Copycat Circles

Happy Friday!  Today I want to share a layout that was "scraplifted" from my inspiration journal.  

I recycle my magazines, but before I add them to the recycling pile, I rip out any pages that contain layouts or techniques that really spark my interest; these pages are then cut down and stapled into my inspiration notebook.  

I never scraplift entire pages though (seriously, it's way too stressful for me...I'm the same way with sketches, but we'll save that for another post!).  Usually one or two elements on a page catch my eye, and those elements I will then use as one of my layouts.

For today's layout, I was inspired by a page that contained a column of circles.  In today's video, I walk you through my process:

(You can hear my boys and cats in the background.  I really had to edit this kitten kept jumping in front of the camera!)

Here's a close-up of the row of circles:

And one more time, here's the completed layout:

Do you keep an inspiration notebook?  Or do you pin all your favorite designs on Pinterest?  I actually do both.  ;)

Have a great weekend!  I'll see you next week!


  1. Great layout, Dawn!! LOVE all the circles - they're one of my favorite elements!!

  2. Love it! That row of circles is inspiring to me. And cute photos :)
    I can't watch the video yet because I am on the phone, but hope to later :)
