We R Memory Keepers Grid Pages *First Birthday*

We R Memory Keepers has created a way to streamline layouts,  include more than one picture on a layout and also provide continuity of layouts.  One idea is to create a 12x12 Layout and then follow-up using the various grid-pages to include the extra photos you'd like to add but not necessarily want to take the time to create more layouts.

The page I chose was a 12x12 with 3 4x6 grids on the left side & 1 6x12 grid on the right side.  I chose pictures from my grandson's, MJ, first birthday.  Supplies:  Bazzil CS, Creative Imaginations PP & buttons from my 'stash'.  I used my Cuttlebug to make the First Birthday letters and my Xyron adhesive. 

The fun thing about the grids is that a person could choose to put a picture on its own with no embellishments, cardstock or patterned paper into the sleeve.  Or, as I did in a couple of pictures, I trimmed the photo, added CS & PP and a couple buttons & journaled.  I didn't want to add too many embellishments as I wanted the focus to be on the simplicity & easy to use aspect of the Memory Keepers Grid pages.  With the We R Memory Keepers Grid Pages, there are a wide variety to choose from. 
I enjoy journaling in my own penmanship, so added a small 'blurb' at the bottom of the page -- using the Patterned Pattern to relay the Happy Birthday theme. 

Pin It!

Great page Suzy! I have some of these sleeves and haven't used them yet. Thanks for the idea. I love how you cropped your photos for the 4x6 spot. What a cute boy you have.

What a sweet boy! I like how you used both patterned paper and solid to matte your photos. Good color combo, too!
