DAY 2 Cooking with Cricut Blog Hop!!

Cooking with Cricut Sweetshop Blog Hop!

Welcome to Bugjuiced with Deb and the Sweetshop Blog Hop!  If you’ve never enjoyed a blog hop before, it’s where you ‘hop’ between blogs following a chain of links, with each blog in the chain posting something exciting for the event! There will even be some great blog candy (giveaways) to win along the way! More on that in a moment!

If you've come from visiting Dalis at, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to and start at the beginning. Go HERE Cooking With Cricut

With Valentine’s Day just a few days away we are sharing some wonderful ideas and inspiration for your viewing and crafting pleasure!  Each Design Team member will be featuring an original project each day (Saturday & Sunday) made especially for this hop. Make sure to check out each DT member's blog and collect the special letter there.   There will be prizes along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be some nice PRIZES with a few different ways to win at!

The First layout here I didn't use any carts. I just used BoBunny papers and cut out the little tickets. I used SCAL2 of course to do my lettering on my tags with my glitter pens from

You can see I used my "CRI-KITS" Glitter pens on this. Click picture and see close up! The glitter looks great from these pens!! I love photostrips and there is a great site that you can make your own as well as puzzles, mosaic's etc. Big Huge Labs its pretty fun and I love the way they look on your layouts. I did one on an album and it turned out so cute. 

The second item I am posting is a repost but since it is the "SWEET" theme I wanted to post it again. My hubby loves sweets and so I made this cute little recipe book to keep all his favorite things he likes me to bake for him!! I love doing word books, shape books so this was a great project! I did it all myself in SCAL2!!

2 GIVEAWAYS: **These are two separate gifts for two separate selected winners

#1- I get to giveaway the following two files to a lucky winner!! These are cut files. If you do not wish you have the cut files you will be able to select a digi file from Melin's site just let me know which one you prefer.

#2- Dane and Dru at "Cri-kits" are sponsoring my blog candy!!! The winner will receive a Pen set of their choice (Regular/Neon, Glitter, Metallic or Pastel just tell me which one you want ) this will include the pen holder!! This is a wonderful prize, these pens are AWESOME!!! They also sell a embossing pen and accessories that is wonderful. Look for a future project of mine using the colored tins and embossed design!

Lana said...

Very cute project. Question -- you said you used SCAL2 to do the lettering on the tags -- does it do the outline of the letter, like it cuts or does it just write the letter?

Kristin said...

Great layout! I have had my eye on the kri-cut pens for a while now!
