Squircles? That is right. I said Squircle. What is a Squircle? It is a photo of something round in the middle of a square surrounding the circle. Here are some examples:
What can you use them for? You can make a sort of photo quilt to commemorate an event such as a wedding or baby birth. Here is one example:
I made this for my daughter's wedding. I included squircles from the things they like to do together like Disney World or Universal. Also their favorite sports teams are include, Bengals, Red Sox, Cleveland. I turned photos of them into squircles too.
Where can you find Squircles?
I searched on flckr. I believe you have to create an account, but it is free. You can search for z squircles for example to find all the photos with Z in them. To save them, I used snip it tool on my computer to copy the image in the square.
I created this my memories v 5 blank template which contains a six by six matrix of squircles.
Here is how mine looks filled in. The squares on the edges were just filled in with Christmas Paper. This is an easy way to feature a lot of photos on a single page. The embellishments come from packages in the My Memories Club. Membership is just 5.99 a month.
I hope this has given you some new scrapbooking ideas.
