Introducing For the Graduate

Hello, friends!  Welcome to the very first day of the April Release Countdown!  As I said during the sneak peeks, I am SO incredibly excited to share all of the amazing sets we have coming out this month!  We will be focusing on some neglected areas of the stamping world and I am sure you will feel newly inspired by the end of the week!

Today, we are kicking off with one of of the sets that I personally designed for this month, entitled For the Graduate.  I've heard it time and time again…

"Papertrey needs to do a graduation set!"

"Please, please design a classic, tasteful graduation set!"

Well, you've waited long enough, and I am simply thrilled to bring you this new offering.  

The details.

  • For the Graduate will be available for purchase on April 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • It contains a total of 18 stamps (2 focal point images, 4 sentiments, 1 border and the numbers 1-9 along with two 0's)
  • The large frame focal point image coordinates with our new Mat Stack 1 die, retailing for $9 .

Graduating of any kind is such a monumental occasion.  Whether it be from Pre-school, Kindergarten, Middle School, High School or College, every one of them is a milestone that should be celebrated.  It means that the student is taking that next step in life.  That they've worked hard, they've dedicated themselves and succeeded at achieving their goals.

Class of 1997
I remember graduating from high school and all of the excitement and build-up that surrounded the event. I was SO excited to embark on the new chapter of my life, on my "own", as an "adult".  It's really one of those life moments that you never, ever forget.

And then there was Owen's graduation from pre-school.  Gosh.  I was an emotional wreck!  Our oldest child preparing to head off to real school… ALL day… every day!  It was hard to believe how big he had gotten.  How smart he was.  How fast he had grown up.  It was definitely a very special, important milestone for not only him, but our entire family!

Now, I'm sure you're thinking, quit the chitchat, Nichole, and let's get to the projects!

But wait a minute.  For those of you who may be getting ready to tune out because you don't have any graduates in your life, you just may possibly want to STAY TUNED for some fun you can have with this set for everyday cards as well.  Just sayin'… you will most likely need the graduation elements eventually anyway, why not enjoy the rest of the set too while you're waiting?  :)

Hats off card
My first project has a bit of a masculine flair, perfect for guys graduating from high school or college.  The background is created with Lisa Johnson's new A Little Argyle set.  The solid diamonds are stamped in Scarlet Jewel, while the dashed lines are stamped in Dark Chocolate.  A little Dark Chocolate Twill is run through the center for a little added texture.

Hats off sentiment
It all started with the sentiment when it comes to the building of the focal point.  The sentiment was stamped with Dark Chocolate ink.

Hats off stamp
I designed this sentiment so that you could easily nest the cap between Hats & Off.  The cap is stamped in Scarlet Jewel ink.

Hats off close up
This is one of my favorite projects!   So simple and easy to replicate in a variety of colors.

Dreams card
This card is a bit more feminine and focuses on the largest sentiment from the set.   The background paper is from the Pretty Pastels paper pad.    The bottom two corners are rounded for added pizzaz. 

Dreams closeup
The sentiment is stamped in Hibiscus Burt in onto Stamper's Select white cardstock and trimmed into a rectangle.  I ran a 2-way glue pen along the edges of the block and sprinkled them with prisma glitter before they dried.

Glitter star

The star was created with Hibiscus Burst cardstock and the Fiskars star punch we carry in our store.  I put it through my xyron sticker maker to adhere all the glitter in place.

Now, moving onto a more basic design that could easily be mass-produced as graduation announcements and the like.

Class of stamp
The strip along the bottom is one large border stamp, minus the numbers.

Class of numbers
The numbers are included as separate, individual stamps.  I recommend stamping the number the furtherest to the right, then working your way to the center.  Pretty classy, huh?!?!

Mat Stack die

As I mentioned earlier, the Mat Stack 1 die is designed to coordinate with the frame in this set.  It is easiest to die-cut the frame first, then stamp your image.  Here, I've done just this in True Black.

Announcement closeup
The frame image is adhered with foam dimensionals to make it pop.  All of this is adhered to a True Black card base.

Wishing you card
This card is modeled after the ribbons handed out at county fairs..  

Punching out grad images
Note that you can utilize the graduation image in the center of the frame system, separately, as l show above.

Wishing you closeup
The sentiment is stamped in Ocean Tides, while the focal point is stamped in Aqua Mist.  Once matted onto the scalloped circle, I added strips of Aqua Mist Twill from the bottom to help recreate the original "blue ribbon idea"

Now one of the interesting design features about this set that I wanted to point out to you is regarding the graduate frame, the large focal point of the set.  I thought of something pretty clever while designing it that I know will leave you reaching for this set constantly.   

In fact, I've already received confirmation from a few of the Design Team members that this image, along with it's coordinating die, is a SO great, they can't hardly put it down!

The cap & tassel image in the center is contained in a circle that measures 1.75-inches, which also happens to be the same diameter of elements from several other Papertrey sets. 

The list includes…

Now, how many of you own at least ONE set from that list?  I know the majority of you are nodding your heads in agreement!  With the frame image in For the Graduate, you can complement all of these sets in new and fresh ways that you will LOVE!  

There's two ways to use it.

#1: Layer it.

Leaf thinking of you card
Leaf thinking of you closeup

Simply punch out your 1.75" image and layer directly on top of the mat with foam dimensionals, effectively covering up the graduation based images that are part of the frame.

#2: Punch it.

Apple thank you card

Punch a window out of the center of the frame using your 1.75" circle punch, effectively removing the unwanted graduation images, and layer images behind the opening.

I've showcased examples & step-by-step instructions for both methods in a little video that David and I put together for you today…

So…did I surprise you with just how versatile this set is?  Not to mention how many different types of graduations there are to celebrate nowadays, with each and every child in your life!  We would love to hear your first impressions of this set!  Leave a comment today letting us know what you think and you could have a chance to win a fantastic prize package that will work SO cohesively together!

    This is what I have ALWAYS loved about PaperTrey. You guys give so much thought to what works together.

    This is a beautiful set. I rarely need a graduation set, but I do love the label background.

I have lots of hat stamps!

  • 283
    Adrienne says:

    How do you do it? How is it that you can make me break my “no spending” resolution? Sigh. I suppose I can fit these new items into the “I’ll-die-if-I-don’t-get-them” emergency category of shopping! Fantastic, beautiful and amazing. I can’t wait to get my hands on them!

    I shouldn’t be surprised at the versatility because that is one of the things PTI does so well but I really was excited to see the great ways to use this cute frame other than for graduation. And I am really excited for the other products we saw a peek of today as well!

  • 409
    Nancy M says:

    This set is much more versatile than a graduation set would imply. The ‘dreams believed’ could be used in many contexts and ‘wishing you’ would work for a new job. I’m glad that you thought of the extra zero, just wished you’d put in an extra two also. The year is going to be starting with that numeral for quite a while yet. Are there plans for more stamps to work with that die? Just wondering.

  • 430
    Carmen says:

    You amaze me Nichole!!! You just made a specific stamp set into a very versatile set! I usually try to stay away from baby, graduation, wedding, etc. sets because I know that they can only be used for one thing. But, your graduation set is going into my must have list along with the die!

  • 431

    Tina-Marie says:

    Oh My!!! My wish list just keeps getting bigger and bigger!!! Good thing I have the take note set, so I can stamp a note to self – buy one of everything!! My daughter just graduated last year, and I didn’t have a really great set to use. I am sure I’ll find plenty of uses for this set (grandson, me (when I go for my masters!)) You ladies really do put so much thought into each set, and you push all of to look for new ways to use all your products. Thank you!! I love the coordinated dies, impression plates and stamps – first class all the way!

    At first, I thought a grad set… I don’t know how much I would use that but after reading through everything you have posted today… I am very excited and inspired!

  • 588

    Impossible to imagine more impeccable projects — just love the frame and all its uses. Have not tried the dies yet, and am blinded by the brilliance of having all these items that coordinate so well. Oh, to win this package!

  • 589
    Lori V. says:

    I haven’t seen all the images, and the graduation set is already perfect! I love that you can use the frame with other sets and that it will have a matching die!

    Roxanne says:

    I don’t know how you always find that “next level” to keep me so inspired. I knew the graduation set would be “good” from PTI, but holy cow – all of the elements are so well thought out. Love the giant sentiment, and was really wowed the “class of” with the lines. And to top it all off the cool frame and die to go with the focal point. Absolute genious! And the new argyle set is phenomenal too…can’t wait to get my hot hands on these guys!

  • 596

  • 597
    dette says:

    I love everything so far. As I stated on Lisa’s blog, her idea of making your own argyle patterns from mixing and matching different stamps is pure genius. Dawn’s wood-grain stamps are different than any others I’ve seen. And I love how you designed a Graduation set and matched it with the Mat Stack die to make it a versatile set. It’s only Day 1, and I already want to hit the “I Want it All” button!

  • 598

    What a fun graduation set! Love that you can use it for other occasions as well — versatility is always great! πŸ™‚ Definitely like bang for the buck!

  • 603

    annheidel says:

    You know, I was thinking “what a nice grad set – very classy” as I was reading through your post and then when I saw the mat stack image, I about gasped. Love this design!!! My first thought was, “oh I hope the center part is a separate stamp so I can use the frame for regular cards”, and then you showed ways to do that despite it being part of the image. πŸ™‚ I really HOPE you will have more frame images to fit that die shape too!

  • 614

    WOW! WOW! WOW! All your samples are beautiful & I can not believe how versatile! You guys never cease to amaze! I love countdown week!!!

    Okay, I have to admit I wasn’t planning on buying this set. I just don’t have any graduations coming up in the next few years. After seeing what you and the design team have done with it, I am hooked. There are so many ideas that you showcased with the other label sets that I want to try. I can see using the dreams sentiment on projects other than graduation – like birthday or encouragement cards and scrapbook pages. I have to say that I love the classic graduation images so far. I am looking forward to the full set! Thank you again for a great preview.
