Short and Sweet Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Short and Sweet Blog Hop!  I am honored to have been invited to participate in Elizabeth from 217 Creations' Blog Hop!  I have known Elizabeth for a number of years before even the start of my blog.  We have both had our Gypsy's since launch in fact.  There are so many wonderful resources available now to learn your way around the features but, we were learning and teaching each other.  It is wonderful when you meet some wonderful ladies through a shared passion of crafting.  Rather than reminescing on all the wonderful ladies in this hop which there is an abundance of talent as you have seen in this hop if you started at  http://www.217creations.blogspot.com/ - 217 Creations by Elizabeth and arrived here from http://scrappinmystressaway.blogspot.com/ - Scrappin' My Stress Away by Lori.  If you arrived here first, please do go to Elizabeth's blog 217 Creations. 

You will find some wonderful projects and blog candy along the way. 

I made this treat cup using the Cupcake Wrappers Cricut Lite cartridge. I chose the "Bird" and cut out the layer without the shadow feature. It was set to fit as large as possible on the 12x12 mat.  For illustration purposes, I filled it with color in order for you too see it better.

I used the Cricut Imagine and flood filled it with the pink zebra stripe patterned paper on the Blast Off Cricut Imagine cartridge.  You do this by clicking on the image on the screen and the following box will pop up:

Tap on the pencil on the upper left of the box that popped up.  It will then take you to the following screen.

You can then go through the options and pick the patterned paper of your chose to fill in the image.  Or you can click on the left where it looks like a rainbow and enter in the rgb codes or select from the color wheel.  For this project, I chose to do the pink zebra print. 

This is a picture of the mat in the Imagine as it is printing then cutting.

I also out the topper for the "Scallop" and flood filling it with coordinating patterned paper from the Blast Off Cricut Imagine cartridge.  I just followed the above example choosing another patterned paper. 
Here is the side view showing the bird.

I used the setiment stamp from SU Tag Time with a heart and the words "Be Mine" with some of course dark pink ink.  I layered the two scallop cuts with dimensionals centered under the fleur de lis.

Inside, I placed the yummy homemade pink sticky goodness of modified muddy buddies.  Notice the Door County Sour Cherries and the shimmer of the red sugar to give it that last touch of goodness!  These sure are addictive!   

Now, on to the blog candy!  Please become a follower of this blog and leave a comment on this thread. 

I will  be drawing one lucky blog follower to win a copy of the Provocraft Cricut cartridge Nursery Rhymes!

In case this is your first stop, please be sure to check out all the other wonderful projects and blog candy.  Here is the blog list:
