"Filmstrip" Graduation Announcement

Here's another graduation announcement created with My Digital Studio®. I love designing and creating with this program because it's so user-friendly. Like my previous graduation projects, this is a very simple design. The "filmstrip" is fun and the flourish under the school name and date dress this up just a bit. Keep in mind that you have the option of printing My Digital Studio projects at home or, if you live in the US or Canada, through Stampin' Up!'s Professional Printing Service.

This invitation is part of the Embark Graduate Ensemble - Digital Download (item #133467) and can be made using a pre-designed template. That's right, with this particular project, you simply drag and drop your photos into the existing photo boxes, add your text, and you're finished. And if the colors aren't what you want, you can change them to match your graduate's school colors! It's. That. Easy.

Color Block Graduation Announcement

This was a very easy announcement to make and I just love this background color with the black and white images. The style of this announcement is simple, but the color blocks make it fun. And while it's obvious with just a quick look that it's a graduation announcement, the informational part does not overpower the photos. If this design is too simplistic for you, it's possible to add some artwork, such as an image of a graduation cap or diploma. One of the great things about My Digital Studio® is that the possibilities are virtually endless, so you can customize your announcements to fit your graduate's style, school colors, or whatever else you choose.

A Little Late...

I had planned to post my graduation samples a month ago, but that plan went out the window when my computer was damaged during a storm (sigh). I realize that it's too late for graduation invitations but most of the schools in our area had their graduations this week, so there is still time for making announcements. With that in mind, I will be posting some graduation samples over the next several days. I hope you enjoy them; perhaps you'll find something that you can use for your grad. Thanks for visiting!

I know that it's been many months since I have posted anything. Unfortunately, our lives have been so crazy this past year or so. I am however, busy working on both traditional and digital projects, which I hope to be posting soon. I don't have any projects to post at this time because we sustained some computer damage during a recent storm and I am in the process of recovering many of my project images. Fortunately, I had posted some of the projects elsewhere, so I will be able to post those soon; the rest will have to wait for a bit.
I also wanted to let people know that I made the decision to close my demonstrator website/online store. It is still possible to order online with me as your demonstrator by going to and selecting me as your demonstrator when placing your order. Of course, orders can also still be placed directly through me by clicking the button on the left to contact me.
I will be putting together some product shares very soon, so watch for information about those. In the meantime, take a look at the new catalog and check out all of the great new products!
