Zinia's Brick Collage

Hello everyone! It’s Zinia here again and I’m back with a fun scrapbook layout using Amy’s Hustle & Heart collection.

This is a really fun collage layout, inspired by a quilt design I saw on pinterest. It is a little bit time consuming to stick all the little paper strips down but once it’s done you will absolutely love the finished result.


The first step is to cut all the paper strips. I started by trimming half inch strips from 12x12 pattern papers. Then I cut them down to 1.5” width. I prefer using my scissors for that last part so I can cut multiple strips at the same time.


Once all the pieces are cut, it’s time to start building the background. I used a ruler to help me place the first line straight and from there I just eyeballed the placement for the rest of the pieces. It doesn’t have to be perfect and super precise. The finished pattern will look fancy and complicated so it will hide any minor issues.


This pattern will create some empty squares/rectangles where you can put your photos. It’s a really great design especially if you want to scrap multiple photos or stories.

These empty spots are also perfect to add journaling, your title or even embellishments.


For my design, I chose to a vertical photo that expands across two rows of the pattern and embellished a little around it. I added my title next to my photo using some clear stickers. I didn’t want to overpower the design with a big title that’s why I decided to go small.


I really hope you enjoyed this page and you got inspired to create some fun collage with your scrappy supplies. Until next time, happy crafting!
