Hello! I know many of you have kiddos in your life that enjoy crafting with you. So today my 7-year-old, Lila, joined me in my video to share fun ideas for creating WITH kids!

I am a big believer in bringing kiddos into your craft room! I like to teach them how to use different products and HAVE FUN. After all… what a great hobby for kids to get into! Lila joins me for parts of my video today.
In part of the video, we show a few simple card designs using many fun, tiny embellishments from Trinity Stamps. They have a great assortment, including jewels, clay pieces, and wood shapes. I love the clay pieces! You can see them all HERE at Trinity Stamp or HERE at Simon Says Stamp.
Our cards are very simple! They are 3 1/2″ x 5″ each. We used THESE 4 bar envelopes and stamped on them with the Trinity Stamps Mr Snailman Stamp Set (SSS | TS). On most of them, we added a scallop border that we cut from a Trinity Stamps Narrow Card & Bookmark (SSS | TS) die cut.
Aren’t those pandas cute? The paper scrap is from the My Favorite Things Black and White Stripe Paper Pack.
Here is another using the same products.
Oh my cuteness! 🙂
Although we used lots of tiny clay embellishments today, you could also use tiny stamped images, die cuts, jewels, buttons, etc.
Lila wants to send this one to our friend Lydia. 🙂
There are many different themes you can do with these cards. The cute flowers on the right are from the Trinity Stamps Fondant Florals Mix.
And by the way, kids love digging through my patterned paper scrap drawer. And scraps are great for this card design!
We plan to make more cards using the ‘i love you” sentiment from the Trinity Stamps Picture Sentiments Stamp Set (SSS | TS) along with tiny Trinity Stamps Patchwok Hearts embellishments. After all, these can be sent for any occasion.
I love the detail in these embellishments.
These two cards feature the sentiments from the Trinity Stamps Fairy Wonderful Stamp Set (SSS | TS) and Trinity Stamps Caffeinated Sentiment Stamp Set (SSS | TS)… along with Trinity Stamps Funfetti Love (SSS | TS) and Trinity Stamps Rainbow Stars (SSS | TS).
While Lila was at VBS, I made this card for my friend Gina. The message is perfect for her! It is from the Trinity Stamps Succulent Sparkle Stamp Set (SSS | TS) and features Trinity Stamps Cinnamon Red Hots.
During our crafty day, Lila and I also made a bunch of bookmarks for family members. She has two grandparents with cancer, so these will be nice gifts for them. We used the Trinity Stamps Narrow Card & Bookmark (SSS | TS) to create the bookmarks and added images from the fun Trinity Stamps Picture Sentiment Stamp Set (SSS | TS). These are so fun!
The bookmarks say “eye love ewe”… “owl pray for ewe”… and “tank-full four ewe.” So cute!
We stamped the key on the back. Be sure to watch the video to see how we made the bookmark to slide over a page and stay in place.
Thanks for joining us! Lila had fun doing this video.
