It’s graduation season! This time of year it is so important to celebrate a young person’s rite of passage. We know that as proud parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends that you will be snapping lots of photos to remember the special occasion. A scrapbook page is an excellent gift to give, or keepsake to display. Today’s project is one that you’re going to love creating!
Get out your Border Trims Dies and supplies, and let’s make this scrapbook page together!
Border Dies Scrapbook Page
Finished Size: 12×12 scrapbook page
Using the Cricut® Cuttlebug™, die cut the 2 pieces of peach cardstock and 3 pieces of gold foil cardstock with the Border Trim die. (Note, we did not emboss).
Cut one of the Border Trim pieces horizontally, leaving a 3” piece and a 4” piece. Set both pieces aside.
Cut the two remaining gold foil Border Trim die cut pieces down the center, lengthwise.
Repeat for the two peach Border Trim die cut pieces.
Using the photo and cutting mat as a guide, cut the corners of the 4 long border trim strips at a 45 degree opposing angles to form the frame of the picture. This is called a mitered corner.
Repeat by mitering the corners of the peach border trim strips.
Using the cutting mat as a guide, cut each end of the ¼”x 11” strips of gold card stock at a 45 degree angle to make a mitered border for the edge of the page.
Picture Frame Assembly:
Align the gold Border Trim die cut pieces along the four sides of the picture, making sure the corners align.
Place the peach Border Trim die cut pieces approximately ¼” in from the gold foil Border Trim Die cut pieces. Adhere using double-sided adhesive.
Using double-sided adhesive, adhere the white and gold cardstock to the peach striped cardstock.
Align the gold ¼” strips of cardstock along the four sides of the gold and white cardstock piece, making sure the corners align. Secure with double sided adhesive.
Approximately 4” from the left side of the layout, adhere the gold 4” and 3” Border Trim die cut pieces as shown.
Using foam squares, adhere the photo and frame, making sure to cover the gap in the Border Trim die cut pieces.
Adhere the journaling tag using foam squares.
Using foam squares, attach the gold bow to the top of the journaling tag.
Attach the floral sticker embellishments as shown.
