Frosted Designs Gift of Giving Blog Hop!!!!

Hello there fellow crafters!!!  Welcome to our "Gift of Giving" Blog Hop!


With the holiday season lurking just around the corner, we decided to give our members some ideas for fabulous handmade items that can be gifted this year!  Our Design Team has been working really hard so sit back and enjoy the show as you "hop" along with us!

As you hop along, you will notice each Design Team member has a "secret" word on their blog that makes a quote.  Be sure to write it down and email Brandimatos@gmail.com with your completed quote!  After you've completed the hop, come back here (the Frosted Designs Blog) and leave us a comment letting us know.  One winner will be randomly selected from the comments to win a $20.00 Gift Certificate to the Frosted Designs Store!!!!

My "secret" word for you is ARE :-)

We also have some other fabulous prizes up for grabs! 
Creative Embellishments is offering up a $20.00 Gift Certificate to their AMAZING online store full of chipboard, stamps, flair, and more!!!! 

Regina from The Cutting Cafe has generously offered winner's choice for THREE SETS of their choosing to her online store FULL of digi stamps and cut files for EVERY occasion (no, seriously... EVERY occasion!!)!!!!!

For my project, I decided to create a Fall themed banner for my mother using previous and current month's kit!  Here's a look:







I started by cutting up several pattern papers from the kits into triangles and inking the edges.  I added trim from the Garden of Abundance kit to the top of each piece!

Using the doily stencil from the We Are Family kit and the distress ink from this month's Rustic Beauty kit, I created a pattern on one of the triangles :-)

I used the same papers from the We Are Family kit and the Garden of Abundance kit and cut strips to create my rosettes, inking the edges as well.  I added the sticker letters from last month's kit to create my "Happy Fall" sentiment!


I finished the banner with some jute and small mini roses!  


I am also offering a prize to one lucky participant of the blog hop!!!  All you have to do is be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment below letting me know you're hopping along!  One person will be drawn at random to receive a "bits and pieces" giveaway from past kits  and other FD goodies!!!


So what are you waiting for?!?  Let's get hopping!!! 
Here is the line-up in case you get lost along the way:













You have until midnight on November 14th to "hop" along with us!  As you hop, be sure to write down the "secret" word from each member's blog.  Once you've completed the hop, you'll have a completed quote!  Email that to brandimatos@gmail.com for your chance to win one of the fabulous prizes listed above!!!!

Most importantly, HAVE FUN!!!!!!  
Happy Scrapping :-)
