**Canada Post Strike**

Ugh!! Unfortunately, Canada Post went out on a Nationwide strike this morning. As we ship all our packages through the regular postal service, your orders will be held until such time as they resume.

If you would like to ship your packages through a courier service (like UPS), please contact me directly at kraftinkimmiestamps@gmail.com to make arrangements, however there will be an additional cost for those services.

We hope that this strike comes to a swift conclusion.

Introducing...........EMILIE!!!

Welcome to Day ONE of our previews for the June Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! And not only are we excited to share them with you, today is a very special day!! We are introducing an amazing NEW ARTIST!!! Meet Emilie!!!



Here is a little bit about Emilie in her own words:

I'm currently living in Quebec city, but grew up in Montreal. I've been drawing for as long as I can remember. After high school, I decided to study 2D animation in CEGEP du Vieux-Montreal and graduated in 2002. Since then I've been drawing for fun as I re-oriented my career in a very unrelated field: I've been sailing on Canadian Coast Guard Ships as a navigation officer. During that time I made a calendar representing funny coast guard moments (all the money went to the children's wish foundation).

However, the calling of drawing got stronger over the years, and in September I decided to go back to school. I will be starting a degree in graphic design at the Universite Laval hoping one day to illustrate children's books.

For now, I'm looking forward to designing stamps for you, hoping you will have as much fun coloring them as I have drawing them!


So today we are SO thrilled to finally be able to show you the new Emilie designs that we have been playing with!!! These fun BEACHY stamps are perfect for your summer cards or scrapbook pages!! They will all be available on Sunday, June 12th at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Shop!!!


Here is the list of Krafty Girls who have Emilie creations to share with you today and be SURE to leave a comment at each and every stop, because one lucky commenter will receive the ENTIRE Emilie release!!! Get hoppin'!!

First of all, our random winner from last week's stitching challenge is...........EVELYN! Check out the gorgeous creation she made featuring the lovely Brigitte! Congratulations and be sure to email me with your shipping information!

Next, we'd like to say a fond farewell to Krafty Girl, Andrea! She has stepped down from her krafty position to spend more time with her family and we wish her nothing but the best!! It's been wonderful to have her fun sense of humour in this group and we'll miss her!! But we're sure she won't be far away!!! Hugs, Andrea!!

This week our hostess is the Dynamic Donna!!! She would like us to 'Cut It Out'!! And by that I mean.........paper piecing!!! What a fun way to incorporate patterned paper into your coloured images! Don't you love giving your images fancy dresses and things? It's almost like playing with paper dolls!!! We hope you'll join us for this fun challenge!

If you play along and use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp, you'll be entered in the random draw to win the Lilybelle stamp as featured on Donna's beautiful card!

OH and here's some news.....you'll start seeing Krafty Peeks with the new JUNE release this week!!! Keep checking this blog for all the details and you may even see some early peeks over on our Facebook fan page!!!
