So my little Jordy is graduating from 8th grade. I'll have 2 high schoolers next year! Let the good times roll. We had a celebration last weekend that combined Mother's Day, my birthday and Jordan's graduation. She got lots of cash for gifts so some thank you cards are definitely in order. I was proud of her when I saw her make a list of thank you notes she needed to send. Definitely something you should make your kids do.
So here's my set of 4 thank you cards, very colorful and suitable for a teenager. I used papers from My Mind's Eye, the Good Stuff and Please Note stamps from Studio Calico and the Tagged Sentiments set from Papertrey Ink.journaling card as the base. I layered on the approved stamp, the I love it check list, and please note. I love these combined sentiments for thank you cards. For the circle accent I stamped the image and punched it out with a 1-3/4" circle punch. Ink colors I used for my cards are Papertrey's Spring Moss, Lavender Moon, Hibiscus Burst and Ocean Tides. I also used some Divine Twine and Papertrey Vintage Buttons to finish off the card fronts. Card bases are Rustic White.
Washi tape from the Smash collection. Very colorful and always fun to see a little something special on the envelopes. I also stamped more Studio Calico images on the envelope in the colors that coordinate with the stamped frame on the card fronts.
Papertrey's Think Big Favorites #15.
Okay, one more project crossed off the list. I showed Jordy my cards and she approved!
New Washi tape will be in the shop very soon. I should be receiving my shipment within a few days. Look for updates here on the blog and on Twitter. I'll also be adding some brand new items to the shop too. Many of you have been purchasing lots of tags. Thank you so much! I have lots of varieties and they're so fun to add to Project Life pages, scrapbook pages, cards and packaging. You can check them all out at the shop.
A Summer List. Not just a check list of boring projects. I'm compiling a check list of fun things I want to accomplish while the girls are home for the Summer. We have an extremely busy schedule but it's broken up with lots of time at home during the day. I'll be sharing that list here on the blog soon.....maybe to inspire you to create your own Summer List.
Looking forward to:
Bringing home a new vintage industrial find. Have you seen my new Pinterest board called Vintage Industrial? Lots of swoon worthy stuff over there. I'll be sharing photos from a little junkin' trip I took a few weeks ago. I think you'll fall in love with the building just like I did.
