Jump for Joy Grad

Happy Saturday and International Pi(e) Day!  

Besides eating pie today, we’ve got something else you can jump for joy for, it’s another Sneak Peek at The Cat’s Pajamas!  Today we’re showing off a cutie patootie set that can be yours for FREE!  Yep, with any $65 order Alma will toss it into your order :)  It’s perfect for graduations season, or celebrating anything fun with these great sentiments.  As well we’re showing off some great new CutAbles that Alma has created.  You can use these with any electronic die cutting machine - or just print them off on your printer as PDF’s.  Super versatile.  

Today I’m showing off Jump for Joy set and the Diamond Fold CutAbles.  

We’re heading into graduations season, and with the age our kids are at and the Youth Ministry we did for 10 years, I have lots of grads to congratulate each year.  I decided to anticipate some school colours of one of our high schools for this design.

First I stamped our happy dancing graduate penguin in Memento Tuxedo Black, and then stamped a second little guy in red ink, cut out the mortor board and added to the top of the design.  A little touch of colour to him with some prismacolour pencils and he was done.

Then, all the fancy work of the cutting was done on my Silhouette.  This card looks complicated but it’s really easy to put together.

Here is what the card looks like more closed.  You can see I added some of the sentiments from the set out the outside panels stamped in red and then embossed those mats.  I’ve added the larger sentimetn as a flag overtop of the design, accenting the main image with photo corders and card candi dots.  

Here is the card stretched wide open.  It’s so fun to pick different colours and patterns for the inside mats, it’s a design that really makes a fun statement.  

Here’s what this Free with $65 order set looks like.  I love the “now get a job” sentiment, that just cracks me up.  Something we’d say to our kids (in jest) and they’d roll their eyes :)

Now here is your invite to our Pajama Party in just 3 days!  We hope you can join us!  I’ll be showing off some fun stuff I saved just for the party!  

And remember there’s another easy way to win these TCP goodies....head on over to the SCS TCP In it to Win It Thread and chat it up....Alma picks winners from the thread for the new sets!  

Here’s the rest of the Cat’s in the Pack showing off this set today!

That's a really fun graduation card! Thanks for the reminder to start thinking about those. I think I'll need several of those cards this spring.

Love that you bascially created your own patterned paper with the way you stamped the various sentiments on the sides. So well done!
