Grid Graduation - Scrapbooking Global blog hop this month.

Hello and Welcome to our monthly Scrapbooking blog hop featuring gorgeous Stampin' Up! supplies

This is an amazing international group who want to inspire your scrapbooking using fun challenges.  

This month, the theme is to use a Grid Pattern for the layout - and I'm the designer!!

I love this type of layout because it's easy and straightforward!  For my page this time, I scored it into 4 inch squares and cut my papers and photos to 3 3/4 inch squares - easy peasy. 

Once I arranged all the squares into the grid pattern, then all I had to do was embellish!!  

I've use the lovely Petal Park stamp set and the coordinating Petal Park punch for some sweet Tahitian Tide and Misty Moonlight flowers.  I've also punched greenery from vellum and the Night of Navy Soft Shimmer paper using the Bough Punch.

All of the greetings came from the Charming Sentiments stamp set and die cut using the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes dies.  The journaling tag comes from the Designer Tags dies.

There's also a sneak peek of the Translucent Florals stamp set and coordinating dies on my page.  I've stamped using Blueberry Bushel onto vellum for a soft flower.  

As a finishing touch, I doodled along the 4" score lines using a Blueberry Bushel marker to accentuate the grid pattern of my page.  

My page title comes from the Wanted to Say dies adhered using Adhesive Sheets - I love how easy it is to use these!!  My final touch is some Pastel Sequins scattered around and on the flowers.  

Here's the list of everybody in the hop - make sure you check out ALL the amazing inspiration.
