A Valentine Blog Hop!

Have you been bitten by the love bug yet? If not, it won’t be long! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and our Content Contributors have put together yet another smashing blog hop to inspire creations just in time for the day that celebrates love like no other.

Before we send you hopping along your way, we thought we’d share a quick, fun way to wrap some sweet little Valentines (shown above). Simply wrap them with your favorite scrapbook paper (we chose the Watercolor Love Paper Pack), then add some fun bling using trimmed decor from the sheet of decorative panels in the paper pack, or from the Watercolor Love Embellishments (complete with sparkly heart-shaped bling -yum!).

As you hop along the blogs today, soak up the sweet ideas. Then, pop on back here and leave us a comment on what Valentine’s projects you’ve got up your sleeve after the inspiration you find along the way. You could win this Watercolor Love Prize Pack, including the 12×12 Fuchsia Watercolor Album Cover, Watercolor Paper Pack and Watercolor Love Embellishments:

WatercolorLoveGroupShotHere’s the order for the hop – you’ll start with Sarah and go on from there. Happy Hopping! <3

  14. I would use this collection for my greeting cards.
    The album would be used to store samples of all of my cards. I usually keep one for future
    reference. the album would be a good reminder to be sure to check out CM more often.
    thanks for having the hop. Got some great ideas for future projects.

  15. Love this whole collection and how these lovely crafters used it. The heart treat bags and the heart chain are so cute! I really like all the LO’s too and these would look great in that gorgeous album……….

  16. My favorite was the B/W photo against the Love Watercolor paper on Fran’s paper. Sometimes I think we forget to try B/W and Sepia in our photo printing.

  17. Great creations on all the
    blogs! I loved the heart
    treat holders. I would
    use this package to
    make cards.
