Hello Hoppers, and Happy Monday!
Today at Exploring Cricut we have new challenge for you, and a BLOG HOP! Our full lineup for the day is at the bottom of this post.
If you've been hopping with us already, then you're here from Jen's blog - Wasn't her project so inspiring? Our challenge this round is to create a card, layout or papercraft for Valentine's Day, and include at least one jewel. I was in a swap recently where I had to decorate a gift bag. The lady I made mine for wanted a bag that captured her love of chocolate for Valentine's Day. Here's what I sent to her:
I used Cricut cartridges Sweet Shop, Sweet Treats and From My Kitchen for all of the chocolate goodies. I embellished each cut to make every 'bite' extra special... here are a few close ups:
I used glossy accents on most of the chocolate to give is a 'syrup-y' look and used lots of stickles for some pop. My gem is on the slice of cake - did you catch them? 4 little pearls on the icing :)
I also added a tag to match the bag:
Speaking of candy...
Who wants some?
Blog Candy that is!
I am offering this 6x6 "Be Mine" paper pad from Echo Park to one lucky person! All you have to do is 1.) Become a follower of my blog (if you're not already), and 2.) Tell me in a comment what your favorite candy is. Please also leave your email address so I can contact you if you're the winner. I will use random.org to pick a winning comment on Sunday Night (2/16). Personally, I can't imagine life without Junior Mints!!!
Don't forget to head on over to Exploring Cricut and submit your Valentine's Day paper craft - We'd love to see how you inspire us!
Ok, on with the hop. Following is our full lineup - if you're joining mid-hop, please go back and visit all of the other blogs for inspiration today. Next up is Michelle S. - Just wait and see how she inspires you today!
Happy Valentine's Day to all!
