Getting Cricky "Snow Much Fun" Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Snow Much Fun" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!
We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  In addition to Kristal and the Senior Design Team, we look forward to introducing you to the rest of our NEW Junior Design Team (be sure to visit Kristal's Blog to see ALL of our "new additions"!!)...  Each of us, along with our Special Guest - Patty from "Creative Diva", are so pleased to have you here with us!!  Throughout the hop, you'll see NEW ideas for creating cards and projects with Kristal's stamps sets!!

If you've hopped along from my super-fun-and-creative-DT-sister, Ildi, 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...

I recently learned how to make these SUPER FUN and FABULOUS snowflakes from my friend, Ashley (thank you, Ashley!!)...  Since I wanted it to be a FESTIVE decoration to hang in a window or around the house, I decided to use Three Bugs In A Rug "Stockings" paper from the Deck The Halls line...  I love the purple on the backside (and that you really can't see the stockings when the paper is cut).
Wouldn't these look AWESOME hanging in windows in all different sizes???
I just love how delicate they look (and no two will be exactly the same!!)...
I made this snowflake (and a few others too) while watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel...  Don't ya just love Christmas movies???
If you would like the full instructions on how to make these snowflakes, be sure to sign up for my email updates (enter and CONFIRM your email in the box at the top of this page) as I will work on a template/tutorial for how to make these in the coming weeks -- It's such a GREAT project for kids to make -- especially if it ever actually DOES snow (60 in December???  Who knew???)...

Now you can hop on over to your next stop: The Fabulous Scrapping Mamma -- DEB!! ......
