Stirrin' Up a Li'l Love BLOG HOP!!!!!


Welcome to your 2nd stop on the “Stirrin' Up a Li'l Love at Cookin' Up Creations” Blog Hop! If you are following the links from the beginning of the hop, you should have come from the Cooking Up Creations blog. If not, and you wish to participate in the blog hop, please start at the Cookin' Up Creations blog HERE.

Today, I am excited to share my altered file folder with you, made especially for this blog hop. I turned the folder into an accordian folded card, but it makes a super cute mini album too! If you want more details on how to make one, check out tomorrow's "Transformation Thursday" post in the BPS forum at CUC!





For my card, I used Pink Paislee papers from last year's Cupid Collection. On the front, I added a wooden heart (that I painted white and then used sparkle Modge Podge on), a ribbon flower, some lace, and one of the journaling cards from the collection. The center folds showcase pics of each of my boys. The last inside "page" has another journaling card and some paper flowers. The back is just another sheet of PP with another of the accent cards. I hope you'll check out my post tomorrow for more ways to use this mini album!!!

Your next stop on the blog hop will be Cassy's blog. Don't forget to leave a comment here, and on each stop on the blog hop. Then, make sure you finish up at the Cookin' Up Creations forum and post that you have completed the hop. Your name will be entered into a drawing for a fabulous prize! We're also hosting a weekend crop from Friday, February 4 through Sunday, February 6 on the forum – hope you will join in the fun!

In addition to the Blog Hop prize given by CUC, I'm offering a small RAK too!! You just have to do 2 things...1) Become a follower of my blog and 2) Post about the Blog hop on your blog, your Facebook, or any other place that allows it!! Please link back here in the comment box so I know you did it. Each place you post gets your name put in another time!! Easy-peasy!!!

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the hop!
