Cooking With Cricut Sweet Shop Blog Hop - 2nd Post

Welcome to Scrappin' Sista 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've come from visiting Cathie at Creative Cutter Room, you're 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.

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!


I have two projects to share today.  The first are the simple Valentines that were created for my kids' groups in the after-school program.  The hearts were cut using Plantin Schoolbook.  Then we stamped one set with Inkadinkado stamps and the other was embossed with Sixxix hearts.




The other project is a simple card that I created using a beautiful digi created by Melin at Cooking with Cricut.  I colored it using Bic Mark-It markers.  The sentiment was typed on the computer.



 On my blog, I'm offering the Swirly Heart Frame, Border, Corner Flourish and Heart Set (cutting file only). To be eligible, leave a comment with a way to reach you on both today's post and tomorrow's post. I will check. You will have until Sunday at Midnight to comment. At that time, commenting will be closed. Be sure to include a way to contact you. If I don't hear from you, I'd love to contact you but I'm not going to hunt you down. LOL!!!


Here is the “secret” letter you need to collect to be eligible for a prize package at CookingWithCricut.com. "H"


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.

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.
4. Or just leave a comment at CookingWithCricut.com and let us know how you liked our Sweetshop Blog Hop.

I created two different projects for your viewing pleasure today. The first is an altered candy box. I didn't like how it turned out but my 6 year old son did the "directing" when I colored it and my 9 year old daughter who is SUPER critical approved it! So, I said, NO STRESSING, go with it.
