I bought this template just because I thought it might be helpful...well, it is way more than helpful. Not only do I use this for doodling aspects but, I have used it with my stitching products to make those very cool circle elements which always add fun to lo's.
It is truly so easy to use and realign.
I used this to mark spots where I wanted to place brads and button on my lo's as well.

This template is so much fun, and the possibilities are endless, just in one day I did a few 12x12 pre-made pages with it and learned you can use the bazzill stitching tool, just have to center it in the hole, but anyway you can make anysize circle stitching w/it - or eyelets - and the sizzix original circle fits just right in the middle - this template cuts down so much time/work - great!
I have 7 different Crafter's Workshop templates and love them all. This one, Dots All Around, has to be my favorite, though! It is the first one I bought and the one I (and my scrapping friends!) use the most. Love it for many different looks: half-circles, full circles, setting brads or eyelets, any project where you want to add movement to your page, this is a go-to tool.

I love trying out new techniques. And using design templates was another fun way of moving my scrapbooking to a new level. What I love about the circle template is that it allows me to make my own paper pattern or simply to embellish a scrapbook page or even a photograph. I am looking forward to trying other templates to enhance and enrich my work and the results on my page.
I got this template a few days ago and I guess this is the greatest tool ! Love the circle stuff on layouts, but never done it much before, because I thouhgt it took too long and didn't look good enough - but with this template it's the easiest thing to do! And the possibilities on how to use it is endless i guess!

Love this too...in fact I am loving all of these wonderul templates.....really makes me see unlimited possibilities...Just what I needed to get out of my slump!!!! Great idea are brewing in the creative side of my brain. Love It!!!! Buy this and watch the Tutorial......it is inspiring.
The Crafter's Workshop template -Dots All Around is amazing for dot placement on a layout. I like the fact that you can use the guidelines to center on the page or an edge. Really helps get your "bling" in the right place without having to move the rinestones all the time.
This is a cool template! I used it yesterday to place Stickles dots on a clear acrylic album and they turned out perfectly! I like that it's semi clear, which will help with placement and the hash marks will help too. I can't wait to try it with brads.
Love them, love them, Love them. Crafters Workshop Rocks!!
All the guessing and pre-measuring is over! Now I just create!!
Easy to use, storage is a breeze in paper file folders.
One of my first and not my last!
I used this template at a Creating Keepsakes Charlotte, NC class. I happened to have my Big Bite with me which made the class easy for me. I used the template and made pencil marks then the Big Bite to punch the wholes. We tied short lengths of ribbon through every two holes. What a great look! I've since used it to glue dot buttons, attached paper flowers (think Hawaiian Cruise), and place brads. I highly recommend this template to jazz up your scrapbook pages!
These template are a great doodling tool. My one complaint is that they are a little flimsy and catch one each when stored together. I placed cardstock in between them and that solved the problem. All in all these are a nice product. This is possibly the most versitile template they have so far. You can make the dots, then put eyelets or brads over them making it easy to space them. Circles are great for any occasion.
I have both this template and a smaller version and use them all the time. Sometimes you just don't want heavy embellishments on your page or card...guess what, a dotted circle works to make it look jazzed up without adding bulk!
I have used this template with stickles, flocking, and pens, and dew drops - it works with everything!
