Wishing You Luck! Back Pack

 Since the challenge this week is back to school, I wanted to make another backpack, see the others here.
I love the sweet little faces of Kawaii, they are just so cute and fun!  This fun little back pack is from the SVG Cutting Files Store, it is the Kawaii Back Pack Box.  For the tag I used the Tiny Tags Metal Dies and stamped it with the Tiny Tags Stamp set.  I then tied it onto the ribbon (from Stampin Up) with Yellow Jute String, these products are from My Craft Spot.

My Craft Spot Weekly Challenge #150

It's time for another weekly challenge over at My Craft Spot.  The challenge this week is "Back to School".  Just in time to make some fun things for all the kiddos in your life going back to school.  I made this backpack from SVG Cuts.  The blue one is the size it comes on the mat, it is very large.  I resized it so I could cut the base from one sheet of paper for the green and red ones.  The stamp is from the Banner Sentiments stamp set and cut with the Ribbon Banners - Straight metal dies.  These were so fun and easy to make, love them!

And now for my Project!
So for those that follow me on a regular basis, you know that my youngest (who just graduated high school!) is adopted from China.  So I was very excited to make Mulan and Mushu! I think her eyes are just beautiful!  Annie from SVG Cutting Files did such a wonderful job creating them.  I didn't glue down the center bang piece of her hair so it would stick up a bit.  My card is a 5x5 Mulan is sized at 4" tall with Mushu sized along with her.  I used the new Best Friends stamps from Jaded Blossom for the sentiment and the new BFF Candies for the inside and the back of the card, I then signed my initials in the circle on the back.

Now on to your next stop, click the cute image below to be taken there!

Welcome to the neighborhood Kawaii box

Well if you follow me at all you know I love 3D things.  They just make me happy!! Since the challenge this week at My Craft Spot is Bags and Boxes I had to make something for it! 
 How can you not love this little box?  I mean really look at that sweet face!  This box is the Kawaii House Treat Box from SVG Cutting Files, so quick and easy to do!  For the sentiment I hand cut a banner and stamped it with the Friends & Neighbors - Inside & Out stamp set from My Craft Spot.  I glued it on the straw and then tied on Maraschino Twine.

Happy Birthday Card

I  need a bunch of birthday cards, so I have been making a ton of them lately.  This is a super fun shape card by Lori Whitlock from the Silhouette Store. I love the shape of this card and it folds flat and fits into an A2 size envelope...perfect!
The sentiments on the baloons are from the Tiny Tags 2 and Tiny Tags 3 stamp sets, from My Craft Spot.  I know the green one doesn't show up much in the photo, but in person it does.  The twine is Pea Pod also from My Craft Spot.
