January Kraftin' Kimmie Release Hop

Well welcome back!  It’s Krafty RELEASE Day at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS!  And we’re celebrating with a KRAFTY HOP!  It's our first release for 2013 and it's a doozy!

Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of AMAZING new stamps from all our artists.  We’ve got something for everyone.  We've got TWO sweet new sets with the kiddos from Cheryl Alger........SWEET DREAMS and LOVE IS THE BEST MEDICINE! We also have a fun new set from Emilie Goulet called BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED! And of course we have an amazing new set of SIX awesome NERDS AND GEEKS from Annie Rodrigue that are simply stunning! OH and don’t forget the incredible new Trinket stamps for the backs of your cards, envelopes, gift bags and tags .... called HANDMADE TRINKETS by the lovely Nicole Aspinall!

You will get to see most of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our JANUARY Krafty Hop.  As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of these incredible stamps from the new release.  And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are NOW available!

And of course, as always, we have our Gimme Kimmies Kits available for those of you who ‘need it all’!  The stamps are grouped together by artist and are available at a discount, but only for a limited time.

**ALSO we are having a Krafty Guest Contest right NOW! So if you'd like to submit, please check out this POST HERE!

I've used one of Annie's new stamps today - called Bookworm!  This is SO me!  Although sometimes I read on my Kobo and sometimes on my Ipad.  I still love the smell and feel of a real book though.  I kept my card simple and just used a fishtail die cut and some black crystals for embellishment.  The papers are My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 3 - Oliver.  I'm a sucker for plaids!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll play along for your chance to become a guest designer in March!

I've used Computer Nerd and paired him up with some Doodlebug Boys Only papers.  I paper pieced his shirt and added some metal brads and a library clip for embellishments.  Have you ever had a card where everything kept going wrong?  This was that kind of card for me.  Regardless, I love this stamp!

Krafty Peeks - Housework doesn't Compute!

Welcome back!  Today at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps we are sharing a new set by the totally talented Emilie Goulet.  We've got something super fun and so unique for you! Let us introduce..... BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED!  Emilie has created a fun set of ROBOT images for your cards and scrapbook pages.  You're going to get a real kick out of these guys!

Below you will find a list of all the Krafty Girls who are sharing PEEKS with you today.  And as you're hoppin' around, be sure to leave a comment at each stop because someone will win a package of BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED! {All of this week's winners will be announced at the online party on Saturday night!}

I love these new little bots but this one pretty much begged me to ink it up (do your stamps talk to you?!  LOL!).  She reminded me so much of Rosie from the Jetsons that I had to google and colour her to match!  The papers are all MME and I added some fabulous mesh ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel.  As an aside, I was trying to remember the movie "Batteries Not Included" but kept confusing it with "Short Circuit".  Do you remember that one?  "Number 5 is alive!"  I loved that movie as a kid!  Anyway.... I digress!

All our new JANUARY 2013 stamps will be available on Saturday at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop! And don't miss the online PAR-TAY to celebrate! Come on back tomorrow because not only will we have a fantastic new challenge for you, but we'll be revealing the NEW stamps by Annie Rodrigue. Get ready to celebrate with......NERDS and GEEKS!

Krafty Peeks - Feel Better Soon!

Welcome back to our JANUARY Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks! Today we are excited to share TWO ADORABLE new sets by artist Cheryl Alger!  You'll recognize these characters from previous sets.....Lulu, Lexi and Lucas!  And they are just as cute as can be!  These new sets are.......SWEET DREAMS and LOVE IS THE BEST MEDICINE.

All the Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests listed below have lots of super sweet designs to show you, so be sure to hop over to each of them! And while you're there, be sure to leave a comment because we are giving away one of EACH of the new sets! You could WIN the new SWEET DREAMS or LOVE IS THE BEST MEDICINE stamp set.

I chose to use Lulu from the new Love is the Best Medicine set.  I've been seeing this very image in my house quite regularly the past couple of weeks.  It seems like there's lots of germs and sickness going around everywhere, so I know this set will get a lot of use from me!  I coloured Lulu to match my MME papers and added some SU ruffled ribbon and some matching embellishments.  I also pulled out my corner rounder to give one of the panels some visual interest.

Come on back tomorrow to check out MORE new stamps we have to show you, this time by artist Emilie Goulet.  And ALL the new stamps will be available on Saturday night at the KKStamps Shop.

Krafty Peeks - Handmade Trinkets

Well it's 2013 and Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is startin' things off with a BANG! We have tons of awesome new stamps for our first release of the year AND we're having our very first ONLINE RELEASE PARTY! It's happening this SATURDAY at our Facebook fan page....and you can get ALL the details HERE!  All the new stamps we're sharing over the next few days will be released on SATURDAY NIGHT!

We are kicking off the *New* JANUARY Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps previews today and first off, we’d like to introduce you to a beautiful new set of Trinkets!  We are very excited to share with you our GORGEOUS….HANDMADE TRINKETS!

There are SIX fantastic stamps featuring images from our artists that you can use for the backs of your cards, for gift cards, altered items and all those baked goods you plan on giving out!

Today we have awesome samples that the Krafty Girls have put together for you....and be sure to comment on each and every stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN the new HANDMADE TRINKETS set!!! {All of this week's winners will be announced at the online party on Saturday night!}

Gosh - I had such a hard time deciding which trinkets to use first.  But I decided to make a tag to attach to the Banana Loaf that I was going to make especially for this picture.  But unfortunately, ran out of time to make.  So just pretend the tag is attached to a beautiful loaf of banana bread, k?!  I coloured up Lulu and paired her with a shipping tag and some October Afternoon Modern Homemaker papers.  I sponged the edges of the papers and added some twine.

I also couldn't resist inking up artist Lulu as well.  I coloured her up, matted her with a petite scallop nestability and added her to the back of one of my cards.  Cute, no?!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'll see you back here tomorrow with another peek!
