PDCC 74

After a chat with Sarah C at Paddy's last week I thought I'd give 'clean and simple' or 'less is more' journalling a go ...


... although I am beginning to wonder if that's a contradiction in terms!


This week's wonderful colour combo was chosen by Ruby (aren't those pots fabulous on that wall!), and we're sponsored this week by Lizzie Ann designs who sent the DT some gorgeous rubberstamps each:



I decided to start with a textured white page in my journal - a successful 'less is more' start - to which I then added flowers stamped in blue and lilac/purple - at which point I got carried away lol


Ah well, I'll persevere!  These are gorgeous stamps to use, and come brilliantly packaged in a cd case.  Lizzie Ann designs have supplied an equally brilliant prize this week valued at approx £25


So why not check out this week's DT members pieces for inspiration, then get crafting (and remember, anything goes as long as it's created in blue, purple and white) and enter your piece over at The Play Date Cafe ~ have fun!

Great page Sarah - funny about the less is more approach though - I love the background texture, and your subtle journalling :)

Super journal page, Sarah...I think when we get wrapped up in a project and are really diggin' it, it's hard to let it alone!

Oooh, you got some fun (and different from my) stamps to play with, Sarah! I love how you used them very softly. Belated Happy Birthday, dear girl!

OHHHH! Another fabulous page! LOVE the "less is more" approach--however, I tend to find I say..." Just one more thing....one more embellie....more color" so less ends up being MORE!

Happy happy birthday to you!! Hope you had a fabulous day! Wish we were there to celebrate with you!!
