This week, it's been all about Circles on the American Crafts Blog! I love using circles on my layouts and decided to go BIG on my layout!
How to: Cut a large circular die cut and layer pieces of the Rise & Shine collection behind the die cut (or trace a large plate onto patterned paper and cut it out to use as the large circle element on your background). Machine stitch with white thread around the interior of the circle. Add a circle shaped photo to the center of your layout, using pop dots. Place the Woodland Thickers around your photo in a half circle shape. Add embellishments on the left hand side of the photo using cork stickers, wooden buttons, stickers and enamel dots. Finish your layout by adding a hand stitched circle around the outside edge of the large circle, using black embroidery floss.
