A Piece of Pi, or a Trillion?

Stampin'Up!, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, Pi day, #peribeal, #papercraftingthreadsHappy Pi Day! In honor of the trillion-digit ratio of a circle’s circumference, I bring you a piece of Pi in the form of this card.

A few facts—did you know the symbol for Pi (π) was first used in 1737 by Swiss mathematician Leonard Euler? And that the value of Pi rounds up to 3.14159? The number is extremely useful when solving geometry problems with circles. The area of any circle equals πr2 where r is the radius or distance across the middle of the circle.

I have no idea what the areas of the circles are on my card, but I know that if I wanted to calculate it out, I could. Sheldon Cooper would say shame on me.

How are you celebrating this March 14? Whether it’s baking your favorite pie, ordering pizza pie, or participating in NASA’s Pi in the Sky challenge, I hope you bring out your inner math nerd today!

I attended Stampin’ Up OnStage in Madison, a gathering of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators where we got to see the new Occasions catalog and stamped with new goodies. I came home with the gorgeous new set, Beautiful You and I paired it with the Stitched Shapes Framelits that are available for the month of November. The set features brushwork art and absolutely fabulous sentiments. A bit of watercolor with the new pencils makes the figure pop. I peeled the back off the White Perfect Accents and applied three of them with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. I thought the sentiment was fitting for the results of the election this week, as well as Veteran’s Day.
