Going In Circles

I’m here to start my week with you and I wanted to begin by sharing a layout I created with the amazing Corinne line that was sent to me! This collection just screams summer to me and since we are in the midst of early summer now they make me smile even more! I adore the colors in this line and hands down this is my favorite paper and I’m thinking I need 20 more sheets of it!

I decided to use solely this paper to highlight our recent trip to Charleston, SC. We have been there before and this time I took more detailed shots, which were perfect for these little circles! You can fit lots of details into these little circles.

The circles were perfect for my 1.5” punch. I cropped and turned the photos into circles with Photoshop Elements, printed them and used my Marvy Uchida 1.5” punch to punch them out. To make them stand out a bit more I outlined them in black pen.

Then I used various SEI Corinne stickers and embellishments to embellish random other stickers throughout the page.

For the title I wanted it to stand out and make a bigger impact. I used my craft knife to cut around the outer circle of 3 of the circles. Then I used white misting ink to tone down the bright (yet beautiful) colors on these 3 circles. I backed the circle paper with Sunshine cardstock, then used foam adhesive to adhere the title circles.

Thanks for stopping by today and I’ll be back tomorrow with something yummy!
