Don't be afraid of white space!




Like most scrapbookers, sometimes I complete a page and I just love it. This is one of those pages. When I look over the pages that really appeal to me, they all utilize white space (empty space) effectively and use minimal product, but just the right touch of product. This simple strip of striped paper from the gorgeous Cupcake collection was the perfect addition to this layout - 2 simple circles punched from other papers in this collection, a subtle bit of embossing with one of the great stamps from the Make a Bloom stamp set and voila! The focus is on the photo and I have a layout I love! Do you embrace white space??
