Saturday Scraplift: Grids and Angles for Energy

Hi, it’s Linda with some scrapping inspiration for you today. I love a grid, and that sort of page design always tends to capture my attention in the gallery. Beth (bred1269) combined a grid design with angles to create an energetic and striking page celebrating her and her husband. Carolyn and Lynn, two of my fellow Creative Team members, joined me in lifting Beth’s page. Here’s where it took us.

Beth’s page:

Carolyn (Amson) scrapped a photo of her and her husband on a trip to a peninsula in far eastern Russia, Kamchatka. I love how she pulled the colors of her page from the large landscape photo she used as a background. Like Beth, she filled the squares of her grid with word stacks, and the pops of pink form a pleasing visual triangle on her page.

Lynn (grandma lynnie) used this challenge to celebrate the birth of her first great grandchild – congratulations, Lynn! I love how many sweet photos she was able to include and still preserve the order of her page. She carved out a great spot for her title, and the delicate patterned paper is the perfect choice for little Rosie Rae.

My page is all about celebrations, too. On the same day he turned 17, our grandson Sam was baptized during the service at our church. I love these new photo frame envelopes Katie has designed, and now they come in PURPLE – so of course, I had to use them. That choice really gave rise to the rest of the page, and I had a blast indulging my love of the color.
