Personally, I don’t have a single set-in-stone scrapbooking style. To keep things interesting for myself, I like to play around with different styles. Some of my pages are very simple with minimal embellishments, and others are filled with techniques and lots of products. For my post on the Prima blog, I created one-page variations of the two-page layout I did for my class a couple months ago.
Here is the first version.
Pretty simple, huh? I created a quick and easy base for the photo by punching squares from the Songbird Collection papers. I kept the rest of the page pretty simple by using a minimal amount of flowers (just enough to “pretty up” the page a bit). Then I added my title and handwrote my journaling on a doily. This is a page that could easily be completed in half an hour and with minimal supplies.
Here is the second version.
As you can see, I added more embellishments and details. For example, I beefed up my cluster of flowers and embellishments. I added some details, like machine stitching around the page and I added tiny drops of Liquid Pearls around the center section.
Instead of a simple punched square design, I added a more eye-catching patchwork design adorned with pearls.
To add a bit of sparkle and pizzazz to my embellishment clusters, I coated some of the flowers and the butterfly with translucent white glitter.
In case you missed it, here's my 2-page version.
