HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!
I hope 2010 was a good year for you and I hope 2011 will be even better. Today I am hosting the New Year's Day Blog Hop. If you are here for the hop then you are in the right place. This is the starting point for the hop and if you get lost along the way, you can come back here and I will help you find your way. I have a complete list of all of the participating blogs.
There are 18 wonderful ladies participating in today's hop. They have worked hard to showcase some amazing projects so please be sure to visit everyone. They would love to see your comments. Your next stop after leaving here is Clare of Cricut Crafty Clare.
My project today is a set of picture frames. I used the Happy Hauntings Cartridge as well as the Martha Stewart's All Occasions Cake Art Cartridge. This project came together very fast.
First I cut the pieces of the frame from the Happy Hauntings cartridge. Everything was cut at 7.5 inches. To make the frame sturdier, I cut the pieces out of chipboard first and then I cut out and covered the chipboard with paper. The phrase and the numbers were cut from Martha Stewart's cartridge. I stamped the top of the frame with the Perfect Pearls medium and then dusted it with gold Perfect Pearls Powder. To set the powder, you have to lightly mist it with water.

Now the fun stuff. The blog candy that I will be giving away will be one of the newer Cricut cartridges, Paper Lace. I have it and it has some amazing cuts on it. I'm sure will get a lot of use out of this cartridge. It also has a really cute font. In order to win this cartridge, please leave me a comment of what you hope to accomplish in the new year. You will also need to leave a way for me to contact you. I will be using random.org to choose a winner on Monday afternoon. I would love it if you would become a follower, but that is not necessary.
Now on to Clare's blog.
