Back to school...and a prize!

Hello there Journey friends!

Today I'm sharing a project collection that I'm extremely proud of.  I think this has to be one of my most favorite projects to date and I'll be displaying and using it in my classroom this year.

Some of you may not already know, but before joining Fun Stampers Journey as a Coach, I spent some time designing for other companies.  I have another stamping blog that chronicles my various stamping adventures too.  One of the companies I LOVED designing for was Heartfelt Creations. The whole team at Heartfelt Creations is friendly, generous and oh so amazing.  I loved creating beautiful cards and three dimensional projects that I could give to family and friends and also send to Heartfelt Creations for display in their trade show booths.  Although I'm no longer designing for them, I have an opportunity once a month to join my fellow Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni for a fun blog hop.  It gives me a chance to remain connected to the fabulous Heartfelt Creations community and to continue to enjoy their stamps and dies, papers and extras!

So this month, I fell in love with their new release called "Farmer's Market".  It's a collection of yummy fruit, berries, and vegetables all intricately and realistically hand-drawn by Linda Bontrager (I think).  This collection just spoke to my heart and reminded me of my grandma...It just SCREAMED "COLOR ME!"  I knew it was the perfect opportunity to mix my love of FSJ reinker coloring with beautifully realistic images.

Soo...Please join me (and my fellow Heartfelt Creations Alumni Designers) August 25 starting at 8:00 EST as we host August's BLOG HOP.  One lucky commenter will win a $25.00 gift certificate to the Heartfelt Creations store and perhaps you too will get bitten by the FSJ reinker bug!  :)

***As an added bonus, take a close look at my project that will be featured on this hop.  See if you can identify the FSJ products that were used.  Comment NO LATER THAN AUGUST 24 at Midnight EST.  I'll select one person that comes the closest to the actual total.  That person will win a fabulous inky prize from me.

So...are you ready???


PS...Prepare for picture overload on my blog hop post.  I just couldn't help it!  :) :) :)


  1. Hello Kerry! Firstly, a big thank you for your kind comments on my blog. Secondly, thank you for giving me the opportunity to visit you! This project looks absolutely gorgeous! I LOVE apple and pear stamps (despite not owning any), and this is gorgeous!! I tried to check out your blog hop photos, but unfortunately, the page didn't open for me, so maybe I am too early and too keen!! Let me know when I need to return, as I am looking forward to seeing your pics.

    1. Hee hee...Why, yes! My link to the additional pictures won't go live until August 25 at 8:00 AM. I've added the links here so they can be clicked indefinitely after that post goes live. So...Yahoo!!! I'm happy you enjoyed my projects and invite you to hop with us on Heartfelt Creations Blog Hop Wednesday. :) :)

    2. I will return and check them out then! :-) Thanks Kerry!

  2. Well, there were NO participants my challenge so I get to keep my own prize package.


Thank you for taking the time to comment about my creations! I appreciate the feedback and LOVE. A stamp in the hand is a song in the heart. Kerry
