I’m kicking it off today with the new stamp set For the Grad. I immediately thought of the stamp set Wonderful World. The globe was such a perfect fit with the graduation cap.

Have you seen all the amazing new word dies? Eeek! I’m in heaven with this release! I die cut Smile from black card stock and added the sentiment from the For The Grad stamp set.

How about some adorable puppies? Melanie has created this stamp set Puppies Galore filled with puppy cuteness. Tons of elements on here to customize your own little puppy. I really wanted to color this dog black because that’s the color of my dog but I thought a red lab would be easier lol.

I used Chocolate Truffle for my card base and Hugs die cut word. That sweet sentiment is also off of the Puppies Galore set.

I added a collar to my puppy but Melanie included a few other images you could add. She thought of everything!
