The Carta Bella Paper Circus collection is the perfect collection to scrapbook the “sideshow acts” (a.k.a. the silly family members) in your life!
Not sure what to title your layout? Look to your supplies for inspiration! For this page, I used one of the clever phrases from the Chipboard Accents as inspiration for my title.

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, JOIN THE CIRCUS
I used three horizontal rows for the structure of this page. In between each row, I placed a strip of tickets trimmed from the Admission Tickets paper. To make each ticket border appear like a REAL strip of tickets, I snipped the ends with mini pinking shears and used a hole punch clip out each of the notches in between the individual tickets.
I cut out a couple of cards from the Three Ring Circus paper to place to the left of my title. The Lion Tamer looks like he is shouting commands to the lion on the top row … and the harlequin pattern repeats the bold diamond pattern of the Admission Tickets paper at the bottom of the page.
I knew right away that I wanted to incorporate the large “circus” chipboard banner piece into the title. Combined with the two sets of letter stickers, this title becomes a major decorative element in this page design.
The circus carriage corners the main photo perfectly and draws your eye in towards the title and journaling on the other side of the page.
Do you have some silly shots of your circus crew that would be perfect for scrapping with the Carta Bella Paper Circus collection? I’m sure you do!
