2nd Blogaversary Hop Day1 GIVEAWAYS & FREEBIES!

Good morning crafty friends,

We are so excited to share this time with you! Today we are kicking off our Blog’s 2nd Anniversary with a two day hop and a week long celebration!
Our hop is two days and each day we will have different designers sharing different projects with you!
We have some GREAT Blog Candy as well as some daily file and graphic give-aways! So be sure to join us EVERYDAY for the next 7 days!
The traditional gifts or elements of a second anniversary are Glass, Crystal or Cloth. So the DT was challenged with making a project that contained these elements or elements that represent them.
So here are the projects I came up with:

Sweet 1 Page Layout (Two Versions)

First Up:
Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge Version
Cricut adorable layout-500
I made this version using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. If you are interested in the full directions and cutting guide, click the link below.


Next Up:
Electronic Die Cutting File Version

Here are a couple of close up shots. I am trying to show that I used some Glossy Accents on the heart to give them a “glass” appearance. Of course the lace is “fabric” and I used some Clear Dew Drops in the centers of the flowers for some more glass-crystal looks.
