Getting Cricky Summertime Hop

Welcome to the "Summertime" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

Getting Cricky Blog Hop

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!! We'd like to invite you to visit each of our DT Sisters' Blogs (it's just half the crew this month -- you'll see the other half next month!!) and our very special Guest Designer, Melissa from Needful Things!!

Throughout the hop we'll be showing what we love about.... SUMMERTIME!! From parties and celebrations to campfires and s'mores, we hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!! Sooooo, let's get hopping...

If you've hopped along from Christel  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...

For my project, I'm featuring the set Splashtastic Summer.

Summertime for me is Sunshine and vacation.  I love being able to go on vacation and just do nothing.

I made this magnetic photoboard.  It is a piece of 5x7 metal sheeting. I covered it in paper and then added my mats and such.  I glittered it like crazy. It is going to be a gift for my sister in law for letting us stay with her while in Cali.  She is taking us to the beach and arranged to take us to Disney.  She is super awesome, and I will make a lot of stuff for her before we go.
I also plan on making a little sun magnet I just ran out of time :(

We'd also like to share THREE BRAND NEW Stamp Art Sets available for preorder. If you want to be one of the FIRST to own these SUPER-CUTE sets, you'll definitely want to order TODAY.  There is a special offer too. Use the code newship to get free shipping on your order!
