Cabin Fever Blog Hop!

Welcome to the "Cabin Fever" 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 as well as an array of Cricut Cartridges, SVG cuts, and more 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 as well as giveaways, promotions, tips, and tutorials!!

If you've hopped along from Jennie 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 Crafty Friends Stamp Set
;K Andrew Designs

This is a little photo book that I bought at AC Moore for $1.00 and thought it would be cute for the little ones to paste pictures of their family pet in, or write about them. I covered the front cover with lavender cardstock, cut the title from Kate's ABC's at 2 1/4 inches, the kittens are also from the same cartridge cut at 1 1/2 and 2 inches.  Here are a few inside pages.

I think I will surprise my great niece, Lexi with this and see what she can make - she loves all animals, ducks, chickens, cats, dogs, hummingbirds...I can't wait to see what she puts in it.

 As a special bonus, if you purchase $25 or more, you get the Merci Sentiment and frame bonus Set for FREE!!

You really personalized the cover of this photo book! She'll love it. I'm a new follower. Thanks for the chance to win. If I were picked, I would like the Positive Thoughts set as I know it has a lot of encouraging sentiments on it that I can put into cards to brighten others' day.
