Our 7 year old grand-daughter has inherited the crafting gene! I recently taught her how to decoupage. This is her creation using 3-D cardboard letters, bits of designer paper and then she painted the sides of each letter.
Finally! After 3 months I've sat down to make a card (hopefully more) for a friend. I stamped a square with the Penney Black daisy background stamp. Since I'm am one of the few people left on the planet who don't own any copic markers, I colored it with Prismacolor pencils. I used white opal Liquid Pearl Accent on the little dots. Then mounted it on the colored paper and added a scripture verse and ribbon. I think she'll like it.
Who can stop with making only one card?! Not me! Here's a birthday card for one of my sisters. I needed to plug into the inner child and stamped/colored this one too (House Mouse "Fish Bowl").
I used the wrong type of black ink so coloring was becoming smeared and affected the color, but
I think it's still cute. I used Glossy Accents to make the bubbles.
I made these photo boxes a few years ago. They are made with scrapbook
card stock type paper. When the lid is removed and the four sides open
with other pages for a total of 21 pictures (or writing, or whatever). Cute idea for a new
grandparent, parent or aunt/uncle?
Well, hello! It's been a while since I've posted here. We are back home in WA and settled in (including my craft area). I have been very busy and unable to take time to sit and create, although I have done several crafts with our 7 year old granddaughter.
I found this "before/after" picture the other day. It was a project I tackled for our granddaughter who was born in 2006. I purchased the rocking horse at a neighbor's yard sale. I thought it turned out kind of cute! It has been out-grown and is now stored in the attic. I think I'll give it to her on her 16th birthday - God willing.
