Happy June!!! Yes it really is June! Can you believe we are halfway through 2013! Wowza! Well, school is almost out for the summer for us and that means two little ones at home with nothing do!
But never fear - Taylor has put together an awesome Kids Summer Fun Pack full of crafting accessories and paper and card stock for them to create their very own cards!! I can't even tell you HOW much my kids enjoyed making their projects! They didn't want to go to school - they just wanted to stay home and make cards - LOL - I can't blame them!! I just want to stay at home from work and make cards too!! Check out all this awesomeness in this pack:
My kids were so excited to get this pack from Taylor! Their very own paper and embellishments!!! They both started going through my stamp sets and both picked the Feeling Groovy stamp set and got to stamping right away!
This was amazing to me for three reasons:
- That they both agreed on the same thing! They loved this super sweet stamp set!!!
- They didn't fight at all while using the Kids Summer Fun Pack - seriously! No fighting, squabbling, pushing or telling on each other - oh what wonderfulness this was!! They were so sweet to each other and shared everything and gave each other ideas for their cards!! It was a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e!!!
- They had to craft at the dining room table because I didn't have enough space at my desk for the both of them to do it together and when I asked them to clean off the dining room table so that we could get our craft on - they did it right away - the very first time (not the 8th or 9th time!!) I couldn't believe it when I turned around the dining room table was clean and they were sitting down ready to craft!! Say what?! Are you sure these are my kids?! LOL!!! They were so happy to have all this new stuff to play with - their very very own!! Here is a picture of my Tiny Chefs ready to get crafty!
Here is a picture of Jayanta cutting out the car that he stamped out and then colored in with his crayons. He wanted to use my Copics - but I convinced him that his crayons would work better :)
He got excited that the flowers layered together and that the brad was the thing that could hold it together! I love how he cut out the grass and created a little scene for his car :) My favorite was his excitement when he decided to put buttons on the wheels of his car - so cute!
I loved watching my little cuties getting so excited about making cards! They have already planned out all the rest of the cards that they are going to make for their teachers, their grandparents and friends. They couldn't quite tie the ribbon so I helped them tie it but then they wanted to trim it on their own - these two cards that they made were for their BFFs: Here is Uma's card of Love, Peace and Happiness:
And here is Jayanta's card of Feelin' Groovy:
And here is a picture of them together holding their creations - they were so excited to use Taylor's stamps - which now they think belong to them...ummmm... and loved making their projects!
