January CC DT Blog Hop

WELCOME, WELCOME, WELCOME to all CC and WeScrap fans and friends!!!

Welcome to the January Crop Chocolate Design Team Blog Hop!!  This is your starting place, so if you are here, you can continue on and see everyone's great projects created specifically for you and this blog hop.

Crop Chocolate is such an amazing place!!!  It sells craft supplies one-deal-at-a-time at great reduced prices, and there is such a great family of crafters who frequent the site and chat.  Check it out!!!

I am one of nine design team members that create projects at least once a month.  It is an awesome, and very talented group.  I know you will enjoy continuing on through the hop!!!  But first, here is the project I made for this hop.  It is a Valentine's Day treat holder.  I have to admit that I started out with this project trying to make a 3-D heart using a TP roll and paper.  However, when I was done with the top part, it looked more like a hot-air balloon, so I added a "basket" using a baby food jar, and turned it into a treat holder.

I used EP's Yours Truly 12x12 paper pack, and some random self-adhesive paper ribbon I had.  To strengthen the pieces attached to the jar, I used some floral wire.


Please browse my other projects and posts, leave comments and click to follow me on my DT and scrapping journey.

From here, you will visit with corriew - Corrie at: http://www.corriescrafts.blogspot.com/.  And then she will send you on from there.

In conjunction with the CC Blog Hop, WeScrap is having a CROP (not a blog hop-sorry for any confusion) that is being hosted by Crop Chocolate.  You can reach that information at: http://www.wescrap.com/home/forumdisplay.php/27-Bring-in-The-New-Crop

And that's not all!!  Both WeScrap and CC are giving away blog candy!!!  Starting today (Thursday), hop through all the lovely blogs, leave a comment on the CC blog and you could win one of two scrapping kits (of the winner's choice) being donated by WeScrap.  The winners will be chosen on February 1.  Then follow the WeScrap hop, comment where they request, and you could win one of 4 $25 gift certificates from CC.  WOW!!!

Thanks for visiting and Happy Hopping! :)
