Graduation 2011

My youngest graduated from High School last Saturday. Her class had ~ 550 kids.....with that comes lots of graduation parties- so I am making cards a few at a time.

 I made these cards with a Graduate border SVG file that Dana made (her Blog HERE) - love this- cut on Sparkle Noir it is a gorgeous black cardstock with a bit of sparkle in the cardstock. On the first card, I embossed the background with a SU embossing folder. On the second card, I added a "Congrats" dollar sentiment to the back panel in Versamark Dazzle. Both the sentiment and the diploma are from Create with TLC. On the inside, a dollar diploma added to a sentiment from Verve

 We had a great day and ate alot at parties that followed!

 Stephi is third from the left.

And finally, with Aunt Diane and Aunt Annie

 Do you have the Make the Cut?  I have found a couple of great resources for help!  There is a Yahoo group that is all MTC tutorials to learn HOW to use the MTC- Google make the Cut tutorials Yahoo group....  There is also a Forum for the Make the Cut HERE.  The help and support of the ladies on these groups is so awesome!  Make the Cut is like Itunes for shapes to cut with your electronic cutter- I do not have to spend $100.00 to make one card anymore- {LOVE}.

Have a great day Shelly
