by Lain Ehmann on May 16, 2012


It’s another fantastic episode of Layout a Day: The Simple Scrapbooking Podcast! Today, we’re discussing minimalist scrapbooking. Never heard of it? Well, it’s time you did! We’ll be discussing:

  • What Mondrian and Raymond Carver have in common
  • Who said, “Less is more”
  • Why so many scrapbook layouts I see are hot messes,
  • and much, much more!

    Ok, Lain, you have made me so very happy today! I am a minimalist scrapbooker, and I was jumping up and down with joy with each an every word on you podcast today. I really feel minimalist scrapbooking is lost in the world of color and techniques, but it exists nonetheless.

    I recently guest blogged about it (in Spanish, of course) on the “Scrapándome Con Los Recuerdos” blog http://scrapandomeconlosrecuerdo.blogspot.com/2012/04/25-dias-de-mi-historia-2012-pagina-4.html and I really hope more people embrace this style of memory keeping as a real alternative.

    I just wanted to let you know about Margote, another minimalist scrapbooker that I really like:


  • Bridget Greenwood

    As a photographer I have always done minimalist scrapbooking, my pages have been mostly just images on white pages with a little journaling and maybe a sticker or 2, fast cheap and easy.  Doing LOAD is the only time I have ever experimented with my pages and created more decorated pages.

    It’s fun to try a mix. I think if I were a better photographer, I’d add less to my pages. But maybe not? Hmmm….
