Grand Vacations Achievers Blog Hop - All you need is Love

I really missed playing along last month but it was just to hectic due to the holiday and I was a bit swamped with my pet sitting duties and I had to skip participating. But I am back this month!

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop for January. This month our theme is "All you need is Love". We are sure you will find great inspiration from the projects that you are about to see.

If you are reading my blog in an email, please be sure to click over to my blog to see the hop list on the very bottom.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Claudia Perry or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Claudia Perry.

I have to admit that I don't really care for the "traditional" pink and red Valentines color combinations... so I went a slightly different route and used Blackberry Bliss and Blushing Bride!

I really want to point out that it is so very easy to match colors with all of our offerings. See instinctively, I wanted to use Candy Dots in Blackberry Bliss... BUT we don't have them since that color is in the In-Color group. So I pulled out the Candy Dots anyways and looked that the ones in Rich Razzleberry and they "go" with it very well... Problem solved!

A little tip to inlay the heart:

I placed the Blushing Bride heart into the Blackberry Bliss "frame". Then flipped it over and added little strips of "Tear & Tape" in areas that I could use like a bridge between the heart and frame to keep the heart attached...

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog - Claudia Perry, so check the blog hop line up list on the very bottom of this post to see who is next in the list.

Blog Hop Line up... have fun hopping:


  1. Pretty colors and I love all the extra bling by mixing and matching rhinestones and candy dots!

  2. I have to say, it makes me a little CRAY that the blushing bride isn't a perfect match. You knocked it out of the park! Beautiful pairing with the colors my friend!

  3. Great tip for getting the heart lined up in the frame and glue-tape on it. And super reminder - those Razzleberry candy dots masquerade quite nicely as Blackberry Bliss, don't they?! Thanks for joining this month. Happy hopping and God Bless, ~Cynthia <><
