Elena said...

I like plain and simple and sometimes I might add a little bit of flair! I want the pictures and the journaling to take center stage! that is stepping out of my confort zone! the journaling that is! and even after so many years of scrapbooking I still hate to tear paper!

marilyn said...

I try for shabby chic, but do a lot of clean and simple with a little shabby chic thrown in .

Sammie said...

My style is mostly clean and simple, but I wish I could do shabby chic!

I'm relatively new scrapper and I'm trying to find if I have any style at all. Something between Clean and Simple and American style, I think.

cvanholstein said...

This minimalistic-style suits you very well Stacy, and is still very much your style.
Love the layout, and your girl is getting to be a very pretty lady!
I often use your work to inspire scrappers here in the Netherlands, so you're getting more and more popular over here :)
Time to come and do some workshops??
xxx, C

Jennifer said...

I try and keep things fairly simple, but sometimes I throw in some extra fun. Love this layout.

Lisa P said...

Looks like too much fun. I love a simple but incredibly fun look.

Melinda said...

LOL, I think my style falls into the "something else" not sure what to call it, its more on the plain, looks like something's missing!

Barb said...

I love your layout. My scrapbooking style tends to be simple, clean and symmetrical. I need inspiration to try something new.

Hi Stacy, I love your clean and simple lines! and your posts on Club CK! very inspiring. I would have to say my style is definately Eclectic! depends on my mood, see I scrap traditionally, Digital and Hybrid, so usually it depends on the challenge at club CK to what style I use. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a fab MUST Have mag!
