Dream Journals with children in Las Vegas Nevada by Willie Perdon and Sherrill Graff

Most of the children left before I remember to pull out my camera but I wanted to share with you photos from 2 of our events. This first photo means a lot to Willie and I. She had children begging to help cut out extra top note dies. These girls stayed an extra 1/2 of hour to help us punch out butterflies. You could see they had big hearts!
Such nice girls and so polite too!
We were so glad to give them a fun craft to make, they really enjoyed it.
The first event we did we had 40 participants all 3-11 years old.
(The first photo above was from the second event we did) The second event we had about 20 participants. They boys really had a hard time putting butterflies on their dream journals until we talked about how butterflies used to be caterpillars, then they were ok with it.
The third group of kids were the most well off. You could see by their clothes that this group lived in a nicer part of town. All the children were very polite saying thank you when they were done. It's such a blessing to be able to share what we have with others. I'm thankful for so many stampin up demonstrators who took the time to cut top note dies for these journals for the kids. We could not have done it without you! I am also very thankful for each of you who came and helped us share this project with the children. Bless you for all you do for others!

Hope you enjoy these photos and they give you ideas to do with kids in your area. I know that the ones who needed it the most really hated to see us leave. They were having so much fun!!!!

May God bless you and your family,

Dry embossing is the term used to describe the raised effect in paper or light cardstock which is achieved using a brass or plastic stencil and an embossing stylus.CJSketchchallenge007.JPG.jpeg
These butterflies were embossed using the Big Shot and a sizzix embosslits die by Mary Brown.
It's fun and EASY

Heat embossing is an entirely different technique and uses special powders applied to wet ink which are then gently heated using a heat tool until they melt. Once the molten powder cools it forms a raised surface.
Stamp Assembly
Trim rubber close to image. Make straight cuts.
Match rubber to correct blocks. Trim and apply labels.
Apply rubber, matching position of rubber with label.
Apply label with stamp set name to the end of the box.

Many of our stamp sets are now die cut to make it even easier and faster to start stamping. For die cut stamp sets, you'll still get to place the images however you like on the block, you just won't need to cut the rubber for these sets. Look for the die cut logo, which indicates whether the set is die cut.
Clear-Mount Rubber Stamp Features
  • Nine different sizes of clear blocks available individually or as a discounted bundle.
  • Blocks have ergonomic grooves on all four sides for easy grip and traditional wood-mount feel.
  • Stamps and blocks are durable and easy to clean with your Stampin' Scrub and Stampin' Mist.
  • Optional image labels on stamp backs let you decide if you want to see the image through the block or not.
  • Tight die-cutting for easy image positioning.
  • Large clear blocks can be used to create collages or spell words with alphabet sets.
  • Stamps store easily in standard, DVD-type cases with artwork on front and spine, making organization easy.
$2 for every stamp set sold goes to Haiti!

Have a creative day,
