Hey paper nerds, happy 1st of September!
This month we’ll be creating in one of my favorite styles: Minimalistic.
Being a graphic designer I’m very conscious of the whole less is more approach when putting a design together. That said, I’ve trained myself to play more freely when scrapping and very consciously not stripping my layouts down to the bare minimum. Scrapbooking has become my crazy, messy outlet. So yes, going minimalistic will be a challenge for me. :) But a fun one!
Here’s a video of my process this month, including tips on how I set myself up to keep things minimalistic. Enjoy!
Remember, my lovely YouTube subscribers get an early reveal of every monthly challenge theme. So make sure you subscribe and don’t miss out. :)
Let’s look at the layout!
I loved using one of the Best Thing cards to add a layer and a soft sentiment as well. For a minimalistic layout it’s important that every element adds to the overall message.
And dang, I missed stitching. It’s the perfect finishing touch!
Inspiration from my team
My good friend Katharina offers a fun take on a minimalistic layout on her blog as well. Go check it out!
Magdalena also created a wonderfully simple layout you have to see! She’s the queen of clean, unfuzzy scrapbooking. <3
These are the three art prints you can win in September. Get minimalistic, baby!
And the August winner is…
Karina Beck! Big, huge congrats, Karina. It’s well deserved. I’ll be in touch regarding the prize. :)
Everyone, go see her lovely tags layout on her blog. That mix of patterns is the bomb!
I’m so pleased with all the lovely contributions to the August challenge. Thanks to everyone who participated. I hope you had lots of fun.
