Getting Cricky "My Favorite Things" Blog Hop

Welcome to the Getting Cricky "Favorite Things" Blog Hop 
Each of us on the Design Team, along with some very special guests and friends, are so pleased to have you here with us!!  We have a special surprise for you at the end of the hop, so be sure to visit each blog along the way...  You'll end up at Kristal's blog where you'll get to JOIN the FUN!!  So let's get HOPPING to show you some of our "Favorite Things" about Kristal's stamps!!

If you've hopped along from Jessie's blog 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 Lisa's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!).

For my project, I wanted to share the cover page of my Project Life album! I recently began this project and have been having so much fun with it. I love the concept of scrapping everyday photos and recording our everyday lives.

I wanted the cover page of my album to reflect my crafting style and I wanted to include some of my favorite die cuts and embellishments...

Of course I had to include this sentiment from K. Andrew's Positive Thoughts Stamp Set. This is one of my all time favorite sentiments and it worked so perfectly on this project!

Now you can hop on over to your next stop: Christel's blog!

Didja know?
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, 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:

I'm not into Project Life but yours is beautiful. You're right. The sentiment works perfectly for this album. I think it would also make a great card. Pinning this one!

Oh my gosh, I LOVE this. AND I love the fact that you used your Imagine for the papers. I'm going to start a Project Life book and I'm going to use my Imagine too. Not only does it get me to use my Imagine machine more, but it also guarantees I'll never run out of a particular patterned paper!! I do have one question, though. What did you use for the little camera on the 2012 card that has the bird on it? Is that a stamp or did you print that off some Imagine cartridge? It's so cute!

I just started a Project Life type Project. I just turned 31 and i'm documenting my "31st year". I'm using the Simple Stories Snap line but you have definetly inspired me to 1. use my imagine; 2. go through my stash and see what i can use. Can't wait to see more videos and layouts.--Jennifer
