Circles Blog Hop

  • Circles are everywhere, everyday in our life. The earth is a circle itself. Okay, a sphere but close enough. Circles are in our drawings, paintings and all art and this blog hop celebrates the beauty of 360 degrees. Please join our crafters as they show the art of circles.

    Our hostess is Jearise of Lorby's World ( and make sure you start at her blog because she has a special give away going on and all the details are on her blog.

    Please leave comments along the way to show your support for these wonderful crafters and all the hard work they have done putting this hop of circles together.

    I am offering candy of my own today! I have just started selling some fun embellishments and a few other supplies through a page on Facebook, Miriam's Crafting Supplies! Head on over, like my page and leave a comment saying you are coming over from the hop and you will be entered to win 6 sets of your choice of color and size of circular (!) pearls.

    A fad went through the stamping world perhaps two or so months ago to make what are referred to as a triple stamp card. I used this idea to inspire my card for the hop today. I cut a circle card, made by welding two 6 1/4" circles with SCAL. I then cut out two more circles from the background color in 4 1/4" and 2 1/4". Then, I took a patterned wallpaper sample and cut out three concentric circles at 6", 4" and 2".  In order to add more circles, I used pearls (available in my FB store Miriam's Crafting Supplies) in the larger 7 and 10mm sizes. In the middle of the is one 9mm sunflower pearl. The sentiment is from TPC Studios Hot Air Balloon Collage set and is curved to fit a banner, so it worked very well for this project. I added some silk flowers and cut some leaves out using an svg (they were the roundest leaves I could find). I found the svg file

    Thank you for hopping today and please continue on to Lissa's blog.
