Seeing Spots

I have been seeing spots every where! (And no, not just from my low blood sugar). Spots are so fun - when they are on paper or sheets! Here is a 6x6 page that will become a 12x12 page soon.
I used a Pink Pirouette base, Very Vanilla for the mat, Kiwi Kiss, Very Vanilla, and Elegant Eggplant for the circles. To create the circles, I used various Stampin' Up! circle punches. I also used a piece of Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon. Yummy stuff!

To make the circles with the centers punched out, I first punched the smaller circle into the card stock, and then used the larger punch for the larger circle. Clear as mud? If you go the other way... punch the large circle, then the small circle - you will have a hard time getting the card stock to come out clean or to come out of your punch at all.
Now, that being said... Stampin' Up! is now offering Circle Scissors and glass mat so you can create circles up to 6". You can do the same effect with the larger circles as I have done here with the new Circle Scissors. Or you can stock up on all the yummy new papers and stamps and get the Circle Scissors later - now that you know how to get a fun spot look!

Very cool page! I may steal this idea for a customer who wants me to demo a scrapbook page at her workshop next month. How do you make it a 12x12 page??

Very fun! That Kiwi/Vanilla satin ribbon is just the best, isn't it? It's almost hard for me to use it...it's too beautiful! :)
