Tags, Tags, Tags!

Good morning Unity Stamp Co. Peeps!

It's Wednesday and we are hopping a day early because of Thanksgiving in the US this week.

I am assuming that you have been following the hop along and started at the Unity blog and know all the 411 for this week.

AND... $.50 from every sale will go to the local food pantry!!!

Isn't it all so exciting!?!?! LOVING the sales and all that gorgeous new Bella Blvd!!!

This week for our hop, we have a Bags & Tags theme. You would think that the week of Thanksgiving that would automatically mean Christmas bags & tags, but I was so inspired by all these incredible new stamps, that I just let the stamps guide my Muse and ignored that we are right in the midst of the holiday season.

I created three tags with the new Bella Blvd. stamps.

Tag #1: Happy Birthday
Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Bella Blvd Sunny Happy Skies
*Unity Stamp Co. Bella Blvd Sweet Celebration Birthday
*shipping tag
*MME paper
*watercolor pencils
*Nestabilities Labels die
*Tattered Angels Mistletoe Glimmer Mist
*seam binding

Tag #2: Best Day Ever
supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Bella Blvd Sweet Celebration Birthday

It's also our last hip hop for the month which means flip-flop hip-hop where the Unity dt plays with Ippity stamps. There is so much going on this week that I don't think that too many of us played, but I had some new Ippity that NEEDED to get inky so I had to create a quick layout using a couple of the new kits....oh, and I stayed with our theme...TAGS!

This is a photo I took of Ben in October that I absolutely LOVE! 

The journaling says, "Ben has settled right into Texas life. This day, while looking so handsome in his cowboy hat, he was riding his John Deere....lawnmower!"

Supplies used:
*Ippity Farm Fresh
*Ippity Here & Now
*Ippity Book it
*Cosmo Cricket wanted paper
*Jillibean Soup paper
*Girls Paperie charm
*Pink Paislee brad
*Nestabilities Lacey dies
