Something......Blog HOP

Good morning crafty friends!

Happy Saturday! Welcome to our first blog hop of 2012! We are super excited because this hop is over TWO DAYS....Today and Tomorrow AND Features TWO DIFFERENT SETS of DESIGNERS! So our theme was chosen by Yolie, one of our designers. She went with....

This means each designer was tasked with using: Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue. This was a FUN one to do. So here is what I am sharing today! It is this little Hot Cocoa-Coffee Mug I came up with....

My Something Old: The ribbon and flowers....The little flowers are from Prima and I don’t know if you all remember when the glass bottles of these little cuties were all the RAGE! I mean you wanted them in every style...LOL! Gosh, I am talking about a good 5+ years now.
My Something new: The mug cutting file I designed and the beautiful paper from Quick Quotes. 
My Something borrowed: See the bow, My sweet friend came over one day and showed me this little contraption called the “bow-easy” she let me “borrow” it so that I could figure out how to work it. It is a cool little thing that allows you to make bows really quick and easy. I have to give it back to her now, so it is quite literally....something borrowed :)
My Something Blue: Well I think this one is pretty easy to tell!

Here is one more project I wanted to share.

For this one. The something old is the background paper. The something new was the snowman pattern, the something “borrowed” was the idea to glitter the whole snowman and the touches of “something blue” are pretty easy to see.

Okay how about a little blog candy to warm your heart on this chilly Saturday!

  5. Beautiful projects as always Melin! Simply love what you've done with that layout (esp the glittery snowman, and those intricate photo corners!) I just purchased the bow-easy thanks to a suggestion from one of our talented DT members (Ugh! Can't remember who it was, and can't find the post now!), but I love it and was grateful for the suggestion! I did find through pinterest that you can use the same technique with a fork! but it will be a much smaller bow of course!! :)

    Enjoyed the 1st day hop. Thought I'd let you know that Larelyn's blog is incorrect on your list. There's a missing 'd' after the hyphen '-' but I figured it out since I'm already a follower of her blog. Looking forward to tomorrow's creations/projects.
