Peachy Keen October Sneak PEEK release WEEK

Hi Everyone of our Peachy Fans!!

It is release week here at Peachy Headquaters!  The full release is coming to you on Friday, October 5th!
OH MY What work our designers do!!  Here's one of the cards that I made... I will share another tomorrow and the next day... I used peachy picks and a piece of kraft for the turkey.  I used the FREE SVG that comes via email if you are a Stamp Club Member.  Outside it says Cheers... inside it says... I'll eat to that! Both sentiments are in this set PKSC-10 October which is coming to you live on the 5th!  You don't want to miss it!  Thanks for taking the time!  Have a great week!  BIG HUGS and lots of Peachy Love!  Kathy

Peachy Keen Stamps September Sneak Peek

Happy Fall!  Here is my sneak peek for the newest release that will be coming to you live on September 5th.  I'm so ready for Fall weather... it has been such a hot and dry summer!  I'm totally over it!

For this card I used my September Peachy Picks and PKSC-09 September 2012.  The faces are all interchangeable and so much fun to play with.  I used my copics to color the scarecrow on Copic White Paper and I used the Orange cardstock that is in this month's Peachy Picks for the pumpkins.I mounted the scarecrow on a popsicle stick to save on my SU! dimensionals!

Don't miss the release party on the PK connection!  That is a live and super fun party on Wednesday evening 6:00 pm CDT...  There are Prizes, Trivia and MORE!  You can chat with many of the designers from our team...  I'll be there... WILL YOU?

If you haven't already... take advantage of our sale!  We've never EVER had one like it before!  A whopping 31% off!  It has been our pleasure serving our customers for NINE years on September 1st!  Next year will be our 10th Anniversary!  Time FLIES when your having fun... or is it just cause I'm getting older?  LOL!

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day!

Peachy Keen Stamps AUGUSTCHALLENGE#2

Sorry I had this all done DAYS Ago.. went in to blogger to make a few minor changes and ended up deleting my original post.  Here is what Lorie Souther wrote up on the Peachy Keen Connection site:

Welcome to the second Challenge for our August stamp release!  Your hostess for this challenge is the Peachy Queen herself, Kathy Jakopovich,  and Kathy's challenge for us is a sketch challenge.  Woohoo!  We LOVE sketches!!
You can make anything you'd like for this challenge, as long as it follows Kathy's sketch.  Feel free to flip it or change it up to suit your creative needs, as long as the basic sketch and elements are included in some way.  The only other requirement is that you use the Peachy Keen Stamps of your choice.  ONLY entries using PKS will be considered for the prize.  

In order to have all the entries in one place, please upload your photo here on the PK Connection and when uploading, tag your photos with the key words AUGUSTCHALLENGE#2 (all caps and NO spaces). That's all you need to do!  All photos with that tag will be grouped together in one place so that we may easily count the entries.  We'll take it from there and choose a random winner from all those entered!  Here's Kathy's sample card for your inspiration.

For playing along with this challenge, you will be entered to win the following newly released PK-125 Recess Jump Rope Girl that Kathy used to create her adorable card.  It's such a CUTE set!

Entries for both challenges will be combined for the grand prize drawing of a $50 Gift Certificate to Peachy Keen Stamps, therefore, entering BOTH challenges will double your chances of winning the BIG PRIZE!
Challenges will remain open until Wednesday August 8th  at 11:59 p.m. CST and the winners will be announced and featured here on the PK Connection on Thursday!
Good luck to everyone!  We're really looking forward to seeing what you create with your Peachy Keen Stamps!  Happy Stamping!!

That's What Friends Are For ! Blog Hop

Well Good Mornin' Peachies!  

Long time no see!!  

Firstly, I would like to thank our Lorie Souther for organizing our first Alumni Hop!  I thought I had it bad because my project didn't get finished (that's another story).  Lorie literally had to travel in her car (at night) to find internet because a storm had knocked out their server at home! 

Secondly, thanks to all of our Peachy Keen Designers Alumni who have graciously kept us as friends and have continued to support Peachy Keen Stamps in their blog posts!

Thirdly, my project... I can show you what it looked like tonight.. before the air compressor fell on my foot!  I had to leave it sit right where it was and decided to go to E R for an x ray.  NOT broken but VERY sore, pretty colors and swollen like nobody's business!  Dave slept in the chair while waiting for the doctor to return with the after care instructions.

Since the project is about friends, I used the gnomes that I colored at Klatt's Kamp.  Kim Score invited me to a stamping retreat with a wonderful group of ladies.  I colored all weekend and had an amazing time!!  I'm not much for putting cards together... Anyway, I wanted to surprise Kim and show her that I used the adorable paper she gave me- the mushroom paper!!  (winks)

And I am finally done with the sign!  Thank you all for your super sweet comments and my foot is healing just fine!!  


Be sure to leave a comment on each and everyone's blog along the hop!! AND BE SURE TO GO BACK to the last link our home blog page to leave a comment that you have completed the hop!  You'll have a chance to win one of three gift certificates!! We'll hop for two days and then announce the winners on Wednesday, May 9th!  

Okay, if you have arrived here from my best friend in all of England, Vivienne Holden, then you are on the right track... Oh my and now you will be on your way to see what the lovely and talented Ruthie has in store for you!!

Here is the order in case you've lost your way... 

Joanna Bandelin 

Thank you again everyone!  Have a beautiful day!

Peachy Keen Stamps March Stamp Club of the Month

Hello there Peachies!

Here are some cards that I made with the new stamp releases, peachy picks and action wobbles! All of the new stamp sets will be available on our site on Saturday! Don't miss the release party on The Peachy Keen Connection site either!! There are some good prizes to be had!! Two challenges are going on too!! One is at Lorie Souther's blog and one of the challenges is at Cristina Garcia's blog ( you have the weekend to create with). Many of our designers will be available to chat live with you! :) It is this Saturday from 10 am to 11am CST ... I will be there.. will you?

The card above was made with two stamps. The gnome is from the PKSC-03 March 2013 and the thank you sentiment is from PK-562 Gnomegrown.
I used the Peachy Picks Kit for all of my cards! Above is Thinking of you... (inside"makes me smile!") This sentiment is from PK-284 Spring Bouquet. The rest of the card was stamped with combos of PKSC-03 March 2012 Set.
This thank you note was so fun to make! I liked it so much that I made the same card twice! The thank you stamp is from PK-562 Gnomegrown and the wreath and the face are in the Stamp Club of the Month PKSC-03 March 2012.
I created this little cutie with PK-563 Garden Wheelies

This card was made with just the PKSC-03 March 2012 Above is the outside and below is the inside
Above is a card I made with my sister and my brother in law in mind. They have moved after 20+ years in the same house.. to a beautiful place on a pond! Every stamp image on here is on the PKSC-03 with the exception of the "Just a gnote" sentiment at the bottom of the card.

Above is one last card that I made with PKSC-03 March 2012 and Peachy Picks Kit!!

Colby and Jack Cheesehead WINNERS!!

Thank you all so much for playing along with me on this give away. It was fun to see and to HEAR outside.. GO PACK GO! It always brings a tear to my eye... shhh.. don't tell Dave that or he will never let me live it down! The fans sure showed up.. but the PACKERS did not! I've never ever heard the packer stadium with so many BOOS flying from it! The playoff game was awful... and for those of you that don't know.. the Packers LOST BIG TIME!

Many people from facebook were having trouble with blogger.. so I thought it only fair to do two giveaways!

The comment winner on the blog is: JONI!!
