Graduation Layout by Laura C.

Now that those graduations are over, do you have pics waiting to be scrapped?? This layout is great, because it will fit YOUR pics. No right or wrong....just use these cute file tabs (NEW Tim Holtz On the Edge File Tabs Die!!) to label or journal your pics. Super simple.....just cut pics and mats (in school colors) arrange the way you want, and you're good to go!! A border on a page creates a nice frame, so I used 2x12 strips cut from the same cardstock used to mat pics. Extra
touches make a page, so I used a little AC glitter cardstock to "bling it up", some grad ribbon, the clocks (since it's "time" to celebrate, and they are set at 8 going on 9 because that was the change in grades). I used the Tim Holtz Lost & Found paper pad, cut the clocks out of one of the pages, roughed up the edges and then used Tim Holtz Chipped Sapphire distressing inks (used this on all the file tabs and mats as well!). Lastly, the diploma on the left is made using a 2" x 5 & 1/2" piece of paper folded and distressed. I've included pics to show how it was folded and also
an example of a card made using the same technique...I used rock candy distress crackle paint to make the diploma "pop". Hope you've grabbed some you can grab those pics, and get scrappin'!!
