Back to School with Hello Kitty

My niece is starting the 4th grade tomorrow and I wanted to make her a special back to school card.
She loves Hello Kitty and I found this great SVG file for those of you who use Sure Cuts a Lot with your Cricut.  I added red glitter to her bow using Martha Stewart’s Garnet glitter and some Ranger Glossy Accents

I also hand-cut the pencil and paper from the Cosmo Cricket “The Boyfriend” line of cardstock.
I used lots of sold cardstock and white ink to make the card itself look like a chalk board.
I’m off to see her now ~ hope she likes it!

School Has Never Been So Fun!

I’ve seen the isles full of rainbow-colored folders and matching highlighters make their way into the grocery stores.  You know what that means ~ school days are just around the corner!
Even though my little guy is still too young for school, I’ve been getting into the spirit of things with a darling collection of classroom-inspired pin-up cards.
These are the perfect gift for a teacher (probably one you know vs. your 2nd grader’s instructor), new graduate or college student.
School has never been so much fun!
