Soccer -- Again

I've always worked on one album at a time. But Nicholas is a Senior this year and I only have one album from his high school years done.  So I'm trying something new.  I am going to try and work on his Senior album as I get pictures -- and focus on one of his other high school albums at the same time.  (The Junior album is done, the Sophomore album is about 60% and I just got pictures for the first half of his Freshman album.)  I am either going to be confused and overwhelmed or amazed at my productivity.  We'll see!

Today I am going to share the first 2 layouts from his Senior album. They are from a summer soccer weekend he participated in with his high school team.  I used a simple grid pattern, varying picture size on both layouts, and using common papers to link the layouts together.  I simply changed the orientation of the grid from the first layout to the second to add visual interest.

The paper was a mix of scraps and a Studio Calico 6x6 pad that was a gift with purchase.  In addition to the thickers used for the titles, there are some other elements linking the layouts together.

Fun banners from the Basic Grey Clippings collection:

Washi tape and washi like stickers:

These soccer themed tabs left on an old sticker sheet:

The grid pattern created nice clean layouts that still have the bright, fun feel of summer.  Its a great technique to try when you want to use up lots of scraps.  I am already thinking of other layouts where I can use the same technique.

I hope you try it and have a great Tuesday!
