October Get Kids Crafty Blog Hop

Hello and thank you for visiting us for the Get Kids Crafty! October blog hop! This month our theme is Thanksgiving! The leaves are turning, there’s a chill in the air, and pumpkin spice is popping up everywhere! It’s the time of year when we think in warm colors and remember what we are most thankful for! The team and their kids have worked hard to create projects to share with you! Click through all the links to get some Thanksgiving project inspiration and then get crafty yourself! We would LOVE to see your creations! You can post them in our Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/getkidscrafty/), tag us on Instagram (@getkidscrafty), or use our hashtag #getkidscrafty to share your projects! Here's what my daughter and I came up with.

She decided to start making place cards for Thanksgiving dinner. She has a ton of ideas, and may wind up making them all different! We decided to start with 2, and then go on from there.

For both place cards, she used patterned paper from DCWV, plain 110 lb. cardstock from Recollections in cream, Fitted Frames from Stampendous, Memento Markers (her absolute favorites!) and Orange You Glad Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground.

She really didn't need help putting this project together at all. I gave her some suggestions, but she made all of the final decisions, did all of the die cutting and gluing, plus all of the writing. She is really proud of them and looking forward to making the rest.

Here she is hard at work in my craft room, applying her Sparkle Blends.

I love how they coordinate but aren't matchy-matchy. I love the little Fimo pieces she added to each of them. I love that she is proud of her work. This is what Get Kids Crafty is all about. Showing them how to make things, allowing the kids to be creative, and having their pride shine though their projects. I cannot wait to see the rest of her place cards!

Below is the full hop list. Please be sure to stop by each blog and leave the kids some love. Thanks so much for visiting me. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
