14 Days of LOVE Blog Hop Day 13

Thank you for joining My Cricut Craft Room and the 14 Days of Love Blog Hop.

I made 2 cards and a pencil topper to share on today's Blog Hop. Make sure that you visit each day to see where to go for tomorrow's projects.
I used the above sketch from MojoMonday ( to make the first card and kinda drew from the same sketch on the second one. Now for my cards!
The first card I made for my sister, Emily, for Valentine's Day. The card base is Studio G and I added DCWV Scrapbook Kit in A Stack Love & Wedding Textured Cardstock 8x8 pad, the heart is also from the same stack pad. I just traced a Heidi Swapp Heart Stamp and cut it out of this paper that has love written in different languages and Te Amo in Spanish shows up well in the middle. I thought it was French, but I realize now I got my languages messed up! Ha! Emily took French in high school and knows a little Spanish. The ribbon is Bobbin Ribbon that I bought from Big Lots years ago and have never used it until this card! The pink/white paper ribbon cut-out is also DCWV Love & Wedding 8x8 pad. The buttons are from my stash, The Love tag is K&Company Tim Coffey Cottage Garden Journal Tag Pad and the Sister sticker is K&Company Emma Rose Word Embossed Stickers. I used Elmer's Washable Disappearing Purple School Glue Stick to glue everything down- found at Food Lion for less than $3!

For the inside, you see some of the red DCWV paper hanging over to give it a little color. The hearts are Martha Stewart Crafts. The butterfly and flower are Recollections Kids Sticker Book as is the sticker on the back of the card.

The stamp- Hero Arts Handmade From the Heart- I bought from JoAnn's and used VersaFine Onyx Black Pigment Ink to stamp it on the back of the card as my signature. For the year, 2014, my copyright, I used a Sharpie Fine Point Marker.
Here's the second card I have to share:
This card is for my dad & Tammy (my stepmom). The horizontal striped and dots paper is American Crafts Dots & Stripes 6x6 pad- a $2.00 clearance find at work/TJ Maxx! The tag is from my stash and so is the blue heart floating in the top right corner. The heart is from a Ellen Krans Me & My Big Ideas 8x8 Ellen's All Occasion Paper Pad. The tag is from my stash and I added some purple twine that I won from Helen (  from a prize with Scrapping Everyday Miracles ( The ribbon is Wilton Romance Printed Self-Adhesive Ribbon. The heart is from may stash. The love ticket is a RAK from Nikki (!/nicholekoch1?fref=ts). The heart bling is from my stash. I used the same Elmer's Glue Stick as before to glue everything down except the ribbon.
You can see I let the corners hang over from the paper on the front to give the inside some color. The heart stickers are some stickers I bought from Walmart years ago- Hallmark Cards Inc. The I Heart U sticker is from Momenta ATD Everyday Super Sticker Pack Assorted- another TJ Maxx find. The note on the right is actually a pocket card I found on Facebook from Hazel & Ruby (

I made this for Tyler, my 6 year-old little brother. It's a Creatology Valentine's Day Pencil Topper. Everything on the monkey came in the 146 pc set except the Creatology Foam Glue I used to glue the monkey's head, the tinsel stem, and everyting else on the pencil. I bought this set from Michaels last year and just found it in my room this past week! Tyler has a sock monkey so he should like this pencil! My dad called Emily and I monkeys when we were little so Tyler is now a monkey, also! ;)

This is also a Hazel & Ruby pocket card that I glued to a piece of kraft paper from the American Crafts Dots & Stripes paper pad. The stickers are Recollections Kids Sticker Book. Thanks for stopping by and have a great Valentine's Day! Your next stop is
