Anyone here remember Simple Scrapbooks Magazine? It was CK’s “little sister” mag that focused on a clean, simple approach to scrapbooking. It’s the magazine that got me hooked on scrapbooking, and it’s where I learned to appreciate a graphic style. Sadly, it’s been out of print for a few years, and while I love CK, I still miss it. That’s why I was so excited to learn that Creating Keepsakes was going to release a Simple Scrapbooks Special Issue.

Cool right? Even cooler (for me at least 🙂 was the fact that I got to write an article for this issue. My sister Brittany helped me brainstorm article ideas when I was visiting her last summer, and one of them got accepted: Three Levels of Scrapbooking. The article shows a level one, level two, level three approach to scrapbooking, where level one is the ultimate in ease and speed, and levels two and three get a little more complex while still remaining “simple.” It was a blast to work on. Here’s my layout from the article:

I also had the chance to contribute to another article, this one about scraplifting. Here’s my layout from that article:

Then I was pretty excited when I got two more layouts picked up from the general page calls. You can find those two in the article about scrapbooking using basics + 4-6 supplies.

But enough about me! 🙂 Check out all the online content for the issue here.
