Happy Mother's Day! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
Recently my Stampin' Up! group (Stamp Ladies) had a card swap with the theme, Congratulations. There was a fun mix of cards from Graduation to wedding to new baby. oday's card was made by Kerri Gennett and I thought her card would be perfect one to share with you today especially for the new mom.
Cute right? But wait it is about to get a thousand times cuter!

I meant to post yesterday to start the month of right but the day got away from me.
Not sure what the proper name is for this style of card but I call it a Pull Up card. I was going to put that in the title of the post but somehow Cheerful Critters Pull Up Graduation card sounded like a different kind of graduation than I was thinking of. Anyway, I gotta scoot I have people coming over for a class in a few minutes! If you want more information about the card let me know.
Stamp with you soon,
(Saw a sneak peek of the catalog and oh my, it is a fabulous one!)
I have looked at the Stampin' Up! Retiring List a lot and I keep seeing new items that I missed before. I was surprised to see that the Gift Card Enclosure pack (136662) is on that list! Tell me it isn't true! I have made numerous note card holders with it and probably one of my favorite projects, a get well gift. These projects were posted here last year. I am sharing them again as a tribute to the versatile Gift Card Enclosure!
Remember this note card holder? I think the only thing retiring on this project is the gift card enclosure. Wait, the sentiment on the note card is from the Sumthin' Sumthin' (134525) set
On this post there is even a quick tutorial on how to score the gift card enclosure to make the holder.
Today is the day! The Retirement list is out and it is a big one. There are some AMAZING deals on the list but PLEASE remember that they are only while supplies last. Stampin' Up! will continue to make the stamp sets until May 26, 2015 BUT the accessories are while supplies last. Please keep that in mind and grab them quick! Shop early for some great deals!
I am still have a lot of cards to mail out but progress is being made! Hopefully in the next few days I will be caught up, which will make me feel much better.
Remember you can order your paper crafting supplies through my online store anytime, even in your PJs! Just click on the badge on the right side of the blog and it will take you to my store. Thank you!
Welcome to another round of the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! This month our theme is Congratulations! This year we have quite a few graduations to celebrate so I thought it would be a good idea to get started on the cards. One thing I like to do is coordinate the colors I use to the school colors. I think it makes it more personal and fun.
I was so happy that the school colors for the first graduate is purple and gold! I couldn't wait to break out the gold foil paper and gold glimmer paper.
This card fold is called a tri-shutter card and they are a LOT easier to make than they look. Here's a diagram help you.
The dotted lines are scoring and the solid are cut lines.
I was very pleasantly surprised to see that a gift card fits perfectly on one of the panels. I secured the gift card with stars and glue dots. I am so happy that I have a gift and card that will work for both male and female graduates.
Thank you for stopping by! Next person on the hop is France Martin. I know she has something really cute to share with you!
or if you can head to BJ's blog and see what fun project she has for you!
