Finishing out a fabulous week of blog hop inspiration projects with Authentique and Therm O Web. I have a fun end-of-the-school-year project to share with you today featuring Authentique’s gorgeous Renew collection. Perfect for that special graduate in your life.
The end of the year will be here before we know it, and with Mr. Pete being a senior, seems like I’ve got graduation on the brain. It hit me that the die cut sentiments from the Renew collection totally fit for a young person about to enter their next stage in life. After all, who is more footloose and fancy free than a brand new graduate?
I love that Authentique’s Titles & Phrases die cuts are the perfect size for Project life inserts, or make a great focal point piece, such as on my card. By framing the die cut and creating depth with foam adhesive, a simple journaling card can really take center stage.
The frame itself was die cut from Therm O Web’s iCraft Adhesive Sheets and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The finish is wonderfully shabby and crackled, enhanced even more with a bit of ink. I have the full directions up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’re interested in taking a peek.
I made a matching gift bag using a single sheet of 12×12 paper and a few simple folds. I used some different patterns for interest, but pulled it all together with coordinating trims and accents.
There’s nothing but blue skies from now on!
Thanks for stopping by, everyone! Wishing you all a very wonderful weekend!
