Stampin’ with the Kids

By | February 5, 2016

I love sharing Stampin’ Up with everyone and that includes my children so when there is a family birthday, I love getting the kids in the craft room to make cards for the birthday boy or girl.  We have quite a few Birthdays in January with my Mum and two of my children, so I thought I would share just a few of the projects we made.

First of all we made some simple invitations for a Birthday tea we held here.  It is so easy to personalise your projects with the Alphabet Rotary stamp – and much nicer than just printing them off from the PC.

We made a his and hers version – the kids loved this, being the same but different!!

When the day came, we kept to the same theme with the hearts and stars and made party bags with elements from the Mini Treat bag Thinlits.  The kids drew special pictures for their friends on the bags too!

Here are some of the cards we made.

This was one for my daughter  – I called it my Cheeky Monkey – the DSP is retired but we have some current Balloon DSP in the Its’ My Party DSP stack.

Then my little girl wanted to make her big sister a My little Pony card as it’s her new obsession! I cased the shape of Apple Jack from a card I found on Pinterest by Pamela Sue Roberts – I don’t think she has a blog as there was no link, just a photo, but thank you so much Pamela!  I’ve used the new Confetti TIEF and sponged with Daffodil Delight and Blushing Bride and as she’s only 3, I she did the punching and I did the sticking!

My just turned 6 year old son, made this ALL BY HIMSELF for this big sister.  I was so proud!  He knew where everything was in my craft room and, like most children, couldn’t wait for me to finish what I was doing to help him.  So with a picture to inspire me, off he went. The only bit I did was tie the bow, very proud Mum here!

I hope you like our projects, do leave a comment as the children would love to see that you have seen them! I also hope that it gives you some ideas and inspiration to get you crafting with your children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews. They really enjoy it and get such a kick out of their finished projects.

I personally loved it when my son asked ‘where’s your stick for making the really good folds?’ and here he is using it! (Excuse the mess!)
