Inspired by the “open road” theme of several items in the July kit, Our Adventure, our next challenge is to create a layout with the theme of traveling by road. For example: a road trip, a first car layout, or just a selfie behind the wheel while running errands (Parked! Not driving!). I asked Diana to get us started with an inspiration page and she scrapbooked a great story for this theme:
We’ve been watching Diana’s daughter grow up through scrapbook pages for years here at Scrapbook Circle. She’s driving?! When did that happen?! I especially love Diana’s use of the large alpha patterned paper. She said it reminded her of the vision test that the DMV makes you take before getting your permit. Perfect!
Do you have an open road story to tell? Here’s how to play along!
1. Create a layout with a “Nice Ride” theme. We would love to see a Scrapbook Circle kit in action, but any materials will do.
2. Post your layout to your blog, our Facebook page, or an online gallery. Come back to this post and leave a direct link to your layout in the comments.
3. You have two weeks to play! Enter by Wednesday, July 16th, 9 pm Pacific, to be eligible for a $15.00 store credit! Good luck and happy scrapping!
We have a winner for our “Hot Stuff” challenge! Congratulations go to…

I used the Studio Calico patterned paper as my background, then several Basic Grey die-cuts as embellishments. I loved that the die-cuts included the color black so that my photo coordinated even better.
My favorite thing to work with from this kit has been the exclusive stamps. Those hashtags and the heart are just too cute! And the stamps are of fabulous quality, making them oh-so-easy to use.
Pinks, yellows, oranges and reds = one warm and fun layout! I can’t wait to see what you create for the challenge. See this post for the details on how to enter. You still have a week to show off your hot stuff. Good luck and happy scrapping!
I have to admit I don’t use a lot of flowers on my layouts, especially 3 dimensional ones. But the theme of my page was about a tea party, which of course brings to mind flowers, doilies, and everything frilly and fancy. So I went back to my flower making technique arsenal and decided to do some accordion fold flowers.
I simply cut strips of patterned paper and then punched one long edge with a punch. Then I folded back and forth the create the pleats and secured with a big glue dot. I topped each with another punched shape and a brad. I used patterned paper that had an ombre print on it, and I love how the pattern turned out once the flowers were folded.
I used a large doily on the background (from my stash) and a few punched circles of other patterns. The title I cut with my Cameo using a font called The Lost Paintings.
Why don’t you go back and think about a technique that you used to love but haven’t done in a while and try it on your next page!
Have you played with our exclusive printable, cut files, tags or wood veneer this month? Erin Stewart, our guest designer for June, enjoyed working with these exclusive items designed specifically for the Hello There kit. Here is a beautiful page she created with the exclusive printable:
Other than the background patterned paper, Erin added all the pattern and color she needed with elements from the printable. And the result is gorgeous!
We would love to see what you are doing with the printable, and all the other exclusives in the Hello There kit. Be sure to upload your pages to the Facebook page and we’ll come take a look! Have a great day!
A huge thank you to all of the talented people who applied to join our creative team. We are thankful to everyone who took time to share their talent with us!
We are excited to announce the new team for our August 2014 – July 2015 term.
We are looking forward to another creative year here at Scrapbook Circle!
Today we are sharing our Lifting You feature. This is when one of the Creative Team members takes a layout that was shared on the Scrapbook Circle Facebook Page and lifts it.
This month’s lift is from subscriber Chelsea. We love her whimsical approach to this layout. The smaller cluster of pictures is fun to look at and the splatters of ink go really well with the egg-coloring theme for her page.
Chelsea was lifted by Jenni. Jenni loved that Chelsea’s layout used several small photos. Her use of paint splatters lead your eye around the title and down to the photos. It is simple but powerful.
She took cues from Chelsea’s page by using the same number and arrangement of photos. Jenni also used one of the Heidi Swapp watercolor die cuts in the top left corner and splattered India ink around the clustered photos and embellishments.
Thanks, ladies! These pages are fun and colorful — just what we need to start off another week of creativity!
