Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog Hop Extravaganza!!!!


Well, today is the big day...the day we have all been waiting for...today is the release of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and today, October 5th, is the day the Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps on-line store opens for business!

So....to celebrate we are having a Blog Hop Extravaganza...so if you just arrived here, then you need to go back to the beginning of the hop to Kraftin' Kimmie's Korner and visit all the DT's and special guest's blogs along the way! Make sure you leave comments as a random commenter will win the entire first release of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!! So the more you comment, the more chances you have to win!!!! Cool, eh!?

Now, there are a few things I need to tell you about Kim's fabulous stamps! They are unmounted and made from deeply etched rubber and she has two fabulous collections illustrated by two fabulous artists! Crissy Armstrong's collection is called Crissy's Cuties and that is exactly what they are, cutie patooties! Annie Rodrigue illustrates the Moonlight Whispers collection and they are whimsical, a wee bit "twisted" maybe even a titch scary and super cute all rolled into one...absolutely love 'em!!!! There is also a must-have sentiment set called Kimmie's Everyday Sentiments and it includes over 30 fun everyday phrases and this fab set was created by our very own, super Krafty Girl, Jeanne Streiff ....Phew, I think I got it all, smile!

So now on to my 4th preview card!!!! I made it following the fab sketch that they have this week over at the Sketch Saturday challenge blog! Meet, Maxwell! He is just too darn stinkin' cute...don't ya think!? He is from Crissy's Cuties Collection! I stamped him on ATS Copic paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured him with my Copics. I used Scenic Route paper that I had in my stash, some American Crafts ribbon, a few Prima flowers with BG Wassail brads and the Sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on!


So now you need to hop on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog and finish up the Blog Hop Extravaganza!

Now before I sign off, I just wanted to say what an absolutely fabulous time I had at Scrappin' great deals! Sheila threw the most fabulous Launch party for Kimmie and the turn out was so inspiring and wonderful to see! The place was packed and there was such a buzz of excitement in the air! I am just so happy for ya Kimmie!!!! My cheeks still hurt a bit from smiling and laughing so much! It was wonderful spending the day with my friends Dana and Nicky Manel, Kimmie, Crissy, Andrea, Nana Diana, Sheila and Vicki!!! I want to give a special shout out to Maria *wave*...it was soooo good to meet you in person...*mwah*!!!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment! You never know, you just may be the lucky one to win the entire new release!


Hugs,

I'm glad to hear that Kimmie's Launch Party was a total sucess and that she was surrounded by loads of friends and admirers.

Kimmie obviously has a great group of individuals on her DT Team, especially after going through almost all of the HOP.

Between Kimmie and her illustrators, and DT Group, and family and friends, well I can honestly say, "She's got it made in the shade!!!" Bravo!
