Thankful Thursday Valentine Hop
Let's now get the formalities in place. If you have just stumbled upon my site because you're a follower; I am happy to have you here. I wouldn't want you to miss out on the fun that we have been having putting this together for you. I'd like you to start with Jenny, our wonderful hostess at CrazyAboutCricut. If you have been hopping along with us and have come from Bobbi's at Rock Girl Custom Designs then you are in the right place. Thank you for coming...now on to the fun!!! Are you excited?? Ok!!!
Here we go! I was working with son on some lollipop flowers. We were having fun with different things. I then had him help with an arrangement we have now on our hutch in the kitchen for Valentine's Day!
I had gone into Cricut Craft Room to make the designs to duplicate something we had seen online in a kit. I didn't want to pay the price they were asking for the kit so I looked again ~ saw that I could do this so I went on to do it. Son and I had fun putting them together. He didn't want the flowers to be just white so he asked me to ink them up so I did that. He isn't able to do this part.
Here is the end result hope you like.
Cardstock your choice of colors; in this case we used white and pink
Ink if you choose to ink edges
Favorite Lollipops to use
Floral (color of choice)
Ribbon (curling - color of choice)
Terra Cotta Pot
Ribbon around the pot
Acrylic Craft Paint (color of choice)
Cricut Essentials Cartridge (Flower in cardstock)
Home Accents Cricut Cartridge
Cut your flower center at 2" plus depending upon the size of your lollipop you plan to insert into the center of the flower. Then use Home Accents Cartridge to cut your hearts at 1.4" These will be placed at the back of your flower off center so the lollipop can still be inserted through the center hole. The hearts are your leaves for your flower.
Here is a surprise that I was surprised with. My Mom and Step Dad came over for a visit they brought this after seeing our arrangement. This is a painting that my Gram Gigi did before she passed away. They thought it looked alot like our arrangement. The elements in her painting are incorporated in our arrangement or very similar. Funny how God does that. I had been thinking of my Gram this week and the happy memories with her. This just tied it all together for me. Going to leave you with the picture of the lollipop screen shot then two pictures; one of our arrangement next to my Gram's picture and her picture alone. Thank you for staying. After the pictures I will give you direction to where you hop next.
Thank you for stopping!!! Here you go now hop onto our talented Amber at My 3 E Scrapbooking. Enjoy the rest of the hop. Hope we have given you some inspiration for Valentine's Day!
Grace & Peace,
