Hello Kitty Shirt

I found some heat set vinyl and made this cute shirt for my grand-daughter. She absolutely loves it and I will be making more for her!!!!

Hello Kitty Silhouette cut at 4"

Sorry the second picture is a bit blurry. She was so excited about her "cat cat" shirt that she just couldn't stand still long enough for me to get a good picture.

Thanks for looking,

Metal box from Hobby Lobby
I attached paper & ribbon with Terrifically Tacky Tape
Cards - cut from New Arrival - cut at 7.75" (I made 50 cards/envelopes)
Thank You stamp is from one of My Pink Stamper's stamp sets, I'm not sure which one at the moment.


The images on the gift bags were cut from Car Decals. Sorry, I can't seem to find the piece of paper where I wrote down what sizes I cut these out at. Hopefully I will come across it when I clean up the craft room.


Circles cut from George at various sizes from .25" to 1.5"
Name cut at 1.75" from Nursery Rhymes

I also made a little name banner to put across the front of the gift table, but I didn't get a picture of it. I will have to check to see if anyone else did. I will post it later if I can find one.

Whew .... time to clean up the craft room so I can start on my next projects!

Thanks for looking,
