I love this Wintertime Collection by Echo Park that is in The Paper Trail Kit for January! I had so much fun making this layout! Adding a circle around the snowflake with my sewing machine created a really neat effect on this layout. For about 1/2 of the circle I used my hand to move the sewing machine with the dial. Then I couldn't stand it anymore, so I got off my circle. I thought I did a good job fixing it by sewing around it again and evening it up. Punched out circles with a pop dot on the back makes an automatic embellishment. The other thing I did was use the other 1/2 of my chipboard circle from my debut layout. I covered the board in the brown chalkbox ink and then I kind of bent it up to make it look like leather.
