Lawn Fawn: Inspiration Week, part II

Looking for the Technique Tuesday blog hop? Please click here.

Hello again! Today, the Lawn Fawn blog is featuring the circle and scalloped circle dies. These dies work with most cutting systems. I have a really old Cuttlebug, and these dies work without any extra shims. Just the A, B, and C cutting boards. The circle set features 8 dies and the scalloped set has 7. And of course, they match in size. Yay for that!

This layout is about our hike in Joshua Tree National Park earlier this year. That place is really magical. Such a strange, beautiful world. If you are ever in that area, I highly recommend it. Although, consider going during winter. It's hot as heck during the summer. Yes, I've been there during the summer. Ten minutes in that heat made me want to cry the ugly cry. Plus, summer is when the rattlesnakes are awake and perky... Just sayin'.

To make this layout, I cut up a sheet of Elle's Studio paper to 8.5" x 11". Those pink and red stripes at the bottom are part of the patterned paper. Love that paper!  The photos are cut using the dies. And the title was stamped with Harold's ABC. A little stitching, and I was done.

Speaking of stitching, I created a heart and arrow template for the Lawn Fawn class I taught at CKU-San Diego this past weekend. Simple design with dots, which is where you should poke holes for stitching (I use a Maya Road star pin – perfect for this job!) I've uploaded it to my account, and you can downloaded by clicking here. (Be nice and download this for personal use only.)

Thanks for dropping by today. Don't forget to go by Lawn Fawn, and leave a comment to win awesome prizes!

A wonderful layout. Love how the cirles of photos pop out from the more solid background. Love the stitching too.

The circles are great way to showcase the photos. I like it. The stitching is very cool too. Lovely job.

Love how you've used the circles - I struggle with that. You recently commented on a photo of mine for BPC of the oldest door in Surrey. If you're interested I blogged some more pictures and info about our church here:

I love the photos and the stitching -- I have so much trouble cropping my photos like this but you make it look so easy!
