As explained over on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog, the design team is participating in a game of guess that scrapbook crush. Ready to play?
My crop crush is a digital scrapper. She has a clean and simple style. She utilizes subtle layers behind her photos, which are often accented with a thin white border. I admire her use of plain cardstock backgrounds and copious white space. Even more than that, I like the way that she can make just a little color and pattern have big impact. She rarely uses photos larger than 3 x 4 and she employs just enough embellishments to make the page look finished instead of sparse. She sometimes uses grids – and can even make those look more minimal than usual. She has excellent pattern mixing skills, and often you’ll find a small paper strip along one side of her page. If she were a paper scrapper, she would be a "masterful scrapbook designer" using up small scraps with ease.
As you can see, my layout incorporates much of what I like about her style, while staying true to my own style with a medium to large title. It was difficult for me to restraint myself to so little color or pattern. For Pete’s sake, that’s a white cardstock background, and you can fully see half of it!! In order to keep myself from using too much patterned paper, I limited myself to just 3 x 4 Project Life cards from this month’s kit. In fact, 3 cards with their own white space! Overall, the effect is so unlike me, so like her!
Need another hint? I have attempted to copy her style before.
Check back tomorrow here and on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog to see who I am talking about and scrapping like.
Here is the rest of the team that is participating in this challenge:
