Shape Maker System Inspiration

Do you remember hearing about the CASE method?  C.A.S.E. stood for Copy And Steal Everything! Back in the day CM provided TONS of ideas.  Ideas in catalogs, ideas on product packaging, handouts with ideas (who remembers Crop Talks?)  Those ideas were great because they helped you use the products you bought!  I’m so pleased that the “new” CM is busy cranking out lots of fun ideas to help those of us out who still subscribe to the CASE method. 
With the Shape Maker System being available at such a great price ($25!!) I wanted to share some ideas with you for using it!
Here’s a fun idea shared by the Home Office at CM. 
It’s for a Mother’s Day card but you could easily adapt it to make a page element.
Supplies used: Pretty in Pastel Designer Paper
Shape Maker with 2-inch Circle Cartridge
Paper Trimmer
Tape Runner
Dual-Tip Pen (Black)
Optional:  Downloadable “Happy Mother’s Day”
quote that can be downloaded here.
To create:
  1. Cut two pieces of white patterned paper to measure 5” square.  Flip these over on to your work surface.  Measure and mark at the 3/4” mark along one edge of each piece.image
  2. Using a straight edged, draw a line from each mark to the corner (shown right.)
  3. Use scissors or trimmer to cut along line on each piece.
  4. Apply tape runner close to both diagonal and shorter edges (avoid adding along longest edge) then adhere pieces together grey sides facing each other.
  5. Cut 2 pieces of grey paper to measure 5” x 1 -1/2” and 3” x 4”.  Adhere strip along top edge of the pot base.
  6. To create flowers, punch several circles from various patterns of paper, then cut notches, waves and edges away.  Arrange and adhere flowers across the top of the grey piece. 
  7. Trim and adhere photo.  Insert grey piece and flowers into pot.
  8. Print and cut quote, then adhere to polka-dot paper.  Trim and adhere to card.

Here are some cute Christmas ornament embellishments made by CM Advisor (CMA)  Kelly Hudson, using the Circle Tag from the Shape Maker System & adding a snowflake punch and some glitter glue.

Thanks to CMA Linda Wright for sharing this page with flowers and a ladybug also made with the circle tag cartridge.
