Too much is a good thing?

Some scrapbook artists will tell you there's no such thing as too much frill. They'll keep on embellishing and glittering until the page fills up. Some will say you need to focus on the photo and create a stage for it by cleaning the background as much as possible while focusing on the photo and doing everything you can to make the eye return to the photo. I find that both ways work - there's a time and a place for everything.

Working as a scrapbook artist for hire for the past 4 years (wow, time flies when you're having fun), I found different people like different things, you need to spend time understanding your customer, applying your talents and skills to fit his or her need/dream.

In the following mini bridal scrapbook album I created a clean, simple look for a couple whose love shines through. The album measures 6.5 x 8.75" and each page is textured with an embossed pattern. In this couple's case, their happy faces will be the best embellishment for this album.

What do you think? Is too much frill too much?
