Sunflower Inspired Borders

Have you seen the new CM Pumpkin Spice Collection?  The printed paper pack has one of the prettiest sunflower prints!  It inspired me to create these borders using the Sunshine Border Maker Cartridge.

Sunflower Borders - Lisa's WorkshopAll printed papers shown are from the Pumpkin Spice paper pack. To help everything stand out a bit I inked the edges (with distress ink and a dauber from Kiwi Lane) and added a little detail with a fine tipped pen. I used my trusty (and retired) CM Shape Maker for the circles and FSJ Scalloped Circle Punch w/the CM (retired) Shape maker System. I punched the Sunshine shapes out of a piece of brown printed paper and filled the center of the sunflowers with the "leftovers" - the Repositionable Tape Runner Refill came in very handy w/this border!

Sunflower Borders - Lisa's WorkshopSimilar process as the border above but I used a border punched from the On the Vine Border Punch as a background.

Sunflower Borders - Lisa's WorkshopThis Bronze Shimmer Cardstock is so much nicer in person! It's a nice weight and punched very easily.

Gather Together Collection

Did you join in on the fun during Creative Life Scrapbooking PJ Party last night?  If not, no worries!  The posts are on our FB page and you can access them when it’s convenient.  The PJ Party featured ideas using the Gather Together collection from Creative Memories.

I think CM knocked this one out of the park!  The Gather Collection is fun & flowery but not too feminine, making it very versatile! The patterned papers, embellishments and mats have a fall theme and I think this collection was perfect for these photos! 

Gather Together by Lisa's WorkshopLots of hexagons cut with the CM Custom Cutting System! They made a nice background for one of my favorite photos. I fussy cut out those leaves that are tucked behind the photo and in the embellishment cluster at the bottom of the page, but it was easy - not fussy at all!Gather Together by Lisa's WorkshopHexagon Sizes Shown: From the orange paper I cut a hexagon using the outside of the pattern with the Blue Blade. I then trimmed this hexagon down using the Red Blade & outside of the pattern but flipped the paper over to the dark floral pattern. The grey hollow hexagon was also cut using the outside of the hex pattern & first the Blue Blade then the Green Blade. Cuts made inside the hex pattern were made for the orange hexagon using the Green Blade and the green hexagon using the Blue Blade.

Gather Together by Lisa's WorkshopSince the left side layout was a little busy I wanted to keep this side a little more simple. Using mats from the Variety Mat Pack under the photos helped to make this page come together in a snap!Gather Together by Lisa's WorkshopTucked a maple leaf behind one of the foil embellishments to help tie it together with the rest of the layout. Gather Together by Lisa's WorkshopThe yellow & green leaves are cut from one of the Gather Together patterned papers. The grey leaf is punched with the Maple Leaf Punch and the other 2 are from the embellishment pack.
