Best Graduation

Here is another graduation card I put together.  We all have that great Best Day Ever designer series paper from Sale-a-bration so I though I would share how I put some of it to use!  

The Celebrate Today stamp set has some really fun images and I am glad there was a graduation stamp included too.

Pretty quick to put together as well as colorful and fun.

Prayer Rocks

Each year as the Sunday School classes come to a close, the teachers give the students a little something.  I have helped make some items to add to the gifts the last few years and this year my portion is a Prayer Rock card.  There will also be little rocks given with them, but I didn't have one to add to the picture.  

I found the prayer online and added some stamped images from Mother's Love before attaching it to some Bermuda Bay card stock.

I thought it was a great thing for the kids to receive.

Happy Day!

In the last year or so, I have gone from 2 page layouts to 1 page for most things I scrapbook.  If the event is one with tons of pictures, I will do the 2 page layout once in awhile though.

For this layout, I used a piece of Color Me Autumn designer series paper as my background and added a strip of it to the front as well.

My title is from Starburst sayings and is cut out with the Starburst framelit.  I added some stamped images from Kinda Eclectic and Truly Grateful as well.

I have a video to share with you featuring this month's Paper Pumpkin kit before I share a card with you! 

A Paper Pumpkin subscription would be a great graduation or Mother's Day gift!!
And on to the card (not related to the Paper Pumpkin kit, those ideas will come later!!).
It will soon be graduation time again and I thought I better get some cards made while I have a chance!  These are created with the Pomp and Circumstance stamp set and I chose Perfect Plum, Lost Lagoon, Pistachio Pudding and Whisper White for my colors.

The circle is embossed with the Decorative Dots folder and my sentiment is punched out with the Note Tag punch.  I added a 2014-5016 In Color button from Sale-a-bration as well.

This and That Journals

I thought I would share some Prayer Journals today because these This and That journals are on the Retiring Accessories list and are also 50% off.  They are great for these journals that I make for confirmation student, just for jotting down reminder, a daily journal, a fun scrap book or whatever you like. 

They all have a pocket with some envelopes for special things and the pages are all designer paper (tons of different patterns).

So, don't miss out on them!  They are available while supplies last...

I always add different prayers, verses, sayings, song lyrics etc. to the inside.  Then I add some stamped images or stamped verses as well.

    To finish off the series of Just Kidding cards, I have two simple layouts for you today.  The first uses a strip of Sweet Taffy designer series paper and some stamped images from the Petal Potpourri stamp set in the background.

    The second has some stamped images from the Painted Petals stamp set in Lost Lagoon ink.

    Just Kidding Birthday 2

    Ok, we are back to the Just Kidding samples - just two more days of them and then we will move on (for now, LOL!).  

    I again have used a This Day Project Life mini card collection piece as a background for the top layer and added some Sale-a-bration buttons as well.

    Nobody Loves...

    We will take a little break from the Just Kidding stamp set samples :)  This one uses the Mother's Love stamp set that is in the Occasions catalog and some Moonlight designer series paper.

    I like to add angled layers sometimes and on this one I used the same mat color for both layers - Blackberry Bliss.  Some of the fun thick baker's twine from Sale-a-bration and a basics hodgepodge clip finishes it off.
