Design A Grid Scrapbook Layout with Flexibility in Mind

Grid designs are one of my favorite arrangements. They have a clean, simple aesthetic and can be assembled quickly. Grid designs are also customizable, which means that you can adjust the size and spacing of the grid to suit your photos. In today’s video, I am going to share some tips for creating a grid scrapbook design.

This design incorporates elements from the {Not} Just for Boys Journey kit which is an amazing collection of outdoor and rustic patterns that are perfect for masculine layouts. Grid designs, like this, are adaptable, but to ensure their visual appeal and avoid appearing too blocky, here are a few things you will want to consider.

Use a consistent color scheme. For this fishing layout, I chose an analogous color combination of blue, yellow, and green. By having a pre-planned color scheme, selecting the elements was a simple process and resulted in a cohesive look throughout the entire page.

A color scheme helps you create a sense of balance and symmetry within the design. As you layer the items along the grid lines, place items of identical color in a visual triangle. On this page, each cluster contains a large green item that leads your eye around the page creating a cohesive design that is pleasing to the eye.

Mix and match different elements. Using a variety of grid sizes and embellishment shapes adds visual interest to your page. Photos, stickers, and cutouts, within each grid can be mixed and matched to tell a story or showcase a particular theme.

Grid designs help you emphasize certain elements within the design. For example, by making the title piece larger item larger and placing it in a prominent position, I was able to draw the viewer’s eye to the focal point on the page.

Add dimension with texture. To add depth and dimension to your grid design, incorporate textures such as stitching, chipboard, or pattern pieces. These layouts can sometimes feel rigid, so try incorporating textured lines or bold pieces like a chipboard title to bring a more organic touch and soften the overall industrial feel.

In today’s video tutorial, I will help you discover some simple ways to incorporate a grid design into your next project.

Grid designs are very versatile and can be adjusted to suit a wide range of styles. Whether you prefer a minimalist, modern look or a more rustic or decorative design, a grid can be adapted to fit your photos. Remember, the key to a successful grid scrapbook design is to have fun and be creative!
