String Circles Showcase by Lauren Tomecek

I loved the original string circles when Scrapmatts first brought them out. Then Sofie and Andrew made them better by bring out new designs with dots, stars or arrows on the circles. Last month they expanded the range again to release a pack with larger sized circles! I fell in love and knew I had to play with them right away.

My circle for this layout looks a bit more like an oval, because I actually chopped it in half to open up that inside area a bit more. It doesn't go all the way around under the photos or the flower cluster. I love cutting up my chipboard to make it last that little bit longer or get it to suit my layout better. I've done the same thing with the leaves and the diamond background pieces. 

My second layout is actually the one I created first, so it used the largest sized string circle and I haven't cut this one. I had a lot of fun creating that background circle with Gelatos but it did warp the page a fair bit. Some chipboard butterflies made the perfect scatter embellishments.

Don't forget, you can share your string circle creations with us on the Ning Gallery or Facebook page.


  1. I love those circles too.. these both look wonderful..

  2. Me three - loving the circles I mean, I've used one on my next project. Love your work Lauren. Great MM and scattered embellies. Especially love the green tones on the top layout.
