Starting with a blank page can be an intimidating way to begin a project. The following design tips are perfect for pairing with this month's "Holland Park" Kit, or just tuck them into your back pocket for a time when your creative mojo is low. Either way, we hope they’ll help inspire your next project!
Put your title on the edge.
A vertical title is a sure way to make a big impact with your design. On her project, Friends, Kelly stamped her title in two different colors along the edge of her notebook page for some added interest to her spread!
Lisa went with a bold navy color for the vertical title on her spread, Splash. Lining it up along the edge of her page gave her plenty of room for journaling and embellishments, even with the large, blocky letters of the Tucker Alpha!
Create some magic on your page.
"Hang" a banner.
Kelly's pink stamped banner at the top of her spread, Reading List, is the perfect border for her page! This little detail adds interest and ties in the colors from the patterned page on the opposite side of her spread.
Stamp a custom pattern.
Sarah used one of the label shapes from the Holland Park stamp subscription set to create a custom pattern on her notebook spread, Having a Great Time. We love how she filled in two of the labels with a stamped phrase and some journaling!
