A Sassy Graduation



Why is it that my mojo chooses the most crucial moments to go MIA?  I have known for quite some time that I have cards galore due this week and yet I've procrastinated with abandon!  I've spent my evenings cuddling with the small man, reading, or sleeping.  I don't know what my deal is!  I usually thrive under these conditions, but sometimes... sometimes it's a battle to choose the craft desk over the couch!  And this was one of those weeks.  I did manage to get in gear this evening to make this card for the preview of some brilliant graduation images from Sassy Studio Designs!  Lindsay has been hard at work finishing up a mix of amazing new images which will all debut in the store tomorrow, Saturday, May 19th!  If you've been following the peviews, so far we've shown you Marie Antoinette and a very cool mom (who was a freebie on Sunday if you were lucky enough to grab her then)! Today we have the graduates for you!  There are 3 new graduation images: Graduation (the Sassy young woman I've used above), Chelsea's Graduation, and The Graduate (a male image).  Pop over to the Sassy Studio Designs blog to see samples from my team mates using these fabulous images!  And as a bonus I think there are even a few peeks of Katniss, Sassy on Fire over there as well!

I have an order for some graduation cards due this weekend so this image was perfect timing for me!  I received a few details as to school colors and the recipient's appearance and took it from there.  It's for a high school graduation, but I wanted something a little different than your usual diplomas and mortarboards.  I think what I ended up with is cool and shabby chic.  Hopefully just the thing a young lady about to start a new chapter of her life would like to receive!

Papers are Basic Grey - Kissing Booth.  I was super excited to use my new Nesties, the Floral Ovals!  I just received them in the mail this week (I love eBay!)!  When I saw the May sketch over at priscillastyles Midnight Madness (MMSC138) I knew they were getting christened!  I also used a notebook edge border punch, a houndstooth embossing folder, and my usual assortment of flowers and pearls.  The sentiment is a dimensional sticker from Jolee's Boutique.

We have a lot going on at Sassy Studio Designs this weekend! I hope you'll join us today for Fabulous Freebie Friday on Paper Craft Planet!  And tomorrow is our release, BLOG HOP, and a chat with our design team on the party blog!  Be sure to check the SSD blog for all the details!

Thanks for stopping by and let's hope my motivation returns! :)

Wow, Regan!!! This is gorgeous!! Beautiful colors, and I love this layout!!! Fun touch to use the "notebook" paper. I'm really sorry I don't have any graduates this year so I could CASE this card!

Such a great card. That is a great image and your coloring is great. I am loving the Nestability die you used to frame her.
