Its another Blog Hop Inspired by Pillow Gift Hawaii













Here we go again! After last month's blog hop was such a super success, our awesome bunch of Stampin'Up trip achievers have decided to do it again!  You may have arrived here after visiting Kelly Acheson's blog and her lovely projects. I hope you enjoy my creations whilst you are here... take a moment to check out the video I have made too.


This time it was decided that the theme should be inspired by our Pillow Gifts from our recent trip to Waikiki.  You've already seen some of my photos from the trip (and there are more over on my Facebook business page if you are keen to see them), and I do know you've already seen some of the pillow gifts we received from Stampin'Up each day were were there.  Here again is a picture of the one that inspired me for this 1st project:





And at the top of this page you can see the tote bag that I created with the Fry Box die.  I thought you might like to see how I made it, so I created a little video to show how easy it is to do:




And because I had another idea in mind as well I thought I'd show that too. Here is the gorgeous necklace that we received as a gift from Stampin'Up on our last evening of the trip:





I liked the silver Hibiscus and created a similar idea with the soon-to-be-retired Flower Frenzy die.  Its simple, but hopefully you can see where I gained my inspiration:









Enjoy the blog hop... thanks for stopping by!  Click the "Next" button to move on to the next blog... its the clever Karina Chin who has created something wonderful to show you.  Come back and visit again soon!

Too cool Linda! Great projects - I totally adore the Burlap bag inspiration because it is so perfectly co-ordinated! But the inspiration that you took for the necklace is awesome too. Love them both. Mahalo Shanni
