Monday Montage #214

 

It's that time again! Time for the Monday Montage Blog Hop! And you know what else it is time for? Graduations! I have already been to one graduation, and this week I will be going to four more! My son is graduating from High School as well as one niece, two nephews and my son's two best friends. So, I am in need of graduation cards! Are you in the same boat? Well, I have two down and four more to go! 


Have you seen the meme May-cember? If you haven't, look it up! My life is pretty hectic this time of year with all of the end of the school year activities, and even more so with the many graduates in my life. So, I needed to make a fairly quick card that I could duplicate. The Slim Sayings Bundle was just what I was looking for! All I need to do is change up the school colors!

Here is a close-up!


For the graduation cap, I just cut two squares. One in the school color, cut at 1-3/4", and one in Basic Black just slightly bigger. The Basic Black square makes the cap show up a little better. The tassel is made with embroidery floss and a retired brad that wasn't quite the right shade of green. But not to worry! I pulled out my Shaded Spruce Blends and colored the top of the brad! I finished it off with a few classic matte dots.

Monday Montage Week #213

 

Hello! Welcome to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! And happy mother's day to all of the wonderful women hopping with us! Today I am sharing the mother's day projects that I made for some important women in my life! Even though mother's day has come and gone, these cards can still be made with a variety of sentiments to suite your needs! 

I had so much fun playing with new products from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, and some products that are retiring soon! Here are some close-ups:

These cards feature the brand new Hues of Happiness Suite on pgs. 108-109 in the May 2022- April 2023 Annual Catalog! I am so in love with this suite! It jumped out at me during my first look at the new catalog, and I mean like it seemed to jump off the page! I love the fabulous stamp set and dies, the beautiful DSP and the richly colored Glossy Dots-it is all so gorgeous!! I know I will be making many more projects with this suite!

This card features the Flowering Rain Boots Bundle-a solid favorite of mine from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. I mean, those boots!! How can you not love them? And the Pebbles Enamel Shapes are pretty great too! These fantastic products will only be available through June, so get them before they are gone!

I also made a few quick tags using the cute little flower and leaves stamps from the new Cup of Tea Stamp Set. This stamp set is part of the super fun Tea Boutique Suite on pgs. 12-13 of the new catty. I can see a lot of possibilities with this amazing suite as well!
