Kraftin Kimmie Release Day & Krafty Hop

Do YOU know what day it is???  It’s Krafty RELEASE Day at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!!!  And we’re celebrating with a KRAFTY HOP!!  There are SO many incredible new SPRINGY stamps to SEE this month, so let’s get started!    

Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of AMAZING new stamps from all our artists!  We’ve got something for everyone!!  Lulu is back from Cheryl Alger.....we know how much you love her!!  So we have a new set called SPRINGTIME LULU!  We also have TWO fantastic sets of adorable GARDEN GNOMES from Emilie Goulet called HANGIN’ WITH MY GNOMIES AND WHAT’S UP GNOMIE?!!!  And of course we have an amazing new set of six FLOWER GIRLS from Annie Rodrigue! 


You will get to see most of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our MARCH Krafty Hop!  If you want to start from the beginning, just head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge Blog!  As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of these incredible stamps from the new release!!  And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are NOW available! 

And of course, as always, we have our Gimme Kimmies Kits available for those of you who ‘need it all’!!  The stamps are grouped together by artist and are available at a discount, but only for a limited time!!


I've been enjoying creating things other then cards, so when I saw this decorative birdhouse at the dollar store I thought of Lulu. I painted the top of it with some bright pink craft paint and then added a scalloped edge using my Martha Stewart border punch. I covered the rest of the wood with some designer paper from K&Company, Berry Sweet.



I used spellbinders to create the loopy frame around the window and the flowers along the bottom is a sticker that I found at the $ store. Finished it off by adding the sentiment and a few butterflies that I punched from some really glittery paper. I'm very happy with the way it turned out, maybe a gift for someone with a new home.... :)

Thanks for stopping by and your next stop on the hop is the very talented Elaine.
