All of our projects in this hop are, of course, Valentine themed, and include a gem. For my project, I made a project that I saw awhile ago on Pinterest and wanted to add my own touch to it. I call it ABC Subway art. Here is the completed project:

I mounted this 12x12 ABC Subway art on a repurposed shelf from a scrapbook paper organizer.



I started by designing the file in the Cricut Craft Room. This made is so easy when I was ready to cut! I used the Birthday Cakes cartridge because I thought the font was just perfect for this project!  

I have a nice set of ABC's left from the negative cut that I used in my project! 

I mounted the negative cut on a piece of raspberry card stock to make it pop!

Some close ups of the main focus here: i <3 p="" u="">
Since I couldn't find a gem to use in this project, I used some Stickles because they glisten like a gem!



Thanks for stopping by today and remember to visit all the blogs in this hop for lots more Valentine ideas and projects!
