Getting Cricky Link Up Love Party

Good Afternoon!! Today over at Getting Cricky With K Andrew there is alot of love going on!! A link up Love party!! These happen every 3rd Tuesday of the month. it is an opportunity for you to find new blogs, get your blog noticed and get some inspiration.

How it Works:

*Link Up Party runs from Tuesday 11/15 to Tuesday 11/22. Winners announced 12/20 at next Link Up Love party.
*Grab the Getting Cricky blinkie and post on your blog's sidebar
*Be a follower of Getting Cricky With K Andrew
*Create a new blog post that is titled Link Up Love Party with K Andrew. In your post, you must mention that the link up love party is a way to get to know each other and find new blog inspiration, mention Getting Cricky With K Andrew, with a link back Getting Cricky With K Andrew.
*Post your favorite project that you've done in your blog post THAT HAS TO DO WITH THANKS/BLESSINGS!! That could be a card, layout, treat holder or decoration.
*Copy and paste the link up code into your blog post so the Inlinkz will show up on your blog
*Spread the word so everyone can join in!
*You must visit, follow, and comment on the 5 people before you AND the 5 people after you in the Inlinkz. It would be fantastic if you would visit as many as you can--maybe everyone? If you are one of the first 5 then you will need to blog the ones before you and a few more after--as long as it's a minimum of 10 near you in the link up tool/gadget)
If you do not do the above your link will be deleted, because it's just not fair to those who work so hard linking up and showing love to the ones on the list. Kristal has two moderators who will be checking this out to keep it awesome and fun!

Here is my project for the Link Up Party!!

What I used:

George basic Shapes Cartridge
K Andrew Designs Art Stamps: Food For Thought
Darice Embossing Folder: Wood Grain
Black ink From Dollar Store

 I have always loved the look of paper piecing but don't have any programs for it, I have tried printing them out and hand cutting them but they always look messy. I decided to study the pictures on the web and created my own paper piecing using the Gypsy and George Basic Shapes Cartridge. This is the first one that I did and I just can't part with it, so I will be hanging this up in my craft room. My daughter is the one who picked out the sentiment for it, I personally thing she did a great job!!

So what are you waiting for create a thanks/blessings project and link up!!


  1. Very cute Kristan. You did a great job.

  2. aw, that bear is sooo cute!!! and I love your blog - it's super sweet! :)


  3. This is absolutely adorable, Kristan!! That bear is so stinkin cute!! I love it!! You did a fabulous job :D


  4. You did a great job and like you I love the look of paper piecing. I've been doing punch art, which to me looks very similiar. You had me falling in love with your card, the minute I saw the bear. I'm a major bear fan too. Your daughter did a good job too. Sometimes picking out the sentiment is the hardest part for me.
    If you'd like to see some of my punch art check out my blog at www.upordowntheyrebeautiful.blogspot.com . If you like what you see, send me a message and I can try to get you the dimensions so that you can cut the pieces out from george and basic shapes.
    God Bless
