Celebrating graduation!

Graduating from high school is such a special time. I've designed a few items to help celebrate and remember this special time in a senior's life.

My daughter, Emily, is a senior this year. She loves the vintage style I created these photo frames in that style. The first holds an 8x10 photo. It is covered with book paper and I've added some fun embellishments.The overall size is 14 x 12 and is a solid wood frame.

This will find a place in our living room and be hanging there for years to come.

The next photo holder has a metal floral shaped and is covered with paper and embellished with pearls and glitter. Since it is metal, magnets can be added as well. It measures approximately 6 inches across. A square or rectangular shape is available as well.

Emily will hang this in her room to remind her of her accomplishment. It's also a great size to take to college to spruce up a dorm room. Any selection of paper and embellishments can be used. The photo is about 3x4.

The smallest of the three is a little blackboard frame. Really cute! The overall size is about 2x4 inches. The photo inside is about a 1.75x1. It's great for hanging on a bulletin board.

Any style of paper and embellishing can be done for the frames. The metal frame is also available as a rectangle or square.

Large frame - $25.00
Metal photo holder - $10.00
Mini Blackboard frame - $5.50

10% of each order will be donated to the 2012 Hudson's Bay High School Graduation Celebration.

Announcing graduation!

Ordering announcements from the big companies is great unless you want them personalized. That is what I wanted for my senior, not the exact same one that most of the other kids were sending out! The only personalization came from adding name cards.

Teens love to have something that is a little different then everyone else's. I put together several different styles of graduation announcements that can easily be adapted to your school's colors.

Your senior's name will be a part of the announcement, not an add on. You can write your announcement text or select from samples that I provide. Fonts are your choice as well. Creating a custom design just for you is also an option.

Thank you cards are also available. See them here.

Envelopes are included.

10 announcements - $15.00
20 announcements - $30.00
40 announcements - $60.00

10% of each order will be donated to the 2012 Hudson's Bay High School Graduation Celebration.

Isn't this paper rose beautiful?

Yes, it is made from cardstock paper which means that it can be made to match your event colors!

This rose is four inches wide at it's widest point and it two inches tall at the center.

What a wonderful addition this would be to your decorations or as a unique party favor for your guests!

You could also use this on top of a gift in lieu of a bow. Lots of possibilities!
