Just One Thing: Splash Decorative Edge Cardstock

This month's Flavors of the Month kit includes a round decorative edge piece of cardstock from Little Yellow Bicycle's Splash collection.  Today, I thought I'd focus on the various ways that the design team incorporated this fun piece of paper into their layouts.

Brenda chose to add the entire circle to her layout, even letting the top of it hang off the page a bit.  She stitched around its edge and added a variety of buttons to some of the scallops for extra dimension.

Jenny and Melanie chose to cut the circle in half.  What a great way to stretch your supplies!  The half circle looks great placed vertically, as in Jenny's layout, or horizontally, as in Melanie's layout, and provides a great place for the title.

I used the circle to bridge the gap between the left and right sides of my recipe card layout.  This one sheet of paper has a lot of visual impact on the design.

So, how are you planning to use the Little Yellow Bicycle Splash Decorative Edge Cardstock on your layout?
