Hello everyone and welcome back to our Kids Scrapbook Albums Project. We are creating a Hybrid Scrapbook Layout today to document Nick’s graduation from 8th grade. If you’d like to see more layouts from this project series, check out the link here: Larkindesign Kids Albums Project. Follow along with our process below!
For this layout, I am working with the Sahlin Studio Highs and Lows collection, which is the featured collection over on the site this month. This collection is a great choice for boy layouts with its blues and reds, and elements that go well for all children’s layouts.
I was first inspired by the striking patterned paper that points directly into the center of the page. This became the jumping off point for the whole design. I knew I wanted the journaling on the right hand side, so in Photoshop I opened up the background paper, and typed my words.
I knew I wanted my photos and embellishments to go on the left hand side, and I have loosely used an older template to inspire this page. This template is from March of 2019, and can be purchased along with other templates from last year here: Year Of Templates 19. The photos and journal cards are shown in the center, but I offset them to balance out the journaling.
The way they set up this ceremony made it hard to get a photo of him during the ceremony, but I had these two great photos that I love. One is with me, and the other is with his girlfriend at the time, Breanna. She has been in our layouts before! I still printed the photos in a vertical strip, which made it easier to adhere and keeps a cohesive look to the page. I also added a few tiny embellishments from Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper.
