"INSPIRE US!" -- Graduation

Welcome to Lovebug Scrapbooking's "INSPIRE US!" blog hop!! Our blog hops take place on the last Saturday of every month. Thanks so much for joining us!

If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking place, please go back to Lovebug Scrapbooking and start the Hop. You won't want to miss all the inspiration from our members....... or the prizes :-)

Our theme for May is "Graduation".


Just yesterday I had my son in to get his graduation pictures done. Since we are homeschooling our children, they won't get to take part in the public school graduation. Luke didn't mind that at all, but I did want him to get his cap/gown pictures done. Did he ever look handsome! I don't have a pic to share with you yet, but I will post when I get them. We are planning a graduation ceremony some time in June.

We are so proud of our boy, or I should say -- young man! He has so much potential and so much to look forward to.

Anyway, on to my project!
You'll need a 8.5x11 sheet of cardstock. Score and fold in half length-wise and width-wise.
Cut out the bottom left corner. NOTE: Flip your cardstock over so the wrong side is on top before cutting. I did my sample the wrong way.
Flip the bottom flap up. Cut a slit at the top, as shown. I think there are punches to do this, but I don;t have one :-) I used my exacto knife.

Using some sticky tape, adhere the flap down.

Add your greeting. I cut a small rectangle to go inside the flap. I'll insert a gift certificate or some money in there.

Decorate the front of your card.


This blog hop will run from today, May 29th until June 1st. Lovebug will be drawing for winners on June 2nd .

I also have a prize to give away. If you follow my blog, I'll put your name in for a CD by my youngest sister. It's called "On The Right Track".

You are at the end of the blog hop!
Head back to Lovebug Scrapbooking and leave a comment :-)

Nice card Carla.. it's too bad he couldn't have attended the ceremony with his peers but it looks like this will be very special anyway.
