GIVEAWAY: Krafty Girls Blog Hop, Hockey Night in Canada

Hello my treasured friends!

Happy Valentine's Day and welcome to the first ever Krafty Girls blog hop and challenge! Today we're all showcasing projects that reflect our home sweet homes. If you've arrived here from Stephanie's blog, you're on the right track, and at the very last stop of the blog hop! I hope that you all have been blown away by the amount of talent these girls have! Here's the order of the blog hop in case you've lost your way or if you'd like to hop along! This is the first blog hop I've ever participated in, so I'm super excited!!

Krafty Girls --> Start Here
Tracey <-- You are here

I currently reside in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It was here that we hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics, and last summer our hockey team, the Vancouver Canucks made it to the semi-finals during the NHL Playoffs. I was going to do a traditional red and white layout but after updating my Gypsy (so that I could load the Go Canada Cartridge on there), it doesn't work!! Ironic, isn't it? Here's a layout that I created to capture the Vancouver spirit. 


Here's a close-up of the "Hockey night in Canada" title:


Trail of Treasures:
  • Card Base - cut in blue cardstock, 8 x 8", used white Gelly Roll pen for stitching
  • Journalling Frame - used a Walmart stamp set (sorry, I don't know what it was called!), and it fit perfectly in the Nestabilities Labels One die
  • Title - cut both the layer and shadow at 2.5" from the Go Canada Cricut cartridge, added stitching, sticker pucks, and Crystal Accents to make it glossy

Today after all is Valentine's Day, so here's the Valentine's postcard I created for my boyfriend. I'll be entering this into The Cuttlebug Spot - Sweetheart Challenge.


Here's an up-close look, and a peek at the back of the postcard:



Trail of Treasures:
  • Postcard Paper - from Martha Stewart 4.75 x 6.75" Key and Heart Mat Pad
  • Layer - cut at 2.75 x 6" and used the Martha Stewart Lace Heart Punch
  • Twine on flowers and the middle of the postcard - Trendy Twine's Valentine Twine Cherry Cupcake 
  • Sentiment - My Creative Time's This & That set; heat embossed with Martha Stewart's Ladybug Embossing Powder

Now, what is a blog hop without any treasure??? So, here's what you've been anxiously awaiting for! To one lucky winner you'll have the chance to win...a new Cricut Playtime Cartridge!


That's right! Here are the details for the giveaway:

Until next time's treasures,
Tracey xox
