NinaB Designs Blog Hop

Hello, friends! After a much needed summer break, the NinaB Designs team is back to showcase some of Nina's designs for our monthly hop. Make sure you check out the new Summer CHA Releases by SpellbindersWant2Scrap and Penny Black, and her monthly release by The Craft's Meow. For this month's hop, Nina challenged us to create something with gift-giving in mind. Here is my project:

I made some Lemon-Poppy Seed Zucchini Bread and using stamps/dies packaged it for gift giving.  I used the leaves from Foliage Fancy (a stamp set illustrated by Nina for Penny Black) and combined it with a sentiment from Sew Lovely (The Craft's Meow).  The tag was made using Spellbinders dies: Home Sweet Home.




Here are the products I used for my project:




To welcome you back to our hop, we are giving away these TWO PRIZE PACKAGES:
Prize Package #1 includes Spellbinders Ironworks Accents and Motifs:
Prize #2 includes The Craft's Meow's Vintage Rides and Retired Layers of Colors Dotted Dahlias and Dotted Peonies Stamp sets:
 
Winners will be picked randomly from 2 of the designers' blogs:
The winners will be announced September 22 on Nina's blog.  Finally, please consider liking the following Facebook pages that are represented on today's hop, so you don't miss the latest news and happenings:

 I hope we'll inspire you all today! Happy hopping! 
Blessings,

Adrienne Crist said...

How pretty! Love the idea of wrapping the loaves, double the thoughtfulness. I adore that Dalia stamp set, I've never seen that before, I'm sad it's retired :(.
Laughing at your 40 comment, it seems it is tougher for my mind to keep track of details like it used to...afraid it's all downhill from here on! At least we grow wiser as we grow older ;)
Blessings,
Adrienne
