It’s Saturday, so it’s krafty time with Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! This week our hostess is STEPHANIE and she has a fun challenge – Stash It UP!! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp that uses some leftover stuff in your stash!
For this challenge, I decided to work with a set of pencils that I found in my crafty stash. I have been hoping to use them for an altered pencil holder for awhile now, so this was the perfect opportunity! I thought that the little nerdy boy from the Smarty Pants set was perfect (really, all of the cuties from this set would be great), and I also decided to mix and match some leftover bits of two different Doodlebug stacks (I know – shocking right??!!). All in all, I love the way this project turned out!
Now check out the wonderful creations by our Krafty Girls and special Krafty Guests featuring this week’s challenge!! We’re sure you’ll be inspired!! Then join us, play along and you could WIN!!
And don’t forget to check out all the great things that Kim has going on right now – challenge sponsorship on the Kit and Clowder community, Frugal Friday specials and more!

Good morning everyone! It’s Saturday, and here at SCS, that usually means I get to share some inspiration for the weekly challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!!
This week our hostess is Sheri and her challenge is FLOWERS!! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp that features flowers in some way! So in the image itself, in the patterned paper, add flower diecuts or flower embellishments!! Woohoo! We love to see flowers!!
For this little card, I decided to draw in my flowers! I love this cute stamp from KKS’s “Pretty Little PIxies” set. There is actually a really cute single flower stamp that goes with this cutie, but I thought it would be fun to make it look like she was growing a whole garden, complete with a sentiment. She’s a pixie after all – and they are magical little beings, aren’t they?
We are ALSO sponsoring the challenge over on the Kit and Clowder online colouring community!!! Their challenge is WINGS so if you create a card featuring FLOWERS AND WINGS, you can enter it into BOTH challenges for DOUBLE the chances to WIN!!! How awesome is that? So, go check out the wonderful creations by our Krafty Girls and special Krafty Guests featuring this week’s challenge and head over to the Kit and Clowder online clolouring community for their challenge!! We’re sure you’ll be inspired!! Then join us, play along and you could WIN!!

Okay, here’s the thing – I love a good pun! In fact, most of my cards here at SCS have some sort of play on words. So, when I was originally thinking about this card today, I thought I would play a bit with the work “believe”, teaming it up with the bee hive for more of a “bee-lieve” card.
But once I started fussy cutting the elements from DCWV’s new Honey Chic stack, and started layering them on top of each other, the card seemed so elegant that my happy little pun just didn’t seem to fit. So, as much as I hate to say it, I bee-lieve that this card is much better pun free (but perhaps not this post about it ;)).
If you haven’t seen this great new stack yet, it’s worth a trip down to your local JoAnn to have a look! The colours are fresh and the patterns are crisp, and it is filled with lots of great journaling tags and fussy cutting delights. I have already used it three times this month (another card and a layout), and I am not finished yet! In fact, I have a fun little home decor project to show you next week!
Well, that’s it for me today! I hope you have an amazing weekend, and have some time to get crafty or to do something else that you really love! Thanks for stopping by!
I have some pictures of my little gals that have been waiting around quite awhile to make their way onto a scrapbook page. I love it when my pages can help tell a story about the girls – it’s really why I create them in the first place – and while, for me, the paper is not “the story” it really can be one of those really important supporting characters. So sometimes, waiting for “the right paper” is worth it!
When the new “Honey Chic” stack from DCWV arrived on my door step, I was immediately struck by the fresh colours. Here in Canada, it can take awhile for the full transition from winter to spring, so while we start to see bright pops of green around April, there are still lots of browns and deeper colours to provide lots of contrast.
This stack is full of that fresh contrast in patterns and colours, so I thought it was a great support to some pictures I have of my youngest daughter – our little spit fire who is all about fun, playful adventures!
I love that there are some really feminine patterns and colours in this stack without being overly girlie. There are also a bung of great journaling tags that are even bold an bright enough to double as a title or feature for your page – like this one with a great “Hello Gorgeous” graphic.
Oh, and now a days, a layout simply would not be complete without some fussy cutting, so this one features some great little flowers that are cut from one of the patterns – easy little shapes that can be bent up on the edges for a bit more dimension.
So there you have it. I love these pictures of my little gal, but I think this paper really helps to make them pop and tell the story of my littlest character! Thanks for stopping by!
