Project - Milestones: NJHS

Galleries: Scrapbooking

My son recently achieved a milestone in his academic career - getting inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. I was excited to scrapbook the photos I had from the evening induction, but also had other memorabilia I wanted to include on the layout.

I began by creating a large pocket on the right half of the layout using a yellow patterned paper from Elle's Studio. I cut it to 7 x 9.5 and stitched it on three sides to the background cardstock. This pocket was able to hold the event program, a certificate, and several tabbed index cards that I journaled on.

With the pocket in place, I designed the rest of the layout over the top, adding a grid of punched circles and tags, my photos (accented with polaroid-type frames from KI Memories and Heidi Swapp), and lots of little embellishments. One of the reasons I love grid designs so much is the opportunity the provide to add small finishing details in each section - it always puts a dent in my abundant embellishment stash!

I positioned my title vertically alongside the pocket, placing a Pebbles chipboard speech bubble above it to draw attention to it and add weight to that side of the page. I also traced the acrylic letters onto a white lined paper and cut out the matching letters to layer with the title. This step helps the title stand out from the background just a bit more.
