Simply Sunday Fall Treats

Welcome again Getting Cricky Fans! I can't believe its been two weeks since our last Simply Sunday. We had some FABULOUS  projects last time! I just love seeing all the creations you guys share and inspire us with. You ladies always leave me such nice comments on my projects and I love reading them every week it truly warms me :)

Now I asked you guys during our hop last weekend which project you liked best and overwhelmingly it was my layout so I decided to make a few more for you. This week our theme was fall treats but my mind was on layouts so I hope you aren't disappointed.

I made this layout while visiting a friend who owns a scrapbook store in Baraboo, Wisconsin she had this layout made with spring papers and I lifted it from her. Thanks Pam!

I get a lot of comments each week asking what papers I used on my projects so I'm going to try to be better at letting you know what I've used. All of the paper and embellishments on this lay out are from Imaginisce's Fall line from last year.  Of course my stamped sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Fall-o-ween stamp set. I love the mix and match possibilities that come with Kristal's sets!

With the purchase of every single Fall-o-ween stamp set $1 will be donated to the signature charity that Kristal has chosen. How can making a purchase get better than that?

Alright ladies I'm off to spend some time with my family. I hope you all have wonderful and blessed days!

A quick post today with a card that I made with a Little Scraps of Heaven Designs cut file that I just adore and K Andrew Design stamps. I used Kristal's Winter Wishes set for this card that I am sending off to my best friend who just moved off to North Carolina on me ;( I love the versatility of Kristal's stamps not to mention the quality!

All about Fall Blog Hop

Welcome to the Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  Each of us, along with our Special Guest - Heather from Heather's Crafty Blog Space, are so pleased to have you here with us!!  Along the way, you'll see NEW ideas for creating Fall & Halloween cards and MORE with Kristal's stamps sets!!

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

Its your lucky day because during the hop Kristal is having a 20% off sale but you have to enter the code 20becky during the checkout process :)

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 THREE newest stamps sets are LARGER sets -- perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...  For more details or to make one these sets YOURS, please click on the preview:

Fall-O-Ween benefits "Adopt a Classroom"

Winter Wishes benefits "Adopt a Classroom"

Scripture Sayings benefits "Good Samaritan Health Center"

For my projects, I'm featuring the all three of Kristal's new sets, yeah! First I'll start with Fall-o-ween which I have both a card and a layout for. The patterned paper that I used on both of these projects is from Bo-Bunny's Wooligan's line from last season. I think this is by far my favorite halloween paper line of all time.
Too cute to spook Bo-Bunny LO

A close up of my cute little munchin and those awesome K Andrew's stamps!

and now for my card using more of the Wooligan's line and that cute little Franky is from Peachy Keen Stamps. I used a Card Positioning System (CPS) sketch for my card.

Here are the cards that I came up with from Kristal's Winter Wishes set.

For this first card my image stamps is from Inkadinkadoo. I fell in love with these little chickie's years ago and I have one for every holiday. The ribbon on this card is  from Maya Rd and the paper is from one of last years Bo-Bunny lines.

Tweet Holidays card

For this second card I simply used my circle punches to make a fun snowman and a tore some white paper to make it look like snow drifts. My background paper is from Cosmo Cricket and again it is older.  A little ink a few embellishments and a fabulous K Andrew Designs stamp make for a super quick card.

And last but not least here is the creation I made with Kristal's Scripture Sayings set.

Now believe it or not this started out as a card gone wrong. I hate to throw anything away so I improvised and dug into my stash and found this cork board picture frame that I had tucked away and a can of spray paint to the rescue. I LOVE how this turned out!

Here are a few more close ups for you so you can see all the details.

A Smooth Sailing Simply Sunday

Hello again Getting Cricky Fans! Welcome to Squirly Girl Creations :) I hope you are all having the wonderful weekend weather that we are having here in Wisconsin. I'm not ready for all the Fall weather they are predicting for next week, I like the warmth of the sunshine and I really dislike what comes after Fall. Cold for months on end!

I'm just 2 followers away from 200. Woot, Woot! I would love it if you would become a follower of mine! Maybe I should do a give away when I reach 200 followers. What do you think?

This weekend is all about Halloween here at Getting Cricky. My favorite holiday to make cards for!! Today my card is simple but I really like how it turned out.

Of course I used my fabulous K Andrew Design stamps! For this particular card I had to think outside the box because I don't have Kristal's new Fall-o-ween set in my hot little hands yet, so I used her Splashtastic Summer set. I just love how versatile Kristal's stamps are if you think outside the box just a little :) I also used Creative Imaginations Luminarte Twinkling H2O's to paint my moon and those super cuts are straight from the silhouette store.

I hope you all enjoyed my card for today! Don't forget if you want some more K Andrew inspiration that you can join us at Getting Cricky  on the 3rd Friday of every month for our blog hop. Now we all love comments so go leave everyone some bloggy lovin' please :) Cheers to a good week!

Love, Love, Love.

This week is all about love. My brother is getting married this Saturday and I have been especially bubbly this week so I made a card to match my mood.

This card is made with a cut from the Silhouette store, its actually a full card that I only used part of. And the stamp is from K Andrew Designs Positive Thoughts stamp set. I love Kristal's stamps the quality is fabulous and I love the mix and match functionality of them. Not to mention that with every set sold a selected charity benefits. It can't get much better than that!

Don't for get to join me on Saturday for a special Birthday blog hop! There are LOTS of prizes to be had.
