Celebration Pages in Honor of the Closing Ceremonies

Hey there! I hope you’ve enjoyed the 2010 Winter Olympics and our Olympic-inspired scrapbooking ideas these past two weeks. In honor of the closing ceremonies scheduled this weekend, we’re pleased to bring you celebration-themed pages—layouts that rejoice in and commemorate happy events, accomplishments, and relationships. Take a look at the following categories, and then scrapbook a layout celebrating something wonderful in your life.

1. Firsts and milestones. Many first-time experiences are happy events that mark a significant moment of your life—your first day at a new job, your first car, or your first home, for example. Smaller firsts may also be meaningful to you and worthy of mention on a scrapbook page, such as your child’s first day at school, the first spring flower in your garden, or your pet’s first successful attempt at a new trick.

2. Birthdays. Commemorate your special day with a scrapbook page. And yes, that’s your birthday too—not just the kids’ birthdays!

3. Weddings, anniversaries, and engagements. Keep these important celebrations fresh in your memory with pages highlighting the most memorable images and happenings from the event.

4. Babies. If there’s a baby in your life, then chances are good you also have thousands of photos of the little one on your computer. Choose your favorites to create special pages that document how tiny and sweet your baby is.

5. Accomplishments. Scrapbook your successes—from goals met to obstacles overcome. Possible topics include graduations (from preschool to college), promotions or raises at work, sports achievements, and more.

6. Your favorite things. Remember to celebrate the little things as well by recording what makes you happy right now. Your favorite song, your favorite color, the funny nickname your two-year-old has for the dog. Make a list and scrapbook it. Include photos if you have them, or make the layout design all about your words, like Deena Wuest did on her page.

7. Very good days. Record the everyday happenings that make your life happy. Maybe the moments special to you are starting the day with a favorite breakfast, taking an evening stroll with a friend,  or spending time in your garden.

    Hi, Christina! To create the “100” layout, I simply typed the number 100 in Photoshop and enlarged it to fill the entire page. Then I added each line of text in a separate text box and adjusted the size and font until they fit perfectly inside. When all the text is entered simply delete the “100” layer. Super simple…just takes a little time. :) If you’re looking for a similar but quicker option, there are also digital templates you can buy that will fit text neatly inside shapes/numbers/letters. Hope that helps!

    Hi there to all, because I am actually eager of reading
    this website’s post to be updated on a regular basis.
    It carries good material.

  7. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    if like to read it then my links will too.
