I haven't made a layout based on a grid in a long time, so I decided on Monday afternoon that this was the perfect time to make one. I used a paper pack from Crate Paper as well as a 6 X 6 Crate Paper pad, but they weren't from the same line. I very rarely mat my photos, but I felt this one needed it because it was smaller, just 4 X 4, and because I wanted to create a more unified amount of space around the photo section as it lined up with the various squares.
Here's a closeup of the title. Look at me using some ancient Making Memories chipboard letters!
And here you can see some of my journaling more closely.
Here's just a bit more journaling. I didn't have tons of stuff to say, but I did want to make sure I told the story of meeting Caroline and how much I enjoyed getting to know her.
And one more look at the finished layout... I had so much fun looking for little embellishments to add to each square. This layout was one of the most enjoyable I've made in a while because it came together so easily. Since I used a paper pad, I felt like the colors and patterns were nicely cohesive. I also enjoyed digging through my embellishment stash and trying out different bits to place on the page.
What are you working on this week? How's it going for you?
