Hiya! This month I was assigned the Take 2 Challenge. This is where I take an older Scrapbook Circle layout (any Scrapbook Circle layout–mine or someone else’s) and recreate it.
I got to pick which layout I wanted to lift. It was so hard to choose just one, there is tons of great inspiration in the Ideas archive. But for these photos, I decided to go with one of Monika’s On this Day layouts.
Here’s my finished page:
And here’s a side by side comparison of our two pages. Monika’s circle was a bit looser, whereas I made mine fairly tight. She added some mist splatters and I kept my page dry. I also added journaling on the side there. But overall, they have the same look and feel.
I loved the none traditional Christmas colors in the Made of Stories kit. I lucked out that they went so perfectly with my plaid pajama bottoms.
I have a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine. But I had fun stitching in a circle. I had never tried that before!
I also really loved the stamps in this month’s kit. They can go with anything!
If ever you’re in need of some awesome inspiration, I’d suggest just going back through the Ideas tab. There’s a lot of wonderful there!
