Getting Cricky Ustream Event and Blog Hop

* If your looking for the "Altered Composition Book" Blog Hop Click HERE*


Welcome to the Getting Cricky Ustream Event and Blog Hop where we are showcasing three BRAND NEW sets of K Andrew Design's Stamp Art Sentiment Stamps!


All of the FUN will start RIGHT HERE at the Getting Cricky Ustream Channel at 9pm EST (6pm PST)... So please click on the link and Join the Getting Cricky Crowd (if you are joining us later, we invite you to watch the recorded version of the Ustream so that you don't miss out on ANY of the EXCITEMENT!)!!



If you're joining us after the Ustream, thank you!! Each of us on the Design Team, along with our Special Guest - Amanda from Amanda's Crafts and More, are so pleased to have you here with us!! What an exciting night of NEW RELEASES we've had!! So let's get HOPPING so we can each show you what we've created using one (or more) of Kristal's NEW stamp sets!!

If you've hopped along from Kristal'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!!)...

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, 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:



Tonight on the Ustream, you saw previews for THREE brand new sets!! Weren't they wonderful??? Here they are again if you missed them:

"Coffee & Tea For You & Me" set...
benefits Wayside House for Women



"Winged Things" set...
benefits E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation


"Sympathetic Sayings" set...
benefits Camp Good Days & Special Times


I'm so honored that Kristal asked me to be a guest designer for her blog hop this month.. So, for my project I created a set of fun and fabulous note cards... All the images are from the cricut cartridge "Groovy Times" , and I used Kristal's stamp set:






So here's some blog candy for you:
Splashtastic Summer!

For the giveaway just leave a comment on this post with a way that I can reach you if you win. I will pick a random winner on Monday the 22nd ..

Now you can hop on over to your next stop: Brenda

What a great job. I am one of Kristals fans and love her stamps. I have 7 sets...I also adore this cartridge and have a room and bathroom decorated in the 50's. Great for family reunions and friends to get together. I will have to make some of these cards .. Great job. Visit me and see what I have done with her stamps. Good luck to everyone.
