Hello everybody! It’s Kuba here! Today I’m really happy to announce the results of our first challenge in the Children’s Department!
Just to refresh your memory I’m going to repeat the rules. Your task was to create a magnet that you can put on a fridge. The form and style depended on you. Actually, you didn’t have to stick to my tutorial but I hope that it was a little bit helpful for you! We received lots of gorgeous works. All of us – me and my friends from the Children’s Department – are delightful by your creativity and precision! Nobody knows how many creative and skillful kids who love playing with paper are in the world!
We chose the winner in the top secret voting of the jury: I- Kuba, second Kuba, Austin, Hayden, Braylee, Maitlyn and Róża. We are sorry for the fact that there can be only one winner, because we would like to have the chance to prize all of your works!
And now, can you here the bells? So loudly and with a great joy I’d like to announce, that the first Winner of the Children’s Department Challenge is:
~~ KUBA ŁABNO AGED 5
And his fantastic train magnet!!
Here are some words from Kuba:
Hello! My name’s Kuba and I’m almost 5 years old (my birthday is on 26 October). That’s why my mum is writing this letter on my behalf.
I love watching my mum playing with her papers. Once, I asked her to let me join her and she agreed. She gave me some papers and punchers and then I made my first ATC.
There was also an album that we did together for a competition organized in my kindergarden and some other works. So, when my mum suggested to create a magnet I followed her idea. My mum let me choose the papers. I loved those with the monsters. Together we decided on the shape. My mum prepared the train with two cars from the cardboard and I traced them on the paper (my mum had to hold them because they were moving.) Than I cut out the cars and my mum cut out the locomotive and the wheels. Then she gave me an ink and asked me to distress the edges. It took a long time. Next I stuck the magnets to the cardboard and then to the paper. I added the wheels and titles with a small help of my mother. And now – the best part of the work – my mum gave me the boxes with her buttons and ribbons and I could choose some of them! I showed my mum where she should put on the glue. After doing this she had to take care of my younger brother who wanted to help us at all costs. In the meanwhile I drew some more circles and decided to add more buttons. Finally I put five buttons on every car – five because of my age and I want to let everybody know how old I am. If I make such a train when I’ll be six, I’ll add six buttons then. Now, my train is ready!
My mum took a photo of this train and later we put it on the fridge. Adaś wanted to take it off of course!
I enclose some photos taken during making the train and some of the train itself.
Congratulations! Your work is really exceptional! Please, send us a title of the TSC collection that you’d like to get as a reward and don’t forget to write your postal address. Write to email@example.com and Karola will send you your prize as soon as possible.
I would also like to say that all the works you’ve sent to us will be published in a special post. They definitely deserve this! So, visit our blog as often as you can, we will prepare a beautiful gallery with the competitive projects!
But it’s not all. I have some more things to show!
In spite of the fact that the school year has begun we don’t idle! Let’s see what Kubuś – Maja’s -our designer’s son has created!
This is a breathtaking and perfectly done birthday card for his greatgrand mother. She is going to be ninty!! What a beautiful age!
And here you can see my latest work.
I introduce you a door hanger or a tag which is so ideal for autumn and even against the blues. The depression is not allowed to enter! I made this using the „Summer at the Seaside” from the ScrapCake collection. I used „Travel notes” paper. I gave it to one nice Lady, who is so afraid of the blues. She even started a travel journal called „Brighten the Autumn Blues”. I made a small contribiution to her journal as well. I think that such a present – to hang on the door – my brighten her days. What’s more it’s hidden in that travel journal! If anybody wants to see what I’ve done in her journal, please visit my blog. I’d be happy if you drop by! You need a good mood to drive the depression away, so I wish you have only a positive feelings not only during autumn!
I’d like to show you a wreath too. I’ve made it lately. It doesn’t need much time to do this so I think, that everybody my create such a decoration for himself. I used the roses cut out from the „Bright Side of Life” paper from The ScrapCake collection. You’ll find a tutorial on my blog. I hang my wreath on the hallway door to welcome the guests. I’ve got the plan to make more wreaths! This one is perfect for summer but it’s so windy and gloomy today that I have to think about an autumn wreath
And that’s all for today in our Kids Department. Thank you for your visit and feel welcome to stopover soon.
Have a good day,
