I mentioned in an earlier post that I was planning on going back through my High School memory box and putting it all into an album. I have since completed this and I thought I'd share a few of my favorite pages as well as some of my thoughts on the process.
I knew I wanted a simple cover page in school colors (red and blue) with a picture of the school. I also chose to use red Thickers to spell it out. I included a few embellishments: red washi tape, a simple apple sticker and a theatre lights chipboard piece by Jolee's Boutique.
I don't think I've talked about my scrap style very much, but I personally believe the page should be all about the memories. So, I like to cover the page in memorabilia and then add a few stickers and embellishments rather than just a photo or two and large clusters of products. I also love that I was able to include my school ID from all 4 years.
My senior year was the "year of photos" for me. I ended up with 9 pages of Senior events (and the entire album is only 20 pages).
4 years of High School stuffed into 20 12x12 pages. There were so many things I found while going back through this box. Notes from friends passed during classes, pictures, notes from teachers, old tests and AP information, scripts, report cards, the list goes on and on. I am so happy to have this in an album now! This entire book took me 2 days, and only about $20 to throw together.
Obviously, shown above is not 20 pages. I included my favorite pages in this post. I will (eventually) have a video up on my Youtube channel (AlishasPinkDaisies) that will be an in depth tour and flip though of the album.
