Getting Cricky "SNOW MUCH FUN" Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Snow Much Fun" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  In addition to Kristal and the Senior Design Team, we look forward to introducing you to the rest of our NEW Junior Design Team (be sure to visit Kristal's Blog to see ALL of our "new additions"!!)...  Each of us, along with our Special Guest - Patty from "Creative Diva", are so pleased to have you here with us!!  Throughout the hop, you'll see NEW ideas for creating cards and projects with Kristal's stamps sets!!

If you've hopped along from Lisa then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Kristal's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!)...

Each of Kristal's stamp sets benefit charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to benefit the charity noted on the stamp set package. Kristal is donating to the following charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS  Foundation, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), Wayside House for Women, Camp Good Days & Special Times, Adopt a Classroom, and Autism Research Institute. Kristal will donate $1 for every stamp set sold, retail or wholesale to the charity noted; and over time believes this will add up to some wonderful miracles for these special people. So you can feel good that each time you purchase a K Andrew Designs art stamp set, someone around the country is receiving some good help!

K Andrew's stamps are all made and assembled here in the USA, which is very important to Kristal. This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained here in America.  You can learn even more about Kristal's stamps (and pick some up for yourself) by visiting her online store: K Andrew Designs:

Kristal's stamp sets are perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...

For my project, I'm featuring the Winter Wishes!!  For more details or to make this set YOURS, please click on the preview:

Winter Wishes

I cut 3" circles on my Imagine, 8 total, alternating a red and a green pattern on each circle.  I then scored them in half, folded and used a Bone folder to get a crisp fold.  I attached all the circles together with the gold cording inbetween and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Fired Brick.  Stamped all the little snow flakes, added the beads and tag!!

Now you can hop on over to your next stop: AMY......

It's Monday!!!

Hello all my Bloggie friends, I hope you are all doing well!!  I don't know about you but I just cannot believe that it's December already!!  20 more day's till Christmas...HUH!!!  I guess that is why I have been sooo busy and haven't really posted a project in a few days!!

I purchased the Cricut Imagine on Black Friday (for $187 at Wal Mart) Whooo Hooo...and this was one of the first cuts I made on it.  I used my "Coffee and Tea for you and me" and "Winter Wishes" stamp sets from K. Andrew Design, some craft cardstock for the base and the pattern is from one of the winter packs by My Minds Eye.

I will have more Imagine projects for you as I get time to sit down and play with it!!  I still have a ton to learn!!

Until then,
Hug's and Happy Craftin!!!
