Graduation Memory Boards

Last week I shared with you some graduation cards I made. Now I want to share with you some graduation memory boards I worked on this summer. This is a project that makes a wonderful gift for a graduate. If you have a child graduating this coming year, you can create this for your graduation party. 

 This memory board was a gift for my friend Rose's daughter.

I loved this photo of Carolyn....


I used my Cricut machine to cut out all the decorative pieces.



I usually do these memory boards in black and white. 
 I decided to switch it up a bit and use some colored photos.


I don't get to do a lot of girly boards so I really enjoyed adding some bling. Check out the rhinestones and glittered paper....


I hand stamped the saying..."Putting My Stamp On the World"


Here's a tip...  for the words use your printer.  I selected words and then chose different fonts for each word.  I then printed them out on card stock paper.  I used a Sharpie marker to hand write the words "in the"....


I printed this saying out on vellum paper and then ripped the edges of the paper and mounted it on scrapbook paper.
This is such a sweet saying...


This  memory board could be created for other occasions. How about an engagement party or wedding shower. Just add photos of the couple. Whoever the gift is for, it is sure to be a special treasure. Later this week I'll share with you a few
memory boards I made for boys.

If you want to see how to create this memory board watch my show "Fancy That" and see the episode below....

Boy, Rose's girls have sure grown up, and so beautiful.

You are a whiz with these boards, but I know how much time and energy you put in each one. They are all so lovely.

I fly through all your posts and don't take time to comment. Shame on me. I'll do better....say hi to Rose for me.

Love,
Amy
