Getting Cricky "Cabin Fever" Blog Hop

Whimsical Fairies and Fairy Tales Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the "Cabin Fever" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  We have an EXTRA SPECIAL hop for you this month -- All week long, the Design Team has been featuring many of Kristal's stamp sets as well as an array of Cricut Cartridges, SVG cuts, and more in anticipation of the hop...  If you've missed out on any of the week, be sure to check out our previous posts for MORE THAN 100 CREATIVE IDEAS and PROJECTS as well as giveaways, promotions, tips, and tutorials!!

If you've hopped along from Vero 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, I'm featuring the Pirate Party Image and Art Philosophy Cartridge.......
K Andrew Designs

Supplies Needed:
K Andrew Art Set, even a set with sentiments would work
Art Philosophy, again any cartridge with tags would work
2-3 sheets of 12x12 paper

I made a game of Go Fish or you could even take out some of the cards and play Memory

I found a tag I liked and set it to cut at 3".
I set it to cut fit to page and it cut 18 tags to one page.
You will need a total of 40 tags to make enough Go Fish cards.
I was able to turn the paper to get extra tags so I didn't have to use 3 pages.
Make sure all your paper is the same color so the game will be able to be played correctly!
There is the paper turned.
There is the stack of 40 tags! :)
You then stamp four tags with one image. You do this with ten sets.
Here they are turned around so you can't tell which is which!

Rules for the game:

And remember you can play memory as well. Enjoy!

Now you can hop on over to your next stop: Debbie!
