Kids Craft Class, Project One

Good afternoon, last week I held my first ever kids craft class at my daughter school. the girls made a Valentines card with a matching bag filled with Jaffas.

I did all the cutting for them but they had to put this together and colour in their picture. Im glad I did do all the cutting as it took right till the end to finish the two projects. Being kids I didnt want ot to be too romantic so I thought this stamp set was perfect.


The card on its own:


And the bag:


Tomorrow we are doing our first scrapbook page for their own 8’” by 8” album, I have designed this page to be of them.

Stampin Up Pop ‘n’ Cuts

Good evening, I have been working on a few cards made with the new die called pop ‘n’ cuts, but unfortunately I have not finished them yet. but in the mean time I have had a few questions about this die so I thought I would share this link to a video all about them.

As soon as I finish my first card I will post it so you can see them.

First of my Valentines Cards

Good evening, today I had a few hours to myself which was fantastic, I sat at the table and crafted. I made a couple of Valentines cards so I thought I would share one with you tonight.

For this card I have decided to make it so it could be for a male or female. This is a 5” by 5” square card.

It uses the DSP called Fan Fair and is matched with Victoria Lace Ribbon and Black Satin Ribbon. I have cut the heart from the Heart Framelits and embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder. The sentiment is from Affection Collection.


The inside:


And with the envelope:


Colours Used were:

Riding Hood Red

Basic Black

Crumb Cake

Very Vanilla.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend.
