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 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!
