Day 1 of CWC 1st Blog Hop of 2012-Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue!

Welcome to Day one of PaperCraftingWorld.com and CookingWithCricut.com’s first Blog Hop of 2012!  Our theme is:  “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue!” 

If you have arrived here from Celeste's blog Touched by a Butterfly you’re in the right place!  If you’re joining us mid-hop, head on over to see Melin at CookingWithCricut.com and start at the beginning so you don’t miss any of the wonderful projects the Designers have created!

Our Designers had to use something old from their craft stash, something new (a recent purchase or new technique), something borrowed (an element from a Cricut cut or from a PaperCraftingWorld.com cutting file or digi stamp) and of course, something blue.

Here is what I came up with . . .


                                      

 I made these little favor bags for my former supervisors retirement party.  Her assistant loved my Halloween goodies so he asked me to make something.  For my old element I used my OLD Creative Memories Circle punch to punch out the circle sentiment after I printed them out on a sheet of paper on the computer.  For something new I used my new scallop circle punch (I love this thing already), for something "borrowed" I used some baggies that were actually meant for jewlery, I was able to stuff some nuggets in there and for something blue I used blue paper as my scallop circle to put my punched out circles on.  I used Cricut Art Philosophy for the bag toppers and I printed the labels for the nuggets right onto return address labels and put those on the nuggets!  Everyone loved them, including my now former supervisor :)  

Now head on over to  Charlotte at http://www.alittlebitofdetail.blogspot.com and see what she’s created! 

Make sure you check in tomorrow at CookingWithCricut.com and see what the Day Two Designers have cooked up!  Thanks for stopping by and hopping with us!  Have a crafty day!
