Welcome to the "U R SO SWEET" 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 -- All week long, the Design Team has been featuring many of Kristal's stamp sets in anticipation of the hop... If you've missed out on any of the week, be sure to check out our previous posts for MORE THAN 100 CREATIVE IDEAS and PROJECTS using Kristal's stamps as well as giveaways, promotions, tips, and tutorials!!

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:
For my project, I'm featuring the Owly Hoo sentiments and you will also notice I could not resist using the new It's Valentines set also. For more details or to make this set YOURS, please click on the preview:
For those of you that are curious. I spray painted the box with black first. I either use black or a light brown on all of them before I cover them with paper. Buy the kind of spray paint that is made to paint on plastic other wise it will peel off the edges and look yucky! The flower is from the Flower Shoppe project cartridge. Love that one!
Here is a close up of the layered pile-o-hearts. I stamped them, colored with copics, cut them out and popped them up. I don't normally like tedious cutting out of things, I mean duh! isn't that what the Cricut is for, but it was worth the time, these are so cute!
Here is a close up of the note cards that I made with the scraps from the paper I covered the box with and stamped with the It's Valentine sentiment. I hope you like this and feel inspired. Don't for get to return Sunday to see who wins the free K. Andrew stamp sets. There will be 5 winners!!!
