Valentine's Blog Hop is Here!!!

Thank You all for joining us today for this very fun and exciting Valentine's Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Kara's Blog. If you just happened to stop here first then hop on over to Jillian's Blog to start. You do not want to miss anything on this hop. This hop is filled with exciting projects and giveaways!! There is also going to be a USTREAM tonight at 7 PM Central. If you go to Jillian's Blog you will find out all about it. 

I made 2 projects for the hop today. My first project is a Layout I made for Valentine's Day. I am hoping to just add my pictures when I get them done. Everything was made using the Sweethearts Cartridge.

Here is the recipe for the Layout:
Tree @ 9.10"
Couple @ 7"
Cupid @ 4"
Sweethearts @ 2.5" including shadow
Strips @ 4"
Photo Mats are 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 and 4 x 5 1/4

I got the paper from the Dollar Spot at Target a while ago. It's pretty nice weight. 

The next project I have for you is a Gatefold Card. It is my first one I have ever made so I am really excited about it. 

I also got the patterned paper for this in the Dollar Spot at Target and they were in a pack that was cut at 5 x 7 for you already.

Card is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
2 1/2 x 4 cut twice for the front panel flaps
Scallop Circle @ 3.5"
Circle @ 2.90"
Lips @ 2"
Inside Mat is 5 1/4 x 4

Thank You so much for stopping by!!! I'm so excited you could make it.

Your next stop is KAREN

Here is the list for the hop just in case you get lost:

Love the card with the lips and the LO is cute too. My Target never has cute paper like this or hardly any paper crafting goodies at all for that matter.
