Blogaversary Hop Day 2 More Freebies

Good morning crafty friends,

Thank you for coming by and joining us for day 2 of our Blogaversary Blog Hop.

We are so excited to share this time with you! Today we are kicking off our Blog’s 2nd Anniversary with a two day hop and a week long celebration!

Our hop is two days and each day we will have different designers sharing different projects with you! We have some GREAT Blog Candy as well as some daily file and graphic give-aways! So be sure to join us EVERYDAY for the next 7 days! In case you missed yesterday’s hop, check out all the details; simply CLICK HERE.


The traditional gifts or elements of a second anniversary are Glass, Crystal or Cloth. So the DT was challenged with making a project that contained these elements or elements that represent them.

So here is what Day I came up with for Day 2


Key 2 My Heart Layout - Cricut Version
cricut key 2 my heart layout-600
This layout was created using the Cricut Victorian Romance Cartridge. 
Here is a close up of the Crackle Glaze that I used on the print out. As it dries, it will automatically crack. It is a really neat feature that gives everything a cracked glass appearance.


Here is a close up of the little bear. All the cuts from this layout were from the Victorian Romance cartridge including the little bear. I will have downloadable instructions done for this layout either later this evening or for tomorrow.


Key 2 My Heart Cutting File Version
This version is one I made with the files I created in my Pazzles Inspiration software. This software is much like the Funtime Software. I had a lot of questions regarding how I make my files so I figured I would start with the basics and work from there.

Here is a close up of the glossy accents I used on the printable for this version. I know the picture is lousy but I hope you get the idea.


Here is a close up of the little bear in the cutting file version I created.



Here is today’s Blog Hop Line Up!

Key 2 My Heart Layout Kits
Once again I decided that while I was creating the layouts, that I would go ahead and create extra kits. Today there are two. One that is more towards the Cricut Version and One that is like the Cutting File Version. I did however interchange a few pieces of the die cuts as I was cutting to simply save paper, etc. and the fabric petalloo flowers are a little different, but from the same package.





Sweet-Adorable Layout Kit
As I was making the projects for Saturday’s Blog post,  I decided to make a kit so one lucky winner could get all the “stuff” to make the kit. You will receive ALL the stuff I used to create the “Cutting File Version” in this kit.
