Hey There Punkin!

Kraftin Kimmie new release august (hey there, punkin')Aug 14 fullI am beyond excited to share with you the new release from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!  This time of the year is always a little bitter sweet for me – then end of summer home with my two gals (my favourite time of the year), but heading back to a job that I really enjoy.  So it’s fun to think about the things that I am thankful for, even though it is only August!

OAug 14 closeupkay, so this first set is a beauty from artist Cheryl Grant featuring three sweet images with our fave kiddos…..Lexi, Lulu and Lucas, called HEY THERE, PUNKIN’!! I chose to work with Lexi, mostly because I absolutely love the look on her face!  It was an absolute delight to colour (and I have to tell you that I have coloured it up 3 times since I received this set).  I think it will be my “go-to” stamp not only for Thanksgiving projects, but thank-you cards for the fall season!

Now, all the Krafty Girls and Guests listed below have lots of super FUN designs to show you featuring these awesome new stamps from Cheryl, and you need to pop around to see this adorable set!  Be sure to leave a comment because we are giving away a gift card to spend at the shop!

Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you tomorrow!

Outdoor fun!

Well, the weather here in Calgary this summer has been super hot, but with two little gals, that is no excuse for being indoors!  So today’s Kraftin’ Kimmie challenge is a perfect way to relive some of our fun summer memories!


This week our hostess is Krafty Girl, TANGI and her challenge is OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp or any other stamp, with some sort of outdoor theme.  

I decided to work with Lulu from the Down on the Farm 2 set.  She is coloured up with Copics, and then I hand lettered a little sentiment with my trusty Sakura pen!  There are all sorts of fun details on this stamp, and while those little birdies are super cute, that little bunny hanging from the fence is my favourite!

So, here’s to fun outdoor activities!  I hope you have the chance to get outside this weekend, after you check out the krafty inspiration by the Krafty Girls and finish your challenge entry, of course! ;)  Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!


Furry friends


Happy Saturday crafty friends! Today, I get to share some inspiration for Kraftin’ Kimmie’s weekly challenge – this week, it’s all about furry friends!!

Furry-friends-closeupThis is the first time I have had the chance to colour up this cupcake cuties from the “A Koala-ty friend” set, but it won’t be the last! I love how versatile this image is…masculine or feminine, birthday or even thank-you card!  I paired it up with some ribbon from May Arts (I love this chevron ribbon), and some fun paper from Kaisercraft’s Butterfly Kisses collection!

So, I hope you will consider joining our challenge this week! The Krafty Girls have lots of fun inspiration for you, and we want to see what you come up with!  Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!


Christmas in July???!!!

Okay, I know the weather has been a bit unpredictable this year, but Christmas in July???!!!!  Really???!!!


Well, “weather” you are ready to think about Christmas yet or not, we have a fun challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps this week for you.   This week our hostess is STEPHANIE and her challenge is CHRISTMAS IN JULY! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp or any other stamp, using a holiday theme!

Christmas-challenge-closeupThis week, I decided to work with one of my favourite stamps from the winter release last year – from Lexi’s Winter Fun set.  I coloured up Lexi and her snowman pal with Copics to match some DCWV paper I had kicking around and then added a bit of May Arts eyelet ribbon for some texture.  I love how the angle of this stamp makes it so easy to highlight a sentiment!

Don’t forget that Kimmie has put a bunch of great product on sale this weekend – stamps and paper!  So head on over and stock up!

Thanks for stopping by today!
