365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

# 33 Love Is In The Air Blog Hop


Welcome to my Blog and the Love Is In The Air Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Molly ARMY WIFE LEARNS THE CRICUT, you're in the right place. If you were just looking at my blog and want to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can start at the beginning at  http://www.crossmyhearpapercrafts.blogspot.com/. This blog hop is all about love themed ideas..

For my project I made a bouqet of roses from the Forever Young Cricut cartridge. I used all Valentine's Day themed paper from K & Co. Each rose has 3 different layers of flowers to complete each rose. I find the best way to adhere them together is with a hot glue gun. The can is a recycled Pineapple can can yum yum! I adhered the paper on the can with my ATG adhesive and it sticks perfectly. I added lace on top and bottom and cut each bamboo skewer in half since they were too long. Then after I bunched them all together I tied some pink lace to hold them together. I have been wanting to make this project for so long I have been storing it in my head for over a year now LOL! I am glad I finally did the work because I love the way it came out!

I made some green hearts for leaves. The hearts are from Plantin Schoolbook.

Now for some Blog Candy! I will give away a Brand New I-Rock to one lucky follower. Just leave me a comment telling me what type of handmade flowers you like to make. Also, please be sure to check back tomorrow for some more blog candy that I will be giving away on my Love At First Sight Blog Hop!

I hope you enjoyed my project. Thank you for visiting my blog. Your NEXT STOP is my sister Joanna SCRAP-MAKING. Below is a list of all blog participants:

Hi Sandra, I love your flowers in a pot and I made something similar using an asparagus can cause it was tall and thin and I used the k&Co paper pack that had vintage paper in autum colors cant remember the name but I love K&CO paper packs must have most of them and I used Tim Holts paper roses. I watched one of his tutorials on how to make them and I made a pot of flowers for my mom and she loved them. It turned out nice. Yours is beautiful and so in touch with the upcoming holiday of love. I am a follower and thats acutally how I came across this blog tonight cause I was visiting you to get some inspiration and I came across the hop.

JANLYNN said...

Beautiful flowers. I haven't made too many flowers so most of mine have just been multi petal shapes stacked . I have watched several videos lately to see how these are done and they are next on my I have got to try this list. I love the curled petals. I am a master gardener and a plant nut to boot so I need to try these for sure. They would make such great centerpieces for some of our MG meetings and such.

~ AWESOME flowers! They are so cool! What a great project.

~ I'm a new Follower of your Blog!

~ I like to punch out flowers and fold/roll/crimp the edges to make them 3d ish and then stack/alter with other flowers of different sizes then put a brad or jewel on top. I also like to make half flowers by folding flowers in half and squishing them so they fan out a bit. I love flowers but those are my easy go-to flowers.

Hip Hop and Awaaaaayyy!
