Scrapbook Circle Guest Designer

Hello again!  I'm back today to share that I am the April Guest Designer for Scrapbook Circle!  I was so excited when Jenni invited me, and I had a lot of fun playing with the April "One Fine Day" Main Kit and the "Now or Never" and "Stay Cool" Add-On Kits. 

I was instantly drawn to this beautiful blue wood grain paper from Webster's Pages.  It's so different and unique, and it made the perfect background.  You can probably guess what I did to it...haha :D  Yep...I added white gesso and lots of fun watercolor.  I was inspired by the Simple Stories paper with all the pretty circles, and so I fussy cut a lot of them out.  I also used a circle punch on the Fancy Pants corrugated paper.  I wanted a random look with the circles, and after they were adhered, I machine stitched through some of them.

This awesome acrylic "lucky" piece is in the Main Kit, and it's perfect for a title. I added in lots of little goodies in this area...Simple Stories Brads, Elle's Studio die cuts, Pinkfresh Studio stickers and washi tape, and that pretty little polka dotted bow.  I also punched a few circles from some of the Pinkfresh 6x6 Paper pad.

I did more of the same on the other side of the page. This mint colored corrugated paper is so fun!  It gives awesome texture, and I was able to punch it easily.

I used the packaging from the Elle's Studio Bits & Pieces as a layer here.  That pink color and the stripes were just too pretty to toss!  I also scattered some of the Pinkfresh puffy sequin stickers around the page.

Here's one more close-up of the journaling area.  I fussy cut a few circles from the Dear Lizzy 6x6 Paper Pad, and also a few words from the back of the Simple Stories circle paper.  Those words make excellent accent pieces!

I have a process video for this layout if you're's how the layout was made from start to finish.  I hope you enjoy!

Thanks so much for visiting me today!  Be sure to check out Scrapbook Circle, and stay tuned for a few more projects from me this month :)

  4. Congratulations, Missy! This is just as cute as can be! LOVE all those happy, little, patterned circles! You've had the opportunity to work with an awful lot of kit clubs out there. I recently canceled my Hip Kit Club orders just because I really don't like how heavily they depend on Facebook for customer challenges and whatnot. I'm not a Facebooker. Anyway, I'm on the hunt for another club and have an awful lot of prospects but would love to know which one or two that you think are the most well-rounded and have opportunities for playing along with monthly challenges... when you get a minute ;).

  5. Absolutely gorgeous! Congrats on being the Guest Designer!
