Yesterday I had my first post on the American Crafts blog. I made a layout and a card using the Daydreams collection which I love because of it's bright and fun summery colours. I was afraid to start scrapping my AC products and felt a little overwhelmed by them. So I just decided to look through the catalogue. And finally I found my inspiration. The cover of the catalogue is so pretty with clusters of circles and I wanted to do the same. Lots of circles in clusters!
The card was a lot easier. So simple when you've got lovely stickers to work with!

A lot of people asked me how I made those embossed circles. It's so easy! With a compass draw a circle on you page. Place an embossing folder underneath and rub over the circle with your bone folder. And voilà! You can use any kinds of shapes. Simple and I find it adds so much texture to a layout!
Pour faire les cercles embossés rien de plus simple! Dessinez un circle sur votre page. Prenez une plaque à embosser et placez le en dessous du circle. Passez dessus avec un plioir et voilà, le tour est joué.
