Hello Kitty and Friends Blog Hop (Nov. 5th and 6th)

If you're looking for the "I'm Quackers About You" Blog Hop, please go here: Quackers
Hello everyone and welcome to the Hello Kitty Blog Hop! We have lots of FABULOUS projects and prizes for you today, so make sure you make a stop on every blog! This hop is a 2 day hop, so you have plenty of time to get through all of the blogs. If you've arrived here from Tammy's blog you're on the right track! If you're stopping by my blog today and want to start at the beginning, please visit Emily's blog
*********************************
Don't you just love Hello Kitty? I sure do and so does my almost 7 year old daughter who has bugged me to have a Hello Kitty themed birthday party December 6th. This blog hop was the perfect excuse to get me started on making her decorations instead of procrastinating till the last minute.
I got my Hello Kitty angel from Pudgy Bunny coloring pages. I converted it to an SVG file and added the embossed star instead of the flower she was holding. Disclaimer: I am allowed to use the coloring pages from Pudgy Bunny as long as I don't sell them or use the drawings for profit in any way.

The star is cut at 1 inch and embossed with Jeweled Gold by Stampendous! 

I used Studio G gold glitter glue on the wings and Martha Stewart red glitter glue for the belt and waist bow.

I loved making the flowers for Hello Kitty's hair. They are just a basic daisy cut with rolled pedals and layered. I added a few extra touches as you can see.




The rosette took some time but were well worth it. I used a Fiskers snowflake punch around the outside. I like to have my rosettes scored when I cut them out. I used a SVG file from SVGCuts entitled Vintage Rosettes and cut my plain rosettes at 9 x 11 inches.



I used paper clips to clip it together before gluing to make sure I had enough sections. I had three sections due to it's size. I used a low temp heat gun to glue it together.
Here is my hanging Hello Kitty one more time... 
 Thank you for looking today and please stop back tomorrow. Now trot on over to Ashley's Blog and remember to leave a comment at each and every blog along the way to be eligible for the grand prize drawing. Jearise in Lorby's World

  20. Hi Jearise,
    This is a wonderful post! I love your project, very innovative! And you're so sweet to give us the how-to.
    I did a HK party for one of my grand daughters a couple of years ago. It was so fun making all the projects and buying everything HK.
    TFS

  24. Jearise, this is adorable! I love that you made the rosette so super-large and that you clipped it together to make sure it was all balanced before gluing it together. Is your sweetness's 7th birthday on December 6? My granddaughter (one and only) was born last 12/6 ... she turns one this year, though we're celebrating 12/10 with a snowman/penguin theme.

    Happy b'day to your little sweetie.

    Fondly,
