Graduation Quotes and Word Art for Your Scrapbook Layouts

Use graduation quotes and printable word art on your paper or digital scrapbook layouts and projects — for titlework, embellishing, and even journaling.

Here are some quotations and sayings about achievement and growth and moving on that are perfect for your graduation pages and greeting cards. Maybe they’ll even give you new ideas for approaching this topic for your graduate.

I pulled a few of these quotes and some of my favorite fonts and put together free printable word art for your layouts (in color or black and white). I’m also including a png file of the word art for using with your digital scrapbook pages. AND I’m including the layered psd file in case you want to change the fonts and colors.

The colors I used are from a catalog of graduation cap and gown colors – lots of rich jewel tones.

Download pdf for printing – page 1 in color and page 2 in black and white

Download zipped png for including on your digital scrapbook pages

Download zipped psd if you want to play around with the fonts and colors yourself.
