Happy Pi Day, or as I like to call it Pie Day! It’s Katrina, aka katrinahunt13, back after a short absence to share a hybrid layout with you today. When I saw that 3.14 or Pi Day was open for a blog post, I jumped on it. I knew exactly what I wanted to do and it DIDN’T have to do with math!
Pie charts are fun elements to incorporate into your scrapbooking pages, whether digital or hybrid. For my layout today I used a template from FiddleDeeDee Designs called Piece of the Pie (Dressed Up). This is a great place to start with pie charts if you aren’t used to working with them. There are so many things you can do, but I honestly kept my pie chart pretty darn simple!
I print my papers thru Photoshop on my wide format Epson printer. This also allows me to resize the original files down to 6×6 square and then print four prints on one page in a smaller scale. Even if you don’t have a wide format printer, you could do two 5×5 squares stacked on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper and get the same effect. I love the smaller scales for details such as the pic chart.
The kit I used is from Mommyish Designs (shhh..don’t tell her, she is one of my favorites!) and it’s called You Are Fierce. I knew I wanted to use this kit to document how far Ella has come since she ruptured a disc in her back a year ago. We thought she wouldn’t walk, and now she “drunk” walks all over the house. Still no stairs and we are really careful with her, but this kit fit her attitude and drive.
If you have ever wanted to try print and cut with your Silhouette, I can say everything I have done from the TLP store has print and cut like a dream! I hope to have a screen capture video soon of printing and cutting for you. Here I just layered elements together that I had cut out and then used foam adhesive to give them dimension. You can also fold and crimp edges to do that also. Who says you need chipboard?! LOL
Like I said, I went easy on the pie chart here, but you can add so many details, embellishments, etc to the sections, what could be more fun?! So, find some pie charts and incorporate them into your layouts. Not as fun as eating pie, but a lot more fun than math!!! Be sure to share your projects in the gallery, the Pollys would love to see and comment on them.
