Cooking with Cricut 2nd Blogaversary Blog Hop!


Hello my friends and welcome to Day 1 of the Paper Crafting World and Cooking with Cricut's Blogaversary Blog hop! Our Design Teams are so excited to bring you a two-day hop that focuses on projects honoring a second anniversary: cloth, crystal or glass.

We think you will be blown away by some of the super creative inspiration and interpretation of our designers. So be sure to come back both days as each day will be a different set of designers and projects!

PLUS, this hop is the kick off of our week long celebration! Each day for a whole week we will be bringing you fabulous projects made by our designers and each day we will be giving away free vintage graphics, digital printables and/or electronic cutting files! So you will want to make CWC-PCW a daily stop for the next week!

You should have arrived here from the lovely and talented Natt from Awesomeness of Crafting. If you've joined us in mid-hop and would like to check out all the other fantastic projects head on over to PCW-CWC and start at the beginning. There are several prizes to be won so be sure to head over and join the fun at CWC-PCW. There is also a "cloth, crystal or glass" challenge you can enter to win as well as other super blog candy just for being a follower and commenting, so don't miss out!

For my project I decided to make a card, and add some glossy accents for a crystal like look. I apologize that it is a little hard to see the crystal in the picture, so you will just have to trust me ;)

For the card I used scraps from the beautiful My Mind's Eye Follow Your Dreams collection. It was a very quick and easy card (I'm a big fan of CAS). I used an MS lace border punch, and the butterfly is from the Hannah Montana cart. Here is a close-up of the butterfly:
If you can't see the glossy accents very well, you can probably at least see where I went outside the lines with it, lol!

I also have a little bit of blog candy to give away today. My one year blogaversery is August 3rd, and I made a goal to reach 200 followers by then. I am just 32 away! So if you could help me out and become a follower and leave me a message that you did, or that you already are, I will pick one random person to win a Cricut Imagine cartridge: Vintage Papers!! I am simply in LOVE with this cart and so I wanted to share it with one of you! Here is what you could get:


















Thanks for stopping by! Head on over to Marji at Tiggerscraps to see what she has cooked up for you!

  1. Beautiful card, Heather! Love the color palette you used. (Glossy accents are so hard to photograph -- but you can catch a glimmer of shine in your photos.)
