Cooking with Cricut Blog Hop - Crops of Luv

Welcome to the second day of Cooking with Cricut Crops of Luv Blog Hop. This month our designers chose to create layouts for the Crops of Luv Organization. If you came here from Lynden's Elegant Touch then you are in the right place, if you need to start from the beginning, then just head over to CWC.

Crops of Luv works hand-in-hand with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and creates scrapbooks for families who have children facing life-threatening illnesses. Our hop will focus on creating 12 x 12 Scrapbook double page LOs using these themes: Princesses, Pirates, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Summer Fun (e.g. swimming), Christmas or general Disney themes.

Crops of Luv has some specific guidelines for the layouts. They need to include a journaling block or tag and mats for 3 4 x 6 pictures on each page. They also do not want the photo mats permanently adhered to the page. That way they can flip them whichever way they need to.

We hope you will enjoy our creations! We would love for you to participate. You can make a two-page layout following the parameters outlined above and mail it directly to Crops of Luv c/o Roberta Baker, 11424 S. Pawnee Circle, Phoenix, AZ 85044. Since this blog hop is also a challenge, be sure to link your project to CWC/PCW.

If you would like more information about this organization, or would like to make a monetary or supply donation, please visit their web site,

For my project I created a girlie layout using CREATE A CRITTER:

For my journaling tags created some secret tabs that would allow them to journal and insert the tags under the picture mats.I used ribbon and the sea shell as the tabs to pull out the tags.

 Please join us in this challenge as we support the efforts of CROPS OF LUV.

Now head on over to:  Evelyn's blog and check out what she has made for this great cause!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for another layout.
