CCE Exchange - August 2014

For this month's card exchange our theme is 'Feel Better' 
I could be a sympathy, encouragement, or get well.
I decided on a get well soon theme. 



Since I've been having so much fun with these Hello Kitties, I thought I'd make the little doctor too!

21st Birthday Card

I made a card for my card exchange group in June (you can see it here) & was asked to make a card like it for a 21st birthday :) I am honored when people enjoy my crafts & want to pass one on to a loved one! Hopefully this one stands up! I was told it was for a 21st birthday for an amateur photographer & her favorite color is purple... Here is what I came up with!! 
The lens & flash are glitter paper. I put little bits of bling for the shaking part :)

Hello Kitty

Jaded Blossom & SVG Cutting Files had an awesome 2nd annual Hello Kitty blog hop last weekend. 
Participating in the hop allowed me to receive a BUNCH of FREE files! 
I decided to make a card today!
I used the ornate card base from SVG Cutting Files. I wrapped Trendy Twine around the layer & then used dimensionals to adhere my Hello Kitty. Instead of the circle for the middle of her bow, I used a flower die from the Spring Dies set from Jaded Blossom. I added rhinestones to her glasses & used white & black stitching to give it a little extra. I used a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Kawaii Sentiments on the inside of the card. I did order the new Hello Hello stamp set, but haven't received it yet... I might add a sentiment to the front once the stamps are in my hands ;)

Little gifts for all the guests :)

Sorry for the not so great photo, but here is the banner I made. 
I used the Ticket Book Die from Jaded Blossom for my base of my banner. Cut the letters out of glitter paper. Used Create a Critter for the zebras.  Trendy Twine to link it together - Pink Midnight


A little close up :) 


Of course I had to personalize onesies too :)


Just a touch of glitter ;)


And of course a little pic of us :)

This week was a fun one on Jaded Blossom's Group of Creativity on Facebook. They had a customer contest.
