Hello Kitty Blog Hop

**If you are looking for the Dia de Reyes Blog Hop click here.**

Hello everyone welcome to the Flaunt  it Friday’s Blog hop. If you came here from Rose's blog then you are in the right spot. If you just stumbled upon my blog and want to start from the beginning from the Flaunt it Fridays blog, you really don’t want to miss one stop there are so many amazing projects and great blog candy along the way!

There is also a grand prize which was graciously sponsored by Pink by design; one of her brand new stamp sets Love Always ( I really want this set lol). In order to qualify for the grand prize you must leave a comment on everyone’s blog to have a chance to win! I will also be giving away some blog candy, but not sure what yet ( sorry didn’t get to go shopping), but I will be heading out to Michaels in the morning and I will pick something up and I will post the winner on Tuesday January 11th so be sure to stop back and check if you were my winner!

Ok now for my project: For this week's challenge we were asked to flaunt the Hello Kitty with Airplane on Page 65 from the Hello Kitty Greetings Cart, but I do not have this cart so I really had to get creative and this is what I came up with.

A post it note holderHELLOKITTYMaterials used:

  • Imagine more cartridge (used it for the patterned paper and to color in my cuts)
  • Create a Critter Cartridge ( for the kitty and clouds) I was amazed at how much it looks like Hello Kitty!
  • B is for boy ( for the plane, but I had to alter the plane a bit)
  • mini post it notes
  • plastic frame from Walmart (it was only $1.00)
  • sentiment is from TPS Studio’s Hugs and Kisses stamp set (from Michaels)
  • white gel pen
  • memento red ink pad

This was super easy and makes a really nice gift.


Now for my second project we got to choose any cut from the Hello Kitty Greetings, there is a really cute cut of a strawberry but since I don’t have the cartridge I chose a similar cut from another cartridge which is the strawberry from  the imagine more cartridge. For this project I decided to make a mini journal with a matching pen for my daughter Ashley who just started her own blog and she says she gets ideas for cards and writes them down on what ever paper she has lying around and sometimes they get thrown away; now she has a place to keep all of her ideas.

Isn’t it super sweet? I really love making these they are fun and cute and once I get going I can spend the whole day making them hehe!

I also wanted to say that I am so excited that I am almost at 300 followers! Whoo Hooo! Thank you everyone for supporting my blog and hopefully you get some inspiration from me cause I know I get a lot of it from all of you! Thank You so much for taking the time to hop with us for the Flaunt It Friday's Hello Kitty Blog hop we can't wait to see how you "Flaunt" your Hello Kitty this week at FIF.

Your NEXT STOP is the very talented Amanda from my scrappin obsession. Have fun hopping!
