Hello there!! Welcome to Day 2 of the Mosh Posh Blog Party! Today a few members of our design team are showing off some up close shots of our May Layouts and giving you some insight into our creative process.
I have a scrapbooking tool that I absolutely love. My Fiskars XL Circle Punch. I *love* my circle punch. If I can't find embellishments that are exactly the right color that I need, I always know that I can make my own! Plus, this is a very cost effective way to scrapbook. There are always scraps left over just begging to be circles! :)
For this layout, I started off with making a background with the circles. I inked them so that they would stand out against the cardstock. I then punched out more circles for the tree. Then I just trimmed them until they were the exact size that I wanted. I didn't want them to be perfect circles, so this worked exactly as I wanted it to.
A leftover piece of ribbon, a felt heart, a few chipboard butterflies (which I could have cut out of patterned paper if I hadn't had any) and I was done! Easy peasy scrapbooking.
Thank you so much for stopping by on our blog hop today!! Just to show how much I appreciate all of the people who read my blog, I would like to offer this little RAK for one lucky reader! Just leave a comment here to have a chance at these 100 buttons and 100 Prima flowers. You can never have enough buttons or blooms, right? You have until 9:00PM, Friday, May 22 to enter!
