Summer Fun Progressive Scrap Page

How do you turn a stamper into a scrapbooker? Very slowly is the answer! Big spaces to fill is very daunting for a lot of papercrafters - but here's a nice gentle way to ease people into the process. It's a progressive scrap page - first off you make a 6"x6" page and decorate it (incorporating a photo - which I'll eventually add) which really is just a bit bigger and squarer than a normal card......

I used circles and layers and jazzed it up a bit with sponging, embossing folder and Dimensionals. Then I took this 6"x6" page and popped it onto an A4 page and added a few more elements to get this:

I continued the circle theme down the page to link it together and then added two more photo mats. This whole page was then layered up onto a 12"x12" page and ohh my goodness a square card has just turned into a scrapbook page!

The circles continued down the page and off to the right a bit as well, then I added a layered Top Note die for journaling. The So Saffron 12"x12" page was looking a bit bland so I jazzed it up a bit with stamping some circles from the stamp set in the same colour and then sponged all the edges as well. So what do you think of the result?
