Krafty Peeks - You're a Peach (or a pear)!

It's time for Kraftin' Kimmie's JULY 2013 RELEASE!!!!! We've been dying to share this month's images with you!! We've got SO many exciting things going on....so let's get to it!

We are kicking off the *New* JULY Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps previews today and we're SO excited to share these new stamps with you from artist, Nicole Aspinall!!! Today we’d like to introduce you to these sweet image sets ….Flowers Feed the Soul and You're a Peach!

We have lots of inspiration from the Krafty Girls, so hop around....and be sure to comment at each and every stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN BOTH of the new Fruit and Flowers sets!


I used the pears image from Nicole's new fruit set!  I have a weakness for pears, especially since I have a good friend with a pear tree in her backyard.  Come late August and early September, I'm usually busy making pear butter and pear jam.  This jar in my picture is actually the last jar of last year's batch and I decided to make a gift tag for it.  I love to give away jars of my jam and this will come in so handy!

I used some Doodlebug Fruit Stand papers and die cut the pear pattern into a tag.  I paper pieced my pears out of a couple different papers and shaded them with copics.  I added some burlap ribbon and some sueded ribbon as well for texture.
