My 1st Blogaversary blog hop!

Welcome to Samantha's Cricut Creations 1st anniversary blog hop! This is the first stop on the hop, so sit back and enjoy all the wonderful projects along the way!




The hop theme today is crafty anniversary.

For my project today, I have made a "Celebrate" banner! I hope you enjoy!

 Completed banner




I started by using Robots party and Hopscotch Imagine cartridges to print and cut my banner pieces. The largest banner pendents are cut at 3.5 inches and have the pattern from page 2 right, the smaller banner pendents are cut at 3 inches and have the pattern from page 6 right. These are attached to each other with pop-dots.

I then cut my letters from Cherry Limeade and Hopscotch pattern from page 4 left at 3 inches. These are attached to the banner pendants using smaller pop-dots. The first and last banner pendants have 2
asterisk's each that have been attached to each other with glue dots to add some color and pop! 




Last, I connected all the banner pendants using Aqua-Divine Time twine from Pink by Design.



Blog Candy!! 

I have 5 awesome prizes to give away today!!
  1. Two lucky people will each win a package of 6 K&Company silhouettes! 
  2. One lucky person will win a Hoot 'n' Holler Cricut Lite cartridge! 
  3. One lucky person will win a "Just 4 men" pink by design stamps set! 
  4. And last but not least....one lucky person will win a Freeze Frame!!  
So now you are probably wondering how you can enter to win one of these wonderful prizes??? 

Make sure to leave a separate comment for each entry! (Don't worry I don't make you do the word verification, so you will not be slowed down with each one!) 
  1. Be a follower (mandatory to win!) and leave me a comment! 
  2. Like my facebook page, stop over and say Hi to me there, and then come back here and leave me a message letting me know you have done so! 
  3. Follow me on Twitter (you can find my link in the left sidebar!) and leave me a comment letting me know have done this!
  4. Tweet about this blog hop - come back and post the link to your tweet.
