From the Inside Flap
'Scrapbooking' and 'cool' belong in the same sentence," proclaims Cathy Zielske, author of Clean & Simple Scrapbooking. Known for her signature style, captivating photography and candid approach to journaling, Cathy has inspired a new breed of scrapbookers who want to preserve their memories simply, and with a classic, hip style.A graphic designer by trade, Cathy began scrapbooking as a way to give more context and meaning to the photographs she cherished. What she didn't realize initially was the powerful way in which scrapbooking allows us to examine and celebrate the very essence of what our lives are truly about. "This hobby is all about honoring who we are, how we fit into the grand scheme of life, and everything in between. In short--the good stuff," she says.
About the Author
A 2002 inductee into the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Hall of Fame, Cathy now works as a contributing editor at Simple Scrapbooks magazine. She writes articles on layout design as well as contributing a regular colum on typography. She also travels to trade shows and conventions that teach graphic design theory to scrapbookers. She loves the fact that "they totally get it, because scrapbookers are graphic designers!" Born and raised in Everett, Wash., Cathy now resides in St. Paul, Minn., with her husband, Daniel, her two children, Aiden and Coleman, some sea monkeys, and lots of camera and computer equipment.

I loved this book for many reasons. One, it showed designs that were graphically clean, and put the emphasis on your photographs. Two, the journaling tips are great. Just reading the author's journaling blocks gave me great ideas for my own, and I have done so much more journaling since reading this book. Three, the book lets you into secrets for doing great color combos. Four, I got my start in digital scrapping from this book. Now instead of buying stickers, I print my titles and journaling directly on the page. Five, Not only does the book show you great layouts, it gives you the mental tools to create your OWN great layouts. Which, to me, is key. Who wants to copy all the time? Who wants to shop for this or that "perfect" element all the time? Not me! I'd rather know how to use my computer, my paper and my photos to create great looking pages. I have done many terrific pages with basically solid colored cardstock, my photos, and some thought about the design and type font. For the beginner or intermediate scrapper who likes a clean, simple look, this book is indispensable.
Two years later, desperate for basic design principles that you can't learn on YouTube, I finally READ the books and I'm so glad I didn't give these gems away.
She shares timeless design principles, and her stories are raw and totally relatable. I really like her down-to-earth style. Clean & simple may not be my scrapbooking style, but I can utilize some of the concepts to make better layouts that stand the test of time.
Through this book Cathy shows us the tried and true methods of creating clean and simple magazine style layouts. By magazine style I mean they are clear and striking, graphic looking but so fresh.
Loved this book, and look at it time and time again for inspiration!
