Valentine's Decor and Gifts Blog Hop 2/9 - 2/12

Hi and welcome to the Valentine's Décor and Gifts Blog Hop.

This post is doing double duty!

I am also a Guest Designer over at Susan's Blog today.

Thanks Susan for having me again as a GD.

This is my very first time hosting a blog hop.
If you happened here by chance you're in luck!

I am the first of 20 stops full of great ideas, so grab a beverage and let your fingers do the


The sponsor for this hop is Designs on Cloud 9 and she has offered us a $20 Gift voucher for the GRAND prize. Head over to her Facebook page and show her some Love.
One lucky person who comments on this hop will be the winner of this generous prize.

(one person from each stop will be chosen at random and I will then hold a random draw from those 20 people and ONE lucky person will win the GRAND prize).

I thought it would be fun to showcase homemade decorations and gifts for Valentine's Day.
My projects feature files from Designs on Cloud 9, whom is the sponsor of this hop. She has some FABULOUS cutting files and digi stamps.
Please check out and "like" her Facebook page . There is always great inspiration, contests, giveaways, special sales and new releases.

So enough jibber jabber and onto my projects....

This is my Gift portion of the hop.
My daughter wants to give this to her teacher, she is in 1st grade.
I may add a flower to the pencils too, just not sure yet.
(there are a few Hershey Kisses' in the bottom also.)
This file was a freebie a few weeks back at Designs on Cloud 9 "Heart Box 1".
Now for my Decor part....
I made a vertical banner using the "I love you" and the scalloped hearts from "Heart Box 1" file from Designs on Cloud 9
I will be giving away the "I Love You" file I used on this project as my personal blog candy to ONE lucky person that leaves a comment on my post. Be sure to leave me a way to contact you (ONE COMMENT PER HOPPER)
Here are a few close ups of the adorable little bears.

The next stop on the hop is the talented Ashley's Blog.
Thanks for visiting!
Hugs, Staci
