SST Valentine's Day Blog Hop

  

Welcome to the Sistas Scrap Too! second blog hop! We had so much fun with our first hop that we decided to do a hop once a quarter. This is the hop for the first quarter of 2011 and we are glad you decided to join us! We have 13 designers working on our theme for this hop, which is none other than Valentine's Day. We've put a twist on it, asking the designers to use the colors red, black, and white in their designs. We can't wait to show you what we've come up with! Some of the Sistas went the traditional route and used traditional colors for their projects. What would craftin' be without creativity and diversity?! We know you'll enjoy what lies ahead on the hop route!!

Remember, start at the beginning of the hop and work your way through each blog. Please leave blog love (comments) along the way and become a follower of the blogs so that you can see the beautiful creations year round and not just when we have a hop! There are Sistas who are offering blog candy and you never know where you'll find some so be sure to visit each participating blog. Thank you for joining us for our 2011 SST! Valentine's Day Blog Hop! We hope you enjoy the creativity...

For my project, I created my first ever easel card! I pulled out my bling & stencils for this one & whipped up some whimsical swirls to compliment the gold swirled paper ribbon. The rose patterned paper is from Colorbok (sold at Walmart). The metallic cardstock is from the Core'dinations Pearls stacks from Joann & the black cardstock is from The Paper Company. I went through my stash & found the mirrored "Love" sticker. The finished card measures 4.25' by 5.5".

Be sure to leave some love for a chance to win blog candy! I'm working on 125 followers & I need your help (sending friends equals more entries in the candy drawing)... How do you get this candy? Simply leave a comment on this post or yesterday's Craftin' Sistahs Blog Hop post AND become a follower! The candy drawing will be on Sunday, February 13th!

(if a friend sent you, be sure to let me know that too!)

I hope you enjoyed my project(s)! Here is the list of participating blogs. I've made them clickable to make it easier for you to follow along the hop route. Don't forget to stop by and visit everyone. Leave some blog love and enjoy!
