Craftin’ with Kids

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a Craftin’ with kids class.  All the kids that would join in with my own kids have grown up!  They are such great stampers, they are welcome to join in to my adult classes now!  But, I got to thinking about all those homeschoolin’ mom’s out there looking for something fun and different to do with their children over the summer.  I reached out to a homeschooling friend, and whoa…we had 13 kids signed up to join me!

Here is what they created:

Pretty Kitty using Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White


Bella and Friends in Marina Mist and Whisper White


This Little Piggy in Powder Pink and Basic Gray

The kids always love to color and use the Big Shot!  They had such a fun time, they’ll be back in November!



Kids Craft Class- August 2015

This was a bittersweet class.  I have had a Kids Craft class for year…since my punks were wee ones.  I only had 2 little gals join me this time and I realized,  all my little crafters have grown up and are busy doing teenage things.  My littlest stampers have been doing this for some time and I think they are able to stamp with the big dogs now….Just Cards class would be perfect for them!  So, sadly, this is my last Kids Craft Class 🙁  if any of those little punks want to stamp, just let me know and we can arrange a just cards class for them!  Thank you for joining me all those years, not so wee ones…..don’t forget to slow down and have fun!

Here is what they created:



I got this swap at convention and thought it would work perfectly for kids class!
