Back to School

Hello everyone!  My mom told me about a contest that Simon Says Stamp is having for kids between the age of 2 to 16!


I decided to make a couple of cards and some painting for this challenge.  I had a lot of fun just playing around and coloring and painting.

Take a look at my first card:

Little girl

Ok so my coloring needs some improvement but I just turned 8 and I was having fun.    I love this little girl because she reminds me of me, take a look at those glasses.

I saw my mom add glossy accents to her cards for added dimension so I wanted to add it to the glasses for fun.  I think it looks cute and funny that her glasses pop off of the card.

I added some glitter to the hearts and the sentiment but it was hard for the camera to pick up.

Check out my second card:

little boy

This little boy is the little girl’s brother.  Check out his glasses.  It runs in the family.  I stayed in the lines a little bit more after mom begged and pleaded with me to stay in the lines.

I told her “it doesn’t have to be perfect its my work of art”.   She said ok, with a worried look on her face.  Adults worry to much.

His glasses looks funny too! I love it.  I like this stamp set my mom bought.

This summer my mom registered me into a summer enrichment art program.  It was fun.  I learned how to draw with pastels.

Now take a look at some of the drawing I created with my new pastels my mom bought me:

Thank You So Much..

School is over!!  Yayyyyy!!

I have a two month brake.   What am I going to do this summer?

I created my bucket list for the summer.  Here are a couple of things I would love to do:

1. Go to the Pool

2. Go to Great Wolf Lodge

3. Go to the Beach

4. Go to Bush Gardens

5. Go to Adventureland

I can’t wait to do some of these things.

Moving on to my project, my classmates and I created a thank you book for our second grade teacher.  We had some help from my mom.  My mom got this idea from Linda Barber.

Take a look:

book pages

1. My mom surprised my class and I.  She had us create this banner style pages for my teacher.

2. Then my mother showed me how to cut the covers using Lawn Fawn’s stitched banner die out of chipboard.

3.  I covered the chipboard with my Stampin’ Up!’s Midnight Moon DSP.  I also created the spine of the book from the same DSP.

4.  I put  the spine and the covers together. Used my mom’s big hole punch to make holes in the spine.

Thank you book

5.  I added all of the pages and bind the book with some Stampin’ Up! Lost Lagoon ribbon.  I die cut letter from the new Stampin’ UP! in colors.  I colored the apple using a Copic marker (which my mom never lets me use, yayyy).

So what do you think of my present to my teacher?  Oh, wait my mom add a picture of the entire class to the first page.  Very nice.

Created with:

Stampin’ Up! : 2014-2016 In colors, Lost Lagoon Ribbon and Midnight Moon DSP

Lawn Fawn: Stitched Party Banner Die, Louie’s ABC Die and A Good Apple Stamp Set

Memory Keepers: Crop-a-dile

Thank you for stopping by.

You will Love This…Watercolor!

Hello everyone, I’m back.  My mom set some time aside on Friday evenings for us to work on my blog.  So from now now you will see a post from me on Friday’s.  I’m so excited.

Today’s card was created for Addicted to CAS Challenge this week.  My mom and I worked on textured.

My mom asked me to create a card based on what I thought textured meant to me.

A couple of weeks ago, I created a couple of watercolor backgrounds using my moms watercolor pencils.  She taught me to create colors from the pencil shaving, that was so cool.

I added some bakers twine to create texture on my card.  I love it.

Love this


I hope you like it!!

PS – Here is my mom’s card for the same challenge.

Guess what happened at school today

I had a great day at school today.  Today was crazy hat day and this week is also Teacher appreciation week.  I was so busy this weekend preparing for both occasions.  I had so much fun.

So for crazy hat day, we were told to make a crazy hat out of recycle materials.  I asked my mom if we can use some of the old tin foil for my project and she said YES!!

My hat is pretty funny looking but I love it.  You will too.

So, I submitted my hat into the competition and GUESS WHAT!!!!!! My hat WON.  I was so excited.  I called my mom to tell her.  My certificate is hanging up in my room.  I’m so proud of myself.

On top of that, today starts teacher appreciation week.  I really like my teacher.  She helps me a lot with my work.  So, I wanted to do something nice for her everyday of this week, starting with today.

I made her a handmade card with something EXTRA!  The front of the card says “thank you for all the EXTRA work you do!”

My teacher loved it!!  I can’t wait till she sees what I have for her on Wednesday!  Stay tuned!

I am Here

Hello everyone!!  I finally made it!

Today is the first day of my new blog.  I’m so excited that my mom has decided to let me share my creations with the world.  It took a lot of convincing but she finally said it was ok.

I will post all of the things that I create alongside my mom.  She is such a great teacher.  I hope to post often but my everyday life might stop me.  Homework and chores are important so until those are done, I can’t post.  I hope you understand.

My mom is taking a watercolor class starting next week and she I can take the class with her.  So starting next week you will see some of the cards that I come up with.

For my post today, I will post the pillow I recently made in my sewing class.  My sewing class is so much fun.  I’ve learned a lot about thread, my sewing machine and sewing in a straight line.

Take a look at my pillow that I made all by myself:
