"U R So Sweet" Blog Hop

Welcome to the "U R SO SWEET" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!





Getting Cricky Blog Hop


We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  We have an EXTRA SPECIAL hop for you this month -- All week long, the Design Team has been featuring many of Kristal's stamp sets in anticipation of the hop...  If you've missed out on any of the week, be sure to check out our previous posts for MORE THAN 100 CREATIVE IDEAS and PROJECTS using Kristal's stamps as well as giveaways, promotions, tips, and tutorials!!

If you've hopped along from Letillia - Diva of 5 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 using Coffee & Tea for You & Me

Now for my project - As mention in the video, I chose to use non-traditional Valentines colors.  I wanted to fit the card to the person who would be receiving it.


I made a shaped card using the Cricut Design Studio and the "Love Ya a Latte"  cartridge.  For more information on how I did it and the paper I used, please see the video.  It was so much fun making this card and I'm sure that the person receiving it will love it as well.






Kristal has just released some new stamps in her store and you really should check them out.  She has new sets for Valentines.  Plus, if you buy $25, get the Mini Heart Bonus Set for FREE!!
