Well, I’m officially a mother of a teenage daughter—yikes! My daughter is turning 13 this month. And to celebrate this fine moment, we agreed to let her have 5 friends over for a slumber party. I may live to regret this decision but in the meantime, we’ve had fun planning and making invitations together this past weekend.
Like any good crafter, I had Sage, my daughter, turn to our upcoming Card Design Handbook to pick out an inspiration card. She chose Courtney Kelley’s Foxy Friend Card on pg. 47 because she apparently adores foxes.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any foxes in my stamp collection. (I need to rectify this soon!) So we found the next best thing—a gnome from Lawn Fawn’s Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp collection. So cute!
Once we had all of our paper picked out and stamps identified we got down to crafting business. I stamped and cut. . . .
Sage colored and glued. . . .
The cuteness factor of this stamp collection had both of us making all sorts of embarrassing squeals and giggles while we were creating. (Please tell me I’m not the only one that does this.) I guess it got kind of loud because the husband and brothers kept dropping by wondering what we were up to.
Here’s the final invite. Pretty cute stuff if you ask us.
The best part of the whole thing was being able to spend time with my daughter creating something together. Now I just need to survive a gaggle of giggling 13-year-old girls.
Wish me luck!
P.S. Thanks to Lawn Fawn, I happen to have two Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp sets to give away. Leave a comment here by Thursday, August 9th at 5 pm MDT, and I will randomly choose two people to win!
