Smarshmallows has a beautifully versatile color palette and lots of fun embellishments including stars, felt circles and leaves, ribbons, frames, painted swirls, buttons, and more. If you like to embellish with ribbons or buttons then you’ll love Smarshmallows, because it has lots of them!
There is also an element pack of Round Labels – A Child’s World that matches this kit and fits in perfectly with all the other circles in the kit!
These are great to use on children’s pages, but I often use them as a base for a cluster of embellishments on any theme page. On my “This Tricycle’s Life” page I’ve used the labels under the felt circles with buttons to create a stacked cluster. Notice that the striped paper in Smarshmallows makes a beautiful plaid and I’ve softlight blended the star pattern into the solid neutral background.
On “Lilies” circles take center stage with circle stamps, circle photos and button flowers! The stitching in Smarshmallows also worked perfectly as journaling lines in this layout.
Casharina has done a beautiful job of showing the girlie side of Smarshmallows and she’s also made great use of the cardboard journaler!
Kylie’s cute page is circle heaven! I love her use of the fun alpha in the kit and the ribbons layered among the elements.
Beckie’s page is a wonderful example of the versatile nature of Smarshmallows! With a few additions from sandbox and summer cottage, it makes an adorable beach page. I love how she’s used the swirls to mimic waves here!
Kim’s fun page makes great use of the visual triangle design principle using three felt circle embellishments. I love how she has highlighted the” winner” photo with the circle stamp and a frame!
