For today’s memory keeping Monday post I decided to share some ideas on using circles on scrapbook layouts. There are so many ways to incorporate circles on your layouts. Whether it’s with punches or dies, creating a circular element on your layout using something else or even using a circular shape cut file.
Creating a grid style layout with circles is one of my favourite ways to use them on my layouts. Depending on the size of circles, you can really alter the look of your layout.
For this layout I used a variety of punched circles to create a larger circle, or wreath. You can easily take this idea and use any shaped punch or die to create the circle. Try it with hexagons, hearts or even triangles!
The Sunset layout uses circles to create a border at the top and bottom of the layout. Another fun way to incorporate circles on your layouts.
On this 2-page spread I used circles in a few different ways. I used it to give my background some interest, as a place holder for my journaling and to emphasize one of the photos.
This Happy Halloween layout incorporates a circle in a way that’s a bit less obvious. To create a circular element on the layout I used long narrow triangles to form a circle to hold my photo. It’s less obvious but still incorporates a circle.
Another way to incorporate circles on your layouts is with stamped images. These flowers or sunbursts aren’t obvious circles but they are circular in shape.
Using a circular shaped cut file is another great way to include circles on your scrapbook layouts. There are so many circular cut files available!
There are so many other ways to include circles on your layouts, the only limit is your imagination! I encourage you to give a few of these a try.
Until next time,
