Tech Tip with Jennifer

Hello Scrapbook Circle friends! It’s no secret to those who know me that I am a stalk-a-razzi when it comes to taking pictures of my kids. I love capturing those little moments when they are unaware of the camera, carefree, and completely genuine.

For this month’s tech tip, I want to share with you how I took an entire series of photos and created a layout showing the event from beginning to end.

To create this project, I began by using the Scrapbook Circle You Are Here digital cut file with Shimelle patterned paper. Next, I placed my photos in a circle on the white card stock and began adding shapes in between. When I am going through this process, I use photo squares to “tack” my photos and embellishments in place. This allows me to move items and stick them back down again without using permanent adhesive.


With the first layer of embellishments in place, I machine-stitched a circle to attach them to the card stock.


I continued this process of placing embellishments around the circle and stitching them in place, and finally stitched the photos onto the card stock.


My final photo is larger than the others to bring more attention to the end of the series. I love these goofy girls, and these fun pictures of them dancing on our trampoline during winter break is a fun reminder of their special friendship.


I completed the layout by adding a few of the puffy stickers and stamps from the March kit along with the title in the middle of the circle.


Thank you for stopping by today! Don’t forget to visit the Scrapbook Circle of Friends Facebook group for more inspiration from the creative team as well as monthly challenges.
