Five Ideas for Creating with Circles by Jill Cornell

Five Ideas for Creating with Circles by Jill Cornell @ shimelle.com

Linear design and clean lines are traditionally how most of us scrapbook but I think it is a little bit exciting to incorporate something round to offset those square and rectangular shapes. Working with circles open so many possibilities and I have five ideas to share with you today.

Five Ideas for Creating with Circles by Jill Cornell @ shimelle.com

1) Crop photos into a circle – For this layout, I created a simple template in Photoshop and placed each photo into the circle and printed them out. Another option would be using a circle template to cut the physical photo. I made a simple grid and then added a few circle embellishments in the form of a transparent doily and flair.

2) Cut circles in half – On this layout about one of my daughters, I used the halves of a few strategically placed doily stickers as embellishments. The rounded designs form a visual triangle.

3) Punch circles to form scallops – For this love card, I punched rows of 6 circles from patterned paper and adhered them so they ran off the card. I trimmed the sides and then embellished with stickers.

4) Make a circular statement – On this layout about my daughters and their daddy, I used a pre-made circle die-cut sheet by Jillibean Soup (use a die-cut machine to create a similar look). I backed several of the open circles with patterned paper and embellished other circles with dimensional stickers.

5) Create a cluster of circles – For this final layout, I took my inspiration from the pre-printed doily in the corner of the background patterned paper and created a cluster of patterned paper circles with a photo cropped into a circle.

    Casetify offers a simple, thin case that clips over your iPhone 6 Plus. The case is cut away around the control buttons on both sides as well as along the entire top and bottom of the iPhone
