Featuring Mosaic Moments Circle Dies:
Circle Center Border, Circle Tiles and Tabs Die set (3×3 & 2×2)
Miz Scarlett is One
One of my favorite ways to use the various border dies like the Circle Center Border is as a title or journal spots. The 2×2 and 3×3 Circle Tiles work very nicely as frames and all are perfect fits for Pattern #366. Repetition of the circles throughout will make a strong design.
It’s hard to believe but it’s been a year since Miz Scarlett was born! The photos this week are from her first Birthday Party this weekend with the family. So I took a break from the fall color pallet I’ve been working with and went in search of something festive for my little girl’s celebration.
Looking through my stash of papers I landed on this DCWV Rainbow Spots paper so full of circles of color! I used this as inspiration for colors to use as mats and frames. I was tempted to use a white grid, but thought I’d have a better look going with a pink grid color.
All the Circle Frame Dies are cut in color and the Circle Center Border is all white. I’ve cut three die cuts for each of the 2 sections so that I could layer them to achieve a piece with depth and a simple tone on tone look.
TIP: Repetition: Creating a Strong Design
I’m going to repeat circles with two sizes of frames and three sizes of circles from the patterned paper to the embellishments. Repeating the circles in various sizes will reinforce the circle element used for this birthday theme.
Three of a Kind
1. The Patterned Paper is DCWV Rainbow Spots and a full page of multicolored circles in neat rows.
2. In the center of each circle section of the Circle Center Border die I placed a cardstock circle of color to mimic the patterned paper. This gives a larger size variation of the circles.
3. The final, smallest addition of circles was a bit of bling perfect for a birthday celebration in the form of sequin ‘confetti’ scattered in the recesses of the die piece and anchored with small Glue Dots.
I used a white gel pen to jot down names, ages and the event in the circles of the centers, and that completes the layout.
