ICS Blog Hop Grapefruit Grove

Hello friends! Welcome to our Inspired, Create, & Share Blog Hop. Our theme for April is monochromatic with a feminine emphasis.  I'm loving our So Sentimental bundle for my projects.

The So Sentimental bundle includes the So Sentimental cling stamp set and the Stitched so Sweetly dies.

I selected Grapefruit Grove as my focus color.  I am sad that this color is soon to retire on June 3rd.  Don't wait to stock up on all of your favorite 2018-2020 In Colors before they are sold our forever!

The Sweetly Stitched dies are very sweet and feminine - these rectangles are so quick and easy to layer.

Our Printed gusseted cello bags have a great design to go with my confetti theme.   I packaged 6 suckers in this cute bag.

I "created" a solution to attach my label to my bag.  I made a little loop of card stock.  Curved it with my bone folder and then used Tear and Tape to adhere it to the back of the tag.  Then my twine could run through the loop and tie around the cello bag.

I knotted the twine and let the tails hang down.

I hope you like my feminine confetti celebration project duo!  All of my supplies are listed at the end of my post.
