Geek Lab || Working in a Grid

Good morning, everyone!  Kat here today to show you how I used the AWESOME calendar cut file that was included with this month’s kit.  I absolutely LOVE this calendar cut file (I’m SURE you’ll see it on at least one more of my projects this month!) and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to create a grid layout.  I love grid layouts because they are so clean and organized looking.  Sometimes I have a hard time deciding where to place my embellishments, but when I work in a grid, it becomes obvious to me where I should place certain items.

To begin my layout, I opened the calendar cut file in my Silhouette software and re-sized so that the squares were roughly 2×2.  Then I cut it out and began filling in all my squares:

I placed my grid at an angle to add a bit more interest to my page.  I loved being able to add my embellishments in an “organized” manner – ha!  I’m definitely a simple scrapper at heart!

Thanks for stopping in!  How are YOU going to use the calendar cut file??
