A Classic Grid Design Layout

Happy Wednesday friends, it’s Elsie back again with another 12×12 layout to share with you all! A grid design layout is one of those ‘classic’ designs that will never go out of style. It’s a design that I go back to, time and time again.

The die-cut and wooden frames from the Auburn Lane collection make this design super easy to put together, and bring a really cool and rustic vibe to this classic design!

elsie-sep26-gridlayout11A grid design is ideal for multi-photo layouts. I’m honestly not one to use multiple photos on my pages, but I love how easy they are to incorporate with this design, without making my page feel too cluttered. The wooden frames from Auburn Lane are ideal for making a feature of your photos, and they were my starting point for this page.

elsie-sep26-gridlayout4You get four frames in a pack, which wasn’t enough to fill an entire 12×12 layout, so I used one frame from the ephemera pack and created a few cute little shelves from some woodgrain paper to create the look of a gallery wall.

I played around with the spacing of the frames, but they will look great in whatever combination you arrange them in… That’s the beauty of a grid design, I don’t think it can look bad!

elsie-sep26-gridlayout5To help create this gallery wall look, I chose a simple and neutral patterned paper (from Pick-Me-Up) for my background, which I thought could look like wallpaper. I also created a few rips into the edges of the paper, to make it look like the wallpaper was peeling and create that rustic look.

elsie-sep26-gridlayout6Since the colours on the reverse side of the background paper didn’t match the rest of the layout, I adhered some of the gold foil washi from Auburn Lane on to the back, so when I curled the edges over the colours matched and it added some lovely shimmer and shine!


elsie-sep26-gridlayout3There’s lots of lovely rustic-looking embellishments in the Auburn Lane collection. But I’m particularly obsessed with the cute mugs and the chopping board, which I couldn’t resist adding to the shelves!

elsie-sep26-gridlayout2Thanks for popping by today everyone, I hope you’re inspired to create a layout with a classic grid design!
