Kids @ Scrap Camp

Today’s post is about one of my favorite things about my job!  Kids getting Crafty!

I love seeing the electronics on the counter and the little hands busy with glue, glitter, and paints.

I have been a paper craft instructor for 6 1/2 years and I just recently added on the Summer Kids Scrap Camp.

I only do it twice a week through the summer and so far it has been a blast.  Here are a few photos of some of the kids showing off their crafty side.

The kids are using  Unique Laser Designs  wood embellishments to decorate a wooden desk top pencil box.

I hope you can find time to give your kids some thing crafty to do.

If you are local, I have 6 Scrap Camp days left.  Contact me for more info.

Time to get crafty!

August Challenge, Arrow’s & #’s..

This months challenge sounds fun to me.  I love arrows and I love #’s.  This should be an easy challenge for our crafty friends.  Arrows and #’s can be found on so many things!  Many of our favorite manufacturers have arrows and #’s on their products.  Washi tapes, patterned papers, stamps, wood embellishments, cork stickers, stencils, die cuts, embossing folders, metal and acrylic embellishments, and more.

Our Challenge winner for July is Beth F. Congratulations Beth, please private message me off of my Facebook page or send me an email so we can send out your prize.

Laura is hosting this challenge and is giving one lucky crafter this set of goodies.

Favorite Things Friday! Patterns

Happy Friday!

Chevrons, stripes, floral, polka dots, text, arrows, checkers, plaid.. which is your favorite?

I asked the design team which is their favorite pattern to design with.. some picked one.. and some couldn’t decide.

Check out their favorite patterns.. and you decide which is your favorite too.

You only need one!

Are you ever working on a project and say I only need one more embellishment to finish this off?  Why not finish it off with just one Unique Laser Designs wood embellishment?

I thought today would be a good day to share some more wood embellishments that I used from Unique Laser Designs.

You only need one to compete a project!

Here are a few tags and a cover of a mini album where I only used one!  Remember you can paint, distress, stamp, emboss, cover w/ paper, etc.. so many options for finishing off your wood embellishments.  Stop by the Unique laser Designs website to see a variety of shapes you might want.
