Flaunt It Friday Hello Kitty Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to the Flaunt It Friday's Hello Kitty Blog Hop! If you are here from Jenny Johnson, then you are in the right spot. If you just arrived here and would like to start from the beginning please go directly to Flaunt It Fridays. For this week's challenge we were asked to flaunt the Hello Kitty with Airplane on Page 65 from the Hello Kitty Greetings Cart.


I am so excited to be participating in Flaunt It Friday Hello Kitty Greetings Blog Hop with Janis, Sandra, and the talented design team. We were asked to flaunt the airplane cut from Cricut Hello Kitty but I do not have that cartridge. Wanting to play along, I am using the airplane cut on page 66 from Everyday Paper Dolls. My project is an altered gift bag that I decorated with a Valentine's theme. The white strips are cut using the Martha Stewart Lace Heart edge punch and glued to my patterned paper background. I cut the airplane at 2 3/4 inches using a patterned paper. Ballons are cut 2, 2 1/2, and 3 inches from Create a Critter page 49. The phrase Special Delivery is also cut from Create a Critter page 67 at 1 1/2 inch. Wanting to add a bit of interest to the balloons, I chose Love Struck 2010 for the heart words. A bit of lace and gemstones from my stash and my altered bag is ready for gift giving!


For my second project, I made a tag for the gift bag. The tag is the Smitten Kitten cut on page 45 from Sweethearts cartridge and is cut 3 3/4 inches. The reverse of the tag is the Heart tag on page 32 from the same cartridge. I cut a strip of white paper using the Martha Stewart Heart Lace punch and glued it between the two tags.


 Now how about a little blog candy!!



This pretty pack of Colorbok paper has 30 (8 1/2X11 in) papers, 134 stickers, and 74 punch-outs. Also included is a package of Favorite Findings buttons. All you must do to qualify to win my Blog Candy is to leave a comment of this post. You do not have to be a follower, but of course, I would love it if you were!
Please leave a way to contact you. USA mailing address only.

Our hop will run all weekend long and I will chose the winner for my blog candy on Monday Jan. 10th.
You must leave a comment on everyone's blog to have a chance to win the Grand Prize Giveaway which is the Love Always stamp set sponsored by Pink By Design. The grand prize will be on Sandra's blog! You will have all weekend to complete the hop and we will draw the winner sometime on Monday or Tuesday.
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 Flaunt It Fridays .
Your NEXT STOP is Viviana.
