Good Morning Crafters and welcome to day 1 of the Cooking With The Cricut Holiday Blog Hop! If you've just come from visiting Jenna at My Favorite Things you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to participate in the hop then head on over to Cooking With The Cricut to start from the beginning!
With the holidays fast approaching we are sharing some wonderful ideas and inspiration for your viewing and crafting pleasure!
Each Design Team member will be featuring an original project made especially for this hop. Make sure to check out each DT member's blog, there will be prizes all along the way as well as a great grand prize offered back at Cooking With the Cricut!
For my first project I decided to stick with the oh so popular lighted glass block. I am constantly getting orders from these and with Christmas fast approaching I've been getting even more! The best part about these are that you can do ANYTHING! I'd done them as night lights for a child's room, a Mr.&Mrs. So & So as a wedding gift, even a pumpkin last month for Halloween. This particular block is a Christmas gift for a my cousin & her husband who have just moved into their first home.
I got a mini 5x5in glass block from Hobby Lobby and used etching cream to etch both sides, that way the string of lights isn't as visible. From there I used my Sure Cuts A Lot software to design the saying & heart shape. I cut it out using my Cricut and placed it with transfer tape to make sure it was lined up just right. It was very simple and makes for a very popular gift!
Now onto the fun part! I will be giving away a free cut file or digi stamp from Scrapbook Eden and if you haven't already you MUST check out her files! They are SO adorable!!! We have so much fun featuring them in all our DT projects! Now in order to win my cut file or digi stamp all you have to do is leave a comment on this post! If you'd like a second entry into the drawing then go on over to my Facebook page (the badge is shown above on the left side of my blog) and become a fan, then come back here and leave me a second comment letting me know that you've done that!
Now it's your turn! Let’s see your wonderful holiday projects. Be sure to include a Cricut or other die cut machine cut on your project and link it up at Cooking With the Cricut! There are some GREAT prizes going out to the winner so be sure to check that out!!!
Next stop...head on over and see Dalis at Stamper Girl to see what she has in store for you today! And don't forget to come back and do the hop again tomorrow for more great holiday projects!!!
