Christmas With Circles!

Hi, Happy New Year!
I started scrapping my Christmas photos this week, I wonder how many more years my daughter is going to sit on Santa's lap for, now she is a real pro. The photographer took 3 photos, which she was smiling in all of them and Santa only this one. When the photographer said "that was easy" I followed by saying "She's scrap abused" lol!
I don't know if he knew what I meant but he did laugh, he properly thought what a weirdo!

Over the Christmas break I was given a box full of goodies to play with and one of the items that I fell in LOVE with is the 12x12 Circle Set Frame C828 you can do whatever you like with these, cover, paint, stain, glitter, emboss, you name it.
With Santa's list layout, I used the outer frame piece of the set.
1. Cut and push out the circles from the middle of the set.
2. Paint or Ink the chipboard frame.
3. Glue some vintage style lace or in this case an old table cloth to the frame and cut out the middle and around the edges, leaving over hang.
4. Add extra inking to distress, rubbing over raised parts.
5. Use Liquid Pearls around the circle, making dots as you go.
 Note: Tap the back of the frame on to a desk top, so that the small dots don't have peeks.
Love this October Afternoon Holiday Style.

I also used: 2D Flower Pack.
1. Which I inked first in red.
2. Then embossed with red Christmas embossing powder and heat set.
3. Make rosettes in different sizes, large 12x1.5 inches and small 6x.75 inches.
4. Attached rosettes to back and the front of the shape.
5. Added some baker's twine, buttons and hat pins.


This is another layout I did using the 12 x12 Circle set, and I have 15 more circles to use in the set,
 so I'm sure you will see more.
Thanks Gilly oxo
