Kraftin Kimmie August Release Hop & Shop

Today Kraftin Kimmie Stamps is releasing their new spoooooooooky August images!  As you’ve seen over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks,  Annie Rodrigue has created some super cute and creepy designs!  There are eight images in the complete set and one of them is a very special one created from Annie’s original painting, Little Batty Princess!

Steven Leary is back with Miles the Mouse and his ghoulfriend, Maisie, along with some new fun characters!   They are having a lot of trick or treating fun and you’ll get to check them all out in today’s August release day krafty hop!

If you want to start from the beginning, just head over to the Kraftin Kimmie Challenge Blog. As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of stamps from the new release!  And when you’re done hopping, be sure to head over to the Kraftin Kimmie Shop because ALL the new images are NOW available!  Also, as in past releases, each and every order placed this week will be entered into a draw.  One lucky customer will win a 5×7 print of Annie’s Batty Princess!!

Additionally, we’re doing something new this month.  For those of you who just HAVE to have all the new images, we’ve got the perfect thing for you!  It’s called the Gimme Kimmies Kit.  Instead of clicking on each image that you’d like, you only have to click once to pick up a Gimme Kimmies Kit.  There’s a kit of Annie’s images and one of Steven’s.  AND the kits are each discounted 20%!  What could be better???

Mum’s the Word!


Meet Mitzi the Mummy.  I love her.  She reminds me a bit of my little girl.  Not that she looks or dresses like a mummy…nor does she have red squirrely hair.  But one night as I stopped in her room to kiss her goodnight I noticed she was lying in her bed with her arms up in the air (like a mummy).  I asked what she was doing and she said it made her tired and helped her to go to sleep. (hee-hee-hee)  I’m not sure where she got this idea but whatever works….  🙂

KKMTWCUI colored Mitzi (just a bit) with markers, added some ground with pencils and then snipped off two flowers from some felt trim I picked up somewhere…long ago.  I drew in the tiny eyelashes and skinny flower stems then added the little brads in the flower centers.

Your next stop in the hop is with MISS KRAFTIN KIMMIE herself.  I hope you’ll stop by to tell her just how spooktacular she and her stamps are.  🙂

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
