So I am doing the 6 x Circle punches and I would have to say without a doubt these are my most used and most versatile punches. They have so many uses. I use them alot on Scrapbooking Layouts, but also on cards.
I have heaps of picutres to show you...it really is the best way to showcase how versatile these punches are.
Firstly, Circles are wonderful for use as general embellishments on scrapbook pages...
Some of you may have seen this one before, but I thought I'd use it again as it is a good example of using patterned paper with the circle punches.
Whether you use one, three, six or more circles, you really can't go wrong. They really add some interest to scrapbook layouts.
Then you can add layers to your circles. Whether you use a few different size punches or combine a circle with another punched shape such as the scallop circle or a square, it will always give a great effect.
Another great use for one of the larger circle punches is to punch out a photo. This can really draw attention to an expression on the face of someone if you crop in close and punch out your circle...
This one below may be a little hard to see, but if you take several punched circle shapes (in this case white circles) and put them together they give a flower like effect. You could also place half circles on a page to give a large scallop like effect.
I love using half circles as well. All I do to create this effect is punch out the circle then cut it in half using my trimmer. This layout was done a few years ago and I loved it so much that I recently created a card using the same effect and similar colours!
