Dream big

Happy Saturday everyone!  It’s challenge time at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, and this week the hostess is Stephanie.  Her challenge this week is to incorporate this new sketch into your design, so get your stamps and paper out, and get crafty!
Sketches are a lot of fun because they take some of the pressure out of crafting.  And whether only some or all of the elements work for you, sketches give you a great place to start!
For my inspiration card, I decided to work with a stamp from the “Dream Big” set, and paired it up with some paper from Authnetique’s Harmony collection.
I added a bit of eyelet ribbon from May Arts just to soften up the lines a bit too!
Now it’s your turn!  Create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp or any other stamp using this sketch as a starting point.
Oh, and Kimmie has put a dozen of her  fave stamp sets on SALE this weekend in our FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS at 25-50% OFF so be sure to check them out!

Happy kraftin’!!

What a team!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I am so very excited to share a new project with you today featuring some beautiful product from May Arts and Authentique!  This whole week, design team members from both companies have been sharing some beautiful projects using Authentique’s Harmony collection together with a variety of ribbon from May Arts.  Stash

As part of the products, I received the card making stack, and I knew immediately I could have some fun with those.  I decided to team them up with some of my favourite 3/4″ chevron twill ribbon in yellow to create some small journals! By using some embroidery thread to attach some pages, creating these journals was even easier than putting together a card.  I had so much fun I ended up making three!

So there you have it – some fun little notebooks to capture those little thoughts or moments!  I can’t wait to see what the other gals have up their sleeves today too!  And you will want to check them out and leave a message because Authentique and May Arts have put together three packages to give away to some lucky people who take a moment to comment!  We always love hearing what you think, and it’s always better when there is a prize, or two, or three!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Challenge 247


Good morning Krafty Friends!  It’s Saturday, so that means it is challenge time over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, and this is a great one because hostess Tangii has given us a sketch to work with today!

I love sketch challenges because they often get me using my supplies in new ways.  I happen to be one of those crafters that usually likes things straight across or up and down – somehow things look “wrong” to me when I try to put them at and  angled or haphazard.  But as soon as I saw this sketch, I knew it could totally work for me!  It seemed balanced and I loved the way the diagonal l seemed to point to the stamp – in this case one of my favourites from the You Know Whooo set.  I coloured the image up with Copics to match this pretty paper from Simple Stories, and then topped it off with a bit of ribbon from May Arts.

So there you have it!  I hope you will consider joining us for the challenge.  We always love seeing what you create!  Have an awesome weekend and thanks for stopping by!



The Sky’s the Limit!



It’s release day at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and I am so excited to share this new card from the Wild About You set! This image is cute, playful, and so much fun to colour!

Hop-closeupI coloured up the image with Copics to match the cute paper from American Crafts.  I then chose a sentiment to hand letter – I thought this image would be great for anyone starting a new adventure, but I have big plans to use it for my two little girls as well!  Quite frankly, it would be great on a birthday card too!  I think the sky’s the limit with this one! ;)

Make sure you check out all the cards that the Krafty Gals have on display for you today – we have tried to show off all of the new releases and they are good ones!  Make sure to leave a comment along the way for your chance to win a gift card to the shop.  And speaking of the shop – get in there and do some shopping! Kimmie has some great deals for you!

Have a great Sunday and thanks for stopping by!
