Made with Heart Valentine Blog Hop!

Friday, January 21, 2011


Happy FRIDAY and welcome to the Made With Heart Valentine Blog Hop! I am so excited to participate in this hop. My crafty friend Kristin from Paper Therapy has done all the hard work to organize this, so I thank you for that Kristin, and also for inviting me to join in on the hop! :) There are 16 designers whose blogs are listed below, and if you'd like to start from the beginning, click below on Kristin's link, and then you can make a complete hop through everyone's blogs! Some are offering blog candy, so I encourage you to check them ALL out! Thanks for stopping by, I would love to hear your comments, and if you're new to my blog and like my work, I invite you to become a follower!


I have seen many cards in blogland using a Kraft and Red color combo, and I think it is just beautiful. I used a Spellbinders Impressability called Fleur De Lis for the embossed pattern in the background. To make it pop more, I used a sponge to apply some white craft ink over it. I really like that look. It's so fun playing around and trying new techniques. I love learning new stuff! ;-)

If you're hopping in order from the list below, then your next stop is PAULA'S BLOG.
