The last few weeks have brought a lot of changes to our household but all of the good. Our oldest started Kindergarten, I can't believe these last almost 6 years have flown by as fast as they have. Clara is an absolutely wonderful kid and super creative. I thought, let's teach this big girl how to scrapbook!

Clara was all for stepping up to the task. While I am very excited that Clara has obtained her creative bug from me, she also obtained the "I can figure it out myself" gene. It still startles me to see so much of myself in her.
Step 1) Organize the pictures on the 12x12 page. In this case, we are doing a two page spread.
|Step 2) Picking out the stamp sets|
- Elementry Essentials
- Bold Butterfly - this is the stamp set we used to decorate the cardboard house
- Rich RazzleDazzle
- Melon Mambo
- Crushed Curry (Retired)
|Step 3) Stamping and getting to work|
Step 4) Creating a Title
I gave Clara a few options and she went with "Coloring Crazy". She assembled all the pieces after I stamped the letters for her. I used this AWESOME set that got me started using Stampin' Up. It is a very old set called: AlphaBuilder.
Step 5) Assemble! We laid everything out together and I gave her some tape and let her go to work. She took her time assembling the page and when it was done it looked amazing! She wanted to embellish one area with flowers and I let her take over. I think it came out great!
