Free Printable Graduation Cards

These post for Free Printable Graduation Cards contains affiliate links. I make a small portion when these links are used, at no additional cost to you.

These free Printable Graduation Cards actually started out as simple inspirational cards I made for some friends at a conference last week. But, when someone told me they wanted to have a couple to use as graduation cards, I realized that was the perfect idea! Grab these free printable graduation cards below.

I love a good, inspirational card. And graduations are the perfect time to inspire a young (or not-so-young) person as they embark on a new adventure. Grab either of these designs for my free printable graduation cards below.

Six Nurses Week Printables

These Six Nurses Week Printables are just in time for celebrating some of our favorite healthcare workers. Nurses Week is just around the corner. These make fantastic and inspiring gifts...or even decor in a common area. Grab your Nurses Week printables below. These are a part of my Premium Printables line.

Nurses Week Printables
My biggest request is to create more printables in this specific watercolor block lettering look. Last week, I had a reader ask for nurses week prints in this popular format. I actually had been toying around the idea of nurses week printables, so it worked out perfectly. Nurses are the ones in the trenches...saving lives and caring beyond measure every single day. What a great way to celebrate them with their own special week. 

Or see the details of each printable below.

Farmhouse seems to be all the rage right now. I live an hour from Chip & Jo, so I feel like it's super farmhouse-y around these parts. While I have a bit more of an eclectic style, I certainly appreciate the sweet look of farmhouse decor.

It's Thrifty Style Team day! Yay! I'm sharing this DIY Map Wall Art...it was budget-friendly, easy-to-put-together, and packs a fun design punch. See how simple it is to put together your own Map Wall Art below.

Paris and London Maps
My husband is actually the map collector in our family. He loves all kinds of maps and makes it a point to buy a new atlas every year, even though Waze replaced those atlases (atli?) for us a few years back. He just loves to see the lay of the land in map form. I was wanting to change out a piece of artwork in our bedroom and I knew our recent map souvenirs from spring break would be perfect. See how this Map Wall Art came together below.
