Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

My sneak peek....  :)


We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  Each of us, along with our Special Guest - Heather from Heather's Crafty Blog Space, are so pleased to have you here with us!!  Along the way, you'll see NEW ideas for creating Fall & Halloween cards and MORE with Kristal's stamps sets!!

If you've hopped along from Becka 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 THREE newest stamps sets are LARGER sets -- perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...  For more details or to make one these sets YOURS, please click on the preview:

Fall-O-Ween benefits "Adopt a Classroom"
Winter Wishes benefits "Adopt a Classroom"
Scripture Sayings benefits "Good Samaritan Health Center"

For my project, I'm featuring the Fall-O-Ween set!!
I created 3 Pumpkin Luminaries with a Pumpkin Patch Sign wishing everyone a "Happy Fall"!!
I just love the effect these have when the lights are off!! :)
And back to the lights on.....
Aren't those just the cutest???  But, hey!!  Look what else I created with this set this week....

Amanda said...

And sorry I forgot the answer to why I love fall is that I love the crisp air and the colors that the leaves change on the trees! My absolute favorite season of them all!

Dee Burns said...

I am a new follower and love your creations. I don't just have one part that is my favorite.. The cooler weather, Rich colors, bonfires, Halloween, and all the great fun that you can have raking leaves and jumping in them combine to make up my favorite season of the year.

Squirlygirl said...

Amy you always amaze me with your paper creations! I love you pumpkin luminaries! I've seen the paper strip pumpkins before but never with the detachable tops! LOVE IT! My favorite part of fall is being able to wear all my comfy cozy sweaters and sweatshirts and not have people look at me like I'm crazy, hehehe. And the annual trip to the pumpkin farm is a favorite too.
~Hugs~

Sunshine HoneyBee said...

Like your pumpkins & all your creations. I've been a follower for awhile. My fav part of Autumn/Fall is the cooler temps and my hubby & I go bike riding on our tandem bike (was too hot here in Central TX with 71 days of 100+ temps to ride during the Summer). The leaves change colors here. Another thing would be the grass goes dormant and do not have to mow. Ok, that's more than 1 reason I like Autumn/Fall.

I love fall because of the crunching beneath my shoes when going for a walk on a nice crisp evening.

Oh my goodness - these are all adorable! I love explosion boxes but this one is truly amazing with all those vivid fall colors! And those pumpkin luminaries - I want to try that :) My favorite part of fall is the colors - everybody probably says that but what I love the most about the colors is when it is raining and gray and drizzly, the colors really pop! Thanks so much for sharing all these great projects and for the instructions on the explosion box too. I am a longtime follower of your sweet blog.
