Graduation

Abby’s Graduation cards

Abby was blessed with many beautiful handmade graduation cards.  Abby and I appreciated each and every one.  I’m excited to share all of them with you today.

Stampin Up Graduation card made by Ruth Sollberger. Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

Inside the card Ruth put the verse Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope.”  It’s so encouraging to know God has a plan and purpose for each one of us.

Inside the card Cindy put the verse Philippians 4:8 “Whatever it TRUE. Whatever is HONEST. Whatever is PURE. Whatever is LOVELY. Think on these things.”  Such a good reminder that we do get to choose what we think about all day. I’m going to choose to have only true, honest, pure and lovely thoughts today.

First Graduation Card of the 2017 Season

What a fun day I had today!  I got to watch musical theater performances at the high school this morning.  My kids weren’t in it this time, but my friend’s daughter and other kids I know were fun to watch.  Truth be told, Broadway musicals are a passion of mine and I could happily sit and watch them for hours! I had a sweet lunch with one of my dearest friends and then a crafting session this afternoon. I used to do “Ladies Night Out” card parties all the time.  I would have up to ten gals at a time at my house and I’d have everything cut and ready to make the cards.  The problem was I would spend hours trying to “guess” what they may like to make.  It was very stressful and time consuming.  Lately, I have friends come over one or two at a time.  I do no prep work except make sure my Stamping Studio looks presentable.  I ask them what they want to make and we look at examples on the computer and other things I’ve already made in my studio and then we create something together.  Today we made Valentine candy boxes and a college graduation card.  Very fun, no stress, and everyone goes home happy because they made exactly what they wanted!  Which of my friends wants to stamp with me next?  Give me a call!

We decided to make this card a 6″ x 6″ card to have plenty of room for the “2017.”  We used the retired Stampin’ Up set Go, Graduate and some retired DSP to match Jenn’s school colors.

We also made a coordinating envelope to fit the larger card.  Now I need to make another special graduation card for Miss Abby who is graduating from high school in May!

I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend and getting some time to stamp or whatever you enjoy!

Graduation cards using Party Pop-Up Thinlits

I bet you might have gone to some grad parties recently?  We had two on Saturday night, so I whipped up a couple easy cards.  At both parties we enjoyed congratulating the graduate and their parents and we also ran into old friends we haven’t seen for awhile.  I’m so glad we were able to go.

I wanted to make cute cards without spending a lot of time because most teenagers care more about the money inside than the card itself.  These are five minute cards!  I usually make the cards in the school colors of the graduate, hence the black and orange cards.

The confetti on the inside of this card came out of the remnants of Party Pop-Up Thinlits.

Sunday we had a fun BBQ with my parents.  Afterwards we went to the party room at their Independent Living facility.  It’s a cool room with a ping pong table, pool table, TV, couches and chairs, and most importantly card playing tables.  Dad and I played as Euchre partners against my Mom and sister, Janet.  Shockingly, Dad and I lost.  Actually my Mom is a card shark so I shouldn’t be too surprised we lost.  The kids enjoyed playing ping pong, pool, and Dominoes.

Tonight Superman and I dropped Sean off at the airport.  He probably won’t be at our house again until Thanksgiving.  I was tearing up as we drove away and was busy telling Steve I wouldn’t cry.  I can’t help it I inherited my Grandma Olson’s “weepy gene.”  We are thinking about going to Seattle in the fall to visit him.  Hopefully some day Sean will live in Iowa again or at least closer than Seattle, Washington.  Hug your kids if they still live at home!

If you don’t already have a Stampin’ Up! demo, please let me know if you’d like the new 2016-17 annual catalog.  I’d love to be your demonstrator.

Do you have five minutes to spare…make a quick and easy card.  It will make you smile and the person you send it to will smile too!

Blessings,

Beth 🙂
