I've been waiting and waiting (and waiting!) for a kit with a circus theme, and the designers at CS did not disappoint! The artwork, colors, and embellishments are fun and exciting--great for creating pages, cards, and projects with joyful themes. I can see this kit being used for birthday parties, county fairs, zoos, and of course, circuses.
A traveling circus comes to a park about 10 minutes from our home every September. We haven't gone in a couple years, but my youngest daughter and I were excited to go this year and invited my middle daughter and her fiance. Our cell phones were working hard taking pictures of tigers, elephants, and pooches (oh my!). As I have fallen behind in my scrapbooking big time, the theme of this kit got me moving to have the pictures printed and complete some pages! (Maybe I'll be motivated to get some more photos developed and onto some scrapbook pages.)
My project for this hop uses the instructions Club Scrap develops for creating scrapbook pages using elements of the kit. I hope you are familiar with this process called "Assembly Line Scrapbooking" (ALSB). Club Scrap has hundreds of such documents which you can access HERE--you'll be amazed at the variety of cutting instructions and layouts that are created--I know I am!
|The first two pages of the ALSB instructions for the Big Top Deluxe kit.|
|Papers and layout the same as the instructions.|
|Different papers, pages have been swapped, and the left page is a mirror image of the original.|
|Same as the original, just different papers.|
I specifically chose layout 1 & 2 because of the three 3.5x3.5 squares on the right side of the original. I knew I had a lot of photos of the same subject, and I wanted to showcase those photos in groupings. My completed pages:
I hope you enjoyed this stop along the Big Top blog hop. The next stop is Marya's blog, A Notebook Novel. Let's hop on over and see how this collection inspired her creativity.
Until next time,
