End of term, end of 10year olds

Wow, what a busy last few weeks of term! The Year 6 did us proud in their end of year school play, with confidence and talent.  There was a trip to the beach on the hottest day of the year, a party to celebrate, and so the list goes on!  Life is busy when you are a Mum.  Then there are the Birthday parties.  I sometimes forget that once my child has turned a certain age, their are others in the year to catch up to!  So here are a couple of cards I knocked up for 11 year old boys.  Inspiration for the frog in a jar was taken from Deinse at Ladybug Stampin.

Friends for life

You may have heard me talk about Periscope before.  You may have no clue what it is! Well as briefly as I can explain it, it is a live broadcasting platform.  You can live broad from your device.  You can view anyone that is broadcasting from around the world live! (Or catch any videos they have previously done) Amazing right! Well my name or in technical terms, my 'handle' is @StampinStarCreations You can watch me craft and show demo's of cards and crafts I make.

Any how to cut a long story short, I have made some lovely friends through it. Both in the UK and abroad. The first card was for a lady called Linda for her Birthday.  Using a Timeless Textures and Crazy for You stamp sets.

This next card was for another friend I have made via periscope, she very kindly sent me some waz paper and 'stick-it' its fab for die cutting.  It acts as an adhesive on the back to save you fiddling with the fine lines.  On this particulat card I cut out the word thanks (which was used on another card) from a thinlit die (hello you set). Cut the same work out in Melon Mambo (hot pink) and inlayed it for a different effect.  The stick-it stuff worked amazingly on it! So a big thanks to Michaela.
