Study Hall – Circle Pie Charts

studyhall

Hello Clique Fans, it’s Leeann here with you today. You probably have worked out that I love circles alot and  pie charts. Today I’m sharing this page I created using lots of circles cut into pie charts,  creating simply texture and layers with each one. I wanted to feature theses and fill the background. I’ve used alot of the more neutral papers from the Girl Cave December Kit. Its also a great way to use up the tiny bits of scrap pattern papers.

Here are a few detailed shots where you can see the layers and texture I talk about!

 I start cutting out a heap of circles all different sizes using my circle cutter. I use scraps of copy paper and cut a heap out too. I arrange them on my background until I like my placement. Next I take each circle and make  3/4 cuts into each one.  Layer and adhere each one with some double sided tape. using small scraps of pattern papers left lying around i wedge each piece and layer once again randomly placing anywhere.

Once I am happy with my layering I play with each layer and crunch/fold to add dimension and texture. I also like to doodle and added some scribbles with a lead pencil. And finally a splash of watercolour paint splatters.

So next time you use circles on your page try layering and cutting them into pies. I hope you enjoyed this little insight into how I create and have ago yourself!

It’s the Little Things

blog-image_yearbook

Hi, all! It’s Aliza here today on this fine December day. While the holidays are in full swing, I recently made a layout about our summer vacation. Clearly, I am not a chronological scrapper. I just go with inspiration when it strikes. I’ve have had this layout in mind since the summer, but I just wasn’t feeling it until now.

We scrapbookers like to stress the importance of capturing and documenting the little things in life. In this case, I captured a very tiny thing- a baby squirrel. I love the way the acetate tag frames the little guy.

Now, aside from being cute, what I loved about this moment is that we were right outside Universal Studios in Orlando. It was a giant, elaborate vacation place filled with many marvels created to impress and entertain. But this little creature was enough to draw the attention of many tourists. Which just goes to show you that sometimes the best things in life are free. Or, that good things come in small packages. You can choose the cliche that speaks to you. Either way, it’s a little moment, and a little lesson I wanted to write down for the ages.

As always, remember to document the little things, and the even littler things in life!

Finding Your Balance

blog-image_yearbook

Hi, everyone! It’s Aliza here, wishing all who are celebrating a Happy Thanksgiving!

I always feel a huge sigh of relief at Thanksgiving time. It comes after a long stretch without any breaks in our work schedule, and it means that the long winter vacation is coming up soon. The ability to slow down the pace of life for a few days does wonder for my spirit.

Speaking of slowing down, today I am sharing a layout about my need to slow things down in my life, and pare some of my responsibilities. In  the constant challenge of balancing  many roles, sometimes we lose our balance, and we need to get it back. (For the record, I have no desire to cut down on scrapbooking.)

This is basically a layout all about me, and where I am at right now. What I like about it is that it includes some details about how I spend my days, and what I am trying to accomplish. Now that little bit of me is recorded for posterity.

May this, and all your holidays, leave you feeling fresh and replenished.
