To create this layout you will need:

Step 1: Use a piece of Light Gray Solid Cardstock as the base of this layout.

Step 2: Using the outside edge of the small Custom Cutting System Circle Pattern and the Red Blade, cut eight circles from the mustard ornate damask designer paper.

Step 3: Cut a piece of any cardstock to measure 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″. Use this as a template to fold circles. Fold a circle in half to find the midway points. Place the square template on the midway points as shown. Fold the circle along the template. Repeat to fold the other seven circles.

Step 4: Cut a piece of charcoal bricks designer paper to measure 5-3/4″ x 11-1/4″. Adhere the folded circles as shown.

Step 5: Cut a piece of polka dots designer paper to measure 6″ x 11-1/2″. Cut a piece of maroon tiled mosaic designer paper to measure 6-1/4″ x 12″. Layer these pieces as shown and add to the base.

Step 6: Cut three mats from the umber woodgrain tonal paper to measure 3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″. Cut a “This is my life. I’m happy to be living it.” mat to measure 3-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ and adhere to one of the umber woodgrain mats. Add these mats to the page.

Step 7: Adhere stickers and embellishments, using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.

  1. I want to use the Circle Cutter. What size are the circles? 3″? Beautiful layout.

  2. This is beautiful. What size circle was used? I only have the circle cutter, not the system.
