This easel card was made for a graduation, but it would be appropriate for any "congrats" occasion. I used the CTMH stamp set Butterfly Kisses. A judge I work with thought the three white brads holding the easel in place were aspirin I glued down. Then he suggested I make an over the hill card and glue on Viagra pills...

A friend asked me to make a bunch of graduation cards for her son's classmates. The school colors are orange and black (obviously), and most of the cards reflect the graduates' interests.

We stayed here in January. The hotel is beautiful and located on the courner of Bourbon Street and Toulese at the site of the old opera house. I'm not sure where I picked up the mardi gras beads paper, but I used black, white daisy, and pansy purple CTMH cardstock. The fleur de lis edge is a punch from EK Success, and I used the punchouts randomly on the pansy purple cardstock. The letters are stickers.

Goldrush isn't usually my favorite of CTMH's colors, but I think it worked great hear with the Outdoor Denim color in the You Rock CTMH paper pack. I used the stamp set "Rustic Alphabet" for the title.
This layout shows the hotel where we stayed in Orange Beach, AL. I used B&T papers from the CTMH Caboodle paper pack. I wasn't a big fan of this pack at first, but I think it works great for this, and I'm planning to do another beach layout with it. The hibiscus are all from the CTMH stamp set Extreme Happiness, and I stamped them in crystal blue, sorbet, and sweet leaf.

Jess bought this cute beach hat on vacation, so I had to do a layout about it.
There is a CTMH "Pretty Pin" in the organdy ribbon. I used my Cricut for the title, then covered the letters in Glitter Glitz Glue - Stardust. I've had my Cricut for months, but this is the FIRST time I've used it.
This page was really simple, but I love the way it turned out. I cut the tag shapes for the picture mats, threaded organdy ribbon through holes I punched, then added a "Pretty Pin" through each ribbon.
I used one flip flap page on the first layout so I could hide another picture underneath. The flip flap page attaches to the outside of the page protector so you can see what's underneath without removing the page from the page protector.
This flip flap page hides a picture of Neal wearing Jess's hat. On the back side of the flip flap I added words from the Dr. Seuss classic, Go, Dog, Go, to go along with the title.
A layout from Orange Beach. I used CTMH Moon Doggie B&T papers and lots of embellishments.
My favorite part of this layout is the word "beach." I took one of my favorite stamp sets, "Posterboard Alphabet" an stamped right on some beach, sand, and shell photos that I took, and cut the letters out to make a great title.
This page tells the story of Jess and the kite she bought. It looked pretty for about two minutes, and then the wind snapped the string, and it flew away.
