Storyline | Working on a Grid

By Midwesterngirl @MidwesternGirl5

Good morning, everyone!
Happy Monday!
Today I'm sharing a fun & easy way to document an event or activity using a grid & Heidi Swapp's Storyline collection!

One of my very favorite scrapbook page designs is the grid. I use this design over and over and I never tire of it.
It's sweet & simple and crisp & clean and perfect. Plus, grid pages come together so quickly!
To create this page, I started with a 12"x12" Storyline background. These pages are available in every Storyline album and they are all ready to go! Just add your photos & embellishments and your WHO, WHAT & WHERE and you're done.
I took a ruler & my trusty pencil and spaced out my design.

The square embellishments in the Storyline Deck of Days packages are roughly 2"x2"...so I laid out my design to accomodate this size.
Then I printed my photos at the same size (2"x2") so everything would be uniform.
I added my Deck of Days embellishments - which are adhesive-backed, so all I had to do was peel off the protective sheet on the back, and stick! - and then I added my photos.
You may be able to see that I didn't bother to erase the grid lines I created on my page. I really like the way they look and how they add a bit of visual interest to my background.

I finished out my page by writing out the details of my story...my WHO, WHAT & WHERE.

This page came together so easily. Plotting out my grid took a few minutes, but once that was done, finishing was just a matter of placing each piece into position!
And I love the way it turned out!
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I hope I've inspired you to try scrapping on a grid for your next layout!
