Craftiness Craze

I was looking on Ebay for a ribbon holder for my daughter and they were selling for $25! I couldn't believe so I decided to make my own using stampin' up supplies. I will custom make these for $12.50! Half the Ebay price!

This is a really poor picture but this was a super fun and cute project. We are doing it for our church Super Saturday. You can either say Some of my Greatest Blessings call my Mom, or Some of my Greatest Blessings Call me Grandma. I sell these for $25. Measures 12 inches by 40 inches. Fits up to six magnet names comfortably!

I love this for the craft projects that my kids are constantly bringing home. Now I have a place to put them. I will customize this project for $20.

New Kids card club coming up!

Right now I am organizing a new club that will start in January. It is like a 10 for 10 but geared towards children. The cards are easy to put together and fun for cards. Each month will feature a new type of card. For example, January will be extreme sports (the cards shown above.) February will focus on girls with ponies, flowers, etc. March will be sports, April will be robots and so forth. This club will cost $15 and you will walk away with 10 kids cards and a small gift (ribbon, stamp, etc.) These cards can be assembled by you the night of club or you can do the stamping and take them home for your children to assemble so that they feel a part of the process. Then you will have a bunch of cards just ready to give away at birthdays or as thankyou cards. This club will run for 6 months. If you sign up, you are committed for the entire six months. I have room for 12 people to participate. Email me or give me a call if you would like to sign up!

Homemade Animal Memory Game

So I woke this morning at six and decided to make this. I had been thinking about what I could make that was cute for kids because stampin' up is doing a contest for demonstrators. So I thought of this and gave it a try. This is the front of the game board.

This is what the inside of the game board looks like. It is sturdy because it is made from layers of cardstock and paper.
These are the pieces to the game. For young children you use the game board and 6 pairs of cards. You can play by color, by animal or both. For more advanced or older players you can use all 32 cards on the floor or on a table.

This is the back. A paper bag was adhered to it so that you can keep the cards inside and the instructions are also on the back. What do you think? Will stampin' up like it?
