'HAPPY VALENTINES WEEK' BLOG HOP
{@ Tammy's Scrapin Corner}


We are celebrating Valentine's Week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner this week, with a Design Team Member 4-day Blog Hop from 12 February to 15 February 2013.

I have used the cute Love Note Digi from QKR and you can purchase it here.  I have coloured him with H2O's.  The fancy square shapes the image is mounted on, was created with the {Doing Life} Fancy Squares Template and you can purchase it here:




After numerous requests, here is a tutorial I tried to put together illustrating how I created the pin wheel embellishments:

I used 1¼" circle punch for the large circles and a 1" circle punch for the smaller scalloped circles







Hope you will find the tutorial useful and look forward to hearing from you, if you have tried your hand it at.

So onto the finer details of our Blog Hop:

There will be two random Winners along the way, who each stand a chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate from any digital images online shop of their choice.  The hop will start on 12 February 2013 through to 15 February 2013.  In order to stand a chance to win one of these lovely gift certificates, you need to:

  1. Have an active blog with craft projects.
  2. Be/become a FOLLOWER of my blog (see my Follower's list in my sidebar)
  3. Leave a COMMENT on each Design Team Member's blog along the hop. 
  4. Spread the word amongst your friends and most importantly, have fun. 

If you landed on my page first, then just carry on down the list, and from the top again till you are back at my blog OR start at the top at the Tammy's Scrapin Corner's blog, and work your way though to the final stop. The hop order is indicated on each blog, so you will not ‘get lost’!
