Just wanted to share a couple more 'circle inspiration' layouts with you! The first three layouts were featured on the BASIC GREY BLOG and you can click on their titles to go to those posts.
I love how you can use so many patterns on one page by using simple circles. Have you ever bought a 'collection' of patterned papers because they all coordinated so well, but then had trouble trying to put all the different patterns to work on your pages? I have... I'm a pattern paper hoarder and let me tell you, if there is a "collection"... you can bet that I will have to buy, not just one of each, but TWO of each! LOL! My favorite paper companies are BASIC GREY (of course), BO BUNNY and MY MIND'S EYE. They are so good at putting together collections that coordinate and tell a story.
This next layout was the inspiration for my own scrapbook layout today... I just love the design of it and how so many different patterns can be used all together. Lady Grace Belarmino from the BASIC GREY DT designed this page. She used all 1" circles and that she punched out by hand, but if you have a cricut... save your hands! There are dozens of cartridges that offer simple circles.
Of course, my page turned out a little different... my circles are 2" because I really wanted to show off the patterns and colors. I also did not use one collection for this layout, my papers are from a variety of companies, but all in the same color scheme.
The 'circle' design was perfect for these pictures because they reminded me of 'fish scales' and we were at the aquarium at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. Supplies used:
Cricut Craft Room
FUN IN THE SUN Cricut Cartridge (shark)
BIRTHDAY BASH Cricut Cartridge (title: Aquarium)
BLACKLETTER Cricut Cartridge (title: Atlantis)
Black cateye stamp pad
Signo white gel pen
The shark is from FUN IN THE SUN cricut cartridge and was cut at 3.5":
I used the CRICUT CRAFT ROOM for my cricut cuts and wanted to share how I did my title.
The font feature of CRICUT CRAFT ROOM is pretty cool... check it out:
