 Over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, we have shared lots of amazing creations featuring  new stamp sets from all of our artists for our March release!  We know these new stamps will inspire you to make your own fabulous creations! 



We’ve got an elegant new sentiment set by Becky called RAIN OR SHINE!!



There's a supah cute new kids set from Cheryl called SPRINGTIME FRIENDS!



And of course, we are thrilled to share two new strong girl sets from Annie called....ELISHA THE MAGE and KIERSTEN THE KNIGHT!



  Lastly we are thrilled have another incredibly fun set from Emilie Goulet  called, YOUNG AT HEART!


For my card tonight, I just had to use another sentiment from the Rain or Shine set. I had so much fun playing with some of my MFT Die-namics, and this super cute paper pad from Simple Stories called Enchanted. I added my rainbow and clouds, but also embellished with some pink twine from May Arts, brads from Michael's, and a butterfly shaped metal clip.

You will get to see ALL of the new images today as you sit back and enjoy our MARCH Krafty Hop!

One more exciting thing....the COFFEE CARD KITS!!  Some of you were lucky enough to scoop up one of the limited edition card kits that were available a couple of weeks ago, but they sold out very quickly!  Well, since there has been so much interest in them,  I am opening it up to preorders again TODAY! There will be a handful that are ready to go right now and the rest will be PREORDERS and I estimate them to be ready in about a week or so.  But again, there are only a limited number so grab one while you can!  You will also see some creations along the hop today featuring the Limited Edition I {HEART} COFFEE! stamp set which is in the kit!  Yay!

Hiya krafty friends!!!  Welcome to Day ONE of the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps   MARCH 2015 previews!!!  It's going to be another amazing month with so many fabulous designs!  I couldn't be more excited to share them all with you!


After just celebrating National Women's Day and Gender Equality this past weekend, it's only fitting that our first day of previews features two exceptionally strong women characters from artist, Annie Rodrigue!!  Today the Krafty Girls and guests are thrilled to share with you two incredible new stamp sets with you called KIERSTEN THE KNIGHT and ELISHA THE MAGE!!!   (They also happen to be named after two little cutie pies.....Krafty Girl, Tracy's daughters.....I hope they are surprised!!).  You'll find so many amazing creations on today's hop featuring both new images and sentiments from these fabulous new sets! 



For my card today, I used the super amazing Elisha the Mage. I just LOVE how gorgeous these images are, and they are so up my alley....they speak to the nerd in me, what can I say. I paired her with some yummy MME paper, and also used this month's Kraftin' Kimmie sketch, but I changed it a bit to adjust for my image. I cut out my circle panel with the Decorative Doily Die-namics. My cardstock is Berrylicious and Steel Grey from MFT, Banana Split from Bazzill, and White from Michaels. To finish my card off, I used spiral clips, brads, and some Berrylicious grosgrain.




Below you will find all the Krafty Girls and Guests who have goodies to show you today and while you're visiting their blogs, be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky stamper is going to WIN some $$ to spend at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!!  Woohoo!!!
