This month's Crafty Template collection has a circus and animal theme with some really cute designs for use in card-making or other projects.
I've just made cards, but some of these would work brilliantly on scrapbook pages, or would look fab on the cover of a notebook.
My favourite of this months DT selection was the clown and I made him into a shaped card
I've used papers from the fab Crafty Goodies Kit for this month - you can buy the goodies and the templates, and find lots of useful info HERE
I used a big brad in the centre of the bow so that it will spin around with the flick of a finger.
Apart from the papers I used:
black Bazzill for the hat, adding some black Stickes to the brim
some black pen swirls for his hair, and orange Stickles on his eyebrows. I gave his nose a nice thick layer of Glossy Accents
I love this elephant template too - seemed the perfect one to use for another new baby card.
I converted him to a Robo Template, then cut the elephant shape in card and in paper. I also cut along the ear shape in the paper layer. I used a scrap of paper between the two layers to cover the gap when the ear is standing out from the main section.

For the big top card I started by cutting a small aperture in the front of my card to match the opening of the tent. Once I'd cut all the other bits and added them to the card I used my Robo to cut a tiny version of the Sea Lion template - I added this to the inside of the card making sure he could be seen through the aperture. I just drew the ball with a glitter ink pen and added a blob of Glossy Accents on top.
Here's the sea lion on the inside of the card
Papers are all from the Goodies Kit, Sea Lion is black Bazzill
