Have I ever told you before that I love posting on Saturdays?? Since I'm a stay at home mom and my husband has no work schedule at all, every day is pretty much the same!! I get bored over the weekends when a lot of my favorite bloggers don't post... I figure I can't be the only one excited to see people posting over the weekends!!
My project today is inspired by one of the release challenges over at Peachy Keen. The challenge was to include three of something, and use PK stamps, of course. This got me thinking about a little number game for Bria that I've had in my mind for a little while. I always try to find new, fun ways to teach her letters and numbers. With her help, we choose some graphics that she loved and went to work!
We used the Sea Animals for Girls set from MyGrafico...
I took out the original faces on the graphics so that I could add my own PK faces - which are soo much more cute! :) I used a variety of face assortment sets - Princess Faces, Happy Lashes and Winter Wonderland. Some of the animals only needed one eye since they are looking to the side... For these ones, I inked up my stamp then used a baby wipe to wipe off the ink (then dry the stamp) from everywhere on the stamp except the one eye. Then I stamped the eye onto my creatures. If you look close at the seahorses, I actually only wiped the ink off the mouth and nose on the stamp - the two eyes were the perfect distance apart to stamp both seahorse's eyes at the same time! I made 20 cards - 10 with creatures on them, and 10 with corresponding numbers.
I made the cards in Silhouette software and then printed them out, followed by cutting them with my cameo. I made 20 cards - all the same - with the background paper that came with the graphics set, to make the back sides of the cards. Once I had all these printed and cut, I used ATG tape to adhere a background card to a picture/number card.
I'm planning on taking these to Staples to have them laminated so that they don't get wrecked the first time she uses them!
I will also be linking this project up over at Pink Cricut's Link Up Tuesday!!
I hope you liked my project today!!! I'll be back soon with my second project for the Peachy Keen release challenges!
