Sweet Shop Blog Hop! with the Cooking with Cricut DT - DAY 1

Welcome to Croppin Momma Designs and the CookingwithCricut.com Sweet Shop 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 to win along the way! More on that in a moment!

If you've come from visiting Michelle at Purple Monkey Moments, 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!

So without further ado, here is my Valentine Banner...










Here's what you'll need to make it:
Birthday Bash (Banner)
Cindy Loo (Font and Shadow)
Sweethearts (All Black Images)
Plantin Schoolbook or other comparable (Circles and Heart)
(Little Tip: I used the top layer of the "O" from Ciny Loo and "Hide" the "O" part and layered it on top of the Heart and welded them to make the same effect.)

So, onto the prizes!! At each of the stops along the way the DT members will be giving away one of Melin's fabulous cutting files and/or digi stamps. Here is the one that I will be giving away:

Beautiful isn't it!

So, what do you have to do to win this fabulous prize? Just leave a comment under this post with a way to get a hold of you! That's it! I will draw a name on Monday! Remember leave a comment on both days posts for 2 chances to win!

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

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