Hello Kitty

My little girl's birthday is getting closer.  Last year she wanted a Hello Kitty theme so I made these invitaion, explosion box and banner.  This year she wants a teddy bear theme with pink and purple.  I have not started anything yet and it's less than a month away!

Cards Blog Challenge - Accordion Flowers


Here's my take on this week's Cards Blog Challenge - Accordion Flowers.  In lieu of the upcoming holiday, I decided to make another Halloween card.  I used K& Co Spooktacular paper line and a Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up ghost.

Matilda Matilda Matilda

It was love at first site with Cosmo Cricket's Matilda from the moment I first saw it at the company's blog.  When I finally got my hands on it, it was way more beautiful than the pictures.  Who won't love that ghost, moon and pumpkin? I really wish it was a full line ... maybe someday.
With the Matilda line I created a simple accordion picture holder with pockets.  All the patterns come together so I created tags that will hold pictures that can be interchanged.  Instead of ribbons I used black tulle to give it a different interest and finished it off with a button and some twine.

I also made a card using Matilda's line Mummy pattern and matched it up with a stamp from M's $1 bin. 

Spooktacular!


A couple of Halloween projects I did using K & Co Spooktacular paper line.  I used a house mini chipboard album from M's and covered it with paper then painted the edges with black acrylic paint.  For the card I used the scraps from the mini album and added the "Boo" sentiment from Cricut's Happy Hauntings cartridge.  To make the sentiment stand out from the busy background I covered it with glossy accents.
