Using Ephemera

Hello Scapping Warriors,

We are in it through the long haul.  We are determined to scrap our memories and to enjoy doing so.  We may have lulls but we won’t give up.  That is a pep talk for us all.  We won’t be discouraged and feel like our efforts are unappreciated.

After Tim’s graduation I had a lot of decorations around the house (still have a few).  I could have just tossed all of them (did a few) but I decided to try and use some of them in his scrapbook.

A balloon holder for helium balloons.

I almost trashed this item but decided that I could use the graduation caps.  It sat on my scrapping desk for quite awhile but then I got busy with it.  I cut off most of the caps and then tossed the rest of it into the trash.

I then got busy making my page.

One of the rewards that Tim received.

First I trimmed down the certificate (just the edges).  Then I adhered it to the right side of the cardstock, leaving room at the top and bottom.  I then started gluing on the caps from the balloon holder.  It was pretty messy and some of the glue started showing.  I then started adding other graduation cap stickers that I already had (strategically placing them over a few glue splatters).  I included the extra 2017 cap stickers from his announcements.  I like that touch.  I added a sticker that says, “I’m done!” and one that says, “The tassel was worth the hassle!”.  Last I added the cap that has a lot of bling onto the document itself.

Nice!

God bless!

  1. That is a neat way of using the hats for a border’s It’s fun when you think of a way to use different things, Congratulations to Tim .

  2. Such a cute idea. Love it when you finally find just the right thing for the page. Was the tassel worth your hassle? I know it’s a challenge to get a kid through school. I’m done, no more homework. yeah!!! (Tim’s motto) The cap sticker is a real keeper. Happy page. Happy parent. Happy kid.
