I'm a big fan of "white space" (aka space with nothing on it- doesn't necessarily have to be "white") on layouts, although most of the time I tend to forget that I'm a fan of white space when I'm creating and I end up putting stuff everywhere on a layout and before I know it- no white space!

I went in with purpose on this layout to show restraint in my design and to leave some empty space, and I really love the results. It helps keep the focus purely on these pics of my two oldest kiddos.

To make this tree below, I punched a large scalloped circle and matted it behind a tree cut from one of the papers. An overlay, a chipboard sticker, and a button help add more dimension.
I've seen this a few times and I think it looks cool- just punchng one section on a layout. I backed it with a little scrap of patterned paper to make it pop.
To make the title really stand out, I first inked a piece of the Maya Road chipboard, then went over it with the distress stickles in the kit. The look ends up seeming like you could just eat it!
(all made with the Noel Mignon Object of My Affection kit!)
