Let's Roll

It happens every December. While I am preparing the house for the holidays, shopping for presents, and celebrating with family, my photos are piling up! Then when the seasonal madness subsides, I find myself a bit overwhelmed. Returning to my scrap desk, I need a way to roll through some pages. That's when I return to some favorite all-purpose designs, such as the one used below. Scraptastic's Baby It's Cold Outside kit and add-on make it a breeze. 


A simple grid is defined by stitched lines surrounding punched squares of patterned paper. A title, a banner, and a bit of ephemera (ticket stubs) finish off this simple page. Done. Not every page needs to be complicated! Now back to that pile of pictures...

Do you have a favorite go-to design?

This is an awesome grid design, Madeline! I can see why it would be a go to design. Love how you tucked the movie tix in there too. Great touch!

Love the grid design, very cool. I don't have a favorite go to design, maybe I should would certainly make getting pages done a lot easier.

Love this simple design. My photos are already piled up. I really don't think there's any helping it. :) My go-to is mini albums, because you can make minis about anything really and stick a ton of photos in there!

I love this! I often do grids, but the stitching between is just wonderful! :) Love the colors and that Carta Bella collection, I've been using it for so many things! :) I am also VERY glad I'm not the only one who takes pics at the theater! :) :) Love it!
