Guest Designer Ruthie with Valentine's Door Hanger

Happy Friday!

Hey paper lovers! Today is day five and my last day, as guest designer, here on Obsessed with Scrapbooking! I have had so much fun this week, sharing my Valentine treat ideas's with you. I hope you were inspired! It's been an honor to have been asked to do this and I want to thank Joy, for all the fun that I have had this week.

Today's project is a door hanger treat.
I designed everything on my Gypsy. I sized the door hanger from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to 11 1/4" tall and the inset (patterned) piece was sized at 10 1/4" tall. I only used the back potion, so I placed it on the mat so that the back potion was the only part on the mat, hence it was the only part that cut out. I also hid the circle and replaced it with a circle at was 1 1/4", it needs to be larger. I also sized one square, from George Basic Shapes, at 3"x 2 3/4" (front piece) and two at .625"x 2 3/4" (side pieces). The "Be Mine" from the Cricut Artiste cartridge was sized to 2 1/2"x 1 1/4 and cut out. Lastly, the XL label dies were cut out, everything was inked, assembled, the twine wrapped around the pocket.
I filled the pocket with goodies from the $1 stop at Target and some hand lotion from Bath and Body Works. I attached the lips, lip gloss with a glue dot. I didn't want it to get lost in the pocket.
XL Label Dies: My Creative Time, Stitched XL Label Die & XL Label Die
Papers: PaperTrey Ink, Core'Dinations, and We R Memory Keepers
Twine: Trendy Twine, Valentine Cherry Cupcake
Socks & Lip Gloss: Target, $1 Spot
Lotion: Bath and Body Works

**Giveaway**

So I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway each day too! Today's giveaway is my favorite precision tip craft tweezers.

All you have to do is leave a comment here and on my blog with your contact information and I will pick the winner, via random.org, on Sunday, January 20th. All five winners will be announced on my blog, Monday morning, January 21st.

Thanks so much for hanging in with me this week!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
