In today's post I am going to show you my new scrapbook page.

I've learned a lot in the years I've loved this wonderful hobby: the scrapbooking. A patterned paper is a great way to mirror your photo's story. But in recent times I've started creating backgrounds with geometric shapes, like I did here.

I love the squares! My layout is all squares of the same size, that I cut out from more patterned papers using Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8PK - Squares.

I arranged the squares in a diagonal. The square pieces of my background look like staggered tiles!

Next, I selected my photo based on my vacation. I arranged my elements (photos, title, embellishments) on the background. Before I glue them down, I moved them around to make sure I like the placement.

For the embellishments I used for example the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 18PK - Spring Time.

Tip and tricks: when using the patterned papers as a background to your photos, remember this rule: mat your photo onto a solid paper so the colors and shapes in the photo don't compete with the colors and shapes on the background paper.

I give you a step-by-step tutorial how to put this background together:
