If you’re looking for a fun way to incorporate several photos or a lot of embellishments onto your page, then why not try a grid design! I wanted to use the awesome cards in the American Crafts Haunted Hollow Bits pack, and thought a grid design, would be the perfect way to add them to my layout. I also wanted to use several of the patterned papers, so I cut 4.5×4.5 inch squares, to use as my grid. I wanted the background to be simple, so I used the dark Gray cardstock from the Cardstock Add-On Kit. Once I had each of the squares in place, I stitched around each one with my sewing machine. And then I had plenty of room for adding my title, using the Journal Thickers and embellishing each of the patterned paper squares.
Scrap papers to the rescue! I just can’t resist using my scraps, to create cards…especially since I can’t bring myself to throw away any of the left over pieces in my Hip Kits each month! I used several left over strips from my Frightfully Fun layout on this card. I wanted a somewhat messy look, so once the strips of paper were in place, I added some Washi Tape over them and then added some zig zag stitching. The Journal Thickers worked perfectly for adding my sentiment, and I used the Jack-O-Lantern from the American Crafts Haunted Hollow Bits pack to add the finishing look to my card.
