When you have a photo but you don’t have many papers or embellishment that work with it, you can still create an amazing layout. I used Reflection Scrapbook Kit and Super Script Stamp Set, to create a super cool minimalist layout without the bulk of many layers or embellishments.

I started with my photo, as this was one thing I wanted to use on my layout. Then I went through the papers in the kit and picked out this cool black and white stripe on that would work perfectly with my photo. I didn’t want to use the whole piece so I cut it into some squares and rectangles and added these around the page.

To make the layout look fuller, you can use black alphas to create words which add a lot of interest. When you add the words in, add them a little wonky as this will give you some movement and flow to your layout.

Last but not least is to choose a perfect chipboard embellishment to add to the corner of your photo. So so easy right? As you can see sometimes, less is more. So have fun with what you have and just make memories.
