Welcome to Crafting Cricut Mom and 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 Erin at Spantastikreations , 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 Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Share the Love" project at FCCB!

How fun is that?

For my project, I made a quick Lots of Love book using my Your Story Photo.
 I used a large dot Cuttlebug folder to emboss the 4 x 6 cover.  I cut different shades pink pink cardstock at 4 x 6 to fill the inside.  The cut is from Birthday Bash at 3 1/2 inches.  I tied twine from The Twinery around the cover and added some self-stick gems. I'm not sure if I'm adding pictures to the inside to just use it as a notebook.

I do have blog candy for you!!  But I'm having internet issues and will post a photo later.  Here's a picture--sorry for the bad quality, I am having multiple technical issues! I have a Martha Stewart Cupcake Edge Punch, A Little Yellow Bicycle Cupcake sticker pack and a package of self-stick pink gems. To enter, please leave one comment and a way for me to contact you if you win!  I will draw a winner this weekend.

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

Next stop is Jamie's blog, Cute Cards & Crafts by Jamie. Go see what she has in store for you today... And 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!
Helen

  47. Hey, I love your project....and your technical issues were not really issues to those of us following the blog hop. Great job. Love the idea of using your project as a notebook. I love notebooks and notepads....probably because I am always making lists or jotting down crafting / sewing ideas. Thansk for sharing.
