Saturday Scrapbook Challenge: Stunning Simplicity

Good morning all! I hope you had the most wonderful day yesterday celebrating with friends and family. Are you feeling ready for a little quiet me time after all the excitement? Maybe a little scrapping indulgence? For our Saturday Scraplift this week, I have chosen a page by Geraldine (Dady).


I thought it was a stunningly simple design that would be perfect for showcasing a favourite photo from this special time of the year. I love the brushwork that grounds the photo and the ink splatters that create movement across the page. The simple ribbon element is the perfect finish to this lovely layout.

I think this design really suited Debi’s (beehive50) style! She says that she was inspired by all the white space and subtle brushwork. Instead of the splattered brush, she scattered snowflake brads across the page. She used a bow, as well, but anchored it to an acrylic snowflake. She moved the strip of paper to the left sign and added a tab, the date and a little brushwork to the bottom right. I’m inspired by Debi’s use, not of a photo, but of a screenshot to tell a story that needed to be told!


Debi has used Katie’s Abisko Scrapbooking Collection, Doodledo Frames No.14 Brushes and Stamps and Pencil Line Twists Brushes and Stamps No.02.

I wanted to use a little photo that my daughter had posted of my granddaughter. She had applied a filter that gave the photo a golden glow – the perfect opportunity to use Katie’s recently released Season’s Finest Scrapbooking Collection which is full of golden goodness! I clipped one of the photo mats from this collection to a new Holly Brush from Katie that should be arriving in the store today (ARTpack Holly Brushes and Stamps No.1). It gave it the lovely golden look I was hoping for. I extended it with a ‘splash’ and finished it off with a few small elements from the same collection. Of course I can seldom do a page without my favourite Thin Classic Photo Frames!

I hope you can can join us this week in scrapping this beautifully simple design. I am keen to see how Geraldine’s lovely page inspires you too. Don’t forget to post your page in the Saturday Scraplift Challenge Gallery and in the December Challenge Participaton Sign-in Thread.

Happy Scrapping everyone and thank you for the inspiration, Geraldine!
