Christmas Tag in April? A Kraftin Kimmie Scrappy Challenge

Hello Everyone!

Today Marks another scrappy challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!!!
We challenge YOU to make Anything BUT a Card!!!

I made a quick Christmas tag using the stamp set Heavenly Holidays!

Every Christmas I am rushing to make tags for presents and this year I wanted to be more proactive. I am starting to make tags every second to third week up until Christmas that way I have a whole set that I just have to write names on the back of when wrapping presents last minute.

For those who would like details in participating in the Kraftin Kimmie Scrapy challenge all you need to do is: make anything you wanna….except a card! So that means bookmarks, gifts, scrapbook pages, journal art, planner pages, tags, boxes…pretty much anything that includes a krafty stamp!!

Just make sure to include a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp and make sure it’s a NEW creation! As soon as we have at least five people playing, we’ll be giving away a PRIZE!!! yep! One lucky krafter will WIN a $20 gift voucher to the krafty shop!

You have a whole month to play along until Monday, April 29th at midnight EST!
Also be sure to share your creations on the Krafty Friends facebook page because we LOVE to see your stuff!

A Bit Mix Media, A Bit Scrappy With Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Cuddles The Dog


Hello Krafty Friends,

This month has flown by so fast!

I have been truly blessed to be a guest designer for the month of March on the Kraftin Kimmie Team! I think they are a super awesome group of talented individuals, who have been inspiring me all month!

I am sharing my project for the Scrappy challenge over at the Kraftin Kimmie Friends facebook group. It was oodles of fun trying my hand at making a mix media canvas with a bit of the old scrapbooking flare I use to do before I started card making.

I knew the moment I first opened up my dream team package and saw the new Sparkling Sapphire ink that I was in love! The ink is this lovely deep blue shade that reminds me of my little fur ball Cobalt.

When my family and I were coming up with a name for our new puppy, My brother ended up thinking up the name Cobalt and it won against the literally hundreds of names I had jot down 13 years ago. He was named after the car Chevy Cobalt, but I secretly enjoyed the name because as a fan of many pigments I have always enjoyed this colour.

Cobalt just turned 13 in December and I really wanted to make a Canvas with the photos we took in the fall of him sitting in the leaves. I thought Cuddles the puppy stamp set would look cute and almost sketchy if I just simply stamped him in the corner with the Sparkling Sapphire ink, I then make sure to use the ink for the Cobalt lettering, and stamped the sentiment in it as well. I used the pawprint stencil with some embossing paste, and then sprayed some Heidi Swapp mist over top of it to make it a bit more teal/ darker blue then the paste originally was. Lastly I added some layering with some stickers and added some of the blue enamel dots from the rainbow Kraftin Kimmie Dots Collection to add a bit of embellishment.

I really love how this turned out and I think it will be a nice reminder of my love for him, he truly has a pawprint forever embedded on my heart.

A new Scrappy challenge starts March 27th, using a Kraftin Kimmie stamp all that is required is making a project that isn’t a card!

Lots of hugs,


Sparkling Sapphire

Lets get hopping with Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!


Hello Everyone,

I hope you have enjoyed the releases of the March Kraftin Kimmie stamps release. It has been an honour being a Krafty Guest this month!

All THREE new clear stamp sets are NOW available over at the Krafty Shop, along with our new Sparkling Sapphire inks, TWO new stencils and our new Springy Krafty Dots!

So let’s have a fun hop around the Krafty Team and Krafty Guests’ blogs and check everything out in action! Grab a nice hot (or cold) beverage, sit back and relax while you enjoy this kreative tour!

I decided that I needed to use Drama Llama one more time during this release! I coloured up the Llama with the saddle. I decided to add some green’s and blue’s to make a gender neutral card, as I get this request all the time from my family.

I loved this pattern paper from My Mind’s Eye as it just felt like the perfect paper pack to use with a Llama card.

I then heat embossed the No Problamma!  (my favourite sentiment of this release) and added a sprinkling of Kraftin kimmie Spring dots.

This turned out to be my favourite card of the release, I hope you like it as well!
If you liked anything from the Kraftin Kimmie release, good news! you can get it in the shop right now! Including the Gimme Kimmie Kits which contains everything Kraftin Kimmie released this month at a limited time discount in case you want it all!

Now head out on the blog hop to check out these lovely goodies in action and then head on over to the krafty shop to scoop them up!

Happy hoppin’ and happy shoppin’!

I really wanted to make a night sky using our Sparkling Sapphire ink, I then added sparkly embossing paste through the new Starburst stencil to add some shine, I then thought it would be super adorable that the fairy godmother stamp is floating along the dreamy clouds, I used purple pansy ink behind the fairy godmother to make her look like she is glowing, and then added a sprinkling of our Kraftin Kimmie new spring enamel dots.

Lots of hugs,

Fawn’d of you, Kraftin Kimmie Release Day 2


Hello Everyone,

Welcome back to Day TWO of our March Krafty Peeks at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

Fawn'd of you banner

Today we are sharing a wonderful spring stamp set from artist Cheryl Grant!
It’s called FAWN’D OF YOU!

This sweet set features a lovely lady who’s getting ready for the nice weather to begin and the flowers to start growing!
She has two furry friends…a bunny and a fawn….plus four coordinating sentiments!

My project today features the Girl and her friend fawn. I matched her up to some pattern paper that I thought worked well with the vine stencil and Sapphire ink. I then heat embossed the sentiment onto some pattern paper clouds for a sweet spring look.

We have some more exciting announcements to check out below!

Don’t forget about the MARCH Ink of the Month!
The colour this month is LOVELY LAGOON and you can scoop up the large ink pad, the mini cube and the ink refill
for 15% OFF until March 31st!

I think it would be a great pair to make some ink blended backgrounds with our March ink release Sparkling Sapphire

Llama Drama Kraftin Kimmie Release Day 1


Hello Everyone!

All the Krafty FUN is about to begin as we kick off the March 2019 release for
Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

This is Day ONE of our Krafty Peeks and we are over the moon excited to share everything with you! We’ve got new stamps, stencils, INK and enamel dots!

llama drama wm sheet

The first stamp set we are previewing for you is
called LLAMA DRAMA and is by our fabulous
artist, Melissa Baker-Nguyen!

I love that you can use the full llama’s, portrait llama’s, or mix and match the heads to the bodies! Of course we have lot of fun accessory stamps to add unique personalities to each llama!

I decided it would be fun to use all the llama heads in a polaroid (a llama family!) and the hilarious Save the drama for your llama sentiment.

As you hop around the Krafty Team’s blogs today you will see the Llama Drama stamp set in action in combination with our awesome new March Kraftin’ Kimmie products!

Sparkling Sapphire

You will spot our newest addition to the Krafty Kolours Hybrid Ink line! It’s a stunning new dark royal blue called
As always it will be available in full sized ink pads, mini cubes and ink refills!

I am excited to use this colour with other blues, greens, and teals to make some ocean backgrounds!


We’ve got TWO brand new Krafty Stencils for this month’s release to coordinate with our stamp sets!
They are called LEAVES & VINES and STARBURST!

Starbust was so much fun to play with! I loved squishing Versamark ink through the stencil to make a silver heat emboss starry background!

Springy Enamel Dots

And of course, we are adding some lovely new Krafty Dots!
These ones are called SPRINGY DOTS!

I was inspired by the springy dots for most of my projects for the release as I thought it would be fun to limit my colour palette!

You’ll get to see all of our brand new goodies in action over the next few days of March Krafty Peeks and everything will be released at our LIVE Online Release Party in the Krafty Friends facebook group on Saturday, March 16th at 1pm EST!

For now, hop around and check out some incredible designs from our Krafty Team!!
