After narrowing our Iowa photos down from hundreds to nine, I was left with a grid of pictures but no place for a title or journaling. My solution was to use the sky in the upper left photo for a title. I cut the heart sticker in half, centered it behind the "Discover" sticker, and added letter stickers to spell Iowa. I wrote the journaling on a piece of white cardstock I cut into an arrow shape, then layered it over the right center photo. I put the date below the bottom center to complete the visual triangle. It was missing something; the heart sticker on the upper right photo was the perfect finishing touch for this very simple, photo-heavy page.


  1. Nice! Your grid layouts remind me a lot of Project Life Layouts. Just like w/ Project Life layouts, there is no need to add too many embellishments... though I try to add as much as I can, LOL! But there's also the drawback of space limits. You made it work though! I love when there's enough negative space in a photo to add a title and/or journaling! Great BG color choice!

  2. Nicely done. Love how many photos you used and how you incorporated the journaling too.

  3. Love love love this!!! Great photos you chose!
