Keep it simple

Funky Town june 2013 June 2013 Challenge Nicole Nowosad

 I'll admit - I like things complicated... so for me, creating a clean and simple page is not an easy thing to do! I like stuff. Lots of stuff. Layers and bits and pieces and all that.    But, I love the look of a clean and simple page too. I just have a hard time pulling it off. I am compelled to always add stuff. lots of stuff :) So, I challenged myself - don't do that. Don't overload the page, and K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simple Stupid. :) Here was the result, using the June kit - Funky...

As you know, Sherri issued a triangle challenge the other day, and I thought I would get straight to work on my first kit layout, and use a ton of triangles to create the background for this page: It was quite easy to create - I cut a triangle template and then used it to cut out a variety of patterned papers in the Funky Town kit. Once I added the triangles, I stitched the centres of them down to my base cardstock. Then, I went...

 I have been having fun playing with pieces of the June Carry On kit and Add on I thought I would share my first two pages with you. You know I think we all borrow ideas so I wanted to show you guys where I found my ideas for these two pages. For my first layout I borrowed an idea from THIS gorgeous layout by Patricia Roebuck. I love the way she divided elements with stitching so I had to try it and I really like the way the layout turned out.    Here is a close up of how...

Thursday Challenge: Scraplift...Yourself!

12x12 Carry On Challenge June june 2013 June 2013 Challenge Madeline Fox

OK, you know you have one...a page that you absolutely love. Maybe it's one where you tried out some new technique...and it worked. Or an inspiring design that really came together. You know, the one that makes you proud! Hey, if it worked once...it should work again, right? Below is one of my favorite pages from just a month or so ago. I enjoy making banners and love how this one came out. The design is easy to duplicate, so why not?  Compare the top and bottom pages and see what you think! I moved the banner and photo down...
