Crafting with Kids

Okay you know your kids pay attention to what you do when your 6 year old son is excited to see your CTMH fedex delivery because he thinks your new "robot stamps" for making comics are in there...which they were, because he kept asking about that set every time he saw my Idea book!  What do you like to craft with your kids?  (Stamp set is Robot Family)

Lollydoodle My Stickease Spare Card On Hand

I am a firm believer in always having blank cards on hand.  You never now when an unexpected birthday, anniversary, sympathy, or thinking of you card will be needed.  I can't tell you how many times my husband or kids have come to me and asked for a card for some one on their way out the door as if I was magically supposed to just know that it was a special event in a persons life that I've never met....guess that's why I'm the Mom!  So THAT was the inspiration for the third card in our Lollydoodle lovefest.  AND that's why the sentiment area was left blank!!!!

You'll see how I added my favorite embellishment of Liquid Glass once again to outline and give some WoW factor to the details of the My Stickease Lollydoodle stickers.  I also wanted to mention a fun idea is to add little stickers (or stamped images) to the inside of your cards to continue the color and fun.

Lollydoodle Owl Card 2

Next up in our Lollydoodle lovefest is our 2nd Owl card.  This card was so fast and easy!  I just layered the My Stickease overtop of each one and another until I filled the the card.  Remember you can crop the Stickers apart and use them separately too.  Which is exactly what I did here with the portion of the tree, then later used the cropped out piece sideways as the grass base!

Remember to decorate the inside of your cards, and even the back with the left over little stickers pieces.  I used the Liquid Glass to highlight and give some WOW factor like on the swirls of the leaves and the owls eyes.

Lollydoodle Owl Card 1

Continuing our Lollydoodle lovefest, here is the first of 3 cards from my March workshop kits, which featured the fast and easy treatment of layering My Stickease quickly onto cards AND BAM you're done!  They come in all shapes and sizes, lots have a variety of sayings right on them making them perfect for scrapbooking AND cardmaking.  So here is our first card:
What do you think??? It maybe hard to see in the photo, but I decided for some extra pizazz to add Liquid Glass to high light special areas around the card; note the letters of Love and the owls eyes.  I also added some to the detailing on the top flap of the B&T paper.

Head to heatherplotzke.ctmh.com to get all the supplies for this fun project and more now.
