Happy Tuesday!! I don’t know about you but to me the month of October seems to be flying be as fast as can be. Here in Arizona, we are finally starting to get a little relief from all of the extreme heat which means we get to venture outside again! One of our favorite fall activities is attending a local fair up in the mountains. I love the smell of popcorn and cotton candy and the wild lights and sounds and even the silly fair games. Today, I decided to document a day at the fair using the Full Circle stamps in a little different way and the black background was the perfect way to just help everything pop right off the page.
Just in case you didn’t know already, these are my favorite stamps! The great patterns and options make this such a versatile stamp set and one that I reach for all of the time. Today, I stamped the circles in four different colors of ink that would match my collection I wanted to use. I made a whole punch of circles and then punched them out with a circle punch.
After punching them all out, I cut each circle in half so that I could layer them up and make some scalloped borders. I wanted four different borders that were offset at wonky angles. I grabbed my sewing machine with some bright orange thread and stitched them all in place. That bright pop of orange is just so fun, don’t you think?!
After that, it was time to embellish the rest of the layout. By adding a few little strips of patterned paper and a couple of stickers, the bright colors from the stamping coordinated perfectly to create a cohesive layout.
Lastly, I threw in a few chipboard letters for a title and some enamel dots and the look was complete. I love that this Full Circle stamp set allows me to create unique embellishments that really make my layouts unique while still coordinating perfectly with the collections that I already have in my stash. To me, that’s a double bonus! Like winning the grand prize massive stuffed animal at the fair. Make sure to stop by my You Tube channel to check out more details about how this layout came together.
