Graduation Set

My Goodness, it's the 24th of July!  Where has the last six weeks of summer gone?  My dear Mum and Dad just left and headed back to Scotland last night.  They were with us for those six weeks, but we had so many celebrations and commitments to get through that my stamping hours were greatly curtailed.  So in an effort to get back in to the swing of things, I'll start with a quick blog post!

Graduation for my eldest son was first on the agenda this summer, so I made a coordinated set of a scrapbook page, a Congratulations Grad. card and of course a simple Thank You note.  His school is the "Home of the Panthers" and of course, as you'll see their colors are red and black!

So first is the scrapbook page:

I used all the sparkly goodness available in red and black from Sparkle N Sprinkle along with various widths of tapes to make my page. Click here for full instructions.

Moving right along to the Graduation card.  I was still on a roll (with the tapes!) and kept to the same colors. Here is my finished Congratulations card: 

Sparkle N Sprinkle has a great little Graduation set, from which I used several of the images for my projects. The instructions for the card are right here

Then finally, an easy, but effective little Thank You note. I just embossed the Thank You in Black detail embossing powder and taped the Sparkle N Soft products on to two widths of  Tear-ific tape to complete this one:

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll be back soon, I'm off to work on my August sketch challenge for Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Have you sent in your July Challenge yet?
