Merry Christmas 
Sweet Blends

I hope you enjoying this day and got lots of goodies from Santa for being Good this Year!

Today is my day to share my Day 2 Growing In Unity Post for this week.  Each and every day this week, I have and will be sharing a project I have created using my ALL TIME Favorite Stamps EVER . . . . Unity Stamps!

It is quite the honor for me to have this opportunity and I want to properly THANK
everyone involved in making this possible for me!  
Thanks Unity Stamp Co.  and TEAM

I am glad you are stopping in today because each day that you stop to see my Unity Project, you will be entered to WIN some Unity Stamps yourself!

A random winner will be chosen at the end of the week to receive
2 itty bitty
of their choice

For my project today, I decided to create a "Pizza Box" Gift Box to hold the personalized bracelets I am making for my Mother and Sisters.

I followed the tutorial from my Sweet Friend, Sarah Hamer, at Pink Cricut.
Here is a link to the super easy to follow video she posted so you can try to make these yourself!

As I started gathering supplies, I wasn't sure which color schemes I would be using.   I gained some inspiration from the Unity Challenge - Non Traditional Christmas Colors on a Project.  I like to step outside of my comfort zone from time to time, and try some new things.

So, I opted to go with some Blues and Browns and Black and White.  I think that is acceptable, yes?    The base card stock is a desert sand color.  I used some scraps of the BoBunny Double Dot Sugar card stock I had left from my Day 1 card.  The other papers are by  Authentique.

I chose to use the PEACE stamp by Unity  Stamp Co.  which is from the {ippity} set called Kissmas & Mistletoe.  

I inked PEACE on the belly band that will hold the box closed and on the inside flap for added fun. 

I added a bit of aqua colored bling around the swirls on the Belly Band.
As simple as that, I have a completed gift box that is already decorated, so no need for additional wrapping! 

Now, I won't share all of the bracelets I am making until later next week probably.   With 7 sisters, I really should have maybe gotten a little more of a "head start" since I have to go to visit with all of them in just a few hours...LOL!  Nonetheless, I hope they are surprised when the see their very own.
Stop over TODAY to do some shopping  with Unity  Stamp Co.   Angela is such a doll, and she offers up sales ALL the time.  So check back often to be sure you don't miss any of the amazing deals being offered.

Thanks for stopping in today.
