Today, the new American Crafts Design Team for 2014-2015 is bringing you a fun Blog Hop filled with inspiration and giveaways!! Make sure you visit all of the Blogs to see what everyone created!
I was *im*patiently waiting for the awesome new Shimelle collection to arrive on my doorstep!! :) As soon as I opened it, I got to work on my layout for the Blog Hop, and here's what I created!
One of my most favorite things about the Shimelle collection, is the mix of neutral colors, with brighter colors. I wanted to create a fun layout with a lot of colors and circle elements. I used the Going in Circles cut file from my Etsy Store, The Cut Shoppe, and added different patterned papers behind the die cut circles. I used the largest circle as a base for my photo and title and embellished the smaller circles with die cut hearts and Cork Embellishments.
