Emma had some friends over and they wanted to craft yesterday! Of course I was super excited about this, but had nothing planned. They were all excited to just "create" and I was excited to help them "create". It was fun seeing them all create such neat projects from a piece of paper with no direction, idea or guidelines. Now, I'm sure you can tell judging by the pictures things got a little "out of hand" or should I say "creative"!
Emma whipped together a card in about 10 minutes so got "bored" while her friends were just cutting, Big Shotting and gluing like mad women. So Emma decided to make everyone their own mustache, eyebrows and other facial growth. They were all so amused and loved it so who am I to judge:) I love that she took the time to emboss them, fray the paper edges and even use DSP for some of them! Oh to be 12 again:)
I love that there were no restrictions or even suggestions and this is one project that was made....I love that she made the robot completely on her own...no big shot dies for these sweet boxes! Isn't it adorable? The lighting is off (sorry took the pictures at night) but I love the shiny tape and duct tape that she used on this little gem!
Another fun one was this sweet milk carton. I loved showing the kids the dies and when I said this was a milk carton she got super excited and wanted to get crafting. I love that she made it look like an actual milk carton and then punched and cut out a cow! Isn't it sweet!!!!
A few decided to make cards, afterall that's what is scattered around our whole house (or so it seems). It'shard to tell in the photo, but Emma's friend used the dry embossing folder (polka dots) on the red circle which really makes it pop! I love that all the girls used fun colour combinations that really are outside my comfort zone, but they look awesome! The doily on this card is cut from the Flirtacious paper....sad this one retires in under a week!
I am also sad to see this paper leaving us....the fun birthday/circus one. This colour combination is right up my alley! The front of the card is the stripes, and the inside is the balloons...why don't I use DSP as the actual card! I'm telling you we can learn a ton from these young, carefree girls! I love it!
I hope you enjoy some of today's creations! I told the girls I'd hold a contest on my blog for the craftiest but I think they all deserve a prize, they are fun and amazing! I hope you have a great day today...Mark's first football game for his spring team, Emma has cheer tryouts, Nathan has a birthday party.....lots of fun!!!!
Take care and thank you for taking the time to stop by today!
