inspriation post

     My two little girls always see me crafting and always want to join in on the fun.  But when I'm sitting at my desk in a creative flow, it's hard to stop what I'm doing to stamp them something, help them find a matching piece of paper, show them how to fold a card.   So I've created some fun little card making kits for my girls.  here's what they look like.

      Inside they have little folded cards, embellishments, borders, die cut sentiments, stamped images for them to color, and coordinating paper.

     To cut down on time whenever I stamp an image I stamp an extra for the kits (same goes for sentiments and diecuts).  I use large and small scraps from my stash to make the trims, borders, and coordinating papers.   And I use extra embellishments that I have from my stash, or I make them, or I get them on the cheap from big lots.

     You can add whatever your kids like, and totally customize it.  These card kits are a cheap, fun, and thoughtful rainy day gift. They are especially perfect for a tweens birthday gift or even a slumber party.  I given lots of these out, and they are always a great hit. 

So pull out you Inky stamps, and try making a kit! :)
