Hey all Rachel here, here is my first layout for October and I have used the gorgeous Travel Grid cut file (yep I love grid layouts!) . This time my theme is photos from a trip to Italy, picking some highlight photos. I have used Pebbles Inc Adventure Awaits collection.
I cut my grid is a bright colour as I wanted it to contrast against my dark blue background. However I did adhere it to a white cardstock so when I embellished they would not not get ‘lost’. My grid is cut at 10×10 inches.
Before adhering my grid down I added die cut flowers to each side, tucking them slightly under before sticking it down on my blue base paper which I did with foam tape to create dimension.
I added my photos first (from a trip to Italy). I cut the word TRAVEL in a floral paper and added with foam tape to create dimension. If you use the release compound function on Silhouette you can drag each letter out of the grid which makes it easier to cut in papers other than the grid cut cut out. (I only have a Silhouette Cameo but I am sure other cutting machines would have a similar function).
I created a sub title by using one of the squares adding the country and date.
Then the fun bit to embellish the squares. Again I used foam tape to add embellishments for height. Some embellishments I layered over each other and some flow into the nexr square.
I added small puffy stickers to each grid keeping the travel theme in mind. You could of course add lots more photos to this grid layout.
Well that’s it from me today, thank you for stopping by and I hope this layout using this gorgeous TRAVEL grid inspires you to get out some holiday snaps and create your own scrapbooking memory!
