Class of 2014


End-of-the-school-year greetings, friends...that time of year is quickly approaching! 
Graduation announcements will start filling our mailboxes and the scurry to find just the right
 gift for that special graduate will be upon us.  And for me, I find it a much tougher job when it
comes to buying for the guys; it's just easier to hand them a handmade card with money or a
 gift card tucked inside :) I have a couple of super cute card versions for you.
First we'll start withe the quick and easy one:

 I used one of the vertical sides from the Simply Put card and trimmed it down to the 
desired size for my A2 card.  Next, I die-cut the Tangerine Sprinkles Vellum with the 
postage stamp shape; for stability, I mounted it onto the same sized white cardstock.

The rest was as easy as layering the layers together with foam adhesive and then
decorating the banner portion of the sticker with the year of the graduate.
A little pop of orange was used on the owl's cap and we're done!

Next I have little chevron washi tape tutorial for you to make this card:
Gather up your supplies: various washi tapes...even if you only have a 
couple of colors on hand, that will work fine!  Also, a piece of cardstock cut to the
size that you need;  I've used white.

First, draw a vertical line with a pencil.  You may decide to do this down the middle
of the paper, or over to the side as I have done here.  Add a strip of washi tape just
passed the line and wrap the excess around the back of the paper.

If the washi tape has a light enough background, you will be able to use this next tip:
Press the tape over the pencil marking and rub with your finger.  Lift the tape and you
will notice a faint line on the back.  Cut on the outside of the line and then press
back into place.

Continue until the piece of cardstock has been completely covered.
Corner round the bottom edges if desired.

I added a strip of matching cardstock (that I used for the bottom mat) across
the section where the washi tapes meet.  A couple of Pixie Sticks were cut to size
and adhered with Zip-Dry glue.  I had a guy in mind for this card, so I kept the rest
of the design fairly simple and frou-frouless!

That's a wrap for my Graduate themed cards!  The Doodlebug Blog is loaded

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)

I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
