Hello Kitty Projects

Hi everyone! Well I been creating here and there. I really miss sharing my creations with you folks. I know, I know these are late post but better late than never. I still do love crafting and I can ever get enough of it. Well here are some Hello Kitty projects that I have made ending of last year and this year. Everybody loves Hello Kitty, who doesn't right.

Here is a Hello Kitty Cakepops bouquet I made for my cousin. She wanted to share it with her gymnastics friends since she had practice that day. The flavor for the cakepops is red velvet dipped in white chocolate. It took time making the hello kitty faces, but I sure had fun making them it was my first time. I'm so glad she and her friend enjoy eating them.
I do love to bake as well. Here is a cupcake stand with red velvet cupcakes and peanut butter cupcakes I made for one of my best friends birthday.
Here's the recipe for red velvet cupcakes
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2 (1oz) bottles of red food coloring
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
2 eggs
1tsp white vinegar
1 tsp baking soda
1 container whipped cheese frosting

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 18 standard (2 1/2 inch) muffin cups with paper baking cups. Combine flour and salt in medium bowl. Gradually stir food coloring into cocoa in small bowl until blended and smooth. Combine buttermilk and vanilla in separate small bowl.
2. Beat sugar and butter in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed about 4 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add cocoa mixture, beat until well blended. Add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk mixture,beating until blended. Combine vinegar and baking soda in small bowl, gently fold into batter with spatula or spoon ( do not use mixer)
3. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling two thirds full. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into centers comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove to racks; cool completely. Frost cupcakes and sprinkle with any toppings. Hope you have a chance to make some, so far this is the best recipe for red velvet cupcakes.

Then here is some Hello Kitty favors I made for my friend's baby shower made 30 of these and had to ship it to California. The favor box is made from Sizzix XL die called bag with heart handles inside is a bag of furikake chex mix with macadamia nuts.

Here is a guest sign up book I made for her. I left some pages blank so that people could leave messages on there.
Thank You for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Peyton's Birthday Party

Hi everyone! Happy Aloha Friday! Last month I had another big project to do. Her theme is Roxy at first it was suppose to be Candy land but she decided to stick with Roxy and glad she went with it. I just started beginning of September and the party was on October 9 with last minute decisions. Here was my first sample, she wanted me to make it into a Roxy dress this could fit in a 4.25" by 5.5" envelope. But since I had a short notice to probably do 100 of these and it needed to go out 3rd week of September. We decided to go with something a little simple and easy to do. Well this first sample was cut using my Cricut and Make a Cut Software. The Roxy logo was clip art from on-line.

Here is the picture she had given. I wasn't able to take a good picture of her since Peyton kept pulling out the flower in her hair so her mom was going to try later and she got the perfect shot of her. She ask me if I know how to make it in black and white and focus on one object into it's original colored. I told her I didn't know how but I could give it a try and learn how to do it. Went to google it and found how to do it in Adobe Photoshop. I just love learning new technique in Photoshop. Love this dramatic effect.

So here's the final invitation. Design the invitation in Photoshop. I had to make 100 of these. It came with the invitation, RSVP card, Map, and directions to the party and matching envelopes.

The composition books was part of the kids goodie bag. I had to make 35 notebooks for girls. Here are some of it, I forgot to take picture of all of it. Finally got a chance to use some of my good paper which I didn't want to but it match the theme. Roxy logo is cut with my Cricut and Make a Cut Software.

Here's the composition books for the boys I made it Quiksilver. Did you know that Quiksilver logo is half of the Roxy logo? Since it's the same company. I had to make 32 notebooks for the boys. I'm so glad to get these notebook done, I only had 1 week to make 67 notebook since she just gave me the notebook last week. I also made name tags but didn't take a picture of it :(. Each kid had a notebook,name tag, cotton candy, and a bag of chips. Yummy wish I had a goodie bag for me. LOL The babies 1 year old and younger had another goodie bag.

Here is the guest book. Just cover it with a DP front and back and use the same design as the invitation and printed out. Use my Bind it All machine to bind it together.

Here's the money box, glad I had polka dot gift wrapper, wrap around the box made a slit on the top so they can put the envelopes in. The Roxy and name was cut with my Cricut and Make a Cut Software. Added Flowers from Prima Flower.

Thank you for sticking with me in this long post. Now need to start getting ready for work so excited it's the weekend tomorrow spending time with the family and will check out the New Product and Food expo. Have a great weekend.

TGF He-Art Journal - Week 1 Spead Your Wings

Hi everyone! I was crazy to challenge myself in signing up for TGF's He-ART Journal class, seeing how I already have so much going on in my life. But I was determine to try new things in using different mixed media related to crafting, which I still have so much to learn and explore of. It's a 23 week course,doing 2 page journal art work per week each week there will assign theme to be complete. I just hope i can keep up.

Here is my journal cover. I made this notebook using my Bind It All machine. Letters are from magazines that I cut up. The image is from TGF - Cheeky Nurse colored her using prismacolor pencils. I haven't use that a long time, didn't even know I had them. LOL. I also added some stickers. The sentiment on the heart says " Listen to my Heart" and also a stickers that says "Live out Loud."

Here is my 1st week's assignment the subject is "SPREAD YOUR WINGS!" I wanted to do a butterfly theme which is related to wings. First I started with the background using pastel chalks from The Stencil Collection in blue and aqua green color. Then sprayed some SU Gold Glow Smooch Spritz. Made my own rainbow using copic pens and added some Icicle stickles. The cloud is a stamp from Mindy Terasawa Clear Stamps called Animals. The big butterfly die cut is from my cricut using Potpourri Basket cartridge. Also use Martha Stewart Butterfly punch out added some butterfly stamps too and a butterfly sticker. Added TGF image - Flutter Anya and colored her with copic pens. Since the theme is Spread your Wings it remind me of the song from Mariah Carey called "Butterfly". I had so much doing this.

Well that's it for now. I have some good news since school started on Monday for my son he is now in 3rd grade and wow first day of school we got a letter he was nervous thinking he did something bad but no he did not it was a surprise that he got nominated to be part of the gifted & talented student's program. I'm so proud of him doing so good at school and behaving him self. I know this year for him will be tough with tons of homework and reading but I know he can do it. And for that I will have a small blog candy to give out. I will gathered and get some things and will post it sometime next week. So be sure to come back and visit my blog. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day :)

Busy in my Kitchen

Hi everyone! I know I been behind on posting. It's hard to post when my computer's down and only chance I have is when my hubby lend me his laptop. I have access on my phone but it's not easy blogging, so much easier posting it on facebook. Haha , but now my computer is working my hubby fix it and no more waiting for my turn for the computer. Well I been quite busy in my kitchen. I just got the Cricut cake for Mother's day, I had to give it a try. My first attempt to bake a cake and decorate it. Since it was my coworker birthday on Wednesday and she loves red velvet cake, I wasn't sure if she like Hello Kitty but I'm sure she didn't mind and who doesn't love Hello Kitty. I use fondant on the Hello Kitty and letters. Beside baking cake and cupcakes, I love making cake pops too. Cake pops is made from cake and frosting then mix together, shape it into a ball and dipped in melted chocolate. Then add any sprinkles or topping if you wish. My next attempt is to make it into different shape and make them into characters that's another challenge for me to do since I bought the book on Cake Pops and can't wait to give it a try.

Happy Saturday! Hope I have time to do some paper crafting and coloring, Oh how I miss my Copics. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend.

Hi everyone! Wow what a busy January I had. And can't believe it's already February is done. Gosh it's already March too. Well I'm so sorry for my absence of posting, but I've genuinely had so much exciting things to do! With me turning 30 on January 24 and I just had so much events going on beginning of January I had my godson first birthday and bapistal to attend and I also made the money box and guest book for him and I was suppose to do some cupcake toppers decoration but with the 1 week notice I just haven't had the time to do it. So I'll show you the moneybox and guest book I made, it was Sesame Street theme. But here is my big project of the month of January where I made 150 invitations, 260 favors tags, 70 kids name tags for the goodies bag, decorate the money jar, and a guestbook. So here is the money jar I had to decorate only the jar , the jar was made by my aunty's co-work. I had my cousin's tape the jar with washi tape. The Tinkerbell cuts were from my Cricut and cartridge is called Tinker Bell and Friends. Added some ribbons, flowers and butterflies and a picture of the birthday girl.

Then here is the guestbook I made. I use a Tinkerbell DP to cover front and back on a chipboard. The cover is design using Adobe Photoshop. I use my Bind It All to bind them together and added ribbons on the wires.

Here's the invitations I created. I had to make 150 of these. It's a pocket invitation this style is a pocket tag invitation. I use my Cricut and DS to create this invitation template. Then I use my Big Shot and SU emboss folder for the floral background. The Tinkerbell emboss and cut is from Cuttlebug. The butterflies both small and large is from Martha Stewart punches. I also added a ribbon and a bling on the big butterfly. Oops forgot to take picture of the RSVP card and godparent list.

Here is the favors. It's a butterfly key chain. It already had the box and ribbon all I had to do is make the label. I just printed out the Thank you note on a pink paper and punch it with a medium heart shape punch made from Marvy.

Here is the goodie bags for the kids. It is a plastic basket filled with lots of goodie. Such as chips, Caprisun drink, activity coloring book, pencils, the girls had a Tinkerbell mini coin bag and the boy's had a Mickey mouse coin container and of course some candies to go along with it. Each kid had their own personal name tag. The boys had a Mickey mouse name tags and the girls had Tinker Bell name tags. Wish I had a goodie bag. LOL.

Here is the birthday banner. My aunty's friend gave us her daughter's banner that they use and we decided to re use it and just change the name. Added some plastic flowers and more butterflies. The Tinkerbell was made from my hubby's cousin.
Also I design the background for the Photo booth they had a the party. She wanted it similar to the invitation design. Here's the picture I took with my family.Thank you for staying my me in this long post. I was honor to do this project especially for my goddaughter. I had so much fun even with all that work.

Heat Transfer

Hi everyone! So glad it's Friday and that the weekend is here especially since I have a 3 day weekend, Monday is a holiday and no work for me. Well here are some of the projects I was working on during the holidays. I wanted to make some homemade gifts for Christmas and since I had 1 week vacation time. I decided to make some T-shirts for the kids in my family. Here I use Silhouette heat transfer material they have two type either smooth or flocked. I don't have the Silhouette machine but I figure out how to use this on my Cricut. I also use the Cricut cartridge in Hello Kitty and Create a Critter. The fonts were from The Make the Cut program. For the boys I made the Hawaiian Islands, I downloaded the image from the Internet and load it to the Make the Cut program. I had so much fun making these, hope to make more of these and buy more heat transfer sheet in different colors. Thanks again for stopping by, I really appreciate you all for taking the time to visit me and leaving lovely comments about my project. Have a great weekend.
