Getting Cricky Blog Hop! - Show Your Style

Welcome to the "Show Your Style" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  We have an EXTRA SPECIAL hop for you this month -- For the past week we've been celebrating the BRAND NEW additions to our Getting Cricky team by showcasing some of our FAVORITE K Andrew Designs Stamp Art Sets...  And NOW, we'd like for you to get to know more about us and our very special Guest Designer (and former Getting Cricky Design Team Sister), Larelyn from Handmade from My Heart!!  Throughout the hop you'll be introduced to each of the Design Team Members who will each share a little about their styles and preferences for stamping!!  We hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way, so let's get hopping... If you've hopped along from Diana 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 Positive Thoughts Stamp Set. For more details or to make this set YOURS, please click on the preview:

For my project, I created a bright and cheerful photo frame featuring very favorite stamp set, Positive Thoughts stamp set. 

 All of the papers used on this project were printed from the Cricut Imagine Kate's Kitchen cartridge...

...and the accent borders were created using the Fiskars Apron Lace Border Punch.

The dress form and dress were cut from the Formal Occasion cartridge at 7.5" and 5.5" respectively...

...the hat was cut from the Kate's ABC's cartridge at 2"...

...and the sentiment frame was cut from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge at 1.8".

The frame is accented with Recollections paper flowers and pearl accents. All cuts have been popped up on foam for added dimension. 

Products used:
Cricut cartridges: Kate's Kitchen, Formal Occasion, Kate's ABC's and Once Upon a Princess
Fiskars Apron Lace Border Punch
K Andrew's Positive Thoughts Stamp Set
Paper: Recollections cardstock
