How To-sday | Add a Circular Window

Posted by Melodee Cloud

Today's How To-sday post comes from the fabulous Charity Hotrum. I have admired her style for quite some time now. I even got to meet her in person at the Mall of America last year. Charity and Judy took one of the classes I taught. Hanging out with them was definitely a highlight from my trip!

Circular Window

Layering circle cut frames of cardstock makes a great base for a one-of-a-kind layout. Add a little scrapbooking mist and you'll discover how easy it is to distress and curl your paper in one easy step.

Supplies needed:

  • 10 inch dinner plate with a deep rim
  • 3 sheets of 12 x 12 cardstock
  • Scrapbooking Mist
  • Assorted Brads
  • Circle Cutter
