I have two very different cards today, one for a birthday and one new home card.
The birthday card was for my eldest, Hollie, who was 7 way back in February. I really love the colours and the flower number 7!
I love to see how the girls are growing up together so thought I would join in with the Siblings linky.
The girls are really beginning to play together and enjoy each others company and they really miss each other if they aren't together. When Amelia goes for a nap, Hollie can't wait for her to wake and play!
Today I have a few more cards that I have made recently that were for little girls.
I really loving the Die-namics dies and love the numbers and the stitched dies.
The cards are full of colour, pattern and embellishments and I really enjoyed making them! Hope you like them too!
A few months ago I decided to create another blog for the cards I make but I haven't really added many on to it and haven't made many anyway. so I have decided to show the cards I have made on this blog on a Friday. That way I can still show them but will be contained to one post a week.
I really want to get back into crafting more and hopefully will soon but in the meanwhile I have a few cards I made earlier in the year.
Before half term, Hollie had to make a miniature beach for her homework. To begin with I struggled with ideas for little items to use but once I had looked on Pinterest for inspiration, the ideas came flowing. Here is what we came up with.
We started out with a thick square cardboard box which we cut down to make a tray. We added some card to the bottom to make the sand and the sea and then got to work making the items for the beach.
We thought it would be good to make a beach hut but this one is a little too big but it was the best size cardboard box we could find but it doesn't matter. We covered it in basic printer paper and then added a roof and a door.
For the items on the beach, we only bought the cocktail umbrellas and the shells. We made some little beach mats, pinwheels and spades and then used two little toothpaste caps for the buckets.
We didn't want to go too mad with it as it was for Hollie, who's 7, to do (although obviously I helped her) and for her homework but she had great fun gluing, sticking, colouring and tacking everything down.
In the end it came together well but I think they send out the homework to test the parents as the homework before was to make the football world cup!
What do you think? Do you prefer creative homework or subject based like maths or English? I would love to hear.
