DESCRIPTION: I was punching out some business cards with a circle punch and that's when the inspiration for this layout hit! You never know where or when inspiration will strike :)

JOURNALING SAYS: I don't know if there's anything more magical than the Christmas markets in Germany. The sights, the sounds, the smells, all of that squeezed between Bavarian buildings and it's just so perfect. Love 'em!

HOW TO: Punch 2" circles from Christmasy papers then trim each circle into quarters. Arrange the circles along with 3 black & white round photos on an aqua cardstock layout base. Trim one quarter from each circle in half and piece them back together using dimensional adhesive. Embellish the center of each circle with a ribbon bow or sequin or button. Tuck a wood veneer snowflake under each photo then add the title with mini alphabet stickers. Journal on two tags trimmed to fit the edges.

SUPPLIES: Cardstock, patterned paper, buttons, stickers, sequins, wood veneer snowflakes, tags, ribbon bows, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Circle punch: EK Success
