I Let My 8 Year Old Pick the Papers! Gulp!

Posted on

It’s almost Spring and that seems to mean Birthday Season. In my house we are a week and a half away from the second birthday of the four that take place between the end of February and the first week of May, and that particular little girl got two party invitations recently. Guess a lot of people figure the Spring is a good time to have kids!

I decided to get her to help make some decisions for the cards she wanted for her friends. So we went through my stash of 6×6 papers from old Simon Says Stamp kits as well as my hoard of 6×6 papers, and she picked out her favourites. There was a lot of rainbow colour schemes involved!

Due to a volleyball tournament on Saturday morning, I wasn’t able to make a card for the party she had later that day, but she helped herself to the papers and made a pretty sweet card of her own. Which left me slightly fewer choices for the second card, but still plenty to work with. See it come together in this video.

And here is the finished card.

Super fun, right? There’s a ton of colour and pattern on here which I know will appeal to both my client (ahem, daughter) and her friend.

Okay, I’m working on that February kit still so come back on Wednesday to see the cards I make from what I have left.

Cheers!
