Lots of Love Blog Hop!!! Come and Join the FUN!!

Hi everyone and welcome to the Lots of Love Blog Hop! This hop will be showcasing 14 different designers and their love inspired projects. If you are coming from Norma at PinkBlingCrafter your right on track.  If you are just visiting and would like to join the fun hop on over to Courtney at Krafty Keekerz. We hope you have a great time hopping along and feel some love inspiration this Valentine's weekend!

For those of you that don't know, I am expecting a little girl any day now. For my project I made a Valentine's Day Scrapbook page for her. Let's hope that she will be here by then. So onto my project.......

This layout is made with Stampin' Up paper. The backdrop is blushing bride pattern designer paper. I also used blushing bride, perfect plum, bravo burgundy, sahara sand, early espresso, and pear pizzaz cardstock on this layout. "The greatest gift of" was cut on early espresso cardstock using a Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die called Naturally Serif, which I rolled through my Big Shot. I cut "LOVE", "Valentines 2011", and "Pasiley Grace" using my gypsy with the Alphalicious Cricut cartridge. "LOVE" was cut at 1 1/2 and the other two were cut at 1 1/4. The top picture box is cut at 4 1/2 by 6 1/2. The sahara sand box was cut at 5 by 5 1/2. I then punched the edges of this box with EK Success Scalloped Scallop border punch. Then I cut the perfect plum stamped piece at 3 3/4 by 4 1/2. To make the heart stamps on there I used a Stampin Up Letter Plate called Heart Pressed. I took an ink pad and inked the plate then I sat my paper down on it and with the Multipurpose Platform, and Standard Cutting Pad, I rolled it all through my Big Shot and it embossed and stamped the cardstock. The hearts were cut using the Twinkle Toes Cricut Cartridge at 3 1/2. I then embossed the "Paisley Grace" with Sizzix Texture Plates Kit #4. Its a heart plate. 
The corners of the picture boxes are punched with an EK Success corner punch. I added a 2 inch stirp of per pizzaz designer cardstock at the bottom. I know that seems like a lot, but this was a really easy layout to make, and I really like how it turned out. Let me know if you have any questions. 

Now onto the fun part my BLOG CANDY.. Please become a follower and leave a comment and you will be in to win my blog candy. Since this is a Valentine's Blog Hop I am going to give away valentine products.
