Hello everyone! What do you do when you need some quick graduation cards? Simple Stories Rad Grad collection to the rescue! I created three really quick and easy cards. Here’s a look at the first card I created using this fun collection.
This card measures 5-1/2×5-1/2. The base of the card is black cardstock. I added some layers of black and white behind the design papers to just separate the patterns. The sentiment on the front is one of the 4×4 cut outs from the collection making this card really quick. I used a gold glitter shimmer pen over the writing and stars. I left the inside of this first card blank.
I did use some of the design papers to finish off the inside.
For the second card I decided to create a fun gatefold style card.
I used another one of the cut outs for the focal point on the front of the card. Lots of layers with the black and white cardstock to separate the patterns. I had some gold star brads in my stash so I added those to the front as well.
I used the Happy, Happy, Happy stamp set from Lawn Fawn for the inside sentiment. I added another cute gold star brad to finish it off.
I decided to create a fun fold card for the third one. Here’s a look at the front of the card.
Again the cut out is the focal point on the front. I used a little star punch and add some black glitter stars to the upper left hand corner of this Z fold card. Here’s a look at the inside.
I used the same sentiment from the Lawn Fawn stamp set but this time I heat embossed the word “happy” with some gold embossing powder. A couple more black glitter stars and this card is ready to go!
There you have it! Three quick but fun cards for graduation.
Have a great week!
Hello everyone! I have a quick little project to share with you today. I received a sample of the Simple Stories Plaid Dad collection. The sample was only three sheets of the 12×12.
I saw a really cute tutorial on the Everything Authentique Facebook page and I thought it would be the perfect project. In the tutorial they used a graduation themed papers but I wanted to create a Fathers Day version. Its a small little folio created from cardstock.
I double matted the project using black cardstock for the base and then added a layer of gray cardstock. It has a magnet closure on the front. I created a pocket with one of the cut parts and add a couple of tags with some cute brads that resemble screws.
When opened up all of the way there are pockets on the left side and a waterfall in the center.
The waterfall has a magnet attached to the back so it can be removed. I used the cute plaid shirt paper as a fun surprise once the waterfall is removed.
I didn’t have a lot of paper left so I did some random blocking of papers to add to the back of the folio.
This was a really cute project and came together really quick! Sending this to my Father in Law for Fathers Day! I love the fun saying, “Sawdust is Man Glitter”.
Have a great week and checkout the fun tutorial over on the Everything Authentique Facebook page.
Hello everyone! I have a few projects to share today using Authentique Sea Maiden. This collection is really fun. The colors are very vintage and there are some great images.
Have a great weekend!
Hello everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. Today I want to share a quick card I created using some Lawn Fawn products. Here’s a look at my clean and simple card.
I just love this little sloth. I colored the sloth with Copic markers and added some white details with my gel pen.
I wanted a few more leaves so I used the Lawn Fawn die to add some around the circle opening. I used some white embossing powder for the sentiment along the bottom.
That’s my quick and simple card showcasing Lawn Fawn products.

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by! Today I want to share a Mothers Day card created with the beautiful Floral Shoppe collection by Graphic 45. This collection is stunning. The rich colors are so pretty and perfect for a Mothers Day card.
My card measures 6×6 and is a top folding card. Since I was creating this card for my Mother-in-law, I knew she would love the red florals from this collection. I used one of the journaling cards that I trimmed down a bit as the focal point for the card. I added a white die cut heart doily and some flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts as well a bow using my favorite May Arts silk ribbon. Here’s a closer look at the front of the card.
I used some chipboard from the collection as well as one of the fun stamps from the sticker sheet. I spelled MOM using the stickers from the Graphic 45 12 Days of Christmas sticker sheet. They were the perfect size and color to layer onto the tag element from the pockets and tags.
I wanted to finish off the inside with some of the beautiful papers as well. I also stamped my sentiment onto one of the journal cards that I trimmed down using a great stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Happy, Happy, Happy.
There’s my card. If you haven’t gotten the Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe collection I highly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed. Now to get my card ready for the mail! Have a fabulous week!
Hello everyone! Today I want to share a quick little Mothers Day project. My inspiration for this project came from a fabulous tutorial by the amazing Kathy Clement of KathybyDesign. I love everything she creates. She used the G45 Little Women Collection but I wanted to make a Mothers Day version using a sample of Simple Stories Mama Llama collection. This collection is adorable. Since I only had three sheets of 12×12 this was a perfect project. Here’s the front of the tag folio.
The base of the tag folio are the square tags from Graphic 45. I used the fabulous new dies to cover the tags. I used a scallop circle for the front image of the cute Mama Llama and the little llama. Here’s a closer look at the front cover.
Here’s the inside.
I added a little flap page and some of the cute cut aparts from the collection.
I tied some pretty May Arts ribbon to the top and added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. This is a really fun project. Thanks Kathy for the inspiration and tutorial. Here’s the link if you would like to create one yourself!
Have a great day!
Hello everyone! Today I want to share a fun interactive card created with some Lawn Fawn products. I used the fun Pivot Pop Up die to create my card. I love how this card is just a fun surprise when opened! I also used some fun Lawn Fawn papers for my card. Here’s a look at the front of my card.
For the flowers I used the little flowers die.
I actually think everything that I die cut is from Lawn Fawn.
Here’s a look at the fun pivot pop up on the inside!
That’s my card! It was fun using my Lawn Fawn stash! They do have some adorable products! I love how you can mix and match the dies to create the perfect scene. I’m going to enter this into the LawnFawnatics Challenge. Have a great day
