Sue Althouse chose a pin of this layout by Doris Sander with an inspiring grid-on-grid design to aid her in making the page you see below.

Sue says, “The Get It Scrapped Layout: Grids Pinboard provides me with endless ideas for layout foundations and an effective means of organizing page elements. You just can’t go wrong with a grid!”

“For my layout about the historical costumes at Greenfield Village, I stuck with the same 4-square patterned paper grid as the foundation, but then layered more photos in a different configuration over top.”
