2018 Graduation Money Holder

After taking a long hard look at the new Around the Corner stamp set as shown below from the Stampin' UP! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog (coming June 1st), it finally hit me....
I have a young brother graduating from High School this year and I could use this stamp set to create a little something for him.

AROUND THE CORNER stamp set (coming June 1st)

 I used a favorite returning macaroon as my main color and added some crumb cake and some night of navy. I used the popular eclipse technique on this project too. I love it!!!

I'm sure if I stuff this pocket with as many 20's as I can fit on there, my brother will be happy!

  • use the eclipse technique: stamp the cardstock to add a background, cut out the letters you desire, adhere the letters back in place of the cutout using dimensionals. Be sure to keep ALL the pieces you cut out. There's lots of videos and tutorials on Pinterest or Youtube you can view.
  • to create the pocket, I used a piece of crumb cake cardstock and cut it to 7 1/4"x7 1/4" then scored it at 1/2" then at 3 7/8". the overall size after you fold it is 3 3/8"x 7 1/4".
  • the inside crumb cake piece measures 3 1/4"x 6 3/4". 

  • mint macaroon
  • night of navy
  • mint macaroon cardstock
  • crumb cake cardstock
  • whisper white cardstock
  • Around the Corner
  • Sunshine Sayings
  • Alphabet rotary stamp (retired)
  • Big Shot

I can't wait to share some more new catalog projects and items with you as we approach the Catalog release on June 1st. Contact your local demonstrator if you'd like to receive a new catalog. Otherwise, I'd be happy to provide you one. Please e-mail me at the e-mail link on the top right of this page.

Also, be sure to check out the Retiring List and Clearance Rack and grab your favorites before they're gone.

Until next time...
