CWC Sweet Shop Blog Hop: Day 2: Sending you tons of love

Welcome to Jean's Crafty Corner and Day 2 of the CookingWithCricut.com Sweet Shop Blog Hop!  Thanks so much for joining us again for more Valentine's inspiration.  If you missed Day 1 of our hop, be sure to go back and check out all of yesterday's posts for great projects and giveaways along the way as well.


If you've come from visiting Gaby at Gaby Creates, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to Cooking with Cricut and start at the beginning.

For today, I made some small Valentine's cards with candy to share with you.  I began by using the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge to cut out two background shapes in different sizes so they could be layered.  Next, I used the Birthday Bash Cartridge to cut the elephant and the Storybook cartridge to cut a frame for my sentiment.  I then used waterfall colored stickles to add the water coming out of the elephant's trunk and then used a glue dot to secure a candy heart floating on the water.  Finally, I hand wrote the sentiment "Sending you tons of Love"  and added some faux stitching lines around the outside to finish off the cards.

Now, on to the blog candy that I am offering. I will be giving away a Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge and Melin has also given me a wonderful cut file which includes a lacy heart, border and love title that I will be giving away as well. (See pictures below) To be elgible for this giveaway, you must:

1) Become a follower if you are not already.
2) Leave a comment on this post (you can also get an additional entry by commenting on yesterday's post as well)

I will take all comments left on Yesterday and Today's Blog Hop Post and randomly select a winner for each prize on Monday, February 14th. There will be two winners: 1 for the cutfile and 1 for the cartridge.(Please note this is a new cartridge, however it is not in plastic packaging, because it came in a bundle this way.)


Also, don't forget you will find a secret letter at each stop that can be unscrambled to make a secret phrase for one of the giveaways at CookingwithCricut.com
Here is the “secret” letter you need to collect to be eligible for a prize package at CookingWithCricut.com. Y

Now it's your turn! Let’s see your sweet Valentine projects. Be sure to include a Cricut or other die cut machine cut on your project and link it up at CookingWithCricut.com. The Design Team will pick their three favorites and one lucky sweetheart will be chosen randomly to win one of the six prize packages being offered in this hop.

Next stop is Jenna at Jenna's Favorite Things.  Go see what she has in store for you today and remember to hop through the rest of the Design Team blogs to collect all of the letters for the secret phrase if you have not collected them yet.

And don’t forget, when you're done, make sure to head back to CookingWithCricut.com and get entered to win one of SIX prize packages being offered! Here’s how:

1. Link your sweet Valentine project and be one of the top three chosen by our Chefs.
2. Link your project and be the randomly drawn winner.
3. Collect all the letters and unscramble our “secret” phrase correctly and leave it in the special comment section on CookingWithCricut.com.
4. Or just leave a comment at CookingWithCricut.com and let us know how you liked our Sweet Shop Blog Hop.
