Happy National Scrapbook Day everyone! I'm excited to be celebrating this amazing hobby today and sharing some inspiration!  I love any design that features circles or stars, so when I saw Bea Valint's layout in the Winter 2016 issue of SCT with the fun circle of stars, I was in scrapbook heaven!


Seriously, how cute is this design?! I love the colorful patterns and whimsical stars, all joined together with circular stitching. I incorporated a similar concept on my page that documents 12 years of marriage (though we'll be celebrating 19 this summer – wow does time fly!)


Tip: I used circle punched papers and layered die cuts to form my circle and added button embellishments for texture. I typed a block of journaling inside the circle, and let the two photos overlap the lower right edge as well.



I few tiny punched butterflies were added outside the circle, and I die cut a script word for my title, giving the circle a nice base to rest upon.


Hope you enjoy reading the SCT blog today and are inspired to create something to celebrate!
