Way to Go Grad — By: Paris Dukes


Designer Tip: Paris' versatile graduation layout makes a great addition to any album, or frame it and give it to the lucky grad as a gift!


  1. Use the blue/brown dotted paper as the background. Mat a vertical and a horizontal photo on blue glimmer paper, trimming the mats to 1/8". Glue the vertical photo in the top left corner of the page and add the horizontal photo to the lower right of it.
  2. Computer journal “way to go” onto blue dotted paper and crop to a strip with 2 1/2" of blank space on the right end. Add a “Grad” Brad Buddy™ to the blank space, then mat on blue glimmer leaving the mat at 3/4" on the left end and trimming all the other edges to 1/8". Fold the left end over so it overlaps the left end of the journaling, then secure the folded end with a mini brad. Glue the journaling above the horizontal photo.
  3. Computer journal onto blue dotted paper and crop to a 7"-long strip. Mat on blue glimmer paper, leaving the left end at 1" and trimming the other edges to 1/8". Fold over the left end of the mat and secure it in place with 3 mini brads, then glue the journaling across the bottom of the page, toward the left side.
  4. Fold over the bottom right corner of the background paper so it overlaps the right end of the journaling and glue in place. Glue a square of blue circles paper behind the folded area to complete the corner, then add the diploma and graduation hat Brad Buddies™ to the corner.
