As part of our Simple Tip Saturday series, we’re inviting fresh voices into the mix. Today we’re hearing from Monika Glod with her simple tip.
What is one way you simplify scrapbooking?
One of my favorite ways to simplify is to scrapbook with a grid. It is easy because you can find grids everywhere. A grid can be any shape – not only squares. Triangles or circles could easily be used as a grid. The great thing is that every project made with a grid has the potential to be different depending on the papers and embellishments to use.
What problem does it solve for you?
This way of scrapping is great for when you just don’t have enough time for scrapbooking but you feel like you want to make something. Or even if you can’t seem to find the inspiration you need to design a scrapbook page. A grid is a nice way to solve those problems since the design is so quick and easy. Grids are also great for situations where you have more than one photo and don’t know which choose since you can use numerous photos when creating within a grid.
Why do you think it works so well?
It works well because it’s a very simple method! Grids are really fast to make – just put your photos in a grid design and add strips of paper and embellishments. The great thing is that anything and everything will work with a grid design- bold or simple embellishments as well as patterned and solid papers.
