Cooking with Shapes challenge for Soul Scrappers (includes Tutorial)

Here I go with my second Design Team challenge at Soul Scrappers.

I have chosen to do Cooking with Shapes. We all use shapes every time we create. I have chosen to focus us using a lot of them in one page.

Here's the criteria:

S -  Swirl
H - Half (I'm thinking half a shape, maybe an artisan paper or die-cut)
A - Arch or Arc (your choice)
P - Pie chart
E - Embellished shape of your choice
S - Shapes (I have used lots of scallops, some stars, swirl as required, zig zag and squares)

I started with a Creative Memories quick album page for School. It already had the yellow background with lots of circles, a scallop edge, a rectangle with curved edges and a zig zag pattern and a swirl. A great start. Then I cut a blue artisan paper with scalloped edge and added it to the left of the page. I laid out my photos and added the scallop sticker to the left hand side, then stuck down my photos.

Next I made my pie chart with my Creative Cutting circle system from Creative Memories. I also used a die-cut from the CM School quick cut, this is my arc shape which also has circles on it. I added some AC thickers with Swan. I added my title and a star sticker. I also added a Crate Paper Chipboard piece that had a star as well.

Lastly, came my journalling. This was a pretty quick page as part of the work was done for me. The pie chart took the most time with the measuring and cutting. Another School page for Mark's album completed.

I hope you can join me in this challenge. Just head over to here to join in.

P.S. Don't forget the challenges at Archiscraps and From screen 2 scrap. They both only have two entries so far. We'd love to see some more. Also, your chance to win a prize is very high.
