Template Challenge: I Love a Grid!

One of the most versatile designs for a scrapbook page is a grid. It lends itself to multiple photos, to a combination of papers and photos, or to lots of space to journal. The Creative Team had fun this week using Ali Edwards’ AE Simple Series Layered Template No. 04. Let’s see what they did with it.

LT242559XOne of our new Creative Team members, Nancy (Nancy Beck) filled the spaces of the grid with pictures of her grandson in action on the baseball diamond. Then in the background she included a large blended image of his face that is just striking. I love the layers of paper she used to ground her page.

Janet (JALong) does a beautiful job of documenting her children’s lives, and I know her daughter must love this page about cheering in high school. Janet used just a single photo of her daughter and her friends and filled the remaining spaces with anecdotes and fun facts about this happy time. In my mind, the colors on this page have become indelibly associated with Janet.

I used two of the spaces on the template for pictures of my grandchildren and filled the other two with my title and journaling. I love using patterned paper in small amounts, and the blocks on the grid were perfect for that. I placed a lighter colored mat beneath the grid to make it pop on my page.
