Welcome to the Thankful Thursday Design Team 
Valentine Blog Hop, brought to you by Crazy 
About Cricut. If you are joining me from my 
Design Team Sister Jenny at:
Then you are in the right place. If you just
happened across my blog and would like to 
play along in our fantastic hop you can go to:

And start at the beginning.  I know all my Design 
Team Sisters did a fantastic job on this Blog Hop.
Please make sure to check out each Blog and tell 
them how much you loved their project.

For todays project I decided I would try to weld a 
heart on the cake slice from the Tags, Bags, Boxes 
& More cartridge. You can find the cake slice on 
page 126. I haven't used my Gyspy in a long time 
and though I should get back to using it more often. 
I cut out the box at 11.95 X 9.59 and placed the heart 
from TBBM in the center of the cake slice. 

My daughter Emily (11) asked Santa for the new
Flower Shoppe Cricut Projects cartridge for Christmas
and I asked to borrow it to make this flower. I love
how the petals are in the shape of hearts. You can find
this flower on page 14.  I cut it out at 2 inches. I can 
tell you it is not the easiest flowers to put together.
I will be making more of them to get a better idea of 
how to make them easier. 

The ruffles on the sides of the boxes are from one of 
Martha Stewart's paper edge punches.  And the Love
stamp is a very old Studio G $1.00 stamp.  I reused the 
heart that was cut out from the "window" and placed it
under the flower after I chalked the edges to give it some
depth. The "window" is a sheet protector that I cut to fit
the heart shape.  I filled the box with crinkle tissue and 
Hershey Kisses because who doesn't LOVE chocolate!!

Who Doesn't love Blog Candy!!  If you would like
to be entered into my Blog Candy drawing please
leave me a little Blog Love with a Lovely comment.
And if you would Love to follow me that would be 
great but it is not a requirement to be entered.  

Now that you have seen my Valentine treat box for
todays Blog Hop please head on over to my Design
Team Sister Heather to check out her project for today.
I know she has made a fantastic video for todays Hop.

Here is the line up in case you get lost or need 
to stop along the way.

I hope you Loved my Valentine treat box as much as
I loved making it to show you.

I know you will get inspired on this Blog Hop to make your
own Valentine craft projects. I hope you have a fun crafty day.

Sweet Wishes, Sharon

Today over at My Cricut Craft Room is Christmas
Count Down Day. On the 25th of every month the 
Design Team will show you lots of Christmas craft

These are the tags that I made to go with my Christmas
presents.  I actually found paper at Hallmark that said
No Peaking.  It was so cute!  I ran out before I could 
take a picture to show you.  

To make these tags I used TBBM and cut out the tag 
on page 90 with the hole option on. I cut them first
with the regular setting at 4" and then with the shadow
at 4" again.  The numbers were cut from Winter 
Woodland.  And can be found on pages 33 & 36.
They were cut at 2 1/2". The holly came from 2 
different cartridges. Winter Woodland on page 41
and Christmas Cheer on page 112. They were 
both cut at 1". The stamps are from the Studio G 
stamp line.  I love getting the perfect stamp for 
only $1.00.

I hope I have given you some early Christmas inspiration
to start making your tags for this year.  Please head over
to My Cricut Craftroom to take a look at what my other
Design Team sisters have created for today. 

I hope you have a wonderful day and please come
back again soon for more great craft ideas.

Sweet Wishes, Sharon
