Scrapbook Layouts

Hi! Today I thought I'd share some scrapbook pages that I made. I was asked by Abby's preschool to design a scrapbook page for a teacher that was retiring. I had so much fun switching gears from card making to scrapbooking - it has definitely made me want to scrapbook more! I have so many wonderful pictures and they really should be on a page or wall rather than a box!!

The school bought the cutest album PERFECT for a teacher. Instead of putting a picture I made a subtitle.

Next is the title page. I used a quote that the preschool requested, along with the teachers years of service at CUMPS.

I then made layouts that the teacher could add photos to. The preschool had a staff party for her, which is what this layout is for. Here is page 1:

and page 2

So what do you think? The paper is from Imaginise. The apples are stamps (also from imaginise) that I cut out. The stamp had a "face" which I didn't want so I just cut it out - one of the good things you can do with unmounted stamps!!

I did a few more pages (which I'll share later). This album was a complete surprise to the teacher and she absolutely loved it. I've agreed to do a few more pages for the teacher - she'll pick the photos and the events and I'll scrapbook them for her. I love seeing the end results make a person happy and know that they will treasure it for years to come!

Thanks for stopping by - have a great day!!

this is awesome! i cannot scrapbook for the life of me. well, i probably can but it would have to be a 6x6 because a 12x12 is just waaayy toooooo big for me and it would never be as beautiful as this is. of course she loved it. who wouldn't!

I agree with Stef, 12 x 12 intimidates me so much!! I so admire the wonderful work you did with these pages.
