Graduation Time is Here!

Life has been busy as usual! We have been loving this weather! The kids have been outside almost every waking moment I will allow them. They already have their summer tans started!

I have been working on graduation cards. We have 6 graduates this year. Chris' cousins and our neghbor girl. On her card above, I used CTMH Boom Di Ada papers, and the card commentary stamp. On the inside I used the Iam set from the Tickled Pink Kit and express postage.

Here is Patrick's card. I used some extra paper I've had laying around along
with my CTMH stamps; I'm not sure of the manufacturer of these papers is. I've had them for a while! I used Vintage USA and card comentary stamp sets . The CTMH ink colors sunflower, holiday red, dutch blue and clover meadow matched these papers pretty good. I also tied a piece of sunflower waxy flax to the holiday red star and mounted the star with a foam square. Below is the inside of his card, where I used the star from the vintage USA set again and the words from the express postage set. I also used the CTMH Originals Card Confidence book for all my card patterns. I had so much fun playing with my stamps, I hope you enjoy looking!

Some artwork from the Summer Idea book

My altered item (a small baby food jar), using the Bella Paper Pack
6 X 6, 2 pg Layout, using Moon Doggie, p 20

12 X 12, 2 pg Layout using Bella , p 32

Here's a picture of all the items I made for the swap I'm in. We used the new papers in the Summer Idea Book. They are finally in the mail on the way back to me. I did 6-2 page, 12 X 12 layouts; 6- 2 page, 6 X 6 layouts and 6 altered items. In a swap you make all the same of one item, then you get to keep one, give one to the hostess and get 4 different ones back of each item. I can't wait to get my items back to see all of the artwork and the other papers! This swap was fun to do, since I only had to buy two paper packs and I will have 15 different items using all the paper packs in the new Idea Book! This is one of the wonderful perks of being a consultant. I have access to a wonderful community of other people who love to scrapbook as much as I do and we can share artwork with eachother on the Bulletin Board through Close to my Heart. As a consultant we also have access to the Artwork Bulletin Board. This is where any consultant can post their personal artwork.......I get a TON of ideas from here. It is always fun to see how someone else is using a certain stamp set or paper pack. Usually, I see something I LOVE and have to go buy another stamp set!
