Clean and Simple Layout Inspiration | Kathleen Graumüller

Hey friends, it’s Kathleen here again, unfortunately with my last post as part of the Citrus Twist Kits creative team. I absolutely loved being on the CTK design team, but since things have gotten a bit hectic around here (at home, not at the CTK blog ;) ), unfortunately, I had to step down from this design team.

But let’s focus on my project for today! I thought I would share some inspiration for a clean and simple layout that I made with the beautiful May "Malibu“ scrapbooking kit. I used one of the iNSD sketches as inspiration for this one.

 When making a clean and simple layout, what always helps to add some interest to the page, is to use different textures. On my layout I not only used the patterned papers, but also part of the pink tulle that was included in the kit (as part of the border on the left, it’s a bit hard to see in the photos), different embellishments (like the gold puffy stickers, the cardstock stickers), some machine stitching and the white modeling paste.

For that last one I used a stencil from my stash that kind of reminded me of the blanket’s structure (which you can see in the photo). I love the look of white on white because it adds some interest to your layout without adding more colour or patterns, so it doesn’t get too busy.

I hope this layout inspires you to try the clean and simple style yourself :)

And since this will be my last blog post, I thought I would also share some of my favourite layouts that I made with the Citrus Twist Kits over the past eight months (and it was really hard to choose - the CTK kits really pushed me to try new things):
