KRAFTY SKRAPPY CHALLENGE - ANYTHING BUT A CARD!

Welcome back to another month of Skrappy Fun at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  We challenge YOU to make Anything BUT a Card!
For this challenge you can make anything you wanna....except a card! So that means bookmarks, gifts, scrapbook pages, journal art, planner pages, tags, boxes...pretty much anything that includes a krafty stamp!!
You have all month long to play AND you can enter as many times as you like! Just make sure to include a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and make sure it's a NEW creation! As soon as we have at least five entries, we'll be giving away a PRIZE! One lucky krafter will WIN a $20 gift voucher to the krafty shop!  You have until Tuesday, March 27th at midnight EST!
Also be sure to share your creations on the Krafty Friends Facebook page because we LOVE to see your stuff!
  

Wow, a month gone already and March just around the corner!!  Time sure flies!  For my Krafty Skrappy Challenge I decided to make Valentine treat bags.  I've used the stamp sets Beary Big Hugs and Love Story Sentiment.
I didn't have a treat bag die that was big enough for what I wanted, so I decided to make my own template.  Turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself....lol.  I did use the YNS Rectangle die and small tag die.  The window in the treat bag was cut out using the Spellbinder small heart die.  I added some chocolate hearts and tissue paper inside and closed it up with twine.  These were fun and super easy to put together once I figured out the size and made the template.
Thanks for coming by and I hope you pull out those KKS stamps and play along with us this month!
