Rad Grad Layouts


From preschool to college, graduation ceremonies are in full swing across the country this month. Commencement is a huge milestone in the lives of loved ones, be it from kindergarten, eighth grade, high school or law school. These special moments deserve scrapbook space, even if it means creating a single layout. However, in most cases, the monumental event typically warrants at least a few pages, if not an entire memory album unto itself.

These days it is easy to find ways to craft multiple rad grad layouts. Scrapbook supply shops are filled with graduation-themed embellishments, from diploma-shaped die cuts to confetti stickers and tassel stamps. In addition to mementos and journaling blocks, another element to include on a commencement-themed layout is famous quotes or sayings that convey an inspirational message to your graduate.

Some examples include:

“We must teach our girls that if they speak their mind, they can create the world they want to see.”–Robyn Silverman

“You don’t raise heroes, you raise sons. And if you treat them like sons, they’ll turn out to be heroes, even if it’s just in your own eyes.”–Walter M. Schirra, Sr.

“Don’t go through life, grow through life.”–Eric Butterworth

“Today we learn, Tomorrow we lead…”–Author Unknown

“Some people come into our lives and leave footprints on our hearts and we are never ever the same.”–Flavia Weedn

“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”–Walt Disney

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.”–Dr. Seuss

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”–Les Brown
