Do you have lots of photos to scrap from a single event?

Today I have a simple idea you can use over & over with great results! The beauty of this kind of page, is that is doesn’t need many supplies either. With my supplies of Joy Parade running really low, I was forced to get creative. Here is my solution.

Multi photo grid idea by Kim Watson

Are you are like me & hate throwing out paper strips trimmed off previous projects? Well today I was able to use a few of them which makes me so happy & it justifies the box of strips I have stashed away haha! Placed in a grid format & stitched, I created the perfect background to start layering all the other bits.

I chose 5 photos and printed them 2,75″ x  2,75″ & 2 others which I printed 1,75″ x 1,75″. Then positioned them around the page leaving a square open for the journal block. Then came the fun part…the embellishing!

Using my leftover Ephemera, Tags, Puffy Stickers & Flair, I just had fun. Being so colourful & well coordinated meant I could place bits just about anywhere & it looked ‘right’. I love how even though the layout & design is simple, the Flair & Puffy Stickers add great dimension.

The colors, happy designs & uplifting sentiments of this collection, make it super easy to use no matter what the page theme! If you haven’t grabbed it for yourself, I urge you to do so.

Thank you for stopping by today! See you soon!
