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.
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! This 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.
For the base of each decoration you’ll need:
- One 12” border made using the Border Maker System and the Lace Scallop Cartridge
- One circle cut using the Custom Cutting System and the Circle Patterns. Cut one 3IR (check out this post for info regarding labeling your CCS).
Snip just the bottom of each scallop of the 12” border so you can curve it around the circle.
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.
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.
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! Read more in this earlier blog post.
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.
Thanks for stopping by! I will now send you on your way to the next stop in the CM Bloggers Halloween Hop - Julie’s blog.
