Class of 2011 Autograph Book

Reminisces Graduation Celebration 2011 paper collection was used to create this autograph book. Using some corrugated cardboard, I tore off some of the top layer, then applied distress stain (dusty concord) to bring in our school color.  I also stained the border strip off the 'I Made It' paper. The dream is stamped, embossed, cut out and stained. The chipboard quote is perfect! Added a tassel, a few flowers, a 3D cap sticker from last years stash, a BHS brad, then it was all ready to put together.  The inner pages are 6x8 index cards, (lined on one side only) used the Cinch and added some ribbons! Enjoy!

My Mom

Since my mom always has her cards up for months, I decided to give her a little something that won't be outdated on fathers day! I used a 6x12 canvas, and patterned papers from Reminisce In Bloom collection. Cover the front of canvas using Colors of Spring, paper punch strips of  Power of Flowers and creasing them to wrap around to the back of the canvas. I used Beacons 3 in 1 for adhesive, then I cut 2-'M's out on the cricut utilizing the shadow feature. Then I fussy cut two alike flowers flowers from The Power of Flowers, gave them texture by dry embossing, a little ink, tied a knot in the end of some twine, put through the flower center and I had a O.  Die cut a butterfly and fussy cut a lavender flower from Colors of Spring for a little more dimension a beautiful poem a few embellishments and something my mom can enjoy for a long time!!
