Here's my project!!  I have the Hello Kitty Cricut carts, but recently found all the Hello Kitty dies on the clearance at Sizzix. I got them for .49 each! I know, right?? Anyway, this die is on one of the carts, but I had my Sizzix out for other things so I cut out this cute Hello Kitty with her tiara on. I added Stickles to make it pop! I bet you can tell this card will be for my upcoming Granddaughter's birthday later this month! She loves cats, and with the balloons and presents, you can tell Hello Kitty is ready for the party!

Next up is  Jessica - so head over there to see her Hello Kitty project!

Are you Love Struck by someone that you never thought would enter your life, you boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, son or daughter? Maybe even your pet!

Well here we are again for another Krazy Crafting Crew blog hop, Lissa Marie at "So Many Crafts, So Little time" will be your host today if you would like to start there, but since you are here... let's have some fun!

If you have never hopped before it is fun and inspiring, grab your favorite drink and stay awhile for these inspirational valentine projects that are linked one after another. Lissa Marie has provided a layout sketch and a card sketch for the team to go with, and have them show you their take on how they will interprate this piece of art. We only have to do one or the other. Stick around for the blog candy that Lissa is giving away for those who have hopped by. Here is the sketches courtesy to Google on the layout and a sketch Lissa reinterpretated the scraplift from card she saw on Google.. oh yes, she is a scraplifter!

I used the layout sketch and the new Ivy Lane paper that is debuting in the new CTMH catalog, Feb. 1, 2014. I love the chevrons!! The strips are the zip strips that border the CTMH paper. I always cut them off, they make the paper a bit larger than 12 x12 but have the name, etc. on one side, and the other a great accent for your projects. They are great on cards, or layouts.. I could even cut these words apart for some projects or accents.


I'm not sure whose photo is going in this layout. Maybe my children, or great nieces or my granddaughter with a future sibling.. time will tell, but I love the sketches we had to work with. I hope you'll try one of them, they'd both be great for a layout or card.. have fun!

We all appreciate you stopping by and checking out all the projects, we all love that comment lovin' so please feel free if you like even if it was just to let us know you were here! We love visitors too!

If you didn't start from the beginning, don't forget to stop by So Many Crafts, So Litte Time to grab her instant download for blog candy!

Then you can get all the blogs in on the hop!

Here is your line up to help you navigate through..
