Lots of Love Blog Hop


**If you are looking for the Two Chics and a Birthday Hop click on the blinkie**

If you are looking for the LOTS OF LOVE BLOG HOP, you are in the right place!!

Welcome to LoveBug Creations' first ever Blog Hop
as we celebrate Valentine's Day. 

If you arrived here from Zeni's blog, you are in the right place.  If you happened here by chance, you may want to head back to the beginning to LoveBug Creations so you don't miss a thing!

For today's blog hop I designed and created a piece of hanging wall art for my craft room that I can hang during February for Valentine's Day or just leave up all year if I want!

I started by drawing what I thought I might want my finished project to look like.  I came up with a hanging "LOVE" sign.  


The red hearts are cut at 3.5" from the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge.  They are double-sided and on the inside there is a 3.5" heart cut from foam so that the heart will hold its shape.  The foam is attached to the paper heart with the ATG.


The letters for the word LOVE are cut at 2.5" from the Robotz Cricut cartridge. (I love the fonts on this cartridge!).  The letters are attached to the red hearts with the ATG.


After the hearts were all assembled, silver wire that was left over from making a pair of earrings was thread through the hearts.  At the bottom end you can see a decorative swirl, while at the top you can see a circle to hang the project on the shelf peg. 


To finish off the project, a bow made of silver ribbon is tied to the top of the project.


And here is what it looks like in my craft room:


I really like how it turned out!  I used things that I had left over from other projects.  The wire was used to make earrings, the foam was used to make kids' projects and of course I always have a lot of paper scraps.  And now I have a "LOVE" sign:)
*BLOG CANDY ALERT*




 I am offering two ink pads, one Happy Birthday Stamp, and an assortment of paper to the random winner who shares with me the name of someone special in his or her life.  I am also asking you to consider becoming a follower of mine.  That would really mean a lot to me:)

P.S. The comment button for this post is at the top of the post! Sorry for any confusion :)

It is time to hop on over to Kim's blog to see what she has designed for you!!
  
I am sure you don't want to get lost on this hop so can always head back here to check out the entire list of participants.  Here they are in order.  Just click on the name to link to the blog:



Have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
