Sunday Market

I have a couple of new My Little Shoebox layouts to share with you today :)
I have been experimenting with 2 pagers a bit lately. Not sure why but I am really liking the change. I have been told that 2 page LOs were all the rage before I started scrapping, I think I must have missed this trend.

I was so excited when I saw the new circle diecuts that were the CHA-W release for MLS that I set right to work making my own. I started with this piece of patterned paper.

This one was really easy-I traced a circle using a mixing bowl (you don't really expect me to use them for cooking, do you??) and then trimmed the scallops off. After seperating each arc shape from each other, just reassemble them around your circle and adhere (it takes a little bit of extra work) and then finish it off with some stitching (mine is doodled).

All supplies with the exception of trim, doilie, tags & die cut cardstock are My Little Shoebox, Sunday Market

This LO is about 1 of my favorite types of flowers (I got these for my birthday a few years ago). You'll notice I matted some of the patterns to give them a bit of pop this technique is a great way to use up some of those smaller scraps of dark cardstock you may have hanging around. I also layered my sticker elements and popped them with foam adhesive for added punch.

Thanks for popping by- Sorry this post is a bit short, I am still a bit sick with this cold. I am hoping to back to 'normal' any day now.
