Graduation Scrapbook for Aimee

Last month I helped design album pages for my granddaughter's graduation album (a surprise from her Mom). Aimee likes Vintage things and the theme for her graduation party was Dr. Suess.  So, we took the colors from a paper stack Aimee had, (well, we actually took the whole pad!) and incorporated it into the album pages along with the Dr. Suess theme.  Here are some of the vintage pages.

You don't see where I used the die, because it is hidden by the "Graduation Cap" .

Graduation and Bright Blossoms Mini Album

New catalog is out and boy do I have a lot of catching up to do on my blog.  I have been taking pictures of cards/projects I have been creating (most of the time) now I just need to get them on my blog. I was in Virginia for a week to go to my niece's wedding on June 2nd (yup, just when the new Stampin' Up! catalog ordering started!)  Then came home in time for my grandson's high school graduation and party.  So now back to business. The directions for this card came from the Stampin' Up! demonstrator site. Thank you, Stampin' Up!

Here is a picture of the card I made for my grandson:

I made it with Word Play and his school colors, black and orange.  Love how it turned out. Here is the matching envelope:

Next is a project we made at my Hostess Appreciation party and Club party.  I used Bright Blossoms and Loving Thoughts stamp sets and  Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper for this Mini Album:

Hope you enjoy these items and please ask if you have any questions.  If you are a demo, the basic graduation card is shown in a Stampin' Up! video on the Demo site.  The mini album inspiration came from an album Kimberly Van Diepen did for Christmas last year.  Hope you are enjoying the new Stampin' Up! catalog.  Don't have one?  Ask me how to get yours free!

Create a Cupcake Stamp Set or Build a Cupcake Punch?

For the next few posts, I will be featuring the Create a Cupcake stamp set and/or the Build a Cupcake Punch. The pictures are samples from the display board at Leadership close up. I have cropped to highlight a single card. The first is a wire tree with cupcakes instead of leaves. So cute in real life and I had a hard time with the lighting on it, however, you will get the idea!

Stampin' Up! also had a real neat display of all the Occasions Mini sets and SAB sets in both clear and wood (and the French and Spanish versions as well). I didn't realize until I returned home to look at my photos that some of my pictures had a different language! Here is the Create a Cupcake set:

This cute box was demonstrated on stage, I believe. Someone correct me if this is not correct!

Always Thinking of You Card

This card was made with scraps left over from other cards. The top stenciled piece was left over from one of the cards in my Elegant Stencil Trio Class that I am teaching later this month and the bottom was from a blog post on Monday It's a Thought. I used a left over piece of Marina Mist card stock as well. As you probably have gathered by this card, I hate to throw anything out! Get out those scraps and see what you can make.
