Life of Pie | Page Drafts is a release from our old blog back in September 2014. It was a popular set of sketch templates so we thought why not release them in the shop this month. Each sketch includes Pie Charts as the main design element. I love how pie charts lend themselves to creating some fun and whimsical pages. They are great for segmenting your day into time components and are also a great way to use up all those scrap papers in your stash, gotta love that!

We also thought this month we'd bring back our Tips and Tricks segment to help you reel in that missing mojo even more, so grab a cuppa and read on for some great tips and of course some awesome CT inspiration to get you swooning!
This months tips were inspired by the humble, pie chart.  Here is a basic wiki definition;
'Charts of course are a type of graph that are portioned into sectors that each represent a portion of the whole picture, but they are also really cool graphic elements. Each sector can be easily showcased with a photo, texture or paper making for some fun and variable combinations.'
Tip 1: When sectioning a circle into a pie think about how many sectors you will need, then circle punch that many from varying papers. Once that is done stack them and carefully cut like you are slicing a piece of pie, but cut some thicker pieces, this is the one time when its okay to be a bit greedy! You will have several pieces all forming different pies and as quick as counting 1, 2, 3.

Tip 2: Follow the same process but add a photo into the sandwich. You'll be amazed by what a fantastic and unique way it is to show off  all those happy snaps you have in your cache.

Tip 3: Have you noticed that charts have information typed within each sector. The data you share can be part of your journaling. You could try adding a wordart or a letter and number overlayed on each section. Alternatively you could add a list like a map legend as a different way to journal and document your story.

Tip 4: Nine times out of ten your photo tells the story so journaling is not always needed as an integral part of your design. However using #hashtags is a fun way to capture in one simple word or phrase, a feeling or description of the event you are scrapping and hey, lets face it, very on trend!
If you do decide to create some projects using our designs don't forget to link us up with your amazing creations either by commenting below or posting your artworks on our FB FAN PAGE so we can swoon and most importantly leave you some lovin'!

Happy Scrapping! Hope you enjoy the sketches and remember to,
Let your imagination do the rest.
