Art Day - Jumbo Scallop Technique

This Sunday a group of "Super Sassy Swappers" will get together to share new tips and techniques. With each new Idea Book we have an Art Day. Consultants on our local teams get together and have a project with a new technique or product to share with each other. We have a fabulous time together. I always come away from art day inspired and ready to create!

My project for this art day is the Jumbo Scallop Technique. I'm not sure if this has been done elsewhere, it just sort of came to me as I was creating last weekend at a retreat in Duluth. Close To My Heart has come out with our own 1¼” circle punch. It will be available starting May 1, 2010, when the new Idea Book goes live!

Jumbo Scallop Technique
1-Using your CTMH 1¼” circle punch, punch out several circles.
2-Slice the circles in half using your paper trimmer.
3-Place the half circles a smidge under the edge of the item you wish to highlight.
For perfect corners, use full circles.

This technique is most useful on scrapbooking projects, but it also looks cute on a card. To create this card, I used the new Cherry-O paper pack, chocolate waxy flax, colonial white brads, an embossing stylus, and the new 1¼” circle punch. The featured stamp set is available exclusively with the new Cherry-O Workshop On The Go. Colors used are Tulip, Sweet Leaf, and Chocolate.

Happy Scrapping!
