You may remember that I told you that I had been asked by the lovely Erika Martin to be on her â€˜Soul Teamâ€™ for the Soul Scrappers forum â€“ well today is my first challenge! So I do hope you will go to the forum and join in on the challenges and fun!
This is my very first Technique Challenge and I hope you like what Iâ€™ve done. This is all a bit daunting for me to be on a â€˜Soul Teamâ€™ with such talented ladies!
I thought at first using circles was a bit basic but I do know that some are new to scrapbooking. It also doesnâ€™t hurt to go back to the basics and revisit some of the techniques we did when we started scrapbooking and maybe use them in different ways.
Iâ€™ve used the Stampinâ€™ Up! Love Sparkles Simply Scrappinâ€™ kit for this layout and my lovely new Circle Scissor Plus. I have fallen in love with this tool as it makes making circles so so easy!
Iâ€™ve incorporated the circle adhesive die-cuts from the Simply Scrappinâ€™ kit and then cut some more with the Circle Scissor in coordinating colours for this layout.
The large scalloped circle Iâ€™ve done by cutting out the largest circle with the Circle Scissor then Iâ€™ve taken the guard off my corner rounder and gone all around the edge for the â€˜scallopedâ€™ look.
Here is a close up of the â€œI love Youâ€ on the bottom left and the â€œyou mean everythingâ€ embellishment
To make the â€œYou mean Everything to meâ€ Iâ€™ve used sentiments from the Always stamp set and the frame is from the Frames with a Flourish set.
Now the circle scissor just doesnâ€™t cut circles â€“ you can also draw circles with it!
With this layout I took my piece of Specialty Designer Series paper from the Sweet Slumber pack and drew some circles in pencil.
I then used those pencilled circles as a guide for journaling,
Once I had finished and the ink was dry I just used an eraser to remove the pencilled circles.
Here is a close-up of the end of the quote and my â€œflowerâ€ embellishment.
I do hope you like what Iâ€™ve done and if you want to do this challenge please and join over at Soul Scrappers to participate in the challenge. Go to the Thursday Technique Challenge 3 post for all the instructions for this challenge.
I can’t wait to see what you make!
