Starting 4 years ago I started doing a 8 1/2″x11″ scrapbook layout of all the graduation announcements that I received. I use to throw them all in a box with all of the other cards I received. I felt a little guilt because of the awesome pics that were never to be seen again as well as the expense of the announcements. This is a perfect way to organize them and then to enjoy them later on.
I must admit that I had to trim down a lot of the announcements. The only one I didn’t trim or cover up was the one of my niece Haley. I just thought that it was perfect to announce what the page was about. Before trimming and layering pictures and announcements I used a black sheet of cardstock and covered it with velum that had stars all over it. It doesn’t show a lot but I really like where it peeks through. I added some stickers in bigger blank spots and then called the page done. I really like it. So far I have four layouts in two page protectors. I just have them in a basket at this point. In a few years I will probably invest in an album.
Tell me this isn’t a great idea. 🙂
Love to all!
