Weekend Fun Challenge – Going in Circles

Every week on the Victoria Marie FB Group I host two challenges: a Wednesday Hump Day Challenge and a Weekend Fun Challenge.

“Hi Mini Me!” by Victoria Marie

For the Weekend Fun Challenge, the group created layouts using circles as a focal point.

Fun, right?

I have such a hard time using shapes on my layouts. So I pulled out my Silhouette Cameo and found this circle die cut. My thought was to back the die cut circles with various pattern papers then embellish with wood veneers, chip board, stamping, and enamel dots. The result? Amazing!!!!

The photo I used is of me and my littleย  Corinne. It is uncanny how much we look alike! Hence the title “Hi Mini Me”! I took this picture on Mother’s Day this year and really wanted to scrap it for our family album. I adore my little girl and I love to capture these fun little moments. She won’t be little for too long.

Sigh and tear. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I used the April I Lived Scraptastic Kit and exclusive stamps.

  • Papers – Scraptastic Exclusive pattern paper, Life Documented by Simple Stories, and Playful by Authentique
  • Marquee Font Letters by Thickers
  • From my stash – clips, cork embellishments, wood veneers
  • Twine by American Crafts
  • Enamel Dots by Simple Stories Snap Collection
  • Ink – Stampin’ Up Night of Navy, More Mustard, and Riding Hood Red

This was probably one of the best layouts I made this weekend! Check out my process video on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel!

And don’t be afraid to use shapes on your next layout!!!

Happy scrappin!
