Boys to Men

Happy July everyone! Wow, did that ever sneak up fast! Where did June go? Today I get to do my very first DT post for Scrapbooking Cafe Online blog, and I couldn't be more excited!

I ordered a bunch of fun goodies from the Scrapbooking Cafe Online store and waited patiently for them to arrive so I could play! Unfortunately Canada Post wasn't quite as eager I was and my parcel still hadn't arrived by the end of last week. Luckily for me I already own some product from SCO and so I was able to create a project for my post. Hopefully my new goodies arrive early this week so I can show them off to you in my next post.

First off, I made a simple little card for new baby boy. I used the This & That Charming line from Echo park and it made it so easy to put this together quite quickly.
Supplies used: Echo Park This & That Charming Collection Pack, Bakers Twine: Doodlebug, Ink: Time Holtz Distress Ink Antique Linen, Adhesives: 3D Foam Squares and Adhesive Runners from Scrapbook Adhesives, 1/2 and 1/4 inch Scor tape; Cardstock: Bazzill; Scalloped Edge punch: SU/EK Success; Misc: Buttons, embroidery floss.

For my second card I decided to make a Graduation card. This past weekend was graduation in my town and it was great to see all the young people all dressed up for Grad as well as for the Prom the following day.
Supplies used: Echo Park This & That Charming Collection Pack, Bakers Twine: Doodlebug, Brads: Echo Park, Adhesives: 3D Foam Squares and Adhesive Runners from Scrapbook Adhesives, 1/2 and 1/4 inch Scor tape; Cardstock: Bazzill; Tab punch: Fiskars/Jenni Bowlin; Misc: Buttons, embroidery floss, photo corners.

I attached a sticker from the Echo Park kit to a piece of paper and ran it through my printer to get my sentiment. I used dimensional adhesives and popped up the journaling card to give the card some dimention, and also popped up the globe sticker so that it wasn't laying flat on the card.
On the inside of the card I continued with the Dr. Seuss quote from the sentiment on the front and printed out the poem. I added a few flags made from left over scraps to fancy up the inside a bit.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
I hope you will head on over to the Scrapbooking Cafe Online blog and become a follower so you can see what the amazingly talented design team is up to.
Reading your kind comments makes my day.
