Digi Kit Sneak Peek #2

Here is a second digital card front I created with the soon to be released digi kit by
JMC Designs, To The Mountains. It will be available at June 1st.
I'll share more details about the kit on my blog on June 1st, too.

All elements used were from the kit.

I created my own sentiment.

My Memories Suite V7 was used to make the card.

I'm entering my all digital card front in the new to me challenge,
Digitally 'Sweet' Challenges, birthday cards.

Thanks for looking =)

Digital Birthday Card Front - kit sneak peek

Today I have a "sneak peek" of an upcoming digital scrap booking set
The set releases June 1st at
and is a wonderful set, great for masculine projects.
I'll share more on June 1st !

In the mean time,
I recently came across this challenge site
that is geared towards 100% digital creations:
I decided to make a feminine card with the
 upcoming kit to share at the challenge. 

All elements used are in the kit,
some have been resized smaller to fit
the 5.5" x 4.25" printable card front.

The fonts I used for the text are
Debby and Levenim.

My Memories Suite 7 was used to create the card front.

Thanks for looking =)

Graduation Card #2

(the ink from the markers and this scrap
of card stock did not play well together;
I should have redone it)


Another graduation card I made this year for a young man.

various old Stampin' Up! stamp sets, inks and card stocks
an embossing folder from Cuttlebug
a clear alphabet stamp set for the name and year
marker and white gel pen to highlight to word "grad"
paper piercing tool
a pop dot for the extra cap I stamped and cut out

Thanks for looking =)

Grad Card Money Holder




I used various retired Stampin' Up! stamp sets, inks, card stocks and dies
to create this money (check!) holder card.
I also used a clear alphabet set for the name and year. 

I outlined portions of the word "grad" with a coordinating marker
 and added a few highlights with a white gel pen .

The sparkly yellow ink on the "G" is from a set of markers my Mom found
for me at Office Depot. It is attached to a strip of card stock that
wraps around the card  with a dimensional / pop dot.

Dimensions you ask ? I didn't write them down, sorry !
I laid a blank check on a piece of card stock then
made marks where I wanted it to fold.
Trimmed, scored and punched a half circle
in the center of the pocket portion.
The two side edges of the pocket portion are adhered with glue.

Thanks for looking =)
