Welcome to our October challenges – Grid layout

This month we are all about grids.  The grid foundation is a layout configuration crafters use again and again when creating our pages, it’s a fantastic way to give your pages a foundation to build on.  There are so many ways to use grids on your layout, and here 3 for you!

Donna’s Challenge – Use this Grid sketch

I have created a sketch for this month.

I look forward to seeing everyone’s take on this.

Debra’s Challenge – Grid x 2

Debra’s Challenge-

My Challenge is to use 2 different grids on your layouts, in a minimalist way.

So please use 2 inch squares, and another grid.

I used a hexagon/ honeycomb grid. as my second grid.

I cut 11 x  2 inch squares from Fancy Pants range,  Happy Place, running 2 rows of squares down the left hand side of the page. I used both sides of the double-sided paper. and fussy cut the elements from Bee Arty’s Bee The Sunshine – Sunny Days paper, flowers, branches, bees and Honey Comb.

I cut one of the honeycomb pieces in half. tucking it under my photo, as my second grid. and added some of my fussy cut, flowers and bees.

I added a couple of die-cuts and acetate hearts and chevrons from my stash

Have fun Creating


Louise’s Challenge 3 – Grid x 12

Hi Crafters

Louise here.

Grid layouts are a fun way to get creative without having to think too much.

Today I’m challenging you to include 12 same size shapes on your grid layout.

Here is my inspiration piece:

I decided to keep my photo central and build my grid around it.

I’ve used papers from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Happy Days” collection.

To embellish my page, I’ve used a few little embellishment trinkets and added some doodling with black pen.

Finally I’ve mounted my smaller background piece on a black and white paper to help the grid pop.

Thanks for visiting.

Happy Scrapping.
