Coming from America – Clean and Simple

There are many crafting differences across the water in America.

Recently I have been contacted by crafters in America talking about the latest trend there – Clean and Simple or CAS for short. This was a very nice surprise for me as this is my main style of papercrafting.

It seems there is a real movement in the US to keep things simple and minimalist. So just adding a simple topper, shape, stamp or even a sentiment to a plain card is very popular. Of course, the occasional bit of bling and sparkle never goes amiss! It’s surprising just how well a little piece of mirri card as a border makes a topper really zing off the card!

Here’s hoping clean and simple is one trend that catches on in the UK too!

Happy crafting x
