Sweetshop Blog Hop

Welcome to Love4stamps and the CookingWithCricut.com Sweetshop Blog Hop!  If you’ve never enjoyed a blog hop before, it’s where you ‘hop’ between blogs following a chain of links, with each blog in the chain posting something exciting for the event! There will even be some great blog candy (giveaways) to win along the way! More on that in a moment!

If you are visiting from Nicole's  awesome blog then you are in the right place. If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to CookingWithCricut.com and start at the beginning. Go HERE CookingWithCricut.com.

With Valentine’s Day just a few days away we are sharing some wonderful ideas and inspiration for your viewing and crafting pleasure!  Each Design Team member will be featuring an original project each day (Saturday & Sunday) made especially for this hop. Make sure to check out each DT member's blog and collect the special letter there.   There will be prizes along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be some nice PRIZES with a few different ways to win at CookingWithCricut.com!

OKay so let me share how I made this and what it is. lol. With all the talk of sweets amongst the dt I was hungry. AND that made me think about my girls, they look to cook. So because of this I decided to make them a cookbook. They LOVED it!!!!!! So it was made out of one brown paper bag. I cut it down to 10" and then scored it at 5". I then just decorated it. I left the flaps open and as you can see I put recipe cards in there. :)

I really want to share what I used...
 
Cricut- SCAL2, Sweets title is from http://www.page-kits.com/
Embellishments- embossing powder, corner rounder
Paper- All of the paper is from a paper stack
Stamps-Bubbly from Pink By Design (on the heart and then I embossed it) 
Adhesive- atg
 
Here is the “secret” letter you need to collect to be eligible for a prize package at CookingWithCricut.com.  _D_ 

Now it's your turn! Let’s see your sweet Valentine projects. Be sure to include a Cricut or other die cut machine cut on your project and link it up at CookingWithCricut.com.   The Design Team will pick their three favorites and one lucky sweetheart will be chosen randomly to win one of the six prize packages being offered in this hop.

Next stop... Roberta's awesome blog. Go see what she has in store for you today.

And don’t forget, when you're done, make sure to head back to CookingWithCricut.com and get entered to win one of SIX prize packages!  Here’s how: 

1. Link your sweet Valentine project and be one of the top three chosen by our Chefs.
2. Link your project and be the randomly drawn winner.
3. Collect all the letters and unscramble our “secret” phrase correctly and leave it in the special comment section on CookingWithCricut.com.
