I am searching for inspiration (layouts) in this particular style.

If anyone have a link to a blog or web site, I would be really glad if you would like to share that with me. Thanks!

That's my favorite style too! Here are my favorite bloggers who do that style. I don't know if you'd consider all of them "simple" but they have a clean, graphic, linear, bright style I love. All of these people might throw in something more artsy from time to time but if you'll search their blogs/work, you'll find mostly clean and simple.

Is this an instrument of torture or communication?

Great suggestions, love your list Tracie! I was going to add another, Jodie Wenke, but when I went for a link she's made her blog private.

I didn't do the link correctly apparently, sorry! But Cathy's work is very clean & simple. I love her style! She had a book out years ago called Clean & Simple that I used for a long time.

I would consider my pages more along the lines of clean and simple.

Oh bummer about Jody Wenke going private on her blog.
I always found her so inspirational!

One of my all time favorite simple scrappers is Melanie Louette
She does it so well and so beautifully.

Great list Tracie. I enjoy all of their work and the simplicity.

Unfortunately it seems Lynn Ghahary is no longer Scrapbooking. I hope that's not he case because her style is great. She's sold off all of her stuff. I have missed her here as a GG and her YouTube videos. Glad I can still refer to her style here.

I have a Clean and Simple, Graphic and Linear Pinterest board here. I bookmark CAS layouts from the blogs I read each week, and pin them in bunches.

You also might find this thread helpful - I listed a bunch of my favorite CAS scrappy blogs. There are also a lot of Peas that scrap that way and are very inspiring. You can filter the gallery to only show CAS projects. HTH!

ETA: I'm also bummed about Jody Wenke going private with her blog. I always looked forward to seeing new pages from her. Hope she and her loved ones are doing ok.

Here's my pinterest page

I have various boards sorted into sub categories with scrapbooking as the beginning name of each one. I'm a simple scrapper, so that's the type I usually pin. If one looks more elaborate I usually make a note of why I pinned the image. It's usually a reminder to copy a certain embellishment or page title.

ETA: For some reason I'm having issues posting a direct link Just copy and paste my page into another browser.

Thanks for the inspiration, I find it difficult to find blogs in a more simple style these days.
