Thursday Inspiration - Challenge 5

(Link up your project right HERE)

Welcome back! So glad you could join us. Today we'll share the rest of the Designer's projects for Challenge 5- Circles. Normally we would split these up between Thursday and Friday, but this Friday is the start of our first ever Papercraft Star Blog Hop. Be sure to come back tomorrow and play along, there are lots of paper crafting goodies to be won!

So, on to our wonderful Designer's inspiration for the Circles challenge....


Catherine chose to layer her circles, and used a small flower print to add more circle like images to the layout. She chose to incorporate a scalloped journal sheet that match the patterned paper.


Regan was inspired to make a circle shaped mini album with this weeks challenge. She used old CDs to create the base of the mini album. For embellishments she used buttons, circle punches and bling! She even used a "2 Piece Set" circle tag that came off of an outfit she purchased! For more information and pictures of this project, please visit her blog.


Circles abound on this easel card that Tracy created. The focal point of the card is a stamped image that she layered with Nestabilities die cuts. Even the stamped image has lots of bubbly circles. You can find a close up of the accents she used on the bath tub and bubbles on her blog.

Stephanie A.

This week at Papercraft Star, it's all about circles. Stephanie used a swiss dot background paper on which she added a frame and several circles about friendship.


Circles, Circles, Circles!  Christy made some darling little lollipop flowers motivated by our challenge this week!  She started with a blank canvas that she painted light yellow and went on to finish up with lots if diecuts from her punches and Cricut!  The "grass" was done by cutting thin strips of paper and rolling them to a desired length adding more...CIRCLES!


As soon as she saw the "circles" theme, Suzy knew she had to scrapbook this photo of her husband and his coworkers playing a round of charity golf earlier this summer. Let's just say they were the talk of the tournament LOL! Head over to her blog to read more about how she made this layout.


This week, our challenge is circles. Dawn grasped that guideline and ran with it! Lots of circles fill this page, the background paper also being covered in (you guessed it...) circles as well! She added some embossing and sanding for dimension, and bling to spruce up the vintage look of the page.

Steph D.

Steph D. was inspired by the Basic Grey Granola DP to create this Circle-themed card. She used Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman images, including circular clocks, and a vintage button along with some jute ribbon and string.

Weren't they great! That's LOADS of inspiration all in the same day. So get rollin and create your Circle project. You've got until 12 Noon Eastern time on Saturday to get your project linked up. After that, the voting begins. Be sure to come back and vote for your favorite entry.

Don't forget, tomorrow is the first day of the PCS Blog Hop! Be sure to come back and check out what is happening, you won't want to miss it!
