Hearts Challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables and a Winner

Hello Everyone,
Welcome to all my new crafty friends!
The new challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables starts today, and remember there is a free file every day! Hopefully you will be able to join us during the next two weeks with your own creation.

This Week's Challenge...
~ Hearts ~

Here is my Design Team project...
I saw a fox on my way home from the store the other day, so I have been thinking about using one since that day. My hubby likes to tease me and told me it was a dog, but I know the difference!

The stamped sentiment is by Scrappy Moms Stamps.

Blog Hop winner...
Thank you everyone for stopping by this past weekend. I hope you enjoyed all our projects. I was SUPER happy to read all your comments.

Marilyn ~ Who 'Dat Scrapper

Pink Multi Jewels from Eyelet Outlet and Brads

Click here for the Valentine Hop or just scroll down.

Hello Everyone!
Today is my first day to post at Eyelet Outlet and Brads...very exciting! Before I share my design team project,  I want to let you know that there is a Daily Deal where you can get a product each day at a discounted price. YES! Every day a new deal. Be sure to check it out!

Here is my Design Team project...
I decided to make Valentine tags for my student's gift bags.  Since I have 20 students, I made 20 tags.

I used Multi Jewels which come in a variety of colors. I used the smallest pink jewels for the corner of my tags.

The tag base is by Miss Kate Cuttables, but the top layer is another file. The heart is from the mailbox I posted yesterday (SVG Cuts) and the stamped sentiment is by Whimsical Designs. I cut all the pieces with my Cameo.

I used pink ribbon and a black and white twine to attach the tag to the bag.

Here is the gift bag from yesterday's Valentine blog hop. I think it looks awesome together. If you missed the hop scroll down and check out the projects and blog candy. You still have time!
 Other Materials:
red, black, and white card stock
Versafine Onyx Black ink

Eyelet Outlet and Brads has such a wide variety of products you need to check them out today!

Valentine Blog Hop

Welcome to the Valentine Blog Hop!
This hop is about sharing the love we have for our family, friends, co-workers, and crafty bloggers. Enjoy the creativity, get inspired, spread some crafty love, and then pass it on.

There are ten stops and you won't want to miss any of them! I am the first stop, so I am glad you have joined us. There is also a complete line-up at the end of this post just in case you need it. 

What would a hop be without Blog Candy?!?! Since we LOVE our crafty friends, each blog has a bit of candy that needs to be won. Thank goodness for candy!

And Here's How:
Be sure to be a FOLLOWER and COMMENT on each blog.
If you are a follower, your comment could be randomly drawn to win some fantastic prizes. Read each blog post carefully to see what is being offered at each stop along the way. 

Here is my project:

I decorated 20 black gift per student. I bought some stickers, a notepad, and a pencil for each student's bag. There are a few students that volunteered to bring in candy, which will go in the bags too. I may make a tag for each bag, but not put individual student's name on it.

I used a scalloped heart (about 6") from SVG Cutting Files and a mailbox from SVG Cuts ~ 24 Valentines Kit. The envelope actually pulls out.  I cut all the pieces with my Cameo.

Each bag will be used for the student's Valentines that they get to pass out to each other. We are also having a class party on Tuesday with cookies, brownies, cupcakes, chips, fruit, and drinks. The students will be able to open their Valentine's from each other and then I am planning a game. 

This is the prize being offered on my page:
It's a surprise, but don't worry...I love to share crafty goodies. 

Remember to win, you need to be a follower of my blog and leave a comment!
You have until Sunday night, February 12th at 8:00 pm EST to hop along with us! All winners will be announced on Monday, February 13th on each individual blog. The winners will also be posted on Carson's Creations Facebook page after all the winner's posts go live on each blog.

Here's the complete hop line-up in case you need to start at the beginning. Enjoy!

Happy Early Valentine's Day,

Candy Grams for Valentine's Day

Hello Everyone!

Today is my day to post at Miss Kate Cuttables. Before I share my design team project,  I want to remind you there is a free file that you can download every day. YES! Every day a new and different one. Be sure to get yours today!

Today's Freebie...Click Here

Here is my Design Team project...
I have been working on Valentine Candy Grams for school. Students and staff may "buy" one flower for 10 Box Tops (there is not limit on how many you can "buy"). My students will be delivering them to the recipients on Valentine 's Day. 

I used traditional Valentine colors...pinks and purple for the first 50. I used a long reach hole puncher to cut a whole in the center for the lollipop stick. I plan on making red ones for the next 50.
I used the following MKC files...Valentine flower and Cute flower.
The heart shaped petals were cut from Valentine Flower and the leaves were cut from Cute Flower.

The sentiment on the green leaf is from a Recollections stamp set.

Miss Kate Cuttables has LOTS of files to choose from, so check them out today.

I Love You Shaped Card

Thanks for stopping by at Carson's Creations! Today I am sharing If You Give a Crafter a Cookie's new challenge. These are quite creative have a picture of a cookie (yes, a cookie) and you use it as inspiration to create your project....a card, a layout, a tag, a gift bag...anything!

This Week's Challenge...

Here is my Design Team project...
I used a I Heart You file provided by The Cutting Cafe and coordinated the colors with the cookie photo.

I added a felt heart with black and white craft thread and then scattered some red gems on the polka dot heart.

The stamped sentiment on the inside is by Jaded Blossom ~ Valentine Treats stamp set.

Hope you will join us at If You Give a Crafter a Cookie this week for our "Photo Inspirationchallenge. The other design team members all interpreted the picture and sponsor's files differently, so go check it out!

Paper Play Sketches #34

Welcome back to Carson's Creations and thanks for stopping by.  Today I am sharing the new challenge at Paper Play Sketches. Great way to combine a few challenges since you can choose any colors, theme, sentiment, etc.

This Week's Challenge...

Here is my Design Team project...

I cut this cherry heart from SVG Cuts on my Cameo. It is part of 24 Valentines Kit...that could be one for each student with no duplicates. Be sure to check out all of the choices.

The stamped sentiment is by Whimsical Designs.

The heart and the cherries were popped up on foam squares to add some dimension.
