Circle Cutter

Circles Are Our Friends!

Hi! I'm new design team member Angela Fehr and I'm so excited to be a member of the Just Imagine/Kreaxions team! A little about me, first off: I'm 34 years old, mom of three cute kids, ages 8, 6 and 4, married thirteen years, and my husband and I live in northern British Columbia, Canada. I've been an artist my entire life, started stamping in 1994, and I got obsessed with scrapbooking and papercrafting in 2006 just before my son was born. We just got home from a road trip that covered seven western states and if you've never attempted road tripping with three kids and a minivan, let me tell you, it is totally worth it! We had a wonderful time!

While this is my first blog post for Just Imagine, I am unfortunately still waiting on Canada Post for my first shipment of Kreaxions products. I just know they'll show up in the mail tomorrow, but in the meantime, I thought I'd share a few ideas for the simple-to-use, space-saving Kreaxions Circle Cutter. Circles are my friends, and they can be yours too when you have a tool that helps you cut them in a jiffy!

Circles can add visual interest to a scrapbook page. DRAW layout

Here I cut circles in three sizes to round out this simple page featuring my daughter's art work. Try making your own journaling blocks using cut circles – for extra effect you could even write your journaling in a spiral!

Using your circle cutter, you can also make windows in cards, like the card above. I first stamped the inside flower on the card front, then sized my circle to cut out the stamped image. After the window was cut, I stamped the flower again, this time on the inside of the card. You could even cut several windows in your card – wouldn't three in a row on a horizontal card be super cute?

Some more ideas for incorporating circles into your projects:

  • layered, crumpled circles for flower embellishments – anchor with a brad in the center
  • circles as bubbles, balloons, wheels
  • circles as scallops – see Wendy's post for a great tutorial on using the circle cutter to make scalloped borders
  • cut a large circle and then a smaller circle inside to make rings
  • rolled paper roses
  • layer different colored circles for a bulls-eye effect
  • create shaped cards by cutting through 2 layers of card stock, leaving a bit of the fold uncut.
  • cut large circles to use as a base for a scrapbook page or banner

I hope you have been inspired to use your circle cutter in new ways today!
