I challenged Rebecca to wow us with the washi tape sheet by Crate Paper found in May’s kit, My Favorite. And WOW, did she ever put that tape to the test!
Rebecca punched butterflies from the washi tape as accents for her page. I love how the different patterns on the sheet translate to the delicate wings.
Rebecca also used a strip of tape for journaling…
…and some to attach her photo.
What will you do with the washi tape? We would love to see! Be sure to upload your projects to our Facebook page. Have a great day!
For today’s Lifting You feature, we are sharing this layout that Jenni made and shared on the Scrapbook Circle Facebook page.
I was instantly drawn to the clustered embellishments and added pop of color and title in the lower corner. The picture is lovely and could be a postcard! I also loved the way she used the little wood chips scattered like that.
Jenni was lifted by Rebecca. She kept the same basic design — a single photo in the upper left corner with the title in the right. Rebecca really liked the diagonal flow so she tried to include that as well. And the for the little bits, she included the little stars from the May kit. For the soft texture of the feather, Rebecca added the Maya trim.
I just love these pages! Gorgeous work ladies, and thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Daniela here with a layout from May kit – My Favorite.
I really liked the Fancy Pants Trendsetter Decorative Bag with stars, that came in the kit. I love stars and use them quite often on boy layouts.
I used a star pattern mask from Studio Calico that came in our add-on January kit and added modeling paste to the mask. You can use any mask that you have. I even tried regular cardstock with punched stars and it worked the same. Once the modeling paste was dry I added drops of mist.
I added more die cut stars from white cardstock. Some were cut with Silhouette Cameo and some were punched out. If you need some stars I have a free file download on my blog for Silhouette users.
In the end I added three Basic Grey Metal Studs/Brass Stars to the page.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you give this technique a try. If you don’t like stars, try other shapes, hearts, triangles, circles…
Make sure you share your projects on our Facebook page.
Good morning and Happy National Scrapbook Day today! I have a layout to share with you using the new “My Favorite” kit. I love documenting relationships my kids have with family members and special friends. My layout today features the girls with their little cousin. I focused on the blues and reds in the kit along with a few neutrals.
There are a lot of great embellishments in the kit this month – love those Maggie Holmes bows and the Lily Bee brads.
I played off the triangle Lily Bee patterned paper and added more triangles with patterned paper.
Happy Scrapping today!
Scrapbook Circle is always growing, and with that comes the need for a few more helping hands. Please welcome, Sara Zenger to the Creative Team!
Sara will be helping Lisa, Tessa, Heather and myself with emails, partnerships and some other fun stuff we can’t wait to share with you. Let’s get to know Sara a little bit better and welcome her to the Scrapbook Circle family.
Hi! I am Sara Zenger. I have loved taking photos and capturing my memories forever! I became addicted to scrapbooking and paper crafts about nine years ago. My go-to stash of scrapbooking supplies include foam tape/pop dots for added dimension, white and kraft cardstock because it goes with everything, and punches because they work on every layout and can look unique!
I love making layouts, cards and other paper craft projects. I feel the need to make a new banner for each approaching holiday and I adore decorating my own gift bags.
You can find me on the Paper Issues Team, as a Design Team member for PaperHaus Magazine, a member of the GCD Studios Team, and I’m currently a part of the Imaginisce Team.
I enjoy being a part of teams and online communities because I hope that somehow I can inspire someone to try something new and creative that they may never have thought of before — we all need inspiration from some place!
I am truly honored and excited to be a part of the Scrapbook Circle family! Follow me on my blog at www.sarazenger.blogspot.com.
Sara jumped right in and got to working with the May kit, My Favorite. I just love what she made here to help kick off the latest and greatest from Scrapbook Circle.
We are excited to welcome Sara to the team, and we hope you are, too. Leave her a little love to make her feel welcomed!
More than any other scrapbooking supply, I collect patterned paper. I can’t seem to get enough! One of my favorite ways to whittle down my patterned paper stash is to use an entire sheet as the background for a layout. Is this a technique you’ve tried? If not, or even if you’re a pro, I’ve got a challenge for you! Create a layout with patterned paper as your background. I asked Jennifer to play along and supply us with some inspiration. Let’s take a look:
Jennifer is a pro at mixing patterns! And she used my favorite sheet of patterned paper from the May kit, My Favorite! Those stars just steal my heart!
There isn’t a bit of plain cardstock anywhere! Jennifer used just the right patterns to give the title a place to rest, to highlight her photo, and to back up her journaling. So colorful and fun!
Ready to ditch the cardstock and play along? Here’s how!
1. Create a layout with a patterned paper background. You may use cardstock, just not as the background. We would love to see a Scrapbook Circle kit in action, but any materials will do.
2. Post your project to your blog, a gallery, or our Facebook page. Come back to this post and leave a comment with the direct link to your posted project.
3. Deadline to enter is Wednesday, May 15th, 9:00 pm Pacific.
A $10.00 shop credit will be awarded to a randomly selected player. Good luck and happy scrapping!
Wow! We had such pretty entries to our Springtime Hues challenge! Thanks to all who entered. Our randomly selected winner is…

Happy May! We are very happy to share our new May kit, My Favorite, with you today!
We love the mix of stripes, florals, chevron and stars. What do you think?
Plus we can’t wait to used those adorable Maggie Holmes mini bows, Jillibean Soup Corrugated People, Tutu Trim and a full sheet of washi paper. Also, don’t forget about the custom printable that comes with this kit!
Kits begin shipping next Monday!
Don’t forget about our Sugar and Spice add-on. We filled it with fabric frames and a 6 X 6 paper pad from Maggie Holmes, an embellishment pack from Lily Bee and a packed set of adhesive chipboard from Basic Grey.
Be sure to stop by our ideas page to see what our design team has been creating with this kit!
Some of my favorite embellishments in this month’s kit are the Cosmo Cricket fabric brads. I asked Daniela Dobson to show us how she used the brads that she received:
I love the title treatment! The brad in place of the “o” is cute, eye-catching and fun! The brad in the center of the layered heart embellishment is sweet, too. Do you see how Daniela created a visual triangle by placing that third brad between the photos? Great design touch!
The brads make for fantastic texture and dimension, as well as color. And you can’t go wrong with Cosmo Cricket designs!
How did you use your Cosmo Cricket brads? We would love to see! Be sure to upload your layouts to our Facebook page. Have a great day!
