I love mosaics and Lea France Templates are the best to use for this effect. They work well for all different types of pictures but I find travel/scenery pictures works best.
I used 2 sold blue papers from my cardstock as background. I used the Lea France Grid Template to cut the pictures.
Each one was cut differently to highlight what was important in the specific picture. They were rearranged several different ways until they complimented each other. Pictures then glued onto Keller’s Creations White cardstock. Outline of pictures was cut and placed on Blue background.
The words were cut out using the Cricut Cartridge Extreme Fonts from green/white cardstock from supply. Glued together and then placed on background.
The center piece and tree was cut using the Cricut Cartridge Camping Critters with Gypsy; cutting the different layers from different paper and glued together. The canoe was cut from Cricut Cartridge Paper Doll Dress Up and placed on the lake. It was lined up in center and then cut to fit on both pages.

I purchased a bunch of chipboard outlines from Keller’s Creation because I like chipboard and it was a good sale but I wasn’t sure what I would use them for at the time of purchase. I owned them for about 15 mins before the design for this page came into my head by looking at my pictures and wanting to use the Boy Scout Paper I purchased in a packet ahead of time. Keller’s suggests painting the chipboard which is a good idea and looks nice but when you forget to bring your paint to an event you need to improvise.
All chipboard but the star stamped with Clear Gloss Ink and coated with White Embossing Powder and heated with heat gun until melted. Repeated this step again and then stamped with Clear Gloss Ink and coated with Chameleon Embossing Powder and heated with heat gun to obtain shimmer. Coated edges with White Galaxy Marker.
Glued Chipboard outline shapes onto photos and then trimmed photos around chipboard. Placed letter stickers on Fancy chipboard banner outlining it with Red Stickle.
Star Chipboard covered in glue and allowed to get sticky. Applied thin layer of blue glitter on chipboard and rubbed in.
All pieces aligned on Boy Scout Paper until found the layout that fit everything. Glued items down and added Gems and Border sticker to add some flare.
