Ise Shima (Design Decisions: Class)

It seems the only time I’m inspired to post anything on this blog is when I’m making pages for Shimelle classes!  As it goes, I’ve been taking Shimelle’s newest class called “Design Decisions”.  The class is 2/3 of the way done, and I’ve finally made my first layout for it!  It’s not that I haven’t been scrapbooking–I’ve just been more on a  divided page protector and mini album kick than 12×12 layouts.   I’m going on maternity leave in a week and a half, and you better bet I’ll be back to scrapbooking on a near daily basis again (yes!).

Well, enough chit chat.  Here’s my simple layout inspired by Shimelle’s sketch.  I kept the basic design elements of the sketch for my page, but I’ve also deterred from the sketch quite a bit (as I’m known to do).


This page has fewer embellishments than my usual amount.  I didn’t want to go overboard since the background paper is quite busy.  I was debating whether or not to add some mist but decided against it in the end.  This will just be one of the rare, super clean pages in my album.
