Craftin' Sistahs First Blog Hop

Welcome to the Craftin' Sistahs first ever blog hop! We are a group of Facebook friends who share the same passion for papercraftin'. The hop starts with the Mix On The Memories blog and ends with A Scrap Above. Along the way you'll stop by 8 other great blogs for a total of 10! You will find creations of all kinds along the hop. Be sure to start at the first blog and follow your way all the way through...several of the divas are offering blog candy! You never know where you might find some so be careful not to miss any of the blogs. While you're there, leave some blog love! Creative people love feedback on their work! We hope you enjoy this first Craftin' Sistahs blog hop!

Hello, my name is Monique and I am so excited, because this is my first Blog Hop.
I love Valentine’s Day it is the day that I was married to my wonderful husband for seven years ago. I have always loved hearts and draw them all the time, even dotting my “I's” with them. So you know that I was double excited when the girls and I decided to do a Valentine’s Theme Blog Hop.

I have been falling in love with making Tri-Fold Shutter Cards, so I decided that that would be my project for the Blog Hop.

Card Stock
AC Cardstock - Red
Recolletions - Chocolate
Staples - Ivory

Patter Paper
ColorBok - Red Roses

A.C. Moore - Red & Sheer

The heart embelishment was cut with my Cricut Expression from the "Wedding" Cartridge.
I cut the figures at 3.5" layered and tied with ribbons.
