Smitten Blog Hop

Welcome to the Smitten Blog Hop!

You will be hopping with the same talented Makers who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop. For this hop we are featuring art work from the SMITTEN Special. You will be sure to see some beautiful artwork!

If you are just arriving here from BECCA-EXPRESSIONS, or just starting at my blog then you are on the right track ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating Makers on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 7 Makers participating and you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

So I love this paper pack and think it will make some great Valentine’s creations. I decided to use it in another way. I had some photos printed and was looking for the right papers, Smitten was perfect! I used the Make it from Your Heart Volume 3 pattern 8.

I focused on the Nectarine and Capri colors. I used the a Stencil from the Stencil Bundle or Stencil Pack 2 (which is currently not available) with Spiced Marmalade and Mermaid Lagoon Distressed Oxide Inks to make the stars. I did spritz them with a fine mist of water. I used my Cricut to cut the Family and the “Time” is stamped using For All Occasions stamp set.

Here is the right side. I cut the star using my Cricut and used my White Gel Pens to create the stitched look.

Your next stop is along this hop is MY HEARTFELT SENTIMENTS  so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!

Heart 2 Heart ~ Important Things

I hope your 2019 is of to a great start!! The new year always brings new beginnings and this year is no exception. This year I have taken on a new venture… becoming a member of the Design Team for Heart 2 Heart!  I am so excited to participate as part of this Design Team!

To kick of the new year at Heart 2 Heart we are are featuring the IMPORTANT THING(S) for our design challenge.  Focus on what is Important to you and share your artwork with us. 

For me (and probable many others people) Family one of the Important Things.  I wanted to highlight my family by using the awesome National Papercrafting Frame from Close To My Heart.  I had this photo from a couple years ago of my son, husband and I, which would be perfect for my Magnolia Frame.

I used the “N” Chipboard letter to highlight our last name.  I then covered it with one of the Seasonal Mix in Papers, which unfortunately this particular paper just retired.  I then cut our last name using my Cricut with the Babette font on Charcoal Cardstock.

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us your IMPORTANT THINGS projects. You have until the end of January to link up with this challenge. 

Happy Crafting!
