CWC and PCW Blogaversery Day 2



Welcome to Paper Crafting World (http://www.papercraftingworld.com) and Cooking With Cricut’s (http://www.cookingwithcricut.com) Blogaversary Blog Hop!  Our Design Teams are so excited to bring you a two-day hop that focuses on projects honoring a second anniversary…..cloth, crystal and or glass.

We think you will be blown away by some of the super creative inspiration and interpretation of our designers. So be sure to come back both days as each day will be a different set of designers and projects!

PLUS, this hop is the kick off of our week long celebration! Each day for a whole week we will be brining your fabulous projects made by our designers and each day we will be giving away free vintage graphics, digital printables and or electronic cutting files! So you will want to make CWC-PCW (http://www.cookingwithcricut.com) a daily stop for the next week!

You should have arrived here from visiting Michelle at http://www.michelles-crafty-creations.blogspot.com/.  If you’ve joined us in mid-Hop and would like to check out all the other fantastic projects head on over to CWC-PCW  (http://www.cookingwithcricut.com) and start at the beginning.

I made a shaker card with glass beads for the celebration!  I created the shaker box with Spellbinder dies.  I used the inside of the shaker box to display the sentiment. 
 I just thought this was the perfect sentiment for our celebration.  It is from JustRite Stampers.  The little bird is cut from the Cricut cartridge GIVE A HOOT.  The beautiful trim is from Hobby Lobby as well a the three little fabric covered brads.  The paper is from K&Company.  I tied a beautiful bow with crinkle ribbon to the card and added some flourishes from my stash.  

There are several prizes to be won so be sure to head over and join the fun at CWC-PCW  (http://www.cookingwithcricut.com).
There is a  “cloth, crystal or glass” challenge you can enter to win as well as other super blog candy just for being a follower and commenting, so don’t miss out.

  6. Charlotte, this is such a beautiful project! I really love the inking, and the shaker was a great idea! I totally love the "vintage" or "aged" look of the overall piece. I am in love with that style but have not completely mastered it yet.
