Graduation Pages

First of all, we'd like to share another award we found in our email this morning . . .

Thank You to Amanda W. from somewhere out in blog-land!

She wrote " I love the chalk tip on your blog. I used to use mine so long ago, but mainly for shading. I never would have thought to use them on photos or even printing my pix out on stock! Thank You!"

Well, you are very welcome Amanda W. . . . glad to help!

Now then . . . . on to our Graduation Pages for today.
We're gonna share a really easy layout that can be completed in about 20 minutes.

You don't always need themed papers for you pages.
Sometimes, simpler is better . . . .and more elegant.

We used just black cardstock & some metallic gold paper for this page along with just 1 photo and the invitation.

We cut the info from the inside of the invite and mounted it below the invitation.

Then of course, there's the Senior Portrait with the name cards that always fall out and get lost . . .

And if you have an empty corner, add some something simple to enhance the main items ~ not over-power them.

On this page, I laid a plastic stencil down and globbed on a thick layer of glue stick.

Then I covered the glue with gold embossing powder & melted it with my heat gun.
In the center is are some plain white petals with a brad.

It's simple but very nice . . . AND inexpensive!
Didn't spend more than 2 bucks on this one!
So hang onto those invitations and programs & make sure to add them into your memory books. You'll be glad someday that you did!
