Why I love simplistic layouts

Hey there! 

Do you ever look at a page and think OMG I love it. There so much detail and craftsmanship that goes into the page, you fall in love with the layering and texture. Then the photo balances it all out! Yeah, me too! 
Then I sit down and gather my supplies and get to work!

I find that as I am working all of those details that made that page perfect are things I don't have.  Or perhaps I have something close to it, but not exactly and before I know it, I pushing my project off the table because it just doesn't measure up. So, guess what I stopped doing, I stopped trying to make those elaborate pages ALL. OF. THE. TIME. 
I have this collection on my desk.... SO. MANY. AMAZING. IDEAS. come to mind....

Back to basics, simplicity helps me knock out my pages, helps capture the memories and build my books. Does that mean I scrapped my pinterest boards, No! Does that mean I have pushed the idea of elaborate pages aside, NO! It just means I cut myself some slack! 

So here is today's layout:

I love simplicity layouts, they leave so much room for adding stickers, die cuts, cricut cuts and even changing the layout or orientation of the page. :) 

My favorite part is the tone on tone background stamping on this page, to create my own custom pattern paper. 😍
