag
4. Post-it cover
5. Votive/box
6. Gift card holder (not pictured)

I'm planning to make a bunch more of some of these for an upcoming Holiday Bazaar I'll be participating in.
