Those circles are so great, Rebecca! Love the little birdies at the bottom.
Geralyn inspires many of us! Fantastic lift!
Project - it's a wedding party
I got married a bit over 4 years ago! It's hard to believe that I still have not completed a full wedding album. Of course it's on my list of “to-dos” ;)
So of course I jump at the chance of getting to do a Wedding themed layout!!!
For this layout, I totally scraplifted a sweet and super-talented scrapbooker, named Geralyn [inacreativebubble.blogspot.com]. I've had her layout on my Pinterest Scrapbooking board for a few weeks, and could not wait to experiment with her brilliant circle idea! I just love it! I can see lots more circles in the future - all her work is amazing, so check it out for major inspo!
Instead of using a normal rectangular shaped photo, Geralyn inspired me to use small circular photos. So I took my 2X3 photo, and cut circles of the faces out. I used my Martha Stewart circle cutter to cut all the circles out of the maroon cardstock first. The insides of all the circles are 1 inch in diameter. The rest was just placing them on the background, and putting pattern paper behind some of the circles for a little more color.
I made the flower using my circle punch as well (also a “pin” from my pinterest board - a tutorial from October Afternoon! [octoberafternoon.typepad.com]). I punched 6 circles out of double sided pattern paper, and then folded the edges to make a pie shape out of each. once folded, you just place them side by side and they form a cute flower!
I used my Making Memories Slice to cut out the “it's a party” directly from my layout.
First, I thought I would cut it out of pattern paper and then just adhere it on my layout, but instead I used the negative of the cut as a mask to spray with. Then I decided that I would cut out the “it's a party” directly from my layout. I then placed patterned paper behind it, and added a “stitching” effect just using my black pen.
Thanks so much for looking!!!
