I'm late getting in here but it's a bit busy around here. LOL The girls are having a good time so far. They even totally forgot about asking for their tablet/ phone yesterday!

Today, I've had several webinars so they've had their devices part of the day.

So what have we been doing?  Well, yesterday I introduced them to the shaving cream technique. They used them to make card bases which became Father's Day cards they could mail to their daddy. We used all Stampin' UP! reinkers

I took the opportunity to make bases for my bases for the WOYWW 8th Anniversary ATC's. The full sheets are mine.

Abby (age 5)
She used Melon Mambo, Old Olive and Gray

We added mats from the SU Color Theory Designer Series Paper
Heart - SU
Sentiment - SU - Sentiments

We used the Stitched Framelits dies from SU for the small squares

Adrian (Age 9)

Adrian chose Real Red, Marina Mist, Black

Adrian used inks to color the edges of Whisper White cardstock.
She used the Stitched Framelits dies.

She chose SU - So In Love for her flower/ sentiment
 and SU - Wonderous Wreath for the bow

Because Adrian is older and been playing with my toys since the age of 2, she had a bit more freedom to be creative such as using the dauber to color the edges as well as learning to use the Watercolor Pencils. She thought those were pretty cool. 

Both girls got to use the Vagabond to cut their dies with plenty of supervision. Adrian will be using the Vagabond more as the summer progresses. 

I know you guys have been waiting to see the paper cabinet. I hope to have pictures on Wednesday.
