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 Oma Gloria 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...

Hi everyone! I'm super excited to begin my first Blog Hop with my Design Team for Getting Cricky. I have been looking forward for this day to come. I also want to thank everyone for stopping by my blog today. This is such a great theme for a hop. I have been crafting for maybe 2 years now. Over time, I feel I have grown as a crafter. I started off with scrapbooking first, then slowly with cards next, and eventually became able to do projects such as party favors, altered projects, and more. I don't have one particular style, I believe I have more which means I love creating things that are easy and simple, but also started to love making things that are 3 Dimensional. Overall, I hope you love what I created today for this fun hop.
Before I showcase my project, let me tell you a little about it. This Sunday, my husband and I will be celebrating our 6th year Wedding Anniversary. We have been a couple for 15 years, I guess you would say we were High School Sweethearts. Well, this year my husband kept telling me he didn't want me to buy him anything, just spending the day with me was all he wanted. So I decided to make him a special gift for his office. Therefore, I decided to put together a nice picture frame of our wedding, especially since he doesn't have one in his office. I really hope he likes it. I tried not to make it to girly. LOL
"Dreams do Come True"
Wedding Date: April 22, 2006
I purchased a shadow box from Michaels and measured paper to the side of the cardboard of the frame box. For example, the first layer is some beautiful Celebration Paper from Stampin Up.It is measured at 8 x9.5. Then, for the light blue card stock, it is measured at 6 x 8 I believe. I wanted the colors to match up with what our wedding colors were.
Then, I used some Blue Twine to hold the tag with the beautiful sentiment "Dreams do come true."
I then placed 3 Light Blue Prima flowers at the bottom of the frame. Then, I added a clear adhesive sentiment that says, "I love you." On the front of the frame, I placed this beautiful border from Queen & Company.
I truly love how this frame turned out. I might have to create more like these for my home.
Materials I used:
Stampin Up Celebration Paper
Blue Card Stock
Sew & Easy:Blue Twine
Queen & Company: Blue Border
