Want another fresh design idea that you can use in a whole bunch of new ways?
Well, we do embellishment gatherings all the time, where we cluster embellishments into a spot. Let’s take the idea of gathering items together, but instead, we’ll gather with the purpose of forming lines.
Lines are amazing elements of design because you can use them to anchor your photos and embellishments, and prevent them from appearing like they’re floating. You can also use lines to lead the eye to important spots, such as your main photo.
What kinds of things can you gather into lines? Almost anything…
- embellishments of all kinds
- border strips
I think I’ve gathered all of these at one time or another.
Gathering a whole bunch of a single type of item makes a big statement. It has a lot of impact.
So instead of taking that sheet of labels and using them one by one on various pages, try using all of them in a line gathering on one page in a line that intersects with your focal point photo. It can look really cool, while anchoring your photo at the same time.

I just released a video where I made line gatherings out of the first three items in the list above. In this video you get to see me assemble three different scrapbook layouts, each with its own line gathering.
