Making Cards with my Grandkids!

My son and his family were in town visiting this weekend.  Right after breakfast the kids asked if they could make some cards.

“Why, yes – Grandma Debbie would LOVE to do that with you!”  So off we went to my corner of the sunroom, which Jack named “Grandma’s Workshop” years ago; and the name stuck.

I pulled out some card kits that were left over from prior classes to get started.  Then we grabbed some ink and stamp sets and the kids went to town.

Sorry you're sick

Maddie made this card using a design from my upcoming event – “Kids Making Cards for Kids”

 

Present for Maddie

Maddie made this Christmas card. Notice the “kiss” technique used to create plaid gift wrap. And she put a tag with her name on it so everyone would know that the present is for Maddie. 🙂

Bday by Jack

Jack made this card and handwrote the sentiment instead of using a stamp. Kids do the darndest things!

Crafting with kids is so fun !  They are not afraid to step out of the box and do their own thing.  You can do it too.

It’s easy with Stampin’ Up!’s monthly Paper Pumpkin craft subscription.  Everything you need is included (except adhesive/glue and scissors).  You get an exclusive stamp set, ink, and all paper pieces to complete the project of the month.

Swap Cards from Atlanta

Here are some Halloween themed swaps that I received at World Card Making Day in Atlanta.  You may already have seen them in a blog post of the demonstrator who made the card/project.  But for some of you, these are new and never seen before paper creations.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.  I keep going back to them for inspiration!

This first one is Clean and simple – don’t you love it?

You don’t have to use the coordinating Hearth and Home Thinlits Dies with the Happy Scenes stamp set.  Look how cute this card turned out

I’m pretty sure there was some chocolate in this bag when I got it.  Hmm…. “death by chocolate” – what a way to go!

Here is an easy layout to duplicate.  I envision cards made using different Designer Series Paper and changing the sentiment.  A lovely floral paper would make a great birthday card!
