At SHOTBOX, Black Friday starts today! With the holiday's right around the corner, they are offering one of the best deals of the year to grab a SHOTBOX for yourself, a friend, or a loved one. From now until Monday, you can take $50 off of both the SHOTBOX Deluxe bundle (great for taking pictures of online shops) and the SHOTBOX Solo Box (great for taking top down pictures of documents and art). Click here to start shopping and use the code HOLIDAY50 to get your discount.

The SHOTBOX is a portable, collapsible, photography light box that easily fits on your kitchen or office table providing excellent photography lighting with built in LED light strips. The SHOTBOX is engineered with holes in the top of the light box to enable users to take “top down” pictures of family photos, journals, and scrapbooks, thereby cutting the amount of time required to digitize these items with a scanner. It is perfect for those interested in Family History.

I LOVE my Shotbox – it’s a wonderful tool that helps you take easy, professional looking photos like those shown below (not my photos – I borrowed them from the Shotbox blog.)

Halloween Blog Hop

Hello & Welcome!!

You have reached the 3rd stop on the
CM Bloggers’ Halloween Blog Hop.  
Some of my sister
CM Advisors and I are sharing ideas and inspiration for your Halloween layouts and projects.  If you’re hopping in order, you’ve arrived from Karyn’s blog.  At the end of my post I’ll send you on your way to Julie’s blog.   Be sure to visit each stop – there are lots of  wonderful ideas being shared!  (More info, including the complete list of Blog Hop stops, is at the bottom of this post.)

I was inspired by the vintage look of the Bats in the Belfry Collection by Creative Memories to create these embellishments.

CM Halloween Blog Hop 
Have you tried CM’s new Repositionable Tape Runner Refill?  It was very handy when making these items.  The refill fits in the regular CM Tape Runner case! CM Halloween Blog HopThis adhesive comes out in a pattern of tiny dots, so it’s really good for small, intricate pieces and because it’s repositionable it’s super easy to make adjustments to your design.  After applying any excess adhesive rubs right off.   The adhesive becomes more tacky over time but never becomes permanent.   CM Halloween Blog Hop

For the base of each decoration you’ll need:

Snip just the bottom of each scallop of the 12” border so you can curve it around the circle.CM Halloween Blog Hop
Using the Repositionable Tape Runner – place adhesive on the lower, pointy part (the part you snipped) of the front side of the lace scallop border and on the edge of the back of your circle.

with the wrong side of the paper facing you (if using double sided paper), place the two ends of the border together on the circle and loosely place the rest of your border around the circle, adjusting & repositioning when needed.   Once you have the border in place, smoosh it down to flatten & adhere.  CM Halloween Blog Hop
Flip the base over and add layers to your design using items from the Bats in the Belfry collection. Everything coordinates so it’s really hard to go wrong!  Add circles that are cut with the Custom Cutting System, and punched with the Shape Maker System from the paper pack, add
stickers & embellishments using Foam Squares to add a bit of dimension.CM Halloween Blog Hop

The Scalloped Circle shown below was punched using the CM Shape Maker System and the 2” Scalloped Circle  punch from Fun Stampers Journey.  FSJ offers punches that work with CMs Shape Maker System!

I hope these have inspired you! If can’t wait to see your version of this design…please feel free to share what you’ve created in my Lisa’s Workshop Facebook group.

World Card Making Day–October 1, 2016!

World Cardmaking Day 2016 - Lisa's Workshop

According to DaysOfTheYear.com: “World Card Making Day reminds us that the best gifts come from the heart, and the hands and vision of the people we love, so get out there and try making a card of your own!

World Cardmaking Day 2016 - Lisa's Workshop
This card uses products from my 3 favorite paper crafting companies – Creative Memories, Kiwi Lane and Fun Stampers Journey.  I love these companies’ products so much that I’ve teamed up with them as a CM Advisor, KL Instructor and FSJ Coach!  Each company has fantastic products and to celebrate Richie’s 15th birthday and World Card Making Day I made this card with products from all 3 companies.

Capture
When I saw the fun Level Up stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey I knew it would be perfect for my favorite gamers!

World Cardmaking Day 2016 - Lisa's Workshop
The background paper is from the new Creative Memories
Denim Blues Paper Pack and the “15” is from the CM Denim Blues ABC/123 Stickers Pack.
I used the Delight Template from Kiwi Lane to create the zig zag shape on paper from the KL Live Life Paper Kit.

UPDATE REGARDING AVAILABILITY OF CM PUNCHES & BORDER MAKER CARTRIDGES!

new CM Lace Scallop Punch - Lisa's Workshop
(see below for more new products from CM – available today on my CM site!)

For future planning, it may help to know that with Punches, CMs goal is to bring in enough inventory to last 4-6 months, so they are not considered core line.  Sometimes this doesn't happen and items sell out earlier than expected (like we recently saw with the Deco Arcs punch).

The Border Maker System is core; Cartridges are not, so as CM continues to bring new ones in, CM will plan to discontinue those that have been around a while and/or have slowed in sales. CM is hoping that by keeping the line at a manageable size this will ensure a healthy, manageable business for the Home Office, Advisors & customers. Bottom line: If you *need* it - get it asap.

New Natural Elegance CollectionCM Natural Elegance Collection - Lisa's Workshop

These pages, papers and embellishments were designed with delicate shapes and shades inspired by natural textures, so engagement, shower and wedding photos of any palette will be the feature against their elegant backdrop.

If you love paper crafting or card making, the neutrality of these stylish papers, embellishments and stickers will be a must-have for a variety of projects. Also, think beyond wedding: Natural Elegance will enhance flower and landscape photos, birthday, baby, heritage, black and whites and more!

CM Natural Elegance Collection - Lisa's Workshop

The Natural Elegance Collection includes:
*12x12 Fast2Fab Album (White foil on Warm Grey bookcloth).
*12x12 Album Cover (sold without pages)
*12x12 Fast2Fab Refill Pages
*12x12 Paper Pack
*Slide-In Pack
*Stickers (3/pk)
*Embellishments

You can find them in the “What’s New” section of my CM Advisor site.
