Graduation Bitty Album

The graduation card (posted on Monday, May 30) now has a companion: the Bitty Book album. This special album will keep the day's memories with friends and family.

The Graduation DSP used was the perfect colors for the So Saffron and Glorious Green School colors. The spinning diploma is perfect. Scraps from left over graduation DSP had the perfect words: Congratulations to back the inside of the spinning track. SU Top Note die popped with dimensionals, the So Saffron layer is using the Cuttlebug Numbers Collage embossing folder. Words "Class of" is from the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge and "2011" is cut using the SCAL Brush Stroke Font from my computer sized 1".

And, here's a closer view of the diplomas spinner. Punch So Saffron with 1" and Glorious Green with 1-1/4" Circle punches, adhere to pennies sandwiched between the Word Window punched tracks. The diploma is a free SVG cut file using SCAL (sure cuts a lot) from - it has been resized to fit the 1" punched circle (love that!). Diploma ties with 1/4" black satin ribbon and popped with a dimensional.

The graduation hat is also a free SVG cut file from using SCAL - it has been resized to 7/8" high, popped with a dimensional onto the So Saffron background. The Green brad holds the Yellow embroidery floss made into a tassel.

The spine:

Details of the spine charms: 1/4" satin ribbon reflects the school colors. Store purchased metals hearts along with alphabet beads spelling out my Grand Niece's name worked out so perfect.

Remove the album from the case to show a simple message:

Can you believe I found this "Memories" stamp in my stash. It is part of the 25 Disney Scrapbooking stamps? So Saffron size is 2-1/2" x 7/16", Glorious Green is 2-3/4" x 9/16".
