Sweet Shop Blog Hop - Day 2

If you missed my post from yesterday with all the Hop Info go HERE...and if you want to start at the beginning of the hop from yesterday go HERE (there are lots of great projects and goodies).

 Welcome to the 2nd day of the Sweet Shop Blog Hop!!

You should have just come from Michelle at Purple Monkey Moments and if so 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 HERE.

So, here is the project that I made for today. I used my YourStory Photo for this project.


The first thing that I did was cut a Cheerios box up into 5 - 5x7 pieces of cardstock using my Fiskars trimmer. It worked much better to cut them then I thought.


The next things that I did was cover each of the 5 pieces with Valentine's paper, front and back.


Next, I cut out a square at 4.25 x 4.25" from the Plantin cartridge and made it into a little pocket that I adhered to each of the pages on the right side. I then cut out tags at 2.78 x 4" for each of the pockets using the Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More cartridge and hole punched them and tied a ribbon on them.


After I had the pockets and tags assembled I cut out a few of the images from the Sweethearts cartridge in black to accent the pages.


On each of the tags I plan on writing a little note to my husband for Valentine's Day (sorry folks, you don't get to see those).




On the left side of the booklet I am planning on putting some pictures of the two of us along with some pictures that my kids have drawn.

The cover I also made using the Sweethearts cartridge (Couple Standing @ 1.87 x 4", the Perfect Pair @ 3 x 3.39"), my NEW i-Rock to add some bling and my cuttlebug and hearts folder.

Hope that you enjoyed my project, now head over to Raven's blog, Love 4 Stamps, and see what she has in store for you! Remember before you go to leave a comment on my blog to win the fabulous prize that I am giving away tomorrow (comment on yesterday's post for an extra chance to win).
