Happy Scrappy Wednesday, everyone!! Today, I want to take about PIE! Well…. Pie charts, anyway!
I was inspired by a project I saw on Pinterest and wanted to try using a Pie Chart in place of my journaling on a layout. So, I put that idea together along with the fun new Good Dog collection from Imaginisce and a great photo of my sweet Duffy.
First, I started with a circle from regular office paper that was roughly 4″ in diameter. Then, I folded it in half, and then in half again, and again (etc.) to create sections. Using these sections, I could make an accurate guess of the percentages that I wanted to use. Being slightly anal-retentive, my pie chart mus be accurate! 😉
Then, using my pencil, I divided up my circle into the sections that I wanted to use for my layout.
Then, I cut my “pie pieces” apart so that I could trace them onto the paper that I wanted to use.
Then, I simply traced the pieces onto patterned paper, cut them out and mounted them on a circle that is slightly bigger than my template that I started with.
Finally, I just labeled the sections and added it to my layout. Isn’t it cute?!
Here’s the final layout! I love this line from Imaginisce and how the colors work with Kraft paper! The KI Memories Puffies are a fun addition that coordinate really well, too!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope that you are inspired to use a pie chart for your journaling on a layout. We’d love to see your take on this idea– share it on our Facebook page so we can see!
