postheadericon Idea #7 - A Coloring Book from Digital Stamps

The Kindle light certainly helped.

 Grandma made this coloring book out of all the Kelly Kids digital stamps for me.  I love using the stamps for craft projects but for a while I have really just wanted to color them.  I love coloring books.

Here is how she did it.

1.  She created a blank page in Photoshop that was regular US Paper size, (8.5" x 11").  She put an invisible line down the middle at the 5.5" point.

2.  Then she lined up one stamp on each side and resized them so they looked good and printed out that page on white cardstock.  She printed 2 of each so my little sister would have something to color, too.

3.  She deleted those two stamps and put on two more, resized those, and printed the next page and so on and so on using all the cute Kelley's Kids we had.

4.  She wanted a cover so she left one side blank and used one of the pre-colored Kelly Kids from the Christmas set, added my name (and on the second, my sister's name) and printed the covers.

Finally she folded the pages, put the books together, and punched holes in each for ribbons. 

It sure kept us busy during the Christmas Party.

I just love the penguins and colored all of them.

Hi crafters and crafter-kids,

My name is Gabby and, actually, I am a crafter. I say “actually” a lot. I am seven years old until the end of June. I am almost 7 and a half right now.

My Grandma has tons of paper-crafting supplies and she lets me explore. Daddy used to make scrapbook pages, too, but now he is awfully busy coaching.

Grandma lets me use really sharp “detail scissors” and all kinds of other cool things she has in her craft room. I learned a lot from her that I will be passing on to you as a Creative Team Member for Wuvie’s Whimsies using her Kelly’s Kids.

I can’t wait to show you what I have been doing and sharing tips with you.

Happy Crafting,
