Claudia & Co Blog Hop


Hello and Welcome to Claudia and Company's first ever Customer Blog Hop!
We’re so excited to have you join us!
Today Claudia and Company is celebrating all of US; their dear friends and customers and that includes YOU!

If you’ve just joined the fun, be sure to pop over to the Claudia and Company Blog to start the hop and get all the deets!
Hi all, today I made a luminaria using the Love vase digital  from C&Co. When I saw this little vase I just had to have it and right away I envisioned a soft glowing light inside the luminaria as a backdrop for this cute little image. I used some vanilla embossed paper I found at a garage sale for the base and confetti specked vellum to cover the little windows created with my large scallop nestie. I took a piece of vanilla paper and used a border punch along the edge and inserted it inside the top portion of the luminaria. I then took a piece of very curly/sparkly ribbon and wrapped around the top leaving a little extra to curl down the sides and topped the knot of the ribbon with a deep red rhinestone...I colored my Love Vase with copic markers and touched it up with a little glitter here and there...each side of the luminaria has it's own little vase. I had fun with this and I hope you enjoy my little project for today..

Be sure and leave a comment on each of today’s fabulous posts, to be eligible for the prizes that are up for grabs! You'll have until Monday, February 28, 12pm EST to comment. Winners will be announced on March 1, during their Release Day Showcase.
