Hello Kitty

Hello friends...Sorry its been so long since I've blogged. Unfortunately I suffer from severe back pain mixed with arthritis and fibromyalgia. I consider my card crafting as my happy therapy to help keep my mind of my daily pain....but unfortunately pain got the best of me over the last week. So therefore, although I have crafted some, blogging has been difficult because I'm in so much pain once I finish my project for the day.

Today I finished an adorable little composition notebook for my little girlie. I made one for her Daddy a month or so back and she has been begging me to make one for her too. I know how much she loves kitties, especially "Hello Kitty" so I decided to start there. I let her pick out her background card stock which came with adhesive backing on it. I then added some Hello Kitty washi tape down the binded edge to help hold down the card stock. I finally received (after two months on back order) my Kelly Purkey iPhone die cut...and can I just say that I AM IN LOVE! It is soooo cute and so easy to use. I cut it out in white card stock to look like Mommy's iPhone and added one of the adorable kitty stamps from "Newton's Nook". I left the kitten white and colored its cute little nose and ears pink with my copic markers. SOOOOO adorable. I then stamped hello (from Lawn Fawn's "So Much to Say" set) underneath the kitty with memento luxe ink (in rosebud) which I then embossed with Hero Arts clear embossing powder. I then covered the screen with a ton of glossy accents so that it looks like a true iPhone....perfect! And last but not least I added a couple tabs and some clear "Wink of Stella" on some of the hearts in the background and on the tabs! I love love love how it turned out, but most importantly, my daughter loves how it turned out even more :). ENJOY!
