Grids and Ledgers

By Melissa Stinson

Have you noticed how many grid papers there are in this month’s kit, Daydreamer? If you take into account all the B-side prints and those two fabulous sheets of Lily Bee Stationery, there are five ledger papers in all, in colors ranging from light gray to cream to bright fuchsia.

Ledger papers are one of my favorite backgrounds for layouts (right next to plain cardstock), and I had to refrain from using them for every single layout that I made with this month’s kit. Instead, I limited myself to just this one that uses the distressed white Stationery sheet from Lily Bee.

I love grid and ledger prints for layout bases because they add a light amount of pattern and interest without making the background too busy, leaving room to play with fun, colorful techniques like this confetti spray (thanks to Davinie Fiero for her awesome tutorial here).
