A Little note from Nana

Hi everyone, welcome to Maddie & Nana's Place. This blog is for Maddie. She has been scrapbooking for almost a year. She wanted her own blog so that she could enter challenges just like her Nana. She is learning to do everything crafty by herself. Maddie has her own ideas, her own "stuff" including my old cuttlebug. My daughter has been scrapbooking for years and now her oldest loves it too. She wants to do her own computer input so please be patient. Nana spoils her and she has been playing on our PC for a while. She loves YouTube and only needs a little help with spelling. At least she will allow me to help, even if it's only to tell her how to do it. She always wants to do it herself. She mastered my ATG gun in no time..lol We hope to have fun together.

Happy Birthday Card for Oma

Note from Nana:  Happy happy joy joy...we are all in full blown summer mode now!  Maddie is still enjoying her summertime fun...boating..friends.  How fun it is to be a kid!  I can hardly believe school will start up again in less than a month Yikes!  I guess she will be posting soon enough.  A Nana's  job is never done..lol

Maddie made this card for Oma, which means Grandma.  Oma is what everyone calls my mother.  So this Birthday card is for her Great Grandmother who will turn 95 years young.  When my mother had me she was old enough to be my grandmother...Guess I was a real surprise. 

Once again Maddie did the entire card by herself.  I alway's give positive advise when she is done.  Maddie will rarely change anything once it is adhered.    She is learning all the time.  She already knows a few golden rules, click my Copic's shut, clean the stamps right away and close the ink pads asap...hehehe.   I am always astonished by her vision of what she wants her cards and lay outs to look like.  Of course she wanted to use my Copic's...at least she asked this time!  I am very proud of  her.  Maddie has a good eye for design and great potential.  It's a little hard to truly just let her go.  I had gotten used to making gentle suggestions, and helping just a tad..guess those day's are gone! 

This is also Maddie's DT card for "Anything Goes" Challenge 6 at Kona Kid Krafter's.  She used this cute little Kitty Play Digi by Robyn's Fetish at the New and Improved Stitchy Bear & I Did It Creations Crafting Boutique.  Yes it is a mouthful!  They are wonderful, fantabulous sponsors and are having a spontaneous END OF THE SUMMER CREATOR SALE!

We entered this playful little card into the following challenges:

Everything came from Nana's Stash except the Blue Stickles & Party Ribbon.  Here's what Maddie used to create her card:
  • Kitty Play Digi, by Robyn's Fetish Stitchy Bear Stamps
  • Happy Birthday Stamp (not sure which one she used)
  • Copic Markers
  • Orange & Blue Stickles
  • Gel Pen
  • 5 Orange Buttons with Orange Stickles on them
  • Funky Scissors
  • Ink, sponge
  • Various shaped punches & corner rounder
Thanks for looking, Maddie truly loves her comments!
