Embark Graduate Announcements

Friday I promised you I would share a recent project that I made with you using My Digital Studio. As I’ve mentioned before my youngest is graduating from high school this spring. It has really snuck up on me, her senior year has just flown by so quickly. So when the Embark Graduate Ensemble was released earlier I knew this was the way to go! (You can click HERE to see that post).

My sister took these great pictures when we visited her last summer of Kaitlin and they really turned out great. Sooo all I had to do was drop and drag. Easy peezy! Here is the template like it comes when you open it.

And the back of the post card. I  did tweak this area and personalized the text to include a few things that I wanted – but the basic layout is stock.

Well – I couldn’t leave it this way, right so I played around to incorporate school colors with Kaitlin.

I love the way the new upgrades to My Digital Studio allow you to change colors for the different elements! You can customize almost anything now! Whoohoo, right?

We had a blast changing and trying the different layouts and here is what Kaitlin finally liked. Notice the Tangerine Tango Glimmer Paper? It originally came with Champagne Glimmer Paper in the template. We tried Going Gray, Night of Navy and Pumpkin Pie and finally went with the Tangerine Tango option. (Our school colors are orange, blue, silver, and white so there were plenty to choose from.)

Kaitlin was excited about these. Which says a lot about My Digital Studio because she isn’t really my “stamper”, but loves to work with My Digital Studio, it’s defiantly more her style. She loves her tech gear and is always trying to get me up to speed.

We ended up designing three different versions of the graduation announcement. Uploaded them and quickly got them back, without ever leaving the house – the printing looks great and of course with Stampin’ Up! you know it will be great quality.

This was also a great budget option since I didn’t have to buy the graduation announcements and the photos! Which means more left over for the party and I’m using the Embark Graduate Ensemble to create party items too! Love the coordination – makes me smile to see everything match. And with the 25% off on My Digital Studio right now I’m lovin’ it. How about you? You can click HERE to see more about My Digital Studio and the latest downloads too.

Better go, because right now I’m working on those party invites and want to share them with you later in the week. We realized we needed an additional 27 for her friends last night after we stuffed all the family envelopes I’d done already – so I’m busy working to meet tomorrow’s deadline.
