Take 2 with Jamie

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.Take2Graphic

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 anything1412Dec-Warm&Cozy04

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!
