Class of 2012


Well, look who's been busy!  That would be me!  I made these three graduation cards this morning.  They were a request from my best friend.  I wanted a same yet different look to them so I printed out three copies of Saturated Canary's 2012 Graduation Girl and colored them identically.  I then used the same color card stock (Stampin' Up Basic Black, Bordering Blue, and Night of Navy) and designer paper pad (My Mind's Eye - Meadow Lark) with three different layouts.  Even the embellishments were the same (flowers, Class of 2012 stickers, and bling flourihses).  By using different sketches and arranging the embellishments in varied ways, I was able to achieve a unique look for each card.

The theme over at Saturated Canary Challenge Blog is "Bling It Out" (#21).  I think these qualify!  

The first card uses a sketch designed by my design teammate and crafty friend, Kathy Curry.  It is the current Sassy Studio Designs Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge (#133).  You don't have to use a Sassy image to play along, but you get a bonus entry if you do.  I love Kathy's sketches!  A Martha Stewart border punch and Cuttlebug star embossing folder adorn my version.



The second card uses MOJO249 from Mojo Monday.  I went shopping last night with my brother.  He needed new clothes for a new job he is starting soon.  While we were out I requested a quick stop at Michaels and did the happy dance when I found they had the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Nestabilities!  Out came the 50% off coupon and my purchase was made!  I couldn't wait to use them so here they are making their debut!  Another Martha Stewart border punch graces this creation as well.




The third card features a  layout from The Sketchy Challenges (#27).  It has been quite some time since I played along over there, but this one was too fun to pass up! 



I am winding down from vacation now... Only one more day off before it's back to work.  I have gotten to do everything I wanted, including some crafting! Plus I even squeezed in a little reading tonight.  Next week is another busy design team week so keep your eyes open for more creations from me, including Sassy Studio Designs sneak peeks and new release!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day and happy crafting!

Great fun to see the same image on two cards following different sketches. She's such a cutie and I love the colour scheme. Thanks for playing with my sketch and joining the Sketchy Girls.
