Stamping With Kids: My 4-Year-Old's Scrapbooking Process Video


I have an exciting announcement to make, and then have a fun video to share with you of my daughter using two stamp sets to make a 6"x6" scrapbook page.

My exciting news is that I have decided to come "out of hibernation" with my Close to my Heart business. For the last several years I have focused on having/raising my babies and although I have remained a CTMH Consultant thanks to the amazing customers and business I had built before having kids, I have decided that since my kids are not "babies" anymore, I am going to devote more time to my business now. I have missed it! I especially love the new seasonal catalog that just came out. You can check it out here >

Ok, now for this fun video. You are going to crack up! My daughter, Kailyn (age 4) loves crafting with me (I am so proud!) and over the weekend I decided to record her stamping and creative "process" for her scrapbook page. (I shortened it A LOT so as not to bore you, but kept all the good parts!) (View on YouTube or below.)

She has her own 6"x6" scrapbook album and has been into scrapbooking for the past 6 months or so. I taught her how to stamp a few months ago and it took her a little while to get the hang of it. She's a perfectionist (not unlike me!) and would get frustrated if the image didn't stamp "perfectly." We hadn't practiced in a while but last night she had it DOWN! I'm so proud! It's been fun to watch her skills and creativity grow.

Isn't it amazing to watch kids' creative/thought processes? They often come up with stuff that we adults wouldn't even imagine. Like foxes, robots, space ships, and superman for a photo of her in an Elsa princess dress at the park. LOL! Gosh I love this kid! :) :)
