I donated an album for our school’s auction that will be on May 5th. I wanted it to be simple enough that a non scrapper could look at it and think “Hey, I can do that!” but nice enough that scrapbookers would want it, too!
I used mostly the Cheerful Power Palette and the retired Primary Power Palette. These all worked so well together! Titles and the custom elements were cut on my Silhouette. I matted each sticker, title & other elements in black cardstock throughout the album so that it would give the album a unified look.
The album is designed to showcase pictures from a child’s years at St. Michael’s school (K – 8) but they can be rearranged if needed and adapted for other years & schools.
For each grade I did a page with the year’s title and another layout left mostly empty so a class photo, larger school picture, report card or other item could be displayed. I also included a set of Storybox Photo Mats & Journal Boxes in the auction so that they could add more photos if they want. Photo Mats are pieces of pre-cut paper that are just a tad bigger than a 4x6 photo so they make matting photos a breeze! I also donated a new Tape Runner, Dual Tip Black Pen, ABC Stickers and an hour of my time to help the winner of the auction get started.
Most of the stickers and elements I adhered with Foam Squares to make them pop off the page a bit.
Besides pages for each grade I did some for holidays – hoping that pictures of class parties and other fun holiday happenings can have a home. I also did pages for Holy Communion, Confirmation & one that can be used for anything school related or sports.
You can view the whole album below (except for one of the Christmas pages I forgot to take a photo of).
I hope it raises a bunch of money for the school! If you’re local, stop by the auction – they are going to have lots of wonderful things to bid on!
