The Stamp Spot Blog Hop!



Welcome to the first Stamp Spot Blog Hop!
This weekend, we'd love to share with you some inspiration for this months craft challenge (kids) , and also a chance to win some awesome prizes!  At each stop along the way, read the post carefully, as each blog will have a fun question for you to answer... (ie. What are your families traditions at Easter?) Answer the question to go in the draw for the prize from each blog! 
If you've come from Annmaree's Blog, you're on the right track, if not, head to The Stamp Spot blog, and start from the beginning!
So here is my project! I wanted to make something that was interactive, for primary school kids... So, I made up this little card and pencil kit -
 
I started out, stamping Kraftin' Kimmie stamp - Goldilocks, in black ink, then doodled around the border (of course). The patterned paper in the background is from My Minds Eye, My Girl 6x6 patterned paper pad. I then added a mft die-namic, and popped some alphabet stickers from Sassfras and the "You" is from Alley Way Stamps. The tag is covered in the left over patterned paper, and some washi tapes and threaded with some awesome Twine and a little teddy coloured with my Spectrum Noirs. The little pencils have been wrapped in twine, and washi tape too!
Here is a close up -
Here is the list of participants - 
Jess D (you are here!)
Here is the question you need to answer here (I have comment approval on, so it might be a few minutes before your comment shows up)
When you were a child, did you do the Easter Egg hunt? If you have your own kids, do you hide the Easter Eggs? 

Next on the list is the lovely Sandra  at Sandra's Stamping Spot!
Good luck!

Lovely work Jess. I can't remember what we did as children. I used to have an Easter egg hunt for my girls and now we go to my daughter's place after church and both my daughters hid eggs in the back yard for my grand daughters to have an Easter egg hunt.

This is a great idea as an alternative to chocolate! Well done! We used to do Easter egg hunts when my son was little. I miss doing them so I may just have my own little hunt this year (is that cheating?) :) xx

Samantha Kaminski said...

Yes I did a easter egg hunt when I was little :)
and still do though my little one (6months) is too young at the moment we generally get together and do one for his cousins and as our bubs gets older he too will be able to participate :)

Didn't do an easter egg hunt with my girls, but do with my youngest granddaughters. Great idea to colour your card.

What a fantastic idea!! I rreally love this for a gift!!! I don't really remember if we did an easter egg hunt as a kid but my kids do at my mum's house and mum hides all the eggs while we wait outside..!! HUgsxx

What an adorable colouring project. Love the use of washi tape. I did chocolate easter egg hunts in our house. We do the same with our kids.

Great idea for a card. We used to do an Easter Egg hunt for our son but when I was little we all went camping.

What a cute project. A lot of effort.

We did have an easter hunt growing up. And now I have my own we have one in the morning with just the 4 children and later at lunch time we do another with anywhere upto 20 children. When we do a hunt with large numbers everything goes in a pile and it gets divided evenly - not fair if the older kids get more than the little ones.

What a fun and creative idea!! Love it!! Love the adorable stamp you used!!
Yes we had Easter egg hunts growing up and we hide them for our daughter she loves to hunt for them!

What a fantastic idea! My grandkids would love this.

When I was a kid we use to dye our eggs and decorate them. Then when Easter came all of us cousins would go to grandma's house, hide the eggs and then we would all have to go find each other's eggs. It was great fun.
