Last week, this layout was shared over on the MME blog. Stephanie challenged the DT to create layouts using paper from the 6x6 pads. Typically, 6x6 pads are used by card makers, but these mini versions of the 12x12 paper are perfect for layouts too.
I created a 8.5 x 11 using the 6x6 pad from the Indie Chic Ginger collection.
The many reasons I love using 6x6 pads include: 1) the smaller overall pattern on the paper, 2) you don't feel guilty for cutting a small piece of paper from a 12x12 page when using a 6x6 piece, 3) you can keep the entire 12x12 paper for the background of your layout.
For my layout, I wanted to create a quilt like pattern for my background. I cut random sized squares and adhered them to my background sheet. I added some decorative tape framing each square and stitched the entire background, resembling a quilt.
I then used each square as a mini canvas, adding embellishments, layered stickers, banners, and my title.
This grid design is a design I go back to frequently, as it is so versatile to your photo and product choice, and it just looks great!
Thank you for taking the time to stop by! It is always appreciated! Have a fantastic Tuesday!
