Hello Pebbles friends! It’s Monique here today, sharing a Tealightful graduation layout for “Teacher Appreciation” week. Last year was an exciting year as both my daughter and my eldest son graduated from high school. Although I created many layouts about my daughter’s graduation, I didn’t scrap a single one about my son’s. When I saw the theme for this week, I knew what I wanted to do — create a layout celebrating my son’s graduation as well as a tribute to his awesome teacher. I used Pebbles’ awesome Tealightful collection to create this page.
I’m thrilled I finally got this page done! I struggled finding a collection for a “boy layout” and although this collection isn’t exactly masculine, it works perfectly!
Here’s how this page came together. First, I selected the products I thought I was going to use: leftover scraps of patterned paper, little squares cut from the Tea Party Sentiments sheet, (puffy) stickers, die-cuts, and the Pink Glitter Foam Thickers.
As the squares from the Tea Party Sentiments sheet measure 5 x 5 cm, I cut all other squares in this same size. Some of the squares I cut through diagonally, making them into triangles. Next, I arranged all the squares and triangles on a sheet of white cardstock.
When I was satisfied with the placement of all the squares, I put a little bit of adhesive behind them and machine stitched them next.
Following the stitching, I adhered the photo to the top of the layout and arranged die-cuts and stickers around it. I thought the “Here’s to New Adventures” die-cut was perfect for this occasion! Next, I had to decide where to place the Thickers. For a little while I wondered whether or not to use the pink glitter Thickers for my son’s layout, but in the end, I decided to just go for it and I am so glad I did!
I’m really happy with the result (and so is my son!).
Here’s one more close-up of the awesome puffy stickers (I sooo love these!).
