Scrapbookpal VALENTINE blog hop!

If you are here for Frosted Designs please scroll down!

SCROLL DOWN FOR MY LAST PROJECT FOR JANUARY USING ROCK PRINCESS

Welcome! I sure hope you are staying warm this weekend! I am so excited to bring you some Valentine scrappy goodness thanks to the wonderful people at Scrapbookpal.com. I know I know you think I only "plug" them because I design for them but seriously who else on the Internet has FREE shipping on orders over 25???? AWESOME! And they are super fast so that is a plus! I love the selection they have and they are always staying competitive!

You should have arrived to my blog from the wonderful and sweet JAMIE. Isn't she super talented? I love her to pieces! If you are just arriving please start at the beginning HERE. After you finish cruising my creation you will head over to the amazing LEAH. Remember to comment on ALL the blogs and let Scrapbookpal.com know you enjoyed and finished the blog hop to be in the running for a FREE CARTRIDGE OF YOUR CHOICE! Good luck!

So with that said here is what I came up with for this weekend! This is what I started out with!

This is what I made! I love it. I used the new K&Company Sweet Nectar for the pattern paper. So let's get cooking!










To make this sweet little container you will need the following ingredients:

April Showers Cricut Cartridge
Cricut Expression
12X12 Mat
ATG and adhesive
Chestnut Roan ink
Barn Door Distress inker

Distress Inker Applicator
Glossy Accents
Ribbon
Letter and accent stickers
Candy

1. Using your 12X12 mat, Cricut Expression, and APRIL SHOWERS cut the banner shadow at 2.5 inches three times using white card stock.

2. Ink the banner using barn door distress ink pad and the applicator.

3. Ink the edges in chestnut roan.

4. Adhere letter and accent stickers to spell LOVE YOU

5. Cut patterned paper circles to fit on container, adhere with ATG tape.

6. Cut butterfly icon out, remove butterfly, adhere to top fill in negative space with glossy accents.

7. Using two leftover pieces of the banner attach "11" and adhere to top of container.

8. Decorate with ribbon, and fill with candy.

Super simple and fun to give. I hope you like it!
