Share the Love Cricut Crawl

Welcome to the fourth Fantabulous Cricut Crawl - Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop! 

Valentine's Day is in a week and everyone at Fantabulous Cricut has decided to Share the Love!   Each Design Team member will be featuring an original valentine-themed project that includes the word LOVE somewhere on it.

If you've come from visiting Jordan at Cute Cute World, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at some of our DT members' blogs AND there will be a Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge (donated by Cut-n-Crop) at FCCB for one participant who submits a Share the Love project!
The other day, we were snowed in.  I spent a wonderful afternoon making cupcakes with my boys.  To spruce things up a bit, we added some paper hearts on little skewers to share the love!  The hearts and shadows were cut from Doodlecharms with the pink cardstock run through the Cuttlebug using a Love Language Small Hearts Folder.  In order to have everything look finished from all angles, we cut a flipped shadow and heart as well.  We glued the front and backs together, leaving a space at the bottom to hide the skewers between the two sides.  We also added the word “love” (cut from Walk in my Garden) on one side and an “xox” cut from Holiday Cakes on the other.  Although we had a great time putting everything together, the highlight was definitely the consumption of the cupcakes!
For this blog hop, I am offering a Smirk For Her 6x6 Designer Pack and a Fiskars Kids’ Birthday clear stamp set.  One lucky crafter will be drawn at random and announced here next Wednesday, February 16.  To enter, just leave a comment.  If you are a follower, you are welcome to leave a second comment telling me as such for an extra entry.

Now it's your turn! Let's see your Share the Love projects!  Make sure to include a Cricut cut and the word LOVE somewhere on your project!

Next stop...  Leinad's blog, Scrap Stickle Pop. Go see what she has in store for you today.  When you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!

Happy Crawling!
