Guest Design Post: Shopping Sisters with Fabulous Giveaway!!

HI everyone! I was asked by the super sweet and talented Amanda of Amanda's Crafts and More to be her Guest Designer this week for her Scrappy Challenge! We had to use a Stamp on a scrapbook layout. Here is the project I made for my Guest Design Post using my Cricut Imagine. I also used my newest stamp set which will be featured this upcoming week called Fashionable Friends. Official preorders will start Wednesday, but you can actually preorder this set NOW by clicking here. All preorders will receive FREE shipping for a limited time!

Shopping Sisters by K Andrew
Supplies: Better Together Cricut Imagine Cartridge (Provo Craft), Fashionable Friends Stamp Set (K Andrew Art Stamps), Cardstock: Trimcraft (Sweet Owl Collection: Brown Dots, Pink Stripe), Core-dinations (Fancy Pants Collection: Yellow embossed cardstock). Felt Flower, Bling (Creative Charms), Green Satin Ribbon (Offray).

As many of you know, I had a bit of problems with my Imagine...but after a few tries, I finally received this past week a working machine and I'm SO happy! I love working with the Imagine, because it just make projects so easy--to press print and cut! lol! I think I was the like the little engine that could with my Imagine...after 6 machines, I finally was able to get one that worked thanks to Chris over at Provocraft. He worked very hard to get me a machine that worked and was not damaged with shipping. I am very happy he was able to help me out, because being without my Imagine for a few months was downright depressing!

Okay GIVEAWAY time! eeeeeek to celebrate my newest stamp set releases this week...I'm giving away ONE stamp set called Fashionable Friends that I used in my layout. All you have to do is leave me a comment, and I'll choose a winner by Tuesday!!!
I wanted to let you guys know that i'm SOOOOO excited about my new adventure in stamp making! I was VERY hesitant to do this, as I was approached three different times about collaborating on stamp sets. However, after much prayer I realized this would be a great creative adventure for me, and a way to give back! EVERY single stamp set I sell, I will be donating $1 per stamp set to Charity. I hope you will take the time to hop over to my Products page and check out the fabulous charities I've chosen...each one funding atleast 85% to the people in need. Did you know that most charities give only 5%??? Yes! I researched each of my charities to ensure that the people in need were benefiting, and each of these charities give atleast 85% and have no paid employees.
CLICK here to preorder this stamp set--if you win it, I'll refund you or send you another stamp set of your choice!
