Preserving achievement certificates with Virginia Nebel!

Preserving achievement certificates with Virginia Nebel!

July greetings! I hope everyone is having an awesome beginning to their summer! It's so true that life really is better in flip flops, tee hee! 

With graduations and end of school award ceremonies last month you might have a certificate or two that you are wanting to incorporate directly on to your scrapbook page. For my daughters achievement to her purple belt in karate, I took the 8.5 x 11 (landscape) certificate and photo copied it at 70% reduced size. 




I  used the entire smaller certificate as part of my photo arrangement and I love how easy all the pertinent details of the award presentation are captured.  Hope you have a wonderful day!

    What a great idea!!! A friend and I were just discussing how she could put her son’s achievement awards on display in one frame and this would be perfect for that! Thanks for the inspiration!

    That is brilliant, downsizing the certificate. Love!

    What a great idea! You could even fancy it up and use the Minc machine to add some foil if you’re using a copy.
