Zinia's Embellishment Circle Layout

Hello everyone! It’s Zinia and today I’m back with another stash burning layout idea.

As scrapbookers, we all love hoarding pretty paper things but sometimes there are images that have no connection to our life and memories. But even if we can’t create a whole page around those images, we can still use them as random elements.

So in this layout, we are going to fill a circle with all sorts of random images that I had a hard time using on other projects because of their theme.

The first step is to cut a hole in the middle of a cardstock sheet. I used white cardstock for my page but you can go for any color you like. If you have a die-cutting machine you can use it to cut out a perfect circle, but I didn’t care about precision here so I just used a craft knife.

The next thing we need to do is cover the back of that cardstock with foam adhesive. It really makes the design pop when we add a little dimension to our base. You can mount the cardstock on top of any pattern paper you love or even a solid color cardstock.

Once everything is in place, it’s time to start filling our circle with different embellishments. This is where you can use all the exotic animals that you can’t feature in other layouts or little themed elements that you don’t scrapbook about.

This is also a perfect design to finish leftover ephemera packs or random bits you’ve been hoarding forever. The best part is that all of these lovely embellishments are on display and they won’t be covered and outshined from other elements.

I’d recommend starting with the biggest pieces first and the filling the gaps with smaller bits.

When the circle is all filled, the only things that are missing are a photo and a title. You really don’t  need to embellish the page any further although you could if you wanted to.

The circular design creates the perfect spot for a title around the perimeter. There’s plenty of room so if you love creating long titles, this design won’t disappoint you.

So that’s our page for today, I really hope you enjoyed this and you got inspired to create a fun layout using up all the embellishments you’ve been hoarding over the years.

Until next time, happy crafting.
