Special Card for Abe's Graduation!

I’m so proud of my nephew, Abe, who is graduating from college today!!!  His whole family moved to Roswell, NM for the year to support him- what great parents!  He’s worked very hard for this achievement! 

Here’s a picture of Abe relaxing with his buddy in the dorm!

I can’t be there, so I’m sending him my favorite card…a CARD IN A BOX!!IMG_6102  IMG_6104  IMG_6106

Isn’t that owl a hoot?!!! Ha ha ha!

I sent Abe a 3 month subscription of My Paper Pumpkin & this is what he wrote on Facebook:  “I just finish my finals and I came home and was just going to go to bed and then I get this Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail from my Auntie Cheryl.
Now I am going to make stuff. It is so great and I am feeling crafty. hahahaaa”

This is so cute & so easy to make!  You don’t even need a Big Shot (although, everyone really DOES need a Big Shot!)!  It’s made using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.IMG_4858

Cards. ‘ Tis the season for graduation cards!  This was the first one I made…trying out the new In Colors!  I really like them!  IMG_4838

But someone already requested a Baldwin HS card…so I’ve changed the colors for her.IMG_4856

Here’s the Baldwin Card.  If you’re coming to class, let me know the school colors you want to help me prep.  We aim to please!IMG_4855

The inside left has a slot for slipping in a gift card or some cash!IMG_4854

The sentiments are brand new, and you’ll see them in the new catalog (which I’ll have for my customers any day now!!)  It’s called Bravo, and has 13 cute stamps.

I’ve already shown you another card we’ll be making, but I’ll show you again:

Beautiful Blendabilities!!

I’ll come up with a simple, speedy card to go along with these.

Hope you can join us!  Let me know!

Changing Up Paper Pumpkin

IMG_4794

 

I had fun playing around with My Paper Pumpkin and decided that the “Wahoo!” was perfect for graduation.  So here’s a few ideas for you:

IMG_4796

Pear Pizzaz and Wisteria Wonder are good together, don’t you think?   IMG_4798

 

I was trying to use up some of my DSP (to make room for new!).  I used Afternoon Picnic.IMG_4799

The stamp sets are Pomp & Circumstance and the Wahoo! and You Did It! came inside my Paper Pumpkin Box, along with the card base, envelopes, mini file folder shapes, as well as some buttons & things I’ll save for later.  So simple to put together & fun to jazz up!!

If you’d like to join my Paper Pumpkin group, we meet once a month to make our kits.  It’s fun to do together and we tend to get more creative!  Try it for a month or two, if you’re not sure.  It’s easy to drop or to skip a month.  CLICK HERE TO JOIN!
