Well, let me start off by saying WOW WOW WOW!!!! I think I had the best class in a long time last night! Don't get me wrong, I love what I do and enjoy my stamping nights, but last night's class was SUPER fun! The company was amazing, the projects were fun and I went to bed with a smile on my face! Thank you Bird, Mer, Sundee, Dale, Mom and Sonia for such a fun night!!!!!
Now, onto my multiple projects here! The VERY first set of out of the new catalogue that Emma just "had" to get was the moustache stamp set (yes, that one that you've all overlooked....at the front of the catalogue in the a la carte section....you know the one, right?) Emma has made some fun projects with it and I thought it was time I dusted it off and used it! So, challenge number 1...use this set.
Challenge number 2....make something fun for my kids as it's already been a bit of a long week. When the kids get off the bus, we often all start heading in multiple directions between cheer, football, classes, dog walking and life but yesterday NO ONE had to be anywhere right away so I thought doing something easy and fun for all four kids would be a great way to start our evening.
SO, what I decided to do was stamp the moustache set on some Whisper White cardstock (in Staz On), cut them out, punch a small hole with the crop-o-dile in the moustache and stick it on a Tootsie Pop (I said easy!!!) I unwrapped the candies, put them in a bowl, grabbed my camera and was ready for them to come home. I had to laugh at their reactions and how excited they all were (except Cole, who ripped the moustache off RIGHT away and just got right into the sucker!)
What did we learn from this? It truly does take small things to amuse us. The stamp set was not a waste of my money and we will get many more uses out of it! My kids and I are going to stamp a million (ok, slight exaggeration) of these and laminate them so they don't get all soggy when on a sucker). We'll make some with bigger holes for straws to go through as well and we'll make some with no holes as well! I can't wait! Can you believe that this $10 stamp set has created this much happiness.....and is including my non crafting son (Mark) to want to craft!!! SO EXCITED!
And then of course, I had to scrapbook the event in My Digital Studio! I made the moustache out of the bird punch, and the rest of the DSP and elements are from the Big Top Birthday suite!
I hope you like today's post and photos! Well, I'd really love to stay and chat but I really
