Yes, it is graduation time. You may remember, I don't like to buy stamps that are super specific, like "happy graduation." This stamp can be used for a graduation, new job, wedding, promotion, any happy celebration. Today our class was for special occasions. I kept the card trendy, using the flag banner, made from DSP. It is a little masculine, but could easily be made more feminine with softer colors or a bit of ribbon. I don't use the silver cardstock very often anymore, but it is perfect for a graduation card.
Today is the announcement day for Stampin' Up! of what stamps and accessories are being retired in the new catalog. If you have a wish list going, shop early to avoid disappointment. When something sells out, it is gone! Stamps will be available all the way until the end of May, when the new catalog goes live.
