The Craft's Meow Sneak Peak- I've Got Your Number

Hi again!  Thanks for popping over my way!  I have another set from The Craft's Meow, releasing on Monday, called I've Got Your Number.  This set, designed by Kaitlyn Ord, is in a word, awesome.  It is graphic and grunge, as well as oh so practical.  To be honest, I can't stop using it.  I have put it on scrapbook pages and cards, as well as other projects.  This set is seriously versatile.


In my quest to think outside the box with my stamps, I came up with a great way to utilize those fabulous numbers...a flash card set!  I have a soon to be four year old who loves to learn.  He is all about recognizing numbers, and I thought this would be a great way to help him do just that.


To start, I took white cardstock and cut my pieces down to 2 1/2 x 3/12.  I then took patterned papers from the Boarding Pass Collection by October Afternoon and adhered strips to the cards and rounded all of the corners.


I then took my numbers and stamped all the way up to twenty on the cards, adding a little flourish included in the set as well as some die cut stars.  I also stamped an image from Telegram, punched out the middle image (star) with a 1/2 inch circle punch and adhered that on most of the cards.


Jonathan loves them and wants to use them all of the time, so all the time and effort put into them was well worth it.  Tomorrow is the last preview and then these goodies will be available...squeal!  lol!

In addition to the flash cards, I also incorporated the stamps onto a scrapbook page!


Adding a bunch of stickers and die cut elements, I incorporated some misting as well as stamping .   I took the stamp and inked it up as is, then stamped it onto the corner of my page.


I  also used the "happy" stamp and stamped it along the top of the misted portion of the page.


Thank you so much for scrolling through all of the pics!  I hope you were inspired and are getting excited about this release!

  15. I love the flash cards and scrapbook page. What great ways to use the numbers stamps. I too have a 4 year old, and I agree, they are like little sponges and want to soak up any information they can.

  16. Great use of the number on the flashcards. I guess you can even go farther if you wanted and add math equations when the time comes.

    Lovely layout. I like the use of the numbers as an embellishment.

  17. The flash card idea is inspirational....put it together with a couple of punch atr "+,-,x" etc and I may be able to get Miss 7 mathematically motivated. Thanks for sharing a brilliant idea. The page makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
