Growing in Unity Thursday

I've been trying to grow beyond "just" making cards with my stamps.

Here's an item that you could easily give as a gift.  I'm going to use it as a motivational decoration for myself.  It's time to go back to school again for an additional certification as a school administrator and I'm feeling a little less than motivated to go back one more time after finishing a Master's about a year ago.  I'm hoping this girl keeps my eye on the prize of having upward career mobility when I want it! 

For this project, I used two stamp sets: Graduation Wishes and Love is in the Pages.


First, I stamped, colored, and fussy cut the graduation girl.  I used blue for the accent color because it's the color for education studies.  Then I stamped the sentiment and cut it with a die.  Next, I stamped the books with antique linen distress ink on a piece of white paper and cut it with another die.  Finally, I cut a tag shape, hand lettered "class of 2020" and inked it with some blue ink.  The frame that holds everything was a Dollar Tree find. 

When the day comes that I complete this certificate, I can replace the items in the clip with a photo!  This would be an awesome item to make for high school or college grads you might know.  Do you know anyone graduating this spring?

Comment away each day this week for a chance to win a grab bag from Unity Stamp Co!
