Summer Grid Fun | Jessica Fabiano

What’s up Hip Kit Club friends? You know what I noticed about me? Whenever I truly care about memory keeping, I tend to choose a grid design. That’s because I often take several pictures of a beautiful moment – and I want them all to be on a single page. Mostly. So this is what I created for today’s post:


Oh it was such a lovely day at the lake! The water was beautiful and the air smelled like fresh summer. The sun was shining so bright – and life was easy, for a single day. That’s the message I tried to convey with this layout.


Watercolor accents are always one of my favorites. I didn’t want to go crazy with watercolors, so I just picked a single color: Pink! What else, right? If you’re insecure about new techniques or just feel like something is missing, go for a little bit of color! It’ll most likely give it just that little bit of extra that the layout needs to feel finished.



I used all kinds of things, but in tiny amount. For instance, I wanted to use the Amy Tan “On a Whim” watercolor tags that we got from the beautiful color add on – they are soooo much fun to color in! I think they work best for me in a grid, but really, it was a tough decision to pick from those pretty tags. I added two cute exvlusive puffy stickers, too – they made the tag a bit more interesting.


Details make or break a layout, right? Just a little geotag and this photo cluster was perfect in my eyes. I didn’t want to take away the attention from the pretty picture – but I felt like it needed some pink up there, too.



Did you see the beautiful ice cream banner cut file designed by Kim Watson? They’re to die for! The actual file is longer, but I cut it to the length that would work best for my grid – and then colored in the ice cream with alcohol markers. I love doing that to cut files!


Here’s the full layout again:



Anyway, I hope you’re feeling inspired to try out a grid design, too! Have a great summer time,
