First Haircuts using a Grid Design and Pink Paislee

Hey everyone,

I am here today sharing a grid design layout I created for Pink Paislee this week.

Here is the layout I created for you today: Grid Design: First Haircuts Layout @raquelLbowman @pinkpaislee #pinkpaislee #ppfancyfree #layout #12x12 #griddesign

I am not one who tends to scrapbook in grid designs. For some reason I actually find them a little tricky. I do not know if it is because I feel confined within the design, or whether I like a more flowing layout design. However, for this layout I tried to add a different spin to it and angle the design and create a lot of squares so I could incorporate multiple photos to tell my story. I absolutely adore the chipboard thickers in the collection. You can pack a whole lotta punch by adding these thickers to your page as each letter is a different colour and really pop off the page. Because my title was larger I was able to incorporate a lot of the thicker designs. I just love the effect!

To add a little detail to the title I machine stitched through the centre of each of the words. It is easy to machine stitch through the thickers however whenever running them through your machine, due to the thickness, stitch them slowly.

I used the multi square patterned paper to create this layout. I loved that I could incorporate multiple patterned paper designs into this one layout from a single sheet of paper. Plus they were the perfect size! I added embellishment clusters to some of the squares, but for one of the spaces where a square could have been I added one of the acetate hearts from the ephemera pack and a puffy sticker 1 to symbolise the 'first' haircut my kiddies had.

 I added a few clusters to this page which comprised of die cut ephemera, buttons and glitter thickers. I love the detail this gave and it also allowed my page to balance with a visual triangle in the layout design.

The photos themselves were printed in wallet size - 2 to a page. I edit all my photos in Pic Tap Go that are taken on my phone and print with my Epson picture mate. Makes it so easy!

 I added detail to each of the squares on the page by machine stitching around the edge of them and folding the edges inwards to add slight dimension.

 I hope you have enjoyed this post today on creating a multi photo grid based layout.
