Got Scraps? Make Squares!

Hey, all! Recently I've been on a square kick. I love making layouts with squares. It's super easy and quick to do, and I think it gives layouts a nice, clean look. Plus, it's a great way to use up some of those scraps that I know you have laying around. Here are a few ideas:
For this layout, I made squares out of patterned paper that were the same size as the photos and then randomly placed the photos and patterned paper. (P.S.- Don't you just love those Prima fabric words???)
For this one, I actually used the squares of patterned paper to create a background: For this layout, I once again cut the patterned paper to be the same size as the photos. However, I canted all the photos and patterned paper to give it a more unique look:
For this one, I used the squares to create the background and I used a corner rounder to give the squares a slightly different look:
And finally, for this layout I used the squares to create a background and interspersed some stickers throughout:
So, hopefully I've inspired you to get out there and use some of those scraps. And don't forget about the giveaway that I posted yesterday. You still have one more day to enter!
