American Crafts: Valentine's Day Blog Hop & Giveaway!

 photo ACBlogHopLogo.jpg


Good morning and welcome to the American Crafts Valentine's Day 2014 Blog Hop! Members of the American Crafts design team created projects to celebrate this holiday of love! I made this layout of two of my favorite valentines. I used black cardstock as the background to help the pink and white pop off the page. The chalkboard frame tags are part of the new DIY Shop collection.


I placed some of my favorite pink and white patterned papers inside the frames and then embellished with washi tape, stickers and die-cuts.


I layered a Dear Lizzy flower, epoxy sticker and Amy Tangerine brad.

What's a blog hop without a giveaway?! Just leave a comment on my blog post today sharing what you are doing to share the love with your favorite valentines. I'll post the random winner of these great American Crafts stamps next Friday, February 21st.



Here's a list of all the blog hop participants:

    1. PS - I forgot to say about our Valentine's Day ... I don't want to sound horrid, but we don't really do anything extra special now, we're coming up on our 29th wedding anniversary later this year and we have found that it is more fun to share our love everyday, all year through.
      THANK YOU for giving us the chance to win :)
