Love is in the Air! Blog Hop

Welcome to the Love is in the Air blog hop hosted by Paulette from Around the Block with scrapalette! You should have arrived here from Sharon's blog.  If you didn't, you can go to Around the Block with scrapalette to kick off your inspiration and have a chance to win some great blog candy along the way.  Our projects are all about love and Valentine's Day. 
 
For this hop, I created another valentine card/banner (see previous posts for other examples).  The main concept of the valentine is that it is 3D!  





Materials Used:
  • Cricut cartridges Art Philosophy and Sweet Tooth Boxes
  • My Pink Stamper Flowers & Friendship stamp set
  • Cuttlebug Sentimentals embossing folder set
  • Colorbok Flea Market cardstock stack
  • Stampin' Up Old Olive, Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze cardstock
  • Core'dinations Sugar and Spice cardstock stack
  • Ranger Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink
  • Stampin' Up Pewter hodgepodge hardware
  • Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon
  • Cricut cartridge shell acrylic
Here are the files for all three valentine banners I posted this week.  They are color coded in the Craft Room file to designate which mats go with which banner.  It's a great feature!

Here are the files for all three valentine banners I posted this week. They are color coded in the Craft Room file to designate which mats go with which banner. It's a great feature!
