Let's Hear It For The Boys! FMS337

A sentiment from Stampin' Up's soon to be released set Around the Corner worked perfectly for final batch of graduation cards I made for my daughter.  It has been quite the crafting week around here.  I am a selfish crafter and only make cards for my own use so creating what other people want is tough for me!  But...30 graduation cards are done - check!

Then I made 25th Anniversary invites  - with a request for super simple - I had to remove the bows.....sigh....25 invites done - check!

Oh there's more -  these were the toppers for favors at a Thirty-One Event my daughter hosted - a camping theme was requested.  They were clipped to clear bags filled with marshmallows, graham crackers and hershey bars.  20 toppers - check!

Since Erin is a Thirty-One consultant  I have a zillion 31 products to keep things organized in my craft room.....and to lug stuff to gram's.....or to the lake.....or to shoebox swaps.  I have a Super Swap It Pocket that is terrific for swaps.  BUT what I recently discovered it that Stampin' Up's new Stamparatus fits into the side zipper pouches perfectly!  There are two side pouches so you can put the Stamparatus on one side and the second plastic cover on the other!  I know many of you use 31 products so I'm passing along the info in case you have one of those Swap It Pockets lying around somewhere!

So that was my week....whew!  Glad to get back to my own crafting!

I am delighted to be hosting this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  My sketch leaves you lots of room for creative action!  Join us!

Such a cute card! Love the books and cap, perfect! Fantastic 25th anniversary cards too! Now need to go order one of those bags too...perhaps my Stamparatus storage that involves opening the bottom drawer on my desk and then stuffing it in might not be the best storage solution for it. ;)

You have been the super stamper making super cute cards and tags. I love, love, love your cards and the tags are adorable. I know everyone appreciates your creativity! I like the bow on the card! 😀

You have been super busy! And none of these projects would be easy to mass produce -- lots of die-cutting, coloring, etc... But they are all fabulous! And I'm sure they produced lots of smiles.

Your FMS is super and maintains a "decorum" suitable for such an occasion. The other "cards/item also are just make it all look so easy!

Oh my, you have been b.u.s.y. I don't think I could cope with that sort of quantity but you've done an amazing job with all your requests. Enjoy stamping for you now!

Love the boy grad cards! That paper is just fabulous and that colour combination is my favourite! The anniversary invites are beautiful! I love all of that silver!!! So pretty! Thanks for a great sketch this week!!

Jen Mitchell said...

You are one busy bee! In addition to your fabulous graduation card (love the highlights on the die cut sentiment) you created some beautiful anniversary invitations. Woo hoo!

My GOODNESS Linda, you have been super super busy, and stepped up to all these craft projects and not only completed them but every single thing you made is lovely! What a great idea with the bag toppers - I’m going to file this idea away! I totally love the bold contrast on your challenge card!

You are a champion! I struggle to make one card, let alone 30!!! Your graduation card is perfect - I really love these colours together.
