Flowers, Flowers, Everywhere Flowers blog hop Day #2

  Welcome to Day #2!!


Flowers, flowers, everywhere flowers...Don't you just love flowers? They bring color and beauty along with fragrance to our world and that is why this hop is celebrating them in all their glory. Hop along to see how the crafty people in our line up have used flowers in and on their projects.

Our Hostess for this hop is Lissa Marie and her site is the place to start if you've happened upon this hop by accident and want to see more pretty flowers. Otherwise continue on and enjoy all the color and beauty of flowers everywhere.

For Day 2's project I went with a wreath.  I've wanted to try one of these from the first time I saw one on a blog somewhere.  Now, I'm not ambitious enough to do an entire wreath in flowers, (man it takes 100's of flowers so just sayin') but I did manage to cut quite a few and cover a corner.



 All the flowers were cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, which is an exclusive to CTMH (..um I'm a consultant in need of sales if you are interested in this cartridge or ANY CTMH products <--hint hint).  There are so many other fantastic cuts on this cartridge that I need to explore, but I've been stuck on these 3D flowers for awhile now.

Thank you for stopping by today. This is a two day hop with two projects to share for each person participating so if you didn't hop with us yesterday, please so back so you can be entered in to win some sweet smelling (well OK it doesn't actually smell) blog candy and to see more flowers projects. Now continue on to Jearise to see what she has waiting for you!

Now if you want a chance at some blog candy, please follow me and leave a comment with a way to contact you.  If you didn't visit yesterday, make sure you do, because I will be combining ALL comments and you can double your luck!



Here is the complete hop line up in case you get lost....

Grrrrr.... NOW you tell me that these flower wreaths take HUNDREDS! I just started one yesterday to give to my Mom on Mother's Day (and I need to ship it so it arrives on time), and I'm oh, only about 4 corners into completion. I wish I started out with just one "corner" like you!! Your wreath is LOVELY and I love the butterflies too. I too use the Art Philosphy cartridge, as well as some rolled flowers on my Cameo. That way, I can keep the machines cutting while I'm rolling.

It's always a pleasure hopping with you!

Fondly,

Hi, I have to say I've taken some time tooling around your blog. I just absolutely love today's project. That wreath and those flowers would look perfect on the front door of my new house. ; ) I also went and saw yesterday's project and like that too. I need to figure out how to use the pearls. I should find a video on them. I didn't make rounds yesterday for comments but I did see your project already. Now lastly, I just got looking and saw your Shrinky Dink dragon flies and I like that idea on a light switch or using and type of shrinky Dink shape on a light switch. I need to try this since I have some of that stuff stuck away on the porch. Thanks for sharing so much creativity.
