Scrap your Graduate with Want2Scrap and Paper House

I was thrilled to find that Want2Scrap has an overlay for Graduation!  Add some themed stickers from Paper House and you can finish this layout in about an hour!

The laser cut overlay is black and white which makes it easy to customize with colors from your son's or daughter's school.   This is how it looked before I started:.
I trimmed the overlay down so that it is an 11.5" square and backed the openings with Designer paper before centering it on a piece of gold cardstock. The black cardstock base is great for letting your embellishment clusters *pop* off the page!   I used a mix of flat cardstock stickers and 3D stickers.  I just love dimension!

Here I used one of the openings in the overlay to frame (2) smaller photos and a group of embellishments.

Sometimes I do actually fill the openings with a photograph - like this one of my son receiving his diploma!

The laurel wreath on the left hand side was cut, embossed and stenciled with a die from Spellbinders.

The final touch was a black rhinestone Swirls Finesse!

Need more options? Here are 2 more graduation layouts I created using overlays from Want2Scrap. (Clicking on the image will take you to the original blog post.)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
