Simple Scrapper: January

To say this week has been difficult would be an understatement...today is shaping up to be a day unlike the rest. I'm taking the opportunity to change my thoughts and make this a good ending to a very long week. I have a lot to get accomplished today and I'd like to try and squeeze in some crafty time. One thing I love about my style is that I stay simple in my designs and executions. Don't get me wrong- I love looking at super layered, difficult layouts with tons of embellishments. Love them. But it's just not me. Simple is organic and natural to me.

This is my first project reveal with Simple Scrapper and I'm happy to share a project and two layouts designed with the instructions and template/sketch provided in this month's Simple Pages/Simple Projects package.


Class/Instructions: Simple Scrapper, Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Embellishments: Cosmo Cricket, Mist: Tattered Angels.

Sketch/Template: Simple Scrapper, Cardstock: Recollections, Paper: Pink Paislee, Alpha: Making Memories.

Sketch/Template: Simple Scrapper, Cardstock: Recollections, Paper: My Minds Eye, Alpha: Jillibean Soup, Embellishments: Making Memories, My Minds Eye

What do you do to keep it simple in your life or your craft?

I too like simple layouts, but love the look of the layered ones. I find that I layer more with my cards. Maybe because they're on a smaller scale? I like your outlook for today, just change your thoughts and it will turn your whole day around! :)

great layouts! i have always enjoyed simple layouts and style. I think you can still add a lot but still keep it clean and simple!

Those are beautiful! As for simple, well I guess I don't fit into that style, but I admire it very much and I do often whip up cards that way!

These layouts are great! Ooh! Bolivia! Love the winter LO! I try and keep it simple by not using too many techniques or embellies!
