Making scrapbook calendar pages

When it comes to making your yearbook collage pages it’s easy to forget some of the events that have taken place over the school year. So why not dedicate a few pages in your book to a scrapbook calendar?

All you need is a 6 double-page spreads, a selection of different fonts and backgrounds, and a load of photographs. What could be easier?!

Take a look at the scrapbook we’ve made, and be sure to share your own creations with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram (@AllYearbooks).

What’s hot – TV and Music

When thinking about popular trends as we are growing up, it is so easy to forget! Whether it’s Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, or all the latest Disney there’s no doubt that at some point the common room has been discussing the latest cliffhanger or shock ending.

We have created some page designs for you to use to collect the ‘Top Hits’ and Netflix’s trending for you to use.   We’ve come up with a fun few of ways to create themed pages within your book.  If you like any of them just let us know when you next speak to a member of the team we can just add the page to your book for you to edit or keep it as it is.

Here at AllYearbook’s not a day goes by without “Have you seen…..”.  We love films, TV and music! We are all watching different things but generally the whole office gets involved with what’s on and someone is always recommending films and series to watch! 

Spotify themed page
Netflix themed page
In The News themed page

All of these layouts are available for you to use for completely free of charge in your Leavers Yearbooks. To use them all you need to do is once you have created a yearbook here – http://www.allyearbooks.co.uk/start and speak to one of the team in chat and ask us to add the page to your yearbook! It’s so simple and they look really good!

Making a text-heavy yearbook page

Having a page full of text doesn’t have to look boring!

Many schools decide to include a few text-heavy pages in their yearbook for many different reasons – it could be a welcome letter from the editor, a farewell speech from the Head of Year, or perhaps a summary of the school year from a teacher or pupil.

We’ve come up with a few different ways to put all the text on the page that you need, while making it easy to read. We’ve even included font suggestions for you!

Creative contents pages

While adding the finishing touches to your profile and collage pages it is easy to get swept up in the creation process and before you know it your print deadline is approaching.

The first page anyone will see once they’ve opened their shiny new yearbook is page one (obviously…) so it’s definitely worth putting a little thought in to using the page wisely.

A notebook-themed background can provide a simple yet effective base for a contents page. Add in a hand-written font such as Cedarville Cursive and you’ve upgraded your contents page in less than 10 minutes!

For a subtle, pretty contents page like our ‘Rainy Day’ example all you need is a couple of PNGs and a matching background. Or go for a gallery effect by browsing through our frame PNGs and selecting a couple to box your page names.

If you’ve got plenty of pages to play around with you could always have spread your contents over two pages. We’ve gone for a video game style page with a fun intro to set the tone of the book. Use your imagination to come up with different themes that could carry on throughout the whole book.

Celebrating Red Nose Day

As Red Nose Day approaches, be sure to take lots of photos of your fundraising events so you can add them into a yearbook collage!

Why not use a fun font (we’ve used Flavors) with a red spotty background? A few well-placed PNGs can also liven up the page while showcasing the achievements of the school.

Whether it’s a sponsored bike ride, fancy dress day, or a charity bake sale we love seeing all your pics online – be sure to share them with us on Twitter!

Trip pages

Why not dedicate a page within your book to your school trips? Whether it was a day out at the local farm, or somewhere a bit more exotic, getting members to upload and label their snaps will make putting together a collage a breeze.

Once you’ve got your photos sorted, be sure to take a look at our travel-themed PNGs. While scrolling through our clipart gallery you’ll be sure to find the perfect addition for your page.

We‘ve added a text box on top of a plane PNG to create a unique heading, while layering fill shapes and text boxes to make a cartoon passport and boarding pass.

Speak to your yearbook coordinator today for some ideas about jazzing up your trip pages!

World Book Day 2017 ideas

With today being the 20th World Book Day, we’ve been thinking about plenty of ways to incorporate the world of books into your pages.

One idea we have come with up is to mix up your World Book Day photos with a personal book journal. This idea will be great in primary school yearbooks as it encourages students to keep a record of what they are reading. Just set out a few questions on the page and leave spaces so they can hand-write their answers when they get home.

If you’d rather focus on adding photos to your pages, a quote can make a wonderful centre piece for your collage. We’ve gone with a classic Dr Suess quote, but the possibilities are endless!

We love seeing all of your fancy dress photos, they get more and more inventive each year! Keep up the good work and let us know if there is anything we can help you with.
