Practical Scrappers BLOG HOP! WOOHOOO!





Thank you for stopping by my blog during the Practical Scrappers Designer Blog Hop. Today I have created a few projects to share with you. The first is a simple lunchbox tin that I made for a friend and filled with goodies. You will notice that it is NOT traditional Valentines colors and I love it that way. (Thank you Okie for the cut file!)

The second is a set of homemade 1.75 by 1.75 altered blocks to spell the word "CREATE". Thank you honey for cutting these for me. I painted each one and only covered the top and one side of them. I love to create, as I know most of you do too so I thought this was appropriate for the theme of Love or Valentines. I used various patterned papers, thickers, ribbons, paint, clear buttons, SONGBIRD Cricut Cartridge for the font, flat backed pearls, and prima flowers for these projects. I loved making them and hope the friends like them as well.


Are you ready for some yummy blog candy? I am giving away this super cute clear stamp set to one lucky winner. Unfortunately I can only ship to the U.S. at this time. In order to qualify you need to become a follower here and leave a comment on this post. I will announce the winner on Monday, January 25th so make sure to check back in!

  7. Oh Crystal ... I love both of these projects. The little lunch box is super cute, and I'm with you, being non-Valentine colors makes it more useful all year! And those blocks are super cute too, a great addition to accessorize your scrap room.
