Cap & Gown | Sarah Millerhouse

Hello, Bella Blvd friends! It's Sarah Millerhouse here, and I am excited to share my first layout featuring the beautiful Cap & Gown collection! 


I absolutely loved digging into this beautiful collection! The patterns and embellishments are truly fantastic! I started by creating the blocks of patterned paper across the middle of my layout. I cut the blocks 4 inches tall by 3 inches wide, and I distressed the edges of each block. I layered these on top of one of the black patterned papers. This contrast helped the patterned papers make a statement! 


Above and below this strip of paper across the middle, I added Distress Ink and Distress Oxides in Salvaged Patina to create a pop of color. I used a star stencil from my stash and Distress Oxide in Broken China to add the stars to the background. 


I added my sweet photos from my son's pre-k graduation, and I backed those with the same black patterned paper. Below the photos, I used Ciao Chip pieces to create my title and add detailing to this area. I placed puffy stickers below the title and on my photo. I love the dimension this adds!

Above my photos, I added all the great stars from this collection! I love the silver foiling found on so many of the embellishments and how rich they make the layout feel.


I created a shaker pocket using a star cut on my Cricut and the silver foiled Clear Cut found in the collection! I filled it with the sequin mix that is jam packed with sparkle and shine! I love that it makes the page interactive and so much fun for my kids to turn in our album!


I added a few more embellishments and pieces of ephemera. I also used Liquid Pearls in coordinating colors to add a little more shine around the embellishment clusters. I finished the layout by adding my journaling about this sweet memory!

I loved featuring the Cap & Gown collection on this layout that captured such an important memory for our family! I hope you enjoy creating with it as much as I did! I hope you have a beautiful day!!
