Two-Page Tuesday: Clean and Simple

I should call this Two-Page Tuesday post the "minimalist edition", because I used a sketch, but only for the photo placement! There is enough color in the photos for my taste, so all I added were slim patterned paper strips, wavy border stickers, the title, journaling strips, three stars, a few buttons and a banner. The color palette is limited to a few blues and a pop of red.


Design Inspiration: Sketches for Scrapbooking, Volume 6

This might be the least amount of product I've ever used on a page! Yet I'm pleased with the results. How minimalist have you ever gone? Were you comfortable with it?

  3. You can certainly make a simple look shine.

    I absolutely love simple pages, but I find them so difficult to do personally. I think I just like playing with glue too much

  5. I like how the top and bottom borders frame the page. The photos really take center stage. It is a very striking layout. I can't seem to do minimalist unless it is a companion page that is filled with photos and there isn't any room for embellishment.

  9. Great 2 pager! I couldn't agree more - there is plenty of color in the photos and you struck a great balance. I love the pops of red and the borders of pattern paper across the top and bottom. Love this! :)

  13. It looks awesome Sue!! I think there is just enough to go along with the photos and I love the sketch arrangement you used. I have "tried" to go minimalist before, but then I just keep adding stuff to it, once I'm done with it!! :)
