Napavine Tigers 2017

Graduations are happening all over from pre-school to college. I am here to share with you a 12 X 12 layout, I created for this time of the year for our local high school. I have mixed and matched several paper collections to create this layout. Don't hesitate to play with the papers to create a project. Many of the paper lines go hand in hand.

The 12 X 12 base paper is QQP-AW101. 

The middle of the layout, I die cut the balloons out of the same paper as the base paper, then layer ed on to black card stock. I distressed the balloons using Corral PowderPuff chalking Ink (from my stash). The strings and celebrate also from black card stock. 

The lower right of the layout. Here you can view all of the quotes that was used. I used quotes from 49 shades of gray QQP-SH500

Lower left - show cases the flower created with QQP-AW109 with 2016 Berry Jam PowderPuff Chalking Ink distress the edges of the flower with a brad center.  The quotes came from QQP-SH 500. The quotes can be seen as well,  The photo mats are from 49 Shades of Grey QQP-SH102 and Windsong QQP-WS100

The upper right of the layout, I used a large graduation cap cut out ( which was created from glitter paper)  with 2017 already cut out of the cap, I added glossy accents to make the year pop. I added the letters cut out of QQP -AW101 .

Junes Friday's Challenge Masculine Cards

Fridays Challenge on Quick Quotes

I have created three masculine cards for the guys in my family.

 Card 1
On card 1 I used Mulberry Paper line QQP-MB101 on a black base card. 
The tool chest was created with red and silver paper.
I placed the red card stock into an embossing folder that looks like a metal grate.  The tools was cut using silver paper then ran through the die cut machine cutting with red card stock. They where  then trimmed down to just the handles of the tools. I then ran them through the Big Shot in an embossing folder. I stamped the sentiments with archival ink distressing the edges with 2017 Royal Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink. Layering the tools at the bottom of the tool chest and added the hammer and screwdriver under the sentiment. Card 1 is a 41/4 X 51/2" card

Card 2
On card 2 & 3 I used Quick Quotes paper line Adventure Awaits QQP-AD101
Card 2 is is 51/2 X 51/2" card, with a light sea foam card base. I cut two layers of papers 51/4 X 51/4" & 5 X 5" Layering each layer after distressing the edges with a distress tool then edges them with 2016 Navy Powderpuff Chalking Ink. The motorcycle was die cut using the same paper line and used the chalking ink to highlight the area's of the motorcycle. The edges of the lighter paper with a gears stamp. A sentiment was stamped on white card stock distressed with Navy chalking ink, layered on the patterned paper. 

 Card 3
Card 3 is a 4`/4 X 51/2" card, the card base is a white card stock, layering two pieces of the paper line with the edges distressed with a distressing tool. I wrapped bakers twine around the top 1/3 of the card layering the sentiment and a large anchor. The top paper was curled up exposing a sentiment underneath.  The top sentiment was distressed with the navy chalking ink.
