Graduation Card

Hello there………
I’m here with a card I made for the Scrapbook Pal DT.  I’ve chosen to make a graduation card for the daughter of one of my besties.  She just recently graduated from college with her teaching degree and already has a job teaching 4th grade.  :-)
I cut my varying layers of patterned paper from the Crate Paper School Spirit stack and inked with Spiced Marmalade
The stack of books is a stamp from the Pink By Design School is Cool stamp set.  I colored them with Distress Markers and cut them out with my oh-so-awesome Tim Holtz scissors.  I cut the apple from the Locker Talk Cricut Cartridge, added Stickles to the pieces and popped it up on the card.
Crate Paper is her favorite  paper line, so I hope she likes it…………  :-)
For this project, I used the following products, available for purchase at Scrapbook Pal……and don’t forget FREE SHIPPING over $25! 

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Baby Boy Banner


I hope your summer has been just as beautiful as it has been in Texas!  We’ve had mild temperatures compared to this time last year when we were probably at about 45 days worth of temperatures over 100 degrees by this time in 2011.  Last summer was HOT, DRY and MISERABLE!!  I’m loving the “mild” 90’s we’ve been having!  ;-)

Anyway………….this is a baby boy banner I made for my husband’s cousin, who is due to have her first baby – a boy.  They are a super, super sweet family, so I hope they like it! 

Their nursery is in owls, with brown, blue, yellow and orange, so I incorporated some of those colors on the scallop circles and the letters. I just love this owl! Isn’t he just the cutest!!!

Here is a shot of the front side of the banner. The baby’s name is Beau James, in case you can’t tell. ha!


This is a shot of the back side of the same banner.  I made it reversible, in case they want to use it at the baby shower or something…….  :-)


These are the products I used on this project.  If you click on the links, you’ll be taken to the product on the Scrapbook Pal website, where you can shop their awesome selection of scrapbook products!  And……….you get FREE SHIPPING over $25!  So, what are you waiting for?  GO SHOPPING!  ;-)

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time……………

Back to school…



I sure hope your first week of school has gone smoothly and that your children love their teacher(s)!  :-)

So, for today’s project, I have joined in on a challenge with cut files from My Scrap Chick.  The challenge was to create a card using the Card Essentials Vol 2 collection.  This project is also my card for the Scrappy Frogs DT, which is “Back To School”. 

I created this card for my oldest daughter, who is a big SENIOR this year!  I’m not sure what to think about that!  I’m happy for her, but very sad for me that she’s almost grown……  :-/

Thanks for stopping by today!
