Third Thursday Scrapbook Stories: January Edition 2013

Katie is here today...it is already time for Third Thursday Scrapbook Stories!  I have to tell you...I am loving everything about this layout.  I adore the grid design that she tried out, and you know me, I don't think that you can ever have too many pictures on a page.  I am wondering if I can follow her directions and get a title to work like that for me....hmmmm.

Hi everyone!

Happy third Thursday of January :)

Today I am sharing a grid layout. I am loving these layouts lately, and have been pinning them like crazy! (Here, here, here and here)

So, in keeping with my 2013 goal of "try new things", I decided to try it out.


I'm happy with my layout. I really love the title. I opened my image in Word, placed a box over the bottom 1/4 of the image, reduced it to 50% transparency, then typed in my words. I love how it came out!

But, I have a confession to make. I made, what I consider, a mistake here. My tiles are a little too far apart. But that is okay, because it is a learning experience! Next time, my tiles will be closer together.

Do you ever see things you'd like to change after you make a layout? Do you go back and change it, or do you accept it as it is and learn for next time?

  1. Awesome! Love the grid design and that title is soooo cool!! I do make mistakes but I usually leave them! It's too much work for me to go back and re do them. Looks great Katie!

  2. This is super cool! I love all the photos AND the title! I make and find mistakes all the time with my stuff but honestly, I'm just too lazy to go back and fix them. Ha!

  5. I always see things I want to change after I make a layout! Sometimes I change it and sometimes I just leave it!
    And so funny that two of the layouts you linked were mine because I was thinking "oh good some grid layout inspiration" You know how I love those grids!
    Thanks for the pins, Katie!
    And what a fun technique on your layout!

    1. I'll only change it if I notice mid-layout and my glue isn't too stuck down yet...

      That is too funny that you were looking for grid inspiration and you were my grid inspiration! I love it!

      You are very welcome for the pins, thank you for making such pin-able layouts!

  6. What a fun layout. Love the title at the bottom. It looks fine with the spacing. I haven't tried anything like this but I have cut up a single picture and than put it all back together just slightly apart. Like a mosaic. Very cool! :-)

    1. That is a really cool idea! I need to try doing something that way. Now I just need a good picture to mosaic...
