Back to Scrapbooking

I have felt to itch to scrapbook for a few weeks now, without a real opportunity to do so. There are a few pages left to finish in Isabelle's baby album so that's where I started. I had a general idea of how I wanted this page to be, which always helps me with the process. I have noticed a change in my scrapbooking style to a more clean, uncluttered and simple to what I had been doing in the past. This is great in so many ways.

  1. I don't need to use as many products, saving me money
  2. I don't need to have as many options, which is good for someone like me who cant make decisions lol
  3. I can complete a page much quicker, enabling me to finish more pages
  4. I don't feel the pressure of having the 'perfect page' every time I sit down to scrap.

This is the page I've just finished. It's Isabelle's tiny little feet at about 3 weeks old with my engagement ring on her big toe.

If you are looking for uncluttered simple scrapbooking styles to inspire you, two scrapbooker that inspire me are Ali Edwards and Becky Higgins. Click on thier names to see their blogs.

Stampin Up patterned paper for the background, Basic Grey Rub Ons, Bella Chipboard with Stampin Up Super Nova Glitter, Cherish definition by My Minds Eye (Wild Asparagus), flowers and ribbon. I have a feeling the 'I' is made by Bazzill?
