Welcome to the "Cabin Fever" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

HAPPY WEEKEND BLOGGIE FRIENDS! We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  We have an EXTRA SPECIAL hop for you this month -- All week long, the Design Team has been featuring many of Kristal's stamp sets as well as an array of Cricut Cartridges, SVG cuts, and more in anticipation of the hop...  If you've missed out on any of the week, be sure to check out our previous posts for MORE THAN 100 CREATIVE IDEAS and PROJECTS as well as giveaways, promotions, tips, and tutorials!!

If you've hopped along from the Marvelous Debbie at DD's Crafts then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Kristal's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!)...

By now you all know how much I love and adore my K. Andrew Design Stamps! I just wanted to remind you each of Kristal's stamp sets benefit charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to benefit the charity noted on the stamp set package. Kristal is donating to the following charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS  Foundation, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), Wayside House for Women, Camp Good Days & Special Times, Adopt a Classroom, and Autism Research Institute. Kristal will donate $1 for every stamp set sold, retail or wholesale to the charity noted; and over time believes this will add up to some wonderful miracles for these special people. So you can feel good that each time you purchase a K Andrew Designs art stamp set, someone around the country is receiving some good help!

K Andrew's stamps are all made and assembled here in the USA, which is very important to Kristal. This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained here in America.  You can learn even more about Kristal's stamps (and pick some up for yourself) by visiting her online store: K Andrew Designs: BUT WAIT! Check out my project before you head over there! And then go buy your stamps like crazy! I know after you see all of the wonderful Design Team projects you will want to buy the whole K Andrew Stamp line! They are a wee-wee bit addicting. Just like you pringles (once you pop, you can't stop) Once you buy and stamp you want more!

Kristal's stamp sets are perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...

Plus right now if you buy $25 in stamps you will get the Mini Heart Bonus Set for FREE!! SO CHECK THEM OUT!!!!

Okay so now onto my CABIN FEVER project....
For this project I used the Locker Talk Cricut cartridge and Food for thought stamp set.

So I started off with this pail. I picked it up from Hobby Lobby for 6.99 plus my wonderful coupon of 40% off! Gotta love that!

And this is what I turned that pail into...

I found the paper at Hobby Lobby. It was in a vaule pack and I had used a couple pages for something else and never knew what to do with this paper until now! I LOVE IT! It has all the little things to make a hamburger.

This is the lid a little closer up. I cut the hamburger from Locker Talk and cut it at about 4 1/2 inches.
The little banner says "Sandwich your day with fun" which I think is a great sentiment for what is inside the pail!

So I made this a fun little Cabin or Car Fever Reliever pail.

I used the top of the pail on the inside and made a magnetic tic tac toe board! The nice thing about the magnets is you know you can keep the pieces all together and they don't move.

Then I put some fun little things to play with and some snacks. The ideal things for a fun car ride or fun things to do when you are stuck inside!

So what do you think?? I hope you like it!

Okay friends. So here is the deal.. I had been sick for a bit and forgot to post the winners from the last hop... so here they are....

Your pail is a great idea. I like the tic tac toe game. This would really come in handy on those long trips or a rainy weekend camping. Thanks for sharing.

I like several of the magnets. I thinks it is between the monkeys, volleyball, softball, and the snowman. Cannot make up my mind. If I'm the lucky winner I leave it up to you. Thanks for intoducing me to this website.
