ATC Creation Fun First Ever Valentine's Day Blog Hop!

Welcome, Friends, to ATC Creation Fun's first ever Valentine's Day Blog Hop.  We are excited to have you hop along with us today.  We are so happy to have our hop sponsored by Simply Betty Stamps.

She has such a wonderful array of digi, rubber, and clear stamps available on her site.  So, when you get a chance, please take the opportunity to browse her online shop.  I am sure you will find something you will love.  Now, on to the fun :

If you just hopped over from Abby's blog, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened to stumble in and you want to join us from the beginning, please go to ATC Creation Fun and follow along.  We have a bunch of very talented ladies joining us on the hop today, some from ATC Creation Fun, some from Craft Your Passions Challenges, and some ladies from Forever Night Challenges.  So, sit back and enjoy the ride!

For my first ATC (top of post), I had the chance to work with London.  I love that she has an armful of Valentine's Day candies!  How SWEET!  I colored her with Copics.  I adhered her to the ATC base and added a few embellishments.  I love how easy an ATC project can be! 

My second ATC uses the same, pretty polka-dot paper.  I was going for a CAS look which explains the "white space".  I inked the edges of the patterned paper, although it is hard to tell in the picture.  I used a computer-generated sentiment and adhered to the ATC with adhesive and accented with a red brad.  The white heart was diecut from felt.  I added a button and twine.  The lace and pearl trim came from my stash.  I thought it was the perfect finishing touch!

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed my ATC creations.  It really is nice to work on a simpler project from time to time.  In case you're wondering what I do with them, I usually give them to my teen daughter.  She loves to collect them.  LOL!  You could always use them on your cards, though!

Your next stop is Sara's blog to see what wonderful ATC she has in store for you.  Don't forget to leave a comment on every lady's site and at the end of the blog on the main ATC Creation Fun site for a chance to win a prize from our sponsor, Simply Betty Stamps!
