Challenging Scrapbooking Styles -

Everyone develops a scrapbooking style while moving through the design process.  For some it's a progression that follows trendiness.  For others, it's classic and timeless.  This week the Creative Team shows us how to incorporate the following Styles:
  • Using Whitespace
  • Busy Layouts
  • Mixed Patterns 
Using Whitespace:

Sara says: "When thinking "white space", the space doesn't have to be white - I've used a blue background. I do recommend that you stick with a solid background, as opposed to a pattern, and that you should leave at least half the background open, if not more."

Busy Layouts:

Cassandra shared: "I used to have a lot of trouble filling a layout, but using a grid really makes that so much easier. And it keeps a full layout from looking too cluttered and confusing. Go grids! LOL! TFL!"

Mixed Patterns:

Brittney writes: "This week with the troublesome layouts reveal, I found this one fun. Used all patterns and no solids. By keeping most of them small I've kept it simple."
