Create a scrapbooking layout as a tribute to a favorite friend. Here's what you need to get started:
Patterned paper for background
White paper for captions
Paper cutter or scissors
My sister-in-law is graduating from high school this year, and my mother-in-law and I are starting a scrapbook for her to give to her as a graduation present. One of the pages will be a layout of her and my step-daughter.
First I went to the computer and typed out some captions. If you don't see a font you like, go to Google.com and type in "free fonts" to download a variety of great scrapbooking fonts. I typed my step-daughter's name vertically in a very large font (in a color that coordinated with the background paper) and printed it out on a piece of paper. I then typed "Friends are Forever" on a separate sheet of paper, in the center of the page, and printed it out.
For the first caption, I used the paper cutter to cut my step-daughter's name into a long, narrow strip.
The next caption took a little planning. I started out with a white piece of paper with "Friends are Forever" printed in the center. I then glued the two photos I had chosen on the sheet of paper, directly above and below the caption (see photo). I next used my paper cutter to trim away the excess white paper, leaving about 3/4-1 inch around the edges.
I glued the paper with the photos glued to it on the lefthand side of the patterned paper, and then inserted the eyelets to accent the corners of white piece of paper (see photo). I then glued my step-daughter's name vertically on the righthand side of the page. Picture perfect!
