This week it's all about Clean & Simple at The Kraft Journal. Sometimes Clean & Simple can be harder than it sounds. Normally I would say that is my style, but when I sat down for this one....clean & simple seemed to stump me..LOL
Here is the layout I created while keeping Clean & Simple in mind,
Sometimes I have a hard time leaving blank space on a layout, I feel like I need to add something. I didn't this time, I kept my focus and knew when to stop adding. Nothing could be more simple than dry embossing strips of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock and inking it up with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to create a background for a layout. I used several different embossing folders on different widths of paper to add interest. Just because something is clean and simple doesn't mean it has to be boring!
Vintage Dictionary Pages punched with a scallop circle punch created a cute border for the photo and a Buff Post Card Shipping Tag makes a perfect journaling spot.
Be sure to head on over to The Kraft Journal to join in on the fun this week. Plus, you don't want to miss what the other designers created!!
