Introducing the Great Outdoors!

Hello there stamping friends!

Welcome to August!  Oh my!  I'm not ready to start school again.  I want to hang out, take some more adventures and relax!  Speaking of adventures, this month's Bloom Box is PACKED full of adventure!

This collection is great for the outdoor lovers in your life.  I've got some fun plans swirling around in my head for christmas too...and fall...oh my...This set will come in handy!  What do you think? Take a closer look at the four cards you will be able to recreate with the supplies in your Bloom Box kit!
The first card kit will include all the pre-cut papers and embellishments to create the card shown above. If you know me well, you probably know that I will have a hard time keeping with the original design. I'm just not good about copying designs! I diverge off the plan, almost always.  LOL
I love this second card because of the embellishments and the embossed layer.  That button...It's metal...and oh so delish.  This will be a fun card to make!
Now for my Oatmeal cookie cardstock lovers out there...This third card will be a hit!  Gotta love the background stamping and the woodgrain-look of the mount behind the bear.  I love how it spruces up a plain CAS card and just sends it off into a whole new realm!
And for our fourth and final card, the layering of the plaid moose is just too fun!   I like the addition of the tag and silk colored wood element.

So, what do YOU think of this month's kit?  Are you a monthly Bloom Box subscriber?  If you are, I know your kit is already on the way.  If you are not, make sure you join the fun!!!  The kit is available in my shop RIGHT HERE and for only a $24.95 monthly subscription price, you can receive a fresh, new, trendy kit each month.  Each kit contains four kitted card projects, the exclusive stamp set and an amazing full-color step-by-step instruction manual.  

Interested in checking out Richard's Bloom Box Video?  Here it is!  After watching, make sure to hop over to my site and order yours today!!!

I'll be back later in the month to share some NEW projects I've created with the kit.  I'll also be scouring the FSJ website for additonal inspiration to share with you.  

Remember, when you sign up for a Bloom Box kit with me, you'll not only receive the four kits in the Bloom Box, but I'll send you FOUR additional kitted card projects to recreate with me!  There's no time like NOW to join the Bloom Box club!

July Bloom Box: Dream BIG!

Hello Creative Friends,

Creative Blooms is back!  It's Kerry here.  Founding Coach #401.  I'll be sharing some sketches (I challenge YOU to play along) and color mixes to get you into the groove...I'm also going to be using this page to share projects using the monthly Bloom Box stamp sets from Fun Stampers Journey!

Now yes, the four card projects provided in EACH AND EVERY monthly Bloom Box kit are fabulous, but it is always nice to share additional ideas and projects too!  When you join the monthly Bloom Box subscription, you'll not only receive an exclusive premiere stamp set (available to YOU first, then will become available to the general public three months later), you'll receive four kitted projects ready for you to recreate.  You'll also receive a beautiful full color brochure with directions (with photo highlights), fun and innovative techniques highlighted by Richard himself...and a link to additional ideas too!

If that's not enough, when you sign up for a Bloom Box subscription through ME...Coach #401, you'll receive FOUR additional kitted projects featuring the monthly set.  YES!  I will send you four additional kits!   So let me give you a little taste of one of the four kitted projects I'll be providing to my Bloom Box subscribers THIS month:
I understand that it's difficult to own EVERY SINGLE ITEM IN OUR CATALOG so some of my kitted projects include fun backgrounds I've created using Fun Stampers Journey exclusive products. These products may not be something you have access to right now, but it's important to me that you be able to see and feel how they can be used and incorporated into your projects.  I try to provide these background papers to you as well as written tutorials (with step-out photos) on how to recreate them at a later time.  It's a little touchy-feely taste of the products in our MASSIVE catalog...and I know you'll love them just as much as I do!

Sooo...What are you waiting for?  Inky goodness right on your doorstep each and every month!  It can't get any better than that!  Or wait...maybe it can!

Changing things up...Stay tuned.

Hello there stamping friends,

I'll be changing things up on this blog.  Stay tuned.

New November Challenges are here!

November brings with it yummy, rich colors and I selected the following colors from the FSJ line that really get me into the Fall cardmaking spirit!  I hope these colors inspire you to create some yummy goodness in crafty form!  
Bringing back the more simple layouts allows for some fun stamping in the background.  I can't wait to see what projects are contributed to this design sketch!

There were four people that participated in the challenge last month.  Thank you to those who took the time to contribute to the challenge.  I appreciate your time and effort in playing along.

Congratulations to October's challenge winner:
Sandie, Please post a comment (your comment will not be posted on this page) that provides your snail mail address so I can send out your prizes.  :)
Please link your NOVEMBER entries below:  

***NOTE:  Due to low participation and blog traffic, I am considering discontinuing these challenges and am thinking a few new options for this blog.  In all honesty, It's disappointing to work hard on creating sketches, color schemes and contributing prizes to challenges that don't seem to be of interest to very many people.  Although I so appreciate those who participate in these challenges on a monthly basis, it makes me sad to know that there are only a few.  I definitely can use this time and money in other areas that will continue to encourage my love for crafting, sketching, designing and giving.   After some thought and reflection, I will be posting an update to share more information about the direction this blog will take.
