Hawaii Paper Party Hello Kitty Blog Hop!

Happy Birthday Cely!

Aloha Hoppers!  Welcome to the Hawaii Paper Party Hello Kitty Blog Hop. I hope everyone enjoys the hop! We are celebrating Cely's Birthday with either Hello Kitty or Birthday themed projects!  What a great way to start the week! You should have arrived here from Shar's Blog. If you have stumbled upon our awesome blog hop please to Cely's blog, you don't want to miss out on all the fun and it began at Hawaii Paper Party Now on to my projects for Cely.  First we have the Birthday Card that I have made for her. (Of course it will be getting to her a little late because I still have it in NY)

I used the Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut Cartridge's card function.

For a special surprise for our birthday girl I have made part of her birthday present. (Which she will also receive late because I still have it. I am always afraid to send my projects out before the post appears for fear I will delete the image!)  OK Cely here is part of your gift coming your way!
 This is a stationary box made from 2 pieces of 12 x 12 double sided card stock.
When you open it up, you have a little book for addresses, a pocket for your postage stamps and three compartments for various size cards or tags.
These are the smallest of the cards measuring 3 x 2 1/4
These are the medium cards measuring 3 x 3 1/4
This is the first of the A2 (largest) cards, I love the inside of this one so I added a photo of it.
This is the second of the A2 cards.
This is the third of the A2 cards.
Of course they all have there very own coordinating envelope. With Craft Power tape, they are ready to seal and mail.
And finally if wouldn't be a completed stationary on the go set with out a pen with a coordinating charm!
As a side note I used Zip Dry Glue to hold down the pieces of elastic to hold the pen. The elastic only came in white and I wanted blue so I used my Copic B000 and colored it to match.

Papers used-Martha Stewart Paper Pack, various Bazzill cardstock, Stamps from My Pink Stamper, Fiskars and Hero Arts.  I will have an uploaded video on making the stationary box some time in August so remember to stop by.

OK it's time to head on over to Amber's at My 3 E Scrapbooking and see what fabulous Hello Kitty or Birthday themed project she has made.  Enjoy the hop and have a great week!

Don't forget to wish Cely a very Happy Birthday!
