W is for White Space

Jennifer Wilson

I’m your guide here at Simple Scrapper. Our community helps people find what fills you up and fits your life in memory keeping.

August 7, 2012

The ABCs of Simple Scrapbooking is a 26 week video series. In each episode, I’ll explore one fundamental idea of stress-free memory keeping.

W is for White Space

White space is an important design element that keeps your pages from looking like a giant mess. What is absent from your page is as important as what is present. The thing is, white space is not just an important visual element for scrapbookers.

To find more joy and ease in our memory keeping, we need two other kinds of white space as well: physical and mental. This episode explores why those matter and shares some ideas for inviting more white space into your life.

Tell Your Story

I would love to hear your voice in this conversation. Where do you need to add more white space? I’m also curious where simple doesn’t necessarily equate to more white space for you.

    excellent video and topic. I love the focus on creating white space in our space and in our minds. love it! I have a cramped little office corner but have seen the benefits of focusing on the stuff I use and streamlining my process.

    Very thought provoking, Jennifer! I like what you said about being involved in the memory MAKING process as well as the memory keeping process. I’ve forgotten my camera a few times lately and only had my iPhone. I’ve taken a couple of pics of the event with that and went about enjoying my time with my family instead of looking for the perfect shot and snapping a hundred pictures. While I love getting the perfect shot, I have to say I’ve been so much more relaxed and have really enjoyed my family times without it. Thanks for the validation!
