Five Beautiful Scrapbook Example Layouts Using Circles!
Circles symbolize lots of different things to us, almost all of them evoke positive thoughts and emotions. Some of what circles symbolize include: wholeness, eternity, love, God, perfection and unity.
Circles are also universally present in design and art through the ages. They are also used as templates and stencils for constructing more complex shapes. So here are five scrapbook example layouts using circle design elements as the basis for each design.
Scrapbook Example Layout Using Circles 1
Scrapbook Example Circle Layout – Clustered Circles

Scrapbook Example Circle Layout – Offset Circle
This layout uses an offset circle as an oversized frame for a rectangular photo. The photo background has been neutralized to emphasize the color of my niece's skin and clothing. The circle frame is offset in the same direction as Charlotte's eyes are gazing toward. Most of the embellishments, as well as the word art have been placed along the bottom of the photo to anchor it to the layout. Some additional elements have been placed around the circle again in the direction of Charlotte's gaze.

Scrapbook Example Circle Layout – Symmetrical
It's almost always best to avoid absolute symmetry when it comes to your layouts, but sometimes putting everything around the center point can work. (Quick Tip: If you have a very symmetrical or centered layout that is just not working out, offset it, or justify it to the right or left. You will be amazed at the difference it makes!). Here there are design elements, (the ribbon tie on the cord as well as the flower cluster at the bottom left) that are not symmetrical but the rest of the elements are all centered around the photo of my mum and niece.

Scrapbook Example Circle Layout – Echoed Photograph
In this layout I have used the same photo of my niece Charlotte twice, with the smaller circle cropped photo focusing on her adorable face. The repetition adds to the cute but also means we have 3 repeated circles elements in the layout. The repetition of both the photo itself and the circles unifies the design and helps it to flow well. Again the offset of the frame (as in example 3 above) is in the same direction as Charlotte's gaze.
