FCCB #46-Share the Love Crawl

***If you are looking for Love at First Sight Hop, click HERE***

Welcome to Fantabulous Cricut's "Share the Love" Crawl!!  For those of you that are new to FCCB, a Crawl is their version of a blog hop.  


With Valentine's Day only a week away, everyone at FCCB has decided to Share the Love!  All of our super talented Design Team members have made some amazing and fun Valentine-themed projects that include the word "LOVE" somewhere on it. 


If you just crawled over from the sweet and talented Cathy, then you're in the right place.  If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our FCCB Crawl, then click HERE to start at the beginning.


Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some amazing projects and fun ideas.  There will also be some yummy Candy along the way and a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Share the Love" project at FCCB!! WooHoo!! 


Ok, so for my project I made this super cute treat box.  If you would like to see a video tutorial on how to make it, you can visit the amazing Cricut Chick HERE.


I used Rock Princess to cut out the large heart.
I cut out the "Love" with my Robotz cart.
The decorative heart pins and the acetate heart are from
K&Company.

I cut out this sentiment with Designer's Calendar.
The flowers are a combo of Prima and Recollections.
I used Easy Stitches by Paper Pizzaz to make the stitching
around the square.

The letters "e" and "a" are chipboard letters I've had for some time now.
The "&" was cut with Sugar & Spice.
Cut the heart with Create A Critter.
The heart shaped brads are from Recollections.
Also used these cute lit' Alpha Beads from Darice.

This cute lit' bear I was super excited about. It was my first time using Paper Piecings!
I got him at My Scrap Chick.  Isn't he so cute??
I used HelloKittyGreetings to cut out the heart shaped balloons.
The sentiments are all free hand.

The treat box is made with a few 12x12 pieces of cardstock.
It is pretty durable and a good size.
I added about 5 different types of ribbon all different widths.

This will definitely make a super cute gift for someone.  I will probably
fill it up with some kind of candy. mmmmmm yummy.


Now it's your turn! Lets see what fantabulous Valentine-themed projects you come up with!! Don't forget to include the word "LOVE" somewhere on your project.

For your next stop, you will be crawling over to the fantastic Erin.  Head on over for some more amazing inspiration! When you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Share the Love Crawl post to be entered for the Grand Prize!!
