GinaK "KOOL" Summer Fun Preview!

KINDRED SPIRIT KIDS HAVE ARRIVED! When I first looked at all of Gina's 7 Kindred Kids images (yes, that is correct my friends, seven!) I knew I wanted to ink this one first. When our girls were little they would have play afternoons with their friends and run through the sprinkler over and over and over. I close my eyes and can still hear the giggles and remember the smiles. Please click on picture for detailed view. Images are stamped with StazOn and colored with chalks! Easy. I used a matchbook design for a special "KOOL" invite or to deliver a kool summer message. Many years ago, our girls also gave packages of Kool Aid at the end of the school year with their own special message, one which was, Have a Kool Summer! They thought they were so clever! I didn't have the heart to tell them that line had been used many times before! Can you see where this is going? KOOL matchbooks delivering a kool invite or kool message! These particular matchbooks measure 91/2" x 3" with score lines (using Scor-Pal) at 1" and 4 1/8" from the 1" score line. All three packs were stitched at the bottom fold to hold flap when closed. You can create all sizes of matchbooks depending on the item you want to utilize inside. I measured the package of Kool Aid and then determined my card stock size from there. Each Kool matchbook has its own clear flower and button bling. Check out the gems on the matchbooks! I wanted to highlight the Kindred Spirit Kids sentiment with GinaK's new adhesive rhinestones. I love this quick adhesive bling that has 99 pieces in it's package with 9 different color choices! This new bling, 7 new Kindred Spirit Kids, Kindred Spirit Kids sentiments, with four new stamps sets will be revealed at the GinaK release party on Friday, June 20, 7-10 CST. HERE is where you go for this Kool event! As I was putting the finishing touches on these matchbooks, I started to chuckle as I thought of fellow GinaK designer, Julie Koeber. If you follow her blog she posted THIS and THIS awhile back. Her daughter created a "cool" club and several of us (asked to be) are members! I in particular am the treasurer! Julie informed me that the President and VP had been filled as Julie and her daughter already occupy these positions! LOL. So in celebration of this "Kool" COOL club, I generated one of the inside sentiments to reflect this awesome club. Think Julie will fly the treasurer out for the meeting? Lol.
All in fun and with thankfulness for the ways in which our children and friends bless our lives. Check out these awesome talented GinaK designers for their KINDRED SPIRIT KIDS previews, Joanne, Linsey, Julie B. FRIENDSHIP BLOOMS Previews, Julie K., Kurtis, Emily, Michelle, Z., Michelle G. And Gina's blog for her special previews! Stop back tomorrow for a special preview using Melanie Muenchinger's new release set!
Until then,
HUGS,
