Welcome to Day 2 of Cooking With Cricut/Paper Crafting World’s Crops of Luv Blog hop! You should have arrived from Xochitl’s blog, Cricut Cutter Scrapping Heaven. If not, please go back to the beginning so you don’t miss a thing!
As I said yesterday, the two design teams are making double-page layouts to donate to Crops of Luv, an organization that works with the Make a Wish Foundation to make scrapbook pages for critically-ill children.
For these princesses, I used Celeste butterfly from Paper Crafting World. The guitar on the first little princess is a gift from a crafting friend of mine, Jayne. She made it using the Indie Art cartridge. (Hi, Jayne!)
Three 4 x 6 landscape-oriented photos can be placed one on top of the other in the white areas of each page, or the journaling mats can be re-arranged and some photos can go on the patterned paper. The journaling and title mats were cut from Lacy Labels, and the titles themselves from Rock Princess.
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.
I have some “blog candy” to offer you this weekend — this 8 x 8 Mickey & Friends album from EK Success! For a chance to win, leave a comment on this post and/or yesterday’s post. If you’re a follower or become a follower, leave another comment telling me so for another chance to win. Be sure to include a way for me to get in touch with you. Random.org will pick the winner on Tuesday morning.
The next stop on this blog hop is Natt’s blog, TinyNatt. Thanks so much for joining us on our hop, and we hope you’re able to make a project to donate to Crops of Luv!
