The Graduates: Boston College Layout Inspiration

Hi Everyone, it's Kathy today with a layout I created using the new The Graduates collection.  This was the perfect collection to create my project celebrating my 25th (gulp) reunion from college!  You have to love the '80's big hair!


The best thing about The Graduates is that you can customize it to go with almost any school color scheme!  I pulled out the gold and black pieces from the collection and added some maroon cardstock... perfect for my alma mater!


The back drop for my title was created using some of the gold Sprinkles Vellum.  If you haven't tried it yet, it's wonderful and it cuts well using your electronic die cut machines!

I wanted to show off some more of the patterned papers so I added a little 3x4 card and filled in the circles with different papers.
For final accents I added some of the stickers from the Icon Sticker sheet and some of the new Graduation Star Sprinkles!  They're so sparkly!  Make sure to stop back and check out all of the design team's creations this week!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!
