On the Grid with American Crafts

Hey there! last week I had 2 layouts on the American Crafts Blog for grid week. When I received the challenge to create 2 layouts based on a grid the first thing that came to mind was a tic-tact-toe grid. I decided to create a tic-tact-toe grid by hand-stitching at 5 inches and 9 inches on my 12x12 piece of paper about an inch or inch and a half from the edge. 

I added embellishments to the bottom right of the grid and to the right of the photo.

 I added my photo to the center of the grid to keep it the focal point of the layout.

For the 2nd layout I created a layout based on Pinterest, not a layout I found on Pinterest on the actual Pinterest feed. I love the offset rectangles the fill the screen when I log into Pinterest. I recreated this grid by using 3x4 cards from the Plus One collection. 

I placed the journaling on the back of the photo. It's easily viewable because it's only attached to the layout with a clothes pin.
And here's the completed layout, inspired by the Pinterest feed grid.
Hop on over to the American Crafts blog and check out the rest of Grid Week. I know the other designers have some amazing projects waiting for you there.
