Here is a new twist for your DIY Graduation Scrapbook Layout. Add a picture from pre-school graduation! This page becomes much more fun when you have the “remember when” graduation image added to the layout.

How to make your own DIY Graduation Scrapbook Layout:
Step 1: Select your photographs. Preschool, elementary school, whatever you have available will work for your “remember when” photograph. Then pick your favorite pose of the current graduation picture.
Step 2: Choose two colors of cardstock that compliment the largest photo. School colors work perfectly for this. One color will be for the background and the other for accents.
Step 3: Cut the mats for your photographs and attach your photos using your adhesive applicator.
Step4: Cut or punch out a couple of designs from the same paper as your mats to make your embellishments. The ones you see here were made by stamping a design with blue ink on orange cardstock. The ink matches the background cardstock.
Step5: Add a vellum quote or journal box. I am still working on finding the perfect adhesive for vellum quotes. If you have had success attaching your quotes without the adhesive showing through, please share it with me. I would love to find a better way to paste these on.
Step 6: Place your matted photographs, embellishments and quote/journal box on the page. Move them around until you get a look that satisfies you. Then attach all to your page with your adhesive applicator.
And there it is! You just made a graduation scrapbook page that you and your graduate will love!
