Circles Layout by Zsoka Marko

Friday, April 24, 2020

Hi there friends, Zsoka Marko stopping by to share a new layout with you today that I've created for the Paige Evans Design Team with the Bloom Street collection! Everybody has go-to layouts, right? This is one of mine. I've been making these circle layouts for like 5 years and I never seem to get tired of them. I probably make one with every scrapbook collection I work with. I find it to be a great and easy way to add lots of colors and patterns to a page.
This time I decided to add a lof of the different papers a bit differently. Instead of cutting circles from various patterned papers, I now have multiple designs on each circle. To avoid a big mess, I kept all the circles uniform.

I started out by cutting paper strips from different patterned papers. I glued these on a heavyweight cardstock, then die cut circles from it. You could totally use your Cameo (or any other electric die cutting machine for that matter) for this but for me this was quicker since my manual die cutting machine and dies are right where I craft (my Cameo is not). Plus, this way I had more control over which colors I had in my circles.

I added some decorative stitching for more texture and interest (and also because I really don't trust any glue to keep things in place for good haha). I then decided on a background paper, the diagonal rainbow stripe B-side of Paper 20, and adhered my circles to it as well as some photos, which I also cropped into circles. I kept embellishing to a minimum, only added a few heart Puffy Vinyl Stickers and words, plus a few Cardstock Stickers and Ephemera Die Cuts. I used a stapler and some stitching to keep the puffy stickers in place (again, I don't trust glue LOL). To finish off my page, I wrote my journaling and stamped the date.

That's it! Simple but fun. What is your go-to design on your scrapbook pages? I'd love to hear!
