100 Fresh and Fun Handmade Cards GIVEAWAY Blog Hop!

Recently my 4th book, 100 Fresh and Fun Handmade Cards released and I am so proud of it!



This book is a take off of the last card book I did, 175 Fresh Card Ideas. 175 Fresh Card Ideas is a collection of fun, fast and simple card designs that you can create. In that book we had 40 cards with step-by-step instructions and galleries full of other card ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

In 100 Fresh and Fun Handmade Cards we took that concept a step further. In the new book we have 50 basic cards with step-by-step instructions and then we show you how to make those 50 basic cards interactive.

What do I mean?

The 1st card shows a great basic card that would be perfect for either a little boy for his birthday or a thank you card for a coach. 

The 2nd card is created with a penny slider, which allows the baseball to go flying across the card. 

For this set of cards you start off by creating an eclectic card for any occasion that features butterflies and a mix of beautiful papers.

The 2nd card shows how to take it a step further so when your recipient opens the card they are greeted by a bevy of butterflies flitting about.

The book is filled with gift card holders, shaker cards, spinner cards, slider cards, fun fold cards and so much more.

PLUS it features some amazing designers such as Nichol Magouirk, Lisa Dorsey, Rae Barthel, Kelly Goree, Kim Hughes, Summer Fullerton, Lily Jackson and Sarah Hodgkinson!

Today we are doing a little blog hop where each girl will share one of their projects in the book and have a copy of the book to giveaway. So hop along and leave a comment for these great gals for a chance to win one of 7 copies of my new book 100 Fresh and Fun Handmade Cards!

Your 1st stop is Nichol Magouirk's blog


If you get lost along the way, here's a list of all of the blogs for you. :)





Have a great one!

Oh my... could you have possibly got any better with your books? Kimber, you had me sold at the cover and your name behind it... then the teasers on your blog with the slider card and the butterfly spring card... then I did make my way to all the other blogs. I'm in heaven and can't wait to get this book! I can't say it will be front and center on my shelf because... it's going to be IN MY HANDS (glued probably, lol) and in front of me on my craft table as I create each and every entry! Wowsers! Thank you for this opportunity and this oh-so-awesome publication!
