A Few of My Favorite Things Blog Hop!

Welcome to Creations With Becka and the ...A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS Blog Hop!

If you've come from visiting Meagan at http://beyondpaperdesigns.blogspot.com/, 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 http://www.inkingitupcrazy.blogspot.com/  and start at the beginning. We would love to share a few of our favorite things with you today!  Before we start I would like to give a special thanks to Kassidy over at http://www.inkingitupcrazy.blogspot.com/ for putting together and hosting this awesome hop today!

Each Design Team member will be featuring a project made especially for this hop using their favorite crafting tools and techniques. Make sure to check out each member's blog. There will be some fun prizes along the way, AND there will be some AWESOME ideas!

So I would like to share some of my Favorite things with you! Of course my all time favorite cartridge is Create A Critter, my favorite stamps are My Pink Stamper Stamps and my favorite adhesive for cards is the 3M ATG Gun!!! YEAH!!!
For todays project I made card sets and boxes to hold the cards in. Here are some of the pictures of the cards I made to put in the card holders:
For this card I used Pink 8 1/2 x 11 card stock, cut it in half to create an A-2 size card, then the patterned paper I am not sure who from, I bought it a long time ago, I used Create A Critter cut at 3.5" and then My Pink Stamper stamps.

I used 8 1/2 x 11 light blue card stock cut in half for an A2 card, Create A Critter cut at 3.5" and My Pink stamper stamps

Again, I used Create A Critter and My Pink Stamper stamps.

I used Create A Critter at 3.5 and My Pink Stamper Stamps.

Here are the boxes I made to hold the cards. I just thought these would make really nice gift sets.

I used Storybook for the letters and DCWV cardstock as it is a little thicker and better for holding the cards weight.  If any of you would like more information about how to make the boxes please leave it in your comments and I will make another post with a video to show you how.

Okay, so what is a blog hop with out some blog candy??? So for todays hop I will be giving away one of my favorite things that Bobbi Jo over at SweetSassyDiva introduced me to last year. I have been hooked on it ever since. So to win this awesome Pink ATG Gun, you must be a follower and leave a comment on this post. Please one comment only and US residents only, unless you would like to make up the difference in shipping costs.

On now you are off to  the next stop...Theresa's blog, http://www.thescrapbookingqueen.com/. Go see what she has in store for you today...

Cute cards and boxes.
Everyone raves about these ATG guns, they look heavy, are they really that wonderful? I'm still in the stocking up my craft room and trying out new stuff mode and just wondered if they are really worth the cost.
