Graduation Mini Albums

Do you have a child graduating this June? Or maybe she graduated last year and you haven't done anything with all those pictures you took before and after the ceremony. Maybe Grandma and Grandpa would love a keepsake of the Graduation Day as well? 

Since I do have a Grade 8 graduation this year and I need a gift album for my parents, I decided to make a workshop for all of my friends who also have children graduating in the near past or future. Is your graduation not for 2 years? Why not get it done now and you will be so happy when it finally arrives that you have that task already crossed off the to do list. Both styles of album are classic colours and designs so they won't look dated or too trendy.

Each kit will contain all of the supplies needed to make a 17 page mini album celebrating a Graduation Day with lots of spots for pictures of your grad in cap and gown, family and sibling photos, pictures with friends and favourite teachers, receiving their diploma and awards and, finally, pictures of the dance at the end of the night. 

I will be holding several workshops in my home to assist you in completing this project but it can easily be done on your own since all the pages will be pre-cut and detailed instructions are included. 

Workshops at my house will be held on 3 separate dates.  All of the workshops start at 6:30pm. You may be asked to join another workshop if minimum numbers are not met.

Wednesday, June 1st  Your order must be in to me by May 18th
Thursday, June 9th  Your order must be in to me by May 25th
Tuesday, June 14th  Your order must be in to me by May 29th

Both albums have the same title page and you can choose your own school colour for the title page. 

Classic Black and White Album Kit
$45 pre-cut pages ready to be assembled
$60 completed album ready for photos - yes I will put the album together for you and all you have to do is pick it up!

Here is a sneak peek at some of the pages in the album. If you are not a fan of the flowered paper there is a simple black and white pattern on the back that you can use instead.

You can also add a pocket page in between to hold wallet size photos

A spot to record your graduate's thoughts on his/her future plans
A spot to record their favourite things at this moment. Always something fun to look back on.
This is one of the pocket pages included in the kit. The "you got this" card is NOT included, it is a product from the extras list.  You have enough paper in the kit to use in the pocket pages but I loved the cards from the Beautiful You PML set so I wanted to incorporate them in my album
Another pocket page and Beautiful You card from the extras list

These are cards from the Beautiful You card kit that I stamped with the Smarty Pants stamp set.
