Cooking with Cricut Sweetshop Blog Hop!!

Cooking with Cricut Sweetshop Blog Hop!

Welcome to Bugjuiced with Deb 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 Dalis at, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to and start at the beginning. Go HERE Cooking With Cricut

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!

This layout I used the cricut cart "sweethearts" for the saying, monkey and leaf. The banana's I did in SCAL2. I just inked everything up and added alittle glitter to a few of the letters!

I absolutely love I love Lucy so this one I made in SCAL2. I found the heart with I love lucy in it on the internet and took it into SCAL. The TV I made myself using shapes in SCAL. I took the picture off the internet and printed and just scaled it down. 


2 GIVEAWAYS: **These are two separate gifts for two separate selected winners

#1- I get to giveaway the following two files to a lucky winner!! These are cut files. If you do not wish you have the cut files you will be able to select a digi file from Melin's site just let me know which one you prefer. Thanks Melin,!

#2- Dane and Dru at "Cri-kits" are sponsoring my blog candy!!! The winner will receive a Pen set of their choice (Regular/Neon, Glitter, Metallic or Pastel just tell me which one you want ) this will include the pen holder!! This is a wonderful prize, these pens are AWESOME!!! They also sell a embossing pen and accessories that is wonderful. Look for a future project of mine using the colored tins and embossed design!

Here is the “secret” letter you need to collect to be eligible for a prize package at "E"  

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.

That picture of Ethel and Lucy doing the chocolates was always one of my favorite shows..that candy kept moving and they kept stuffing. Even after seeing that show a zillion times I still laugh out loud watching it. She was a master of comedy! Enjoyed your blog.
