Designing Special Graduation Layouts
If you want to make a special layout that is truly a one-of-a-kind graduation statement that fits your graduate's style, try these ideas:
- If your graduate has a class ring, you can photograph it against a solid, contrasting background to include in the scrapbook. Also, photograph the cap tassel and any honors cords or sashes the same way.
- Take a few snapshots of the school and any meaningful classrooms or sports venues. Then enlarge these and fade them in your image editing software to use as digital backgrounds or print them to use for traditional scrapbooking. Be sure to print on acid-free paper.
- Use the earliest school photo you can find to contrast with the current grad photo, showing just how far the graduate has come.
Make Graduation Even More Special
Recording everything about graduation day in a special scrapbook is a fantastic and thoughtful way to keep these treasured memories. A graduation scrapbook makes the perfect gift for any graduate, and these layouts will help you put it together quickly and easily.
