Hello Kitty Birthday Invitations

Hi, everyone!

My sister asked me to make a birthday invitation for her niece, who's turning 10.  She loves Hello Kitty and will have a Hello Kitty-themed birthday party.

I saw this invitation in Baraka's blog, and I thought this would be perfect.  I changed the colors slightly.  Hello Kitty is adhered to the red band around the card with foam tape.  The red band slides down so that the card can be opened.  The details of the party will be inside.

Pink cardstock (The Paper Company)
White cardstock (The Paper Company)
Red cardstock (The Paper Company)
Black cardstock (The Paper Company)
Cricut cartridge used:  Hello Kitty Greetings
 Cuttlebug folder used:  D'vine Swirls
I also made a coordinating envelope for the invitation:

I hope my sister's niece likes her invitation!

Four Seasons Note Cards

Hello, everyone!  This is the CricutAddict's sister, and this is my first post on this blog.  I am new to blogging, and new to crafting, but my sister's addiction is contagious, so here I am.

It's been snowing hard here the whole weekend, which reminds me that winter is still here.  And here I was, already ready for spring!  I know the spring, summer, and fall will be here soon enough.

In the meantime, here are my note cards (3 inches x3 inches):

White card stock is from Walmart (Georgia-Pacific).
Colored card stock is from Michael's or Jo-ann.
Background cardstock is from Hobby Lobby and DCWV.
Stamp set is from Stampin' Up (Season by Season).
Cricut cartridges used:
Spring note card - Forever Young
Autumn note card - Forever Young
Winter note card - Winter Woodland
Summer note card - Life's a Beach

Here's a closer look at them:

I used flowers for the four seasons because I wanted to explore what are available in the Cricut cartridges.  You can easily substitute a snow flake, flower, sun, and a leaf for the ones I used to make note cards for different seasons.

Have a good day!

Hello and Goodbye!

I joined Stampin' Up as a demonstrator, and as such, I would like to use Stampin' Up products.  I thought long and hard about this decision, because I don't want to shut down this blog.  I finally came up with the perfect solution.  My very talented sister will be taking over this blog for me.

Aside from the change in blog authors, the blog will more or less stay the same, unless she would like to change things up a bit (and truthfully, I won't mind if she does -- she is very creative and artistic!).

I have started a new blog for Stampin' Up, and please drop by and say hi to me there.

So, it's goodbye for now for me (for this blog), and please say "hello" to my sister!

Thanks everyone!
