Hey, friends! It’s Brianna Lepper here again with my last layout as the April guest designer. I have LOVED working with the April 2022 kit and add-ons. It’s been an absolute treat to be here and I want to thank both Elle and Meghann for having me! Let’s get to my layout, and don’t forget to check out my process video that’s linked at the end of this post:

I love all of the patterned paper in The Best Paper Stack and wanted to showcase all of the lovely patterns. My way of doing this was by creating a grid. I love grid designs because it’s so fun to treat each shape like its own little layout. I cut 3 x 3 inch squares using some of the patterned paper, distressed the edges, popped them up on foam tape, and adhered them down to a piece of white cardstock. I even added a doodled border around each one using a black gel pen. Here’s one of the squares. I layered up a few of the Flower Die Cuts along with both the Flower Puffy Stickers and Warm Puffy Heart and Star Stickers.
Here’s another square. I fussy cut a few of the circular elements from one of the The Best Paper Stack patterned papers to use as additional embellishments.
For my title, I pulled out the Big Hugs Stamp and Metal Die and chose the “Keep Smiling” phrase. I stamped it out using black ink to pull more of the black from when I outlined each square. I matted my photo with scrap paper from the paper stack and adhered my title right on top of my photo. I put it in the center of my page and love how that stamped phrase just really pops off of the page.
Next, I added my journaling directly onto one of the 3 x 3 inch squares, and using the Fuchsia Puffy Alphabet Stickers, I added the year on one of the fussy seal circles.
I love labels and label-shaped die cuts and Elle’s Studio really comes through on both! They carry so many great layering bits and it makes me so happy. Tucking and layering are one of my favorite parts of putting together a page.
Here’s one last shot of this super-fun grid design:
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope that I’ve inspired you in some way! Do you like to add a lot of patterns to your layouts and do you enjoy working with grid designs? It’s a lot of fun seeing them come together, and I really enjoy embellishing all of the grid squares. Watch me create this layout here to get inspired to try out this layout using your own April products:
Thank you again for being here and I hope you have a great day!
Hey friends! My name is Brianna Lepper and I’ve been scrapbooking for over 15 years now. I started sharing my love for it over on YouTube and then ventured over to Instagram. I love the paper crafting community! We are a military family stationed in Northwest Louisiana and we have two boys, Noah and Elijah. We also have three dogs, Pippa, Luna and Cubby and you’ll always see them on my layouts. When I’m not scrapbooking or teaching about scrapbooking, I enjoy reading and spending time with my family.
