I couldn't wait to use this design, accompanied by a favorite photo of my daughter from over the summer. One quick look at the page and you can easily see why this design coordinated so perfectly with the snap of my little girl in a polka dotted inner tube - circles, circles and more circles!
I sized the file down, and cut it out of the same white cardstock that I used for the base of my page. Those open circles were just begging to be filled with snippets of fun and colorful papers, don't you think?! A few strategically placed sequins and embellishments find a nice home among the circles, too!
If you haven't already noticed, I am constantly reaching for my stash of Kerri Bradford studio stamps. In my opinion, you can never have enough text throughout a page. A bright teal ink combined with these versatile sentiments, really jazz up those arrow diecuts.
I knew I'd need a bold font for my title, to prevent it from being overshadowed by the circle design on the top half of my page. I turned to the Hashtags 1 cut file, knowing that the strong type and fun sentiments would be a great match. I selected '#funtimes' - cutting it once from the same textured white cardstock and again from a subtle blue grid patterned paper. Using the blue diecut title as a shadow, creates interest and separation from the white background, while still maintaining cohesion.
