CWC Sweetshop Blog Hop

Welcome to Scrapbookaholic By Abby and the Sweetshop Blog Hop!  If you’ve never enjoyed a blog hop before, it’s where you ‘hop’ between blogs following a chain of links, with each blog in the chain posting something exciting for the event! There will even be some great blog candy (giveaways) to win along the way! More on that in a moment!

If you've come from visiting Cooking With Cricut, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, make sure you go back and start with CWC.

With Valentine’s Day just a few days away we are sharing some wonderful ideas and inspiration for your viewing and crafting pleasure!  Each Design Team member will be featuring an original project each day (Saturday & Sunday) made especially for this hop. Make sure to check out each DT member's blog and collect the special letter there. There will be prizes along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be some nice PRIZES with a few different ways to win at

For my project I used the You Complete Me Bears from Paper Crafting World and K & Company Paper.

Each blog has a secret letter that you have to collect. At the end you have to unscramble the phrase and follow directions on the last blog. Here is the “secret” letter you need to collect to be eligible for a prize package at  A

Now it's your turn! Let’s see your sweet Valentine projects. Be sure to include a Cricut or other die cut machine cut on your project and link it up at   The Design Team will pick their three favorites and one lucky sweetheart will be chosen randomly to win one of the six prize packages being offered in this hop.

Next stop.. ANITA   
Go see what she has in store for you today.

And don’t forget, when you're done, make sure to head back to and get entered to win one of SIX prize packages!  Here’s how: 

1. Link your sweet Valentine project and be one of the top three chosen by our Chefs.
2. Link your project and be the randomly drawn winner.
3. Collect all the letters and unscramble our “secret” phrase correctly and leave it in the special comment section on Remember my secret letter is A

Emma's Stamptastic Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Emma's Stamptastic Blog Hop!!! First of all, I want to wish Emma a quick recovery! She is a little sick and we are praying so that everything goes well and she gets better soon!!! If you came from Nikki then you are heading in the right direction! If not, make sure you start with Emma!!!

 This is our very first blog hop and I am really excited!! 

Emma's has out 8 super cute and fun stamp sets. Click HERE to go to her store and check all the details on them!

It is my turn to showcase one of the newer sets, Turn That Frown Upside Down.

Here is the card I made (I got inspired by one of Nikki's cards).

I used one of my sister's images (Kich N Bleus Designs).

I also have to share with you guys that it was my grandmother's b-day yesterday (she turned 82) and I made a card for her using the Polka Dot Surprise stamp set.

For this card I used the Peachy Keen Challenge sketch for this week. Paper is K & Company.

And today is MY MOMMA'S BDAY!!!
¡¡Feliz Cumpleños ama!!! ¡¡Te amo y no sabes cuanto te estraño!!!!
So, I made a card for her! A little different than usual because of the size and the combination of elegant and fun doll. She loves to glam things up. Not my favorite card...... but, I wanted to still show you guys! I also used the Polka Dot Surprise stamp set!

Bigui is my mama's nickname.

Used DCWV paper and Peachy Keen Faces...

I used a Wobble for two of the cards. Take a look at my video to see them in action!!

Want some candy??

Emma is giving away a stamp set on each of the blogs!!!

You Say It's Your Birthday Blog Hop! Ashley's Birthday!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASHLEY!!! Today is Erika's daughter, Ashley's birthday!! She is turning 11 and her momma decided to have a blog hop celebrating her birthday and their love for The Beatles. So we were asked to create a birthday something or to get inspired by a Beatle's song and create something! 

I am only the second blog on this hop, so if you are coming from Erika, perfect! If not, make sure you start with her!!! You don't want to miss all the info on all the cool giveaways she has!!!

I got inspired by a Beatles song "She Loves You" I just love the beat of this song and the lyrics are cool too!

So here is my card!

This was the first thing that came into my mind when I heard this song! Get a load of the size on the bling that my chica is getting!!! LOL I used craft and BoBunny paper.

The letters were cut from the Robotz cart and the couple from the Sweethearts cart.

The sentiment was placed using Emma's new stamps!! I love these!! I always just cut out a circle or square and place the sentiment there... but these My Journaling stamps helped make my card look cuter!!

Want some candy?? How about the newest collection of Kich N Bleus!!!

It hasn't been released yet!!! Make sure you leave a comment here and I will pick a winner by Wednesday!

Let's keep getting inspired!!! The next blog on the hop is:
