Celebrate Grads and Dads

May and June: Graduation and Father's Day Scrapbooking

It's almost that time for graduation ceremonies! This is an occasion that is so worthy of celebrating with a scrapbook. Funny how this happens every year and yet, there are so few scrapbooking products designed for grads. I keep looking for graduation scrapbooks and paper with a graduate theme. I found some brand new paper, stickers and albums. Fortunately, no one got cute with the product names and made a paper design called Mrs. Robinson! (Sorry, but I can't help thinking about that movie when I see the words "The Graduate.") Here is what is currently available for 2009 graduation scrapbooking:

Some of my favorite graduation designs on scrapbook paper
is this Reminisce
- Graduation Collection - 12 x 12 Flocked Paper - Graduation Day
. This design looks almost like an M.C. Escher print!:

Here's a pretty, more subtle design in silver foil:

Another scrapbook brand with some graduation scrapbook paper
is Creative Imaginations with their:

Grads Rule Collection
- 12 x 12 Varnish Paper - Diploma

Creative Imaginations Grads Rule Paper

Look at this new Karen Foster paper with a graduation theme:

Karen Foster Design - Graduation Collection - 12 x 12 Paper - Commencement

Karen Foster Commencement Collage

I realize these designs are supposed to look formal (which is why they used such dark shades) but I like a bit more color. Here are a couple that are brighter in tone. First is by Creative Imaginations:

Cap and Gown - Diploma

This graduation paper has softer hues:

Karen Foster Design - Graduation Collection - 12
x 12 Paper - Diploma Day

Karen Foster Paper - Graduation

That is a start for finding paper for grads, now lets look at some for dads! It can be difficult deciding on a Father's day present. A scrapbook could be a great solution - who wouldn't want a scrapbook all about them!?

This is a good start of where to find graduation and Father's Day scrapbook papers. I hope to show some stickers and rub-ons in another post. Go on, celebrate with a scrapbook!
