TSF Valentine's Blog Hop


Are you in the mood for some scrappy love? Are you craving design inspiration for your Valentine's Day projects? What better way to 'feel the love' than to spend some time with your friends at Two Scrapbook Friends and be inspired in the process! We invite you to share in the love starting February 10, 2012 beginning at 8 am with a fun Valentine Blog Hop!

You will begin the hop at the Two Scrapbook Friends Blog and travel from blog to blog leaving a comment on each one. If you comment on each blog, you will qualify to be in a draw for a special prize from Two Scrapbook Friends! Also, you will find a RED HIGHLIGHTED word on each blog which will make a phrase at the end of the Blog Hop! Once you have completed the hop to all our designers blogs, leave a comment on the Two Scrapbook Friends blog and email the phrase to us and we will enter your name for a second chance to win!

The hop will remain open from February 10th to February 13th at midnight (EST). Winners will be announced on February 14th in the Two Scrapbook Friends' Blog. So be sure to stop back and check to see if you are the winner of a fabulous prize from Two Scrapbook Friends.
For my creation I made a variation of something I have seen done before. I used lillybee papers and some loose scrabble tiles which we sell at TSF. By far the most labour intensive part was sewing all the hearts by hand. The grid paper made it really easy to line everything up!

All of the hearts are 3D so I took the glass out of the frame to show them off.



So remember, in order to be entered to win:
1. Leave a comment on all the blogs as you go and then come back to the Two Scrapbook Friends blog and leave a final comment there.
2. To have a second chance to win, keep track of the HIGHLIGHTED WORDS from each blog and email the phrase to 2friends@execulink.com. Put "Blog Contest" in your subject line.
3. Check back at the Two Scrapbook Friends blog on February 14th to see if you are the winner. (Winners will not be contacted personally.)

Here are the featured blogs in our Valentine's Blog Hop:

Have a great time blog hoping and thanks for visiting MINE.
