JAN BLOG HOP STARTS HERE!

Hi all!  It's bloggity blog hop time again!  Please come hop along with us :)  Love is in the air and Valentine's Day is just around the corner so the THEME for this BLOG HOP is LOVE!

As you hoppity hop, please collect the special words each DT has on their blogs.  At the end of the hop will be instructions on what to do all those "lovely" words ( umm secret phrase )   ;)  There are 2 prizes up for grabs:

1 winner of $25 GC to the Fred She Said STORE.

1 winner of $25 GC to CROP STOP.

***This blog hop contest closes Friday, Feb. 4 at midnight EST.

Here is the list of HOP STOPS ( in case you lose your way):

Fred  ( right here )   
Robin
Tracy MacD

Please don't forget to leave the DT some love ;)

EDIT FRI Morning:  Apparently Blogger didn't post the last stop on the hop last night.  All fixed now if you missed the last word :)


Here is Fred's project:



I used the Hearts & Roses Pre-Coloured Set in RED.  I used a new to me Cottage Florals embossing folder by Craft Concepts. ( which I got a Crop Stop ;) )  I colored the frames with distress inks and also spritzed the background with iridescent gold glimmer spray.  I outlined the frames with a gold DecoArt Calligraphy  paint pen.. oh man... this is working way better than my Krylon gold leafing pen.. I have just about gave up on that... not sure if it is just too old?  Anyhoo... if you are looking for a nice gold edge on your projects.. I am so recommending the DecoArt  paint pens.

Fred's special word is "May"

Just a note... later this evening I should have a new release of cutting files.... I didn't get time to complete them but... man... I am liking these, if I do say so myself.. so I'll be back! ;)

NOW, please go to ROBIN'S BLOG for you next stop on the HOP :)
