Valentine's Day Blog Hop | American Crafts


Yay! You made it to my blog on the American Crafts blog hop. Happy Valentine's Day! Wonderful day to celebrate love. I really think Valentine's Day is a fun day to celebrate just for the cute decorations and scrapbook products.

I love AC's XOXO line! Beautiful color palette. I also love the sequin trend that has taken over right now. They are so little, shiny, and cheap easy to add these little embellishments to anything. I also used my Cameo to create a custom heart block. Behind some of my die cut I added snippets of pattern paper. Then I glued the sequins on with general purpose glue and with my sewing machine stitched down in a line through the hearts and sequins. I clustered some embellishments around my two photos and added a journaling card behind my photos.


I just love these photos of my son. This photo was taken last Valentine's day. A lot of times I scrapbook last years holidays. There is no such thing as being caught up for me. 

details of the stitching and die cut.

Supplies: Sequins, Cameo, Sewing Machine, Twine, XOXO American Crafts line: paper, stamp, stickers, & die cuts.


Leave a comment on this post for a chance to win the American Crafts products above before February 16th @ 12 noon EST. Will post the winner Monday, February 18th.

Once again Happy Valentine's Day! 

Now hop over to Diana Waite's blog for your next stop.
