"Get Wild" Getting Cricky Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Get Wild" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!


We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  We'd like to invite you to visit each of our DT Sisters' Blogs (it's just half the crew this month -- you'll see the other half next month!!) and we will also be featuring some of our favorite kiddos as guest designers! This is one you won't want to miss!!!



Throughout the hop we'll be showing some .... Get Wild Projects!!  From animals to amazing projects from the DT's and their special crafters,  we hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!!  Sooooo, let's get hopping...



If you've hopped along fromOma Gloria'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, 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...



For my project, we are featuring the Southern Sayings Stamp Set and All about Animals:

My niece Briana & I welcome you to "Get Wild" Blog Hop! 


I am super excited about this hop because I had the great pleasure to create a crafty project no other than my beautiful little niece Briana. She is an amazing Little Crafter who loves to spend time in my craft room and create. When we think of the Wild, we think of animals and taking trips to the zoo. So for our project we have decorated some visors using our Create a Critter Cartridge and the K. Andrew Stamp Sets. Also, my niece did a video talking about her project so hope you guys like it. Her mom could see her having her blog some day.


Get Wild Visors

 Briana "Miss Lil Crafter" Age 8



 She cut out the grass to be placed on the visor. Then she used the crimper to add effect to the grass. 



Then, she cut alligators and a Giraffe using Create a Critter. She also used Everyday Paper Dolls to cut a person and used sticker embellishments for the clothing.


Now, she was ready to glue everything onto the visor.


 Now, she is ready to stamp away the sentiments using K. Andrew Stamps.


 Her final Product!




 Here is the visor that I made. I wanted mine to be a Monkey Theme. I will be sending this adorable visor to one of my DT Sisters from Getting Cricky to her little girl Katie as she loves Monkeys.



Here is a quick video of my niece Bri talking about her project:





Materials Used:
Foam Visors
Create a Critter Cartridge: Monkey, Giraffe, Alligator
Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge: Body
Googley Eyes
K. Andrew Southern Sayings and All about Animals Stamp Set
Paper Crimper

I would like to thank Kristal for having these little crafters be part of such a fun hop. My niece had so much fun doing this and I know she will continue to create more. Thanks for stopping by.


Now you can hop on over to your next stop: Jessie and Katie's Blog.
