KKS Release Hop Day!



Woohoo! It's finally here!!

Today we are celebrating the release of ALL of our 

NEW August

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!!

ALL THREE new sets are NOW available in the Krafty Shop!
So let's have a big happy hop around the design team blogs and check them all out in action! Grab a nice hot beverage, sit back and relax while you hop around and enjoy all the amazing creations!!
First up is the amazing scene building set called


Next is this fun and versatile set called
And lastly is a wonderful set featuring our feathered friends
called YOU'RE A HOOT!


ALL the new sets are available now individually BUT if you HAVE to have it ALL, we also have our August Gimme Kimmies Kit which includes all THREE of the new sets together and at a discount! But only for a limited time and while supplies last!
Happy hoppin' and happy shoppin'!!

For this fun Autumn layout, I used the wagon, one of the pumpkins, & the girl to make as an accent!
I began by stamping the wagon, first. Then, I used a "mask" & stamped the girl. Lastly, I inked only one of the pumkins & stamped it in the wagon the same way I did the little girl. Using a "mask", allows you to build a scene by making the pumkin & the girl appear as though they are IN the wagon.

Hair-E09, E57, E35, E33
