Crafting with kids and Kazan's Sketch 22 at 2s4y

This week at 2sketches4you, they are celebrating Youth Art Month. They are encouraging you to craft and make a card with your kids. Today, I have my sisters kids and while I was making my card, they had the raid of my scrap pile. The two younger boys didn’t participate, they were too busy playing with the play dough and making a mess in my son’s room…

This first one is made by my little princess who just turned 5 this week……

Here is the one made by my niece Tangie who is 8 years old……

And this one is made by my nephew Kaiden who is 6 years old……

This last one is my card based upon the sketch by the extremely talented Kazan at 2s4y. This sketch was a little bit more difficult for me, again, but I finally came up with the idea for it yesterday….I didn’t get the chance to work on it until today because I went to the awesome ScrapbookUSA Expo in the Salt Lake City area and I didn’t take my scrapbooking supplies with me….I just took my baby and went to shop and visit with some of my online scrapbooking friends. I had to wait until today to get my idea down on paper, so here it is……

Cardstock: Stampin’ Up! Buckaroo Blue, Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana, Kiwi Kiss….the brown textured cardstock on the owl is Bazzill.
Ink: Stampin’ Up! So Saffron classic ink pad, Chocolate Chip classic ink pad, Garden Green Stampin’ Write marker
Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Owl Together Now set
Misc: Provo Craft Cricut with ZooBalloo and Storybook cartridges, Provo Craft Cuttlebug with embossing folders, Buttons, sewing machine and thread, Stampin’ Up! Certainly Celery twill ribbon, Uni-ball Signo white gel pen, and buttons that I inherited from my grandmother’s stash.
I hope that your weekend is going great!!


  1. This is gorgeous Amy - I love the embossing and how you interpreted the sketch. You work is always awesome! To all the kids that participated - A BIG thank you to you too. Your Daughter's card is gorgeous Amy - If you had not told me she was 8 I would have thought that an experienced adult made it - she is very talented for sure. Thanks to Tangie for making such a cute card for your mom - red flowers and pink bows are my favorite on a card. Kaiden that is the coolest X-Men card ever. I love how you made the X out of bright paper and wrote the word men - very clever.
    Thanks guys
