The case for flatter and fewer layouts....


Fun-with-cousin-Joshua

Not sure if you've noticed, but I've been cutting down on my layouts of late. And making them really flat. Apparently switching to only multi-photo layouts 2 years ago isn't enough. My album collection is growing at an alarming rate....*LOL*


And to think I started as a digital scrapbooker! But I so want to document fun things that might be awesome to reminisce about years from now. And I LOVE the tactile feel of actual layouts instead of flipping through a digital album. What about you? Are you drowning in albums like I am? *winks*

I love the movement and colors on this layout. If you are running out of album pages to make you can come and do mine...I am about 25 years behind! You make layouts so inviting and for you they seem effortless. Green with ENVY!

Its Lovely Lo ! My favorite misted bg and cheerful colors..

P.S. I am drowning in cards ;) !

Lizzy Hill said...

OK, firstly LOOOOVE that bg & the way you've got lots of colour going on & the buttons.....& I'm drowning. I need saving!! I don't know what to do. I won't have room for scrappy product 'cos it will all be taken up with albums. What IS the answer??!!!!

Audrey Pettit said...

I can relate, my friend! I felt overwhelmed by the amount of albums I was accruing.... got to the point where I didn't know what to do with them anymore.... so I pretty much stopped scrapbooking. Now I've got cards spilling out of every nook and cranny. But at least I can give those away, or even throw them away, without guilt. :)
LOVE this page! The misted background is fabulous and I adore the subtle tone-on-tone stitched circle behind the photos. The scalloped circles really pull your eye all around the layout. Love the scattered buttons and string nests, too!

Hummmm.... I started out with totally flat layouts. You would never know that to see mine now. You seem to have succeeded with this one and so cute with a lot of embellishments!!! Great job!!!

Laura said...

Wow what gorgeous techniques! Thanks for playing along at Stuck?!

Cindy deRosier said...

Yes, I am absolutely drowning in albums, despite the fact that I have always made completely flat layouts AND only make one page per trip or event, no matter how many photos I took. I've been scrapping for so long that it's overwhelming how many albums there are.
