Critter Crazy Challenges - Challenge #64 - July 2022

 Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the month of July 
(I can’t believe I’m saying that!).

This month I get the pleasure of being a
Guest Designer for July at
Critter Crazy Challenges! 

The theme for Challenge #64 is Anything Goes with a Critter.
That means that the star of your creation is a critter
- no humans please. 
If you’re like me you have lots of 
stamps if animals and critters. 
So I love this challenge because it gives 
me an excuse to use them! 

My card features a couple adorable critters from
A stamp set called  Carnival Critters 
from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! 

Mini Slimline cards are my new favorite
type of card to make.  The overall size of this 
card is 3/5" x 6".  I used some slimline dies from 
Taylored Expressions.  The background is
made from a new stencil from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
called Bouncy Balloons and the new hybrid ink
color "Flirty Flamingo" .  I also used two other stamp sets
from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - FUN-tastic Fair (snack booth)
and You've Been Framed (sentiment). 

Thanks so much for popping in to visit me today!
I hope that you will join our challenge this month,
You may be a challenge winner and get to be
a guest designer too!

June 2022 Skrappy Challenge - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

    Good morning krafty friends!

It's June, and that means it's time for a brand new
SKRAPPY CHALLENGE

with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

 The theme of course is ANYTHING BUT A CARD!

For this challenge you can make anything that strikes your fancy....except a card!
So design a new scrapbook page, bookmark, tag, altered item, planner page, art journal, ATC cards...whatever you like!

Just make sure to include some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps products and make sure it's a new creation!  As soon as we have at least five people playing along, we'll be giving away a $10 gift voucher to the krafty shop as the monthly prize!  

I love to travel! Most of my travels 
have been within the U.S.
but I have a dream to go LOTS more places!
  I thought it would be fun to make a smaller
scrapbook that's devoted to the different places
I've been (via car or airplane).  
The Life is a Journey! stamp set is perfect
for the front cover of my scrapbook. 


I'll periodically show you some of the pages
as I get them done.  It'll be fun to re-live my
trips while making this scrapbook. 

So now it's your turn! Show us your fab Skrappy creation. 
You have until Monday, July 4th to enter, and you can submit as many new creations as you like for more chances to WIN!  Also be sure to share your designs on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' Krafty Friends facebook page because we love to see your stuff!
