We have some friends whose daughter, Laura, has just graduated from high school. I made Laura this 2008 graduation scrapbook. She absolutely loved it especially since it was in her school colors. I took a class to make this book from my good friend Rhonda who is just an awesome scrapbooker. The card was from one that I saw on Splitcoast, so if you are reading this I am giving you credit. (Can't remember where I saw it on the site). The bag is done using the Cricut. Enjoy the video.
The word has been getting around and everyone at work wants my cards. Next year they want me to create a catalog for them to order from. Looks like I will be busy this summer!! Here are two cards that I made for my awesome co-worker Millie for her to give. Another graduation card using the Cricut and a rubber stamp.(can't remember whose cap that is).

These 3 cards were created using 3 Whipper Snapper stamps that I purchased as a result of winning 3rd place in their Spring contest.
This first card uses SU Pretty in Pink; soft sky; certainly celery; and a SU DP (sorry I can't remember the name). It was colored in with PinP and cc using a blender pen. Brads are cc also and I also used thecuttlebug Swiss dot template.
The second card is done using Soft Sky; Purely Pomegranate; and Wild Wasabi. Just love that color combo!!!! The border stamp above was from a very "old" company called D.O.T.S. I colored in the quilt using my blender pen and then stamped the quilt again on soft sky and cut out the flowers. I found these shiny brads in my stash that just happen to match perfectly! The saying was done on the computer using CK Quirky font. The quilt is also popped up.
This last card is my favorite! I just love anything birds! I used Blue Bayou; Pumpkin Pie: and Wild Wasabi. The background was a Background stamp that I purchased unmounted at a recent stamp expo. Sorry, I can't remember who I bought that from! The flowers were punched out and stickles were added to the centers as well as the center of the leaves. Inside the card says "Happy Spring" Great card for my friends back East.
