Bitten By the Love Bug Blog Hop



Welcome to INKING IT UP CRAZY and the Bitten By The LOVE BUG Blog Hop!
If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop,
you are right at the start:)
We would love to share a few projects and ideas with a valentine theme with you! Make sure to check out each member's blog. There will be some fun prizes along the way, AND there will be some AWESOME ideas!



Here is my project:


I got this fun purple mailbox at Micheals in their Valentine crafting section.
I decorated it with patterned paper, ribbon, hearts and some bling.
These mailboxes are so fun to personalize, your kids would LOVE to help.



This is a super quick and easy valentine gift that would be great for student valentine exchanges.
I used my gypsy and the doodlecharms cartridge. I welded two hearts together and made a cute butterfly shadow. I then punched 2 holes and inserted a pixie stix in the middle.
Both projects are very kid friendly and super fun:)
