BLOG HOP!!

Hello and welcome to the Flaunt It Friday's Hello Kitty Blog Hop! If you are here from Viviana's blog then you are in the right place. If you just arrived here and would like to start the hop from the beginning, please head on over to Flaunt It Friday's. For this week's challenge, we were asked to flaunt the Hello Kitty with the airplane, which is on page 65 of the manual, of the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge. I decided to make a scrapbook page for my project. I don't have any picture for it yet, but maybe I will after my vacation this summer. ;) The page is 12"x12." I used some Debbie Mumm paper for the background, it is from her Travel Stack. I cut out mats for two 4"x6" photos, one horizontal and one vertical. The pink paper is cut at 4 1/4"x6 1/4" and the purple paper is cut at 4 1/2"x6 1/2." I cut out the Hello Kitty in the airplane at 4," Hello Kitty in the car is cut at 3," the two suitcases are cut at 2" and the title is cut at 2." I pop-dotted the title and used some fruit punch Stickles on Hello Kitty's bow on both the images. The square for journaling is 3"x3" and the mats are cut at 3 1/4"x3 1/4" and 3 1/2"x3 1/2."



For our second project we got to pick which cut we were going to use. I chose Hello Kitty with the heart balloon, which is on page 50 of the manual. For this project I altered a plain wooden frame that I had on hand. The frame is from Michael's and I found it in the wood crafts section. I painted the frame white, it took about three coats to get it to my liking. I cut Hello Kitty at 6." I adhered her to the right side of the frame using Mod Podge. I used some ruby slipper Stickles on her balloon. The sentiment is actually glittery alphabet stickers that I found in my stash. I don't remember the brand, or even where I got them, anymore.


This is the first blog hop I have ever participated in and I am really excited about it. I hope everyone hopping along has a great time and gets some wonderful inspiration from our fab design team! Now, blog candy is optional on this blog hop, but I thought I would offer some this time around. I can't guarentee I will everytime we have a hop, but I want to celebrate a few things with this one: my first blog hop, the New Year, my birthday (it was a week ago) & the fact that I got over 100 followers (I did that earlier this month). So for my blog candy I will be giving away the retired Cricut cartridge: Mini Monograms!! Since we have so many stops on this blog hop we are going to run it all weekend long and I will pick a winner on Monday, January 10th. All you have to do to win is leave a comment!



There will be a grand prize giveaway as well! The grand prize will be the Love Always stamp set, sponsored by Pink by Design. In order to be eligable to win this prize you must comment on everyone's blog. The grand prize will be on Sandra's blog. You will have all weekend to hop and the winner will be drawn sometime on Monday or Tuesday.



Thank you so much for taking the time to hop with us on the Flaunt It Friday's Hello Kitty Blog Hop. We can't wait to see how you flaunt your Hello Kitty this week at Flaunt It Fridays, and if you don't have Hello Kitty then flaunt something similar. Your next stop on the hop is Stephanie! Enjoy your hop!!
