True Fit Folios Continued

Well here's another 5 done for my 19 year old daughters graduation present on June 28th. I buy the True Fit Folios from Close To My Heart. I trim the right hand corner of the front page to curve it. I then pick paper that matches my kids outfits. Most of the papers I used are Close To My Heart as I've been buying up tons of paper packs over the years and not using them. I cut out 2 circles with my circle nestibilities. The big one and one of the middle circles are the 2 I used. I stamped them with Close To My Heart stamp sets. I lined the inside with a co-ordinating card stock and matched that to the front for the strip and grade #'s which were cut out with my Cricut Expressions. I added 11 brads on the sides to close them. Inside I will fill them with report cards, awards, etc. The co-ordinating pages will include special moments, highlights, friends lists, etc.
Hope it's not raining where you are, because the weather is really crappy here in Ontario, Canada.
Hugs xx

Hi Carolyn,
These are fabulous. What a fabulous keepsake for these kids when they look back on their schooldays.
Weather here is really warm but not a lot of sunshine. William has finished all the planting in the garden so some overnight rain would be welcome.

Hi Carolyn,
I have spent most of this afternoon Scrapbooking, your pages are lovely, how sweet doing this for your daughter. When my daughter had her 18th Birthday a year and a half ago, I made her a book and she loves it. It's her and her boyfriends recent holiday to Egypt book I am working on now, mind you I have just one page to finish off before the football at 7and then it's done.
Do you love making them? I do, they are so special to do. Debbiexx

Fabulous pages, Carolyn! You've inspired me to get back on track with my school albums that I started for my kids. Love the design with the file folder tab they are beautiful and such a great gift. Your daughter is going to love it!
