Hello Kitty Boxes

Hello!  Happy Monday!  Can't believe there are only 2 more months of school left and it'll be summer soon.  This year is really flying by and my kids are growing so fast!  Wish everything could slow down a bit.  In between some DT projects, I've been trying to make some Hello Kitty boxes.

This is the first box I made using La-La Land's Trinket Box Kit.  I love these little boxes and it does take some time to put everything together but so worth it in the end.  This Hello Kitty is from an older Sizzix die and it's all pieced together with some crushed velvet cardstock.  Sorry if the photo seems a bit bright.  All that gold cardstock seems to throw the color off.

Here is a different angle to show the layering of Hello Kitty's heart and arm.

This is the inside.  I used some washi paper I purchased online from Hanko Designs.  These are so pretty!

Here's another box using a different Hello Kitty die but same idea.

The inside of this box.

I've been hoping to make more of these but time is always a factor and I don't even have a regular job!  Wish I could manage my time better in between all the housework and kids' stuff. 

Thanks for visiting!

Hello Kitty and cherry blossom paper are like milk and cookies. You did a masterful job of putting the box together. The gold adds a rich, Asian touch....beautiful!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!
