Wow I tell Ya!!!

Considering it is a long weekend here we really have no plans although we have been on a long walk this afternoon with the girls and been to two parks where they both delighted in playing with mummy and daddy! Suffice to say I did over 18 kilometers today in total including cleaning the house this morning...

I have a problem though a lovely problem although will be expensive in the long run - I have lost 11 kilos of myself along the way (WOW I Tell YA!) To think I was carrying that much extra and do I feel good... I can walk further now without puffing and playing with my girls it is brilliant.

Anyhow I thought I would share these cards that Princess Samantha has made her ideas astound me! All stamps on the following cards are The Stamps of Life I love all these stamps and you can become a member and recieve them cheaper - Yes they will post international!!!!!!

These cards are for her classmates at school;
She stamped this first one all by herself and I taught her to use the Grand Calibur machine so that she can use all the Spellbinders that I own.
Here is her second card - she cut all the shapes etc I just tied the bow.
The next weekend we got really busy!!!!
I taught her to use the cuttlebug as well so that she could get some dimension.
She did all the stamping!
Now I was playing about with my Copic Sketch pens and then she stuck it all down and I tied the ribbon...
Simple but easy - I had to stamp this one...
Used the idea to make a shaker card from Little Scrapbook Shop in the step by step and techniques section to come up with this - did she have fun with this technical little beauty. I just purchased this stamp set from The Stamps of Life and this snowman and globe are so cute!!!! Samantha put the ribbon on the card and I tied the knot!
I was playing around showing her how to make a very easy chrismas tree - we used the star from The Stamps of Life where I showed her how to emboss - did she love that! Then she came up with the idea of the ribbons for trimming - now how simple is this?

Okay this one is mine that she will still use - I found some instructions in spotlight from Martha Stewart to make this flower althought it is really BIG in depth to go in an envelope we will have to make one to fit it! I love how it has turned out... Took alot of time to make so a little fiddly but looks good!

I will share more when I take some photos she has 25 cards in total to make for school mates then more for her teachers plus we have to do family cards and make presents too! She has about 16 completed in total... Will share more sunday hopefully!

So until next time enjoy creating with your loved ones no matter how big or small the project may be.
