Welcome to the Cooking With Cricut/Paper Crafting World Crops of Luv blog hop! You should have arrived from Olivia’s blog, ORM Crafty Nights. If not, please go back to the beginning at Cooking with Cricut.
This month we designers have made scrapbook pages to donate to Crops of Luv. This organization works with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and creates scrapbooks for families who have children facing life-threatening illnesses.
The bears are about 6 inches high. I used the muzzle and dress from the Kisses 2 U bear to make the girl elf. The font is, fittingly, Santa’s Sleigh. For the bear “toppers,” I cut everything except the legs and elf shoes.
I used Microsoft Word to make the journaling blocks. For the boy’s page, I just made lines using the underline key and printed them on colored paper. Then for the girl’s page, I inserted a shape from the Callout group. I unchecked the box that keeps proportions and changed it to the size I wanted, chose no fill and no shadow for the shape, brought it in front of the lines I made for the boy’s page, printed it on colored paper and cut it out by hand.
We would love for you to participate. You can make a two-page layout following the parameters outlined below and mail it directly to Crops of Luv c/o Roberta Baker, 11424 S. Pawnee Circle, Phoenix, AZ 85044. Since this blog hop is also a challenge, be sure to link your project to CWC/PCW.
There are very specific requirements for the layouts. You wouldn’t want all your hard work to be in vain if you create something they can’t use.
The submissions have to be double-page 12 x 12 layouts using these themes: Princesses, Pirates, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, or general Disney theme, Summer Fun (e.g. swimming), or Christmas (they have Christmas every Thursday at “Give Kids the World.”) The layouts must include a journaling block or tag and mats for three 4 x 6 pictures on each page. NOTE: Crops of Luv does not want the photo mats permanently adhered to the page. That way they can flip them whichever way they need to.
If you would like more information about this organization, or would like to make a monetary or supply donation, please visit their web site, www.cropsofluv.com.
If you get lost along the way, please be sure to head back to CWC to get back on track. Be sure to head over to CWC and leave a comment for a chance to win some blog candy and to link your own Crops of Luv creation! Thanks so much for being a part of our hop!
