RED HOT BLOG HOP - Treatbag

Welcome back to the second and final day of the Red Hot Blog Hop! Once again if you arrived here from Nana Donna's Card Dreams then you are heading in the right direction! If not then you will need to go to She's A Sassy Lady blog and start the hop.

My project for today is a red hot Valentine's Day treat bag. I used Design Studio to make my base for the treat bag topper and used George to do so. For the heart I used George for the heart and Graphically Speaking for the flames and then welded the flames on the yellow and red layers. The "hot" is on the From My Kitchen cartridge.

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression
Cricut Design Studio
Cricut George cartridge
Cricut From My Kitchen cartridge
Cricut Graphically Speaking cartridge
ProMarkers
1/4" Satin Ribbon
Red, Turquoise, Yellow, Orange Cardstock
Pinecone Press Sweet Words
Cat Eye Chalk Ink Dark Brown
Small sized treat bag


I used ProMarkers to outline on the Cricut cuts just slightly. And then did a few doodle dots on the "hot" with a Stampin Up Marker. I punched a hole in the top center and tied ribbon.

The bags are just small ones and I folded them over and stapled shut. I used double sided tape to attach the topper to the bag.


You can have another chance to win the ProMarkers as I will be drawing from the comments from yesterday and today. To enter the giveaway on my blog just leave a comment on this post and I will use Random.org to choose a winner. Comments will be closed on Monday morning at 8am.

A winner will be drawn randomly from one of the blogs in the hop so make sure you comment on each one both days of the hop! To continue on the hop just click the button below and don't forget to leave your comments along the way to be eligible to win the prizes.

  58. Hi Okie!!! I have been following you for a while and I have never commented...and I was wondering...how do you "know" what cart to find an image. I LOVED your matchbook project and today's as well and I am amazed by your creativity and I am always "floored" that you Knew that the flames were in Graphically Speaking etc. As my cart. library grows (largely b/c of you) I find it more and more difficult to remember what images are in what cart.
    Thanks for any help you can offer,
    Blessings,
