Hello Kitty! This Year's Valentine's Treat

Hi Everyone,
Rory and I used Kris's "Finish it Friday" inspiration to complete Rory's school Valentine's.  As soon as I got home from work (and while Poppy was making awesome dinner magic)  Rory and I set our sight on finishing up her favor treats for school.  I have to say that Rory did a fantastic job gluing kitty to the background.  She did them all herself.  I gave her a ZIG 2 way glue pen instead of a glue stick.  I was amazed how much easier it was for her to use.  I think the blue color of the glue is what helped.  She seemed to really have control over the glue and no mess at all.  If I remember Elmers made a blue glue stick at one time, but I have no idea if it is still available.  I always have ZIG on hand and now I will gladly share it with Rory.

Now for a few basics ... The print and cut of kitty was of course done with the new ZING.  I have so much success with PnCs now!  I am amazed by how quick and easy they are to do.  I used MTC to make a shadow layer, a quick copy and paste made 2 shadows. I flipped and mirrored one and them welded them to make a base to sandwich the plastic bag into.  I made the tag for the front in MTC and did a PnC as well.  Rory used pop dots to attach them.  We had a great time assembling these.

I did cut all the parts prior so that they were ready to go.  We think the kids are going to like the treats inside, but more importantly Rory and I had a great time sitting together at the craft table.  She told me when she grows up she is going to own a craft store.  I 'bout fell off my chair when she said "and Nonna I'll make you the manager"!  Yup... Just what I need another JOB! Thanks again Kris for the goal setting inspiration.  I already know whats on deck for next Friday!  Have a great weekend everyone.  SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!  GO GIANTS!!!

  2. Those are so cute! Isn't it great to have a helper. I'm on my own, for now. My helper likes to cut things when I'm not around! Thankfully no hair cutting yet. LOL! ~Kris
