#1 - As a Background:
6ichthusfish uses a scalloped circle to fill the entire background. What a great way to change things up when so many elements are rectangular!
#2 - As a Photo Frame
Jackie's Scrapbook Layouts. I love how she continues the leaf motif by choosing a vine cutout for the frame.
#3 - As a Journal Space
Steph Ackerman uses a curved cut to provide a journal space on her teen boy layout. If you have lots to say, make a big cut; if just a few works, the label can be smaller.
#4 - As a Decorative Border
I've used Elegant Edges for borders and backgrounds before, but now I'm eager to branch out and try my hand at using it for journaling elements. Any of these ideas caught your attention? Let us know how you might use a curvy or scalloped shape on your next layout in the comments section.
Have a happy, scrappy weekend,
