Scrapbooking with Circles

Hello! Happy Tuesday! Lets talk about scrapbooking with circles, okay?

Lets talk Tuesdays have been lacking around here...I'm sorry! Through the holidays I've struggled to stay on track with scrapbooking projects. I should be back to posting regularly again very soon! Today I'm just popping in with a quick post about incorporating circles into your layouts.

I used the * Crate Paper Oh Darling collection for most of this layout. It's an older collection but it's one that I'm hanging onto. I think it's adorable!

 I did something on this layout that I haven't done for a long time. I cut my photo into a circle and I actually love the results. I have a super scientific way of getting my photo to fit into the center of that doily...it's a bowl. Yep, I took the doily (I used a * Bo Bunny Medium Doily) and found the right size of bowl that I wanted my photo. I cut out the photo and adhered it to the center of the doily.

Really there are better ways to cut circles but right now but I'm in between circle cutters. I had a really old Coluzzle (remember those?). Well, mine finally broke and I'm trying to decide if I want to buy the * Martha Stewart Circle Cutter. Do you have a circle cutter that you love? There's also the option of cutting circles with an electronic die cutting machine. I LOVE my * Silhouette Cameo and I use it when I need to cut more shapes or when I need to cut a more intricate shape. When I need small circles my go to tool is always * circle punches

 To make the layout flow and have a more cohesive feeling I made sure to add a few more circles. To keep the circle theme going without overwhelming the layout I added a few drops of spray mist. My favorite spray mists are * Heidi Swapp color shine. The glimmer that is left when these spray mists dry stole my heart the first time I saw it. I rarely use any other spray mists.

I added a circular element to each of the embellishment clusters. Easy peasy! Do you find scrapbooking with circles difficult? Hopefully you found a little bit of information that will make scrapbooking with circles easier.
