Blue Ribbon Graduation cards

Hello Stampers!  I hope you all are enjoying your long Memorial Day weekend!  This is such a busy time of year for everybody with the end of the school year, graduations, confirmations, etc.

I had a friend order some graduation cards from me, and since I love the Blue Ribbon stamp set (w-131964 c-125981) more and more every time I use it, I thought I would give it a try for graduation cards!  How do you think it turned out?

P1140128-001 I love them!  I like that I can color them to coordinate with the school colors too!  And they are great for masculine cards as well.  Here is an up close look:

P1140129-001 If you don't have this stamp set yet, you really should get it!  It is fun to play with and great for masculine cards too!

Dress Up Framelit treat box

Hello Stampers!  Well, it's the end of the school year again, so that means making end of the year teacher gifts!  This is what I made for the female teachers this year:

P1140123-001I have seen these cute little boxes in several places, so I thought I needed to try some!  Although it looks like my dress has a tail, it is the tag from a Hershey's kiss, which is in the box part.  To make this box, I folded my cardstock in half and put the fold just inside the sholders of the Dress Up Framelit die (130101), so that it would open up and stay attached at the sholder.  Then I made a small box to put inside.  It holds 4 Hershey kisses just perfectly!

Here is the dress box with a tux box!

P1140124-001 So sorry to see the candy wrapper die retiring!  Wouldn't these make super cute shower favors, wedding fabors, first communion or confirmation party favors, etc!  WOW the possibilities!!!

Don't forget, there is only just over a week left to be able to order retiring merchandise!  The retiring stamp sets will all be available until June 3rd.  The retiring accessories will only be available while supplies last!  Many items are gone already, so time is of the essence!

My Digital Studio project and downloads

Hello Stampers!  Welcome to My Digital Studio Tuesday!  Well, my summer has finally started!  Friday was my last day of preschool, graduation was Sunday and Monday, and today was our school picnic!  Now my summer has begun!

I've decided over the summer that I'm going to spend more time learning and creating on My Digital Studio!  So, why not start today!  The new trick I learned today, was how to split a photo between multiple photo boxes!  Take a look:

Best buds-001

Isn't that a fun look?  To create this look, you just add multiple photo boxes, I did three, and then arrange them and group them.  Then when you add the photo, it will add it to all of the boxes!  Too fun!
