National Honey month and Kids Creative Week

September is National Honey month and Kids Creative Week is 22-28. The KK8 DT has created a card, layout or project that has kids and Winnie the Pooh it in because we all know Pooh loves his honey and what kid can resist that lovable huggable bear Winnie the pooh. This is a 2 day event so be sure to come back tomorrow to see more.

Shavon-Lead Designer

This is my now 11yr old. He reminds me so much of Winnie the Pooh he is so shy but sweet as can be. He still lets mommy hug and love up on him. I used punch art on the bees (oval,circle and word window punch)
This 12x5.5 inch album and has, hopefully enough pages to create for each month. I print and cut Pooh Bear, created a Sweet title with Pooh on the end. He has three jugs of Honey to eat from and Pooh is skipping towards his Honey meal. I added another little title to identify the little 9mo old girl, my great-granddaughter, Isabella.  


This layout has adorable EK Success layered stickers, along with Creative Memories Cricut cuts from Stork's Delivery and CM paper. I highlighted all the elements with a Gelly Roll sparkle pen and penciled and chalked the die cuts.


My project is a one page layout featuring my nine-year old son, his crazy personality and his loving dad. A really quick and simple page with a ton of, my son! Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you enjoy!

We challenge you to share your creations it can be a card,layout or altered item. It must have Winnie the Pooh and Kids in it. The challenge will start 9/29-10/5. Post your creation using the mrlinky.

Organization... it's time to do some..

Hey friends... 

Is your craft room up to par?  Is everything you want in there?  Well for me the answer is No..!!!  I don't have nearly enough space in my area and I'm trying to get some more.  A 2 room space would be nice for me... One for my wall unit and one for my crafting area... both with enough stack-able storage to hold all the bits and pieces of things I think I need to have a functioning craft room...   

What's your wish for a functioning craft room?  If you have it .. share the secret with us.. If you don't.. tell us what you would like to have... We are all ears and waiting to see how we can best used the spaces wie  have to create the space we want.. 

Happy organizing.. !!!

Breast Cancer ATC Swap and the Hostess

ATC's = Artist Trading Cards - A little piece of art in your pocket!  

Welcome to our post today... We have a wonderful interview with the hostess of the ATC Breast Cancer Awareness swap, Carol M. Gober.. 

Carol Michell Gober 

1. What got you into Crafting?   
  • A girlfriend of mine is an avid crafter and always told me I could make a lot of the stuff I was buying. In 2006 I made everything for my daughters birthday party. invitations, shrinky dink name tags, thank you cards and all of the party favors. From that moment I was hooked.  
2.  Tell me "what makes your day"?
  • Waking up with my health and strength and knowing that my kids and family are safe.
3.  Tell me a little about your family?
  • I'm a single mother to a 26 y.o. ds and a 15 y.o dd.
4.  What sparked your desire to do the ATC swap for breast cancer? 
  •   I enjoy doing ATCs, they are the easiest craft that you can do. It take a small amount of time and you can use scraps. There had not been a swap with ATCs and I thought doing one for breast cancer would spark people interest and get them involved. I also had never hosted a swap and felt this was something I could do. Next year for OCT. maybe we can do the ATCs and donate them to a women's care area for to be handed out to survivors.
Thank you Carol for taking a moment out of your busy day to share with us here at Kraftie Kre8ations.  We are proud to have you as a member of our dynamic crafting group.  

We will post the ATC's this month so come back and check out the beautiful creations.  
If you know someone who is battling this disease, survived this disease or succumb  to it, please add there name to the post so that we can remember and uplift them.  

Thanks for stopping by... Leave a comment, we love to hear from you.
