DAY 4...


Most of the KID ART received from my children throughout the years was on paper the size of a barn - way too big for albums and especially for cards.  I tried taking photos of large pieces, but when reduced, they didn't turn out as bright or detailed or charming. By the time grandkids arrived on the scene, I came up with the idea to offer them white cardstock, pre-cut into smaller pieces.

Stick kids
The drawings below were made by grandkids, but stamped by me for this series. If grandkids had done the stamping, there would be many images all over every card, inside and out! Even though I love using OLD CARDS and PHOTOS to make refashioned cards, using KID STUFF just might be the most imaginative of all...

Little 3x3 note cards are fun and fast for little girls.

Little boys like bigger challenges...

KID NOTES:  I used crayons as props in the photos above because I thought it looked kid-cool. But you can see that several mediums including finger paint and Stampin' Markers were used. My grandkids are fascinated by my stamp room and think it is an enchanted place. Hummmm... Actually, it is! The minute they walk in, eyes open wide and hearts beat fast. When they were younger, simple rubber stamping fascinated them, but recently they've graduated up to the Big Shot!! Me Oh My! I shouldn't be surprised that my very young computer-savvy grandkids figured out how to master my Multipurpose Platform, Sizzlits, Dies and Embossing Folders! This is a new day and age, isn't it! All that to say, I sure love being a Stampin' Up! grandma, and hope you have enjoyed this KID STUFF!

Linda this too is FAB-U-Lous! and... you've given me an idea. My grandkids will be spending 3 weeks with me for summer visit in July. I think I'll have them make a set of notes for their Teacher (next year) for Christmas! How fun... their "own art" note cards. Love this and thanks for the inspiration... as always. hugs.
