that you don't get to keep the beautiful creations yourself at the end!
We're good friends with a family from church who have 4 gorgeous children aged between 9 and 17 and when they found out I was into scrapbooking the girls were really interested in having a few crafty days together. So today was the second day I've had with them 'teaching' them how to make cards.
I was much more organised this time and had a few ideas up my sleeves, complete with sketches and supplies and what-not, but happy to still go with the flow. Which is good, because as I was blog-hopping while waiting for them to arrive, I came across this stunning card from Karen from The Bald Dragonfly that I immediately wanted to do myself.
So instead, I incorporated it into the 'teaching schedule' and we made this one:
I want to stress that I didn't make any of these cards myself, these were all done by my talented 'students'. The one above and the following three were made by my 16-year-old. How awesome is she?
How cute is that cupcake? It's covered in sprinkles. Click on the image to see more detail.
This one may look familiar since it's a different version of a card I showed you not that long ago here.
This rosette is actually a badge, so you can remove it and wear it. It reminds me of those children's birthday cards you buy with the badge saying 'now I am 2'. But we were actually thinking of Mother's Day!
And these two cards were made by my "just turned 9-year-old". Talk about amazing!
I told them I would post them on my blog. They're pretty excited.
I am too. My first students!
