Scrapping with Your Kids, Simply Betty Stamps, SOS and Layout Share

Do you scrap with your kids? I do! Not all the time but I do let them join in on the fun once in a while. When I have a project due or I am on a time schedule, I don't invite them to scrap with me because I usually have to stop to help Emma, my 7 year old, either cut something, find an embellie or help her glue something down. Victoria, my 10 year old, is much different. She has no problem finding exactly what she needs and gets busy. Last week Emma had a playdate at her girlfriend's house so Victoria and I decided to play with stamps. I have never been a good embosser (still not even after playing with it over an hour that day - lol), so we tried using glitter and flocking with a glue pad. We both enjoyed working with those embellishments and decided that flocking is our new fav.

The other day, I came home to find that Victoria had made 2 layouts using stamps, flocking, coloring and brads. They are cute beginner pages! I am so happy that she is interested in this exciting hobby. She can explore her own way of scrapping over time and grow with it.

The first layout I am sharing is one that she has made using 3 stamps from Simply Betty Stamps from the Emo Kids line (Lola, Rio and London) Simply Betty Stamps is a brand new stamp company and has come out with really creative stamps and digis. The day I received the Emo Girls in the mail, my girls went crazy choosing their favorite. Victoria made this layout of her and her sisters with their favorite Emo Girls to the left of their picture. She chose some Halloween colors, pictures from 2 years ago, bat punch and some stickles to write the work "imagine". I think she did a great job coloring and cutting out the stamped images. She cuts them out better then me. lol You can check out all the awesome stamps and digis with a ton of DT inspiration at

Here is a quick card that I made using Lola:

The second layout I am sharing is a layout that Victoria has created using brads. This falls in line with the challenge at for July. July's challenge is to use brads/eyelets on your creation to have a chance to become a GDT for September. We are also featuring new sketches each month.

This is my take on the sketch where I also used blue eyelets, which was featured on SOS on July 14:
