Quick & Easy Graduation Sampler

This spring, many of you will be celebrating a graduation in your household.  Whether it’s a graduation from kindergarten to college, it’s an important rite of passage that deserves to be recognized.  Honor the grad in your house with this simple but stunning sampler.


Your grad will feel special when he or she sees his or her photo prominently displayed in a frame or on an easel in your home.  The sampler could also serve as a piece of decoration for a graduation party or the title page of a graduation album.  It should only take you 15-20 minutes to create.

Supplies Needed:

Solid Black 12×12 Cardstock
Solid 12×12 Cardstock in your school colors (I used Royal.)
Cap & Gown Variety Mat Pack
12-Inch Straight Trimmer
Original Border Maker with Party Hats Cartridge
Tape Runner with Repositionable Tape Refill

  1.  Cut two variety mats into two pieces each measuring 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″.  Mat with solid cardstock measuring 3″ x 3″.
  2. Mat a 4″ x 6″ photo and a 6″ x 4″ variety mat with solid cardstock measuring 4-1/4″ x 6-1/4″.
  3. Cut a variety mat to 4″ x 4″ and mat with solid cardstock measuring 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.
  4. Using Original Border Maker with Party Hats Cartridge, punch a border from solid cardstock.

    1. Thanks, Barb! Glad that you like it! You can make similar versions of this page by replacing some of the squares with more photos or use this layout with any of our product collections and Border Maker cartridges.

  2. I really like this layout and I want to use this for pages other then graduation. I’m thinking the pet paper and paw print cateridge, made with love, and birthday theme. Endless possibilities. Thanks!
