Little Scap Pieces Fun Friday - Congrats to the Grad

For the winner of the Craftin Desert Diva's Blogaversary Hop, click HERE

Happy Friday!! How can this be the last day of May already?? My gosh, this year is flying by!!


Friday means it's time for a Fun Friday Challenge at Little Scrap Pieces. The theme this week is Congratulations to the Graduate.


I created a money-holder card for the graduate, using paper from Fancy Pants' Country Boutique paper stack. The black base is from The Paper Studio.


Congratulations is I think a Fiskars stamp. Graduate is from Penny Black's Kate's Alphabet stamp set. The gems are from Recollections.


To create the inside money holder, a piece of 7 x 11 paper was scored on the long side at the 4" and 8" marks. Spellbinders Classic Postage Stamp Edgeabilities were used to cut the decorative edge. The label is a Spellbinders Grommet Tags die. The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Positive Thoughts stamp set.


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Little Scrap Pieces to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Congrats to the Grad project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

My sweetest friend, I'm back to finish catching up on your creations and flooding your Inbox! I had a Starbucks date with my mom this afternoon, so I had to step away. :o) This is an amazingly beautiful money holder, Lisa! The paper is gorgeous and I love that you centered some of the flowers with rhinestones. :o) The sentiments go so well together.. you'd think they're from the same set. :o) The interior is equally lovely. I love when pockets are lined with pretties, so I immediately smiled at the edger thingy you chose. :o) I can always count on you to never miss a detail! This will be loved by the graduate! (The gift tucked inside doesn't hurt, that's for sure.. hehe!) Beautiful work, my talented friend! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
