Graduation

Hi guys. It's the end of the school year. Lots of graduations happening. A time to celebrate great accomplishments. A time to look towards the future. A time to dream -- to DREAM BIG! :)

I've had this piece of "graduation" designer paper in my scraps box for months...waiting for some inspiration. Today I finally decided to used it...and I love what I came up with. :)

I used a new Cuttlebug folder I bought recently...

and a Stampin' Up stamp from their "Happy Greetings" stamp set. I love that stamp set -- the sentiments can be used for a wide variety of cards. :)



I also added some black bling...and a cute little diploma from my stash. I like how it turned out. :)

For Dad

Hi guys. Well it's been pretty busy around here in recent weeks. Plus, the weather has been too beautiful outdoors to spend  a whole lot of time inside. :) So I'll have to show a card I made awhile back...

this is the card I made for my dad for Father's Day.

I wanted to change it up a little from the cards I've been making recently. I love the Clean and Simple look, and that's generally what my cards turn out to be. But for this card I decided to try incorporate some vellum. I have a Fiskars "Family Legacy" vellum paper sets booklet with absolutely gorgeous vellum pages. So I started with that...

Then I created a word art and printed the sentiment onto the vellum.


I added a Cuttlebugged background ...and some designer paper as well. (scraps, scraps, scraps!) :)

I used the bow-easy to create a perfect bow...(absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE that tool!!! -- it makes perfect bows every time...and it's soooooo simple to use!)

And here is my finished card:
