Sunflower Studio – Coming Soon!

Sunflower Studio in Livonia, MI - Coming Soon!

After struggling with a lack of affordable locations to hold crops & workshops I've decided (with a little bit of a nudge and a lot of support from my husband, Rich) to buy a building! This space will not just be for my croppers - it's for others, too.
I hope to rent the space for an affordable price. Affordability is my main goal as well is a functional/comfortable space. I hope to make it as easy as possible for CM Advisors, Kiwi Lane Instructors & others to hold their events at the studio, too. Check in to the Studios page on Facebook for updates and to share your thoughts about what you’d like to see happen at the Studio!

CLS Fall Blog Hop

Welcome to Creative Life Scrapbooking's (CLS) Fall Blog Hop! Bundle up and grab something warm to drink as we celebrate fabulous fall!  

If you’re hopping in order, you’ve arrived from Fran’s blog.  At the end of my post I’ll send you on your way to Noreen’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.) CLS Fall Blog HopToday I’m sharing a fun little pumpkin made using products from Creative Memories and featuring the Pumpkin Spice Paper Pack.  If you search Pinterest you’ll see all sorts of ways to make these, some pretty labor intensive but I think I’ve figured out how to make this rather quickly.  I’m a lazy efficient scrapbooker! Winking smile

To make the pumpkin as shown above, cut 8 strips (I cut them 12” x 1”) from the Pumpkin Spice Paper Pack.  Lay them out as shown below, adhering each strip to the one beneath it. Use the Repositionable Adhesive so you can easily adjust these if needed.  The patterns facing up are the ones I’d like to have showing so this is actually going to be the outside of the pumpkin.

CLS Fall Blog HopOnce you’re happy with the position of the strips add some Repositionable Adhesive to the edges of each strip on the side of the paper that will be on the inside of the pumpkin (I had to flip my strips over before doing this.)

Bring the edges to the center and repeat until all strips are adhered, making a pumpkin.  Make adjustments as needed & don’t worry if they don’t meet up exactly.

Add some leaves to the top of the pumpkin punched with the Maple Leaf Punch and a vine punched with the On the Vine Border Punch.

CLS Fall Blog HopTo make the stem, roll up a piece of brown patterned paper that is about 1” x 3”.  use Repositionable Adhesive, especially on the end.  I put a good bit of the Repositionable Adhesive  on the top of the pumpkin and then pressed the stem onto that. It is stuck down pretty good! I wouldn’t lift the pumpkin by the stem but I don’t think it’s going anywhere!CLS Fall Blog Hop

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope this idea has inspired you and I can’t wait to see your take on it! Please feel free to share what you’ve created in my
