Seasonal Expression I Blog Hop

Welcome!  Life is sure exciting the entire month of December, isn't it?  So seriously, who is thinking about Valentine's Day?  I am!

Our brand new Seasonal Expression I supplement went live on December 1st and so it is time for a blog hop!  The very talented group of Stamp of the Month Bog Hop consultants is sponsoring this hop and we have over 30 consultants participating in this hop.

If you have been hopping with us, then you have arrived from Melissa's blog here.  Don't worry, if you get lost along the way, you can always find the list on Melinda's blog here.

My Valentine's Day layout inspiration came from Scrapbooking Generation's new Create e-magazine from February 2014 here.  I layed out my design in the Cricut Design Space program to give me an idea of colors and cuts.  Here is my sketch idea...

You can find the free downloads for this layout and the others here.

Next I started to work with the Heartstrings paper pack and accessories.

Love this paper pack!

Heartstrings Complements and Assortments

Then I accented the layout with stamped images from the C1604 Forever in My Heart stamp set.

The red outlines are the cut files from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  You can find my Cricut Design Space file here.

If you do not have an Explore, here are the cut sizes.

Art Philosophy - page 26
Large Heart - 2"
Small Heart -  1 1/2"

Art Philosophy - page 35
Label - 1 1/2"

Finally here is the layout that I have been working on!

Now it is off to Sheila's blog here for her Parisian tour...  

Thank you for joining us on this Seasonal Expressions I Blog Hop!
