Hi there!

Pretty Phrases stamp set from Paper Smooches

I'm popping in super quick to just say hi and show some quick cards I made for an ongoing fundraiser I've been doing.

It's the end of the school year and graduation time is upon us here at the Stollfus household. We have a niece graduating in June and I've been coming up with ideas for her present, but the last resort is always a gift card, right?

I found two crafty cute templates from crafty bloggers like ourselves. One is from Carolina who always seems to have the best ideas. I love stopping in to her blog from time to time. Here is her creative take on a gift card holder and here is what I made with it.

The next one took me a bit to wrap my head around, it was a bit late in the night when I started the process, but I did get it. An AHA moment. ;)  It comes from Paper Craft Connections originally, but I found it on Cathy's blog who links you to PCC. Here is her post for the Pop-up gift card holder. Here's my duo take.

Stampin' Up All Year Cheer 1 stamp set

The rest are an attempt to finish off the rest of the 12 x 12 scrapbook paper. Lots of easy fun cards can be made Clean and Simple!
