Today I am sharing a project using the Scor-Buddy and Scor-Tape from Scor-Pal as well as 
lots of fab Clearsnap goodies.


We recently went to the Ringling Bros Barnum & Bailey Circus with our kids and the nephews. We had a blast!!

I wanted this layout to look like a circus tent, fun and festive with banners, flowers, and more. I used the Scor-Buddy for make the pleats in the “tent”.

First I started scoring an 7×12 piece of Cardstock every 1/2″ or so, straight on.


Then I twisted the paper slightly off-line and scored again, and then tilted slightly more, 
and scored again to create a  set of flared diagonally lines. 


I then accordion folded the cardstock along the score lines and adhered it to the layout using Scor-Tape.



Next I sprayed some canvas flowers that I diecut with Smooch Spritz in Gold Glow and Vanilla Shimmer.

 


This gave them a metallic look, to compliment the shine of the diecut Grant Studios glitter alphas and label I used.

I applied a Funky Forest Molding Mat to the Memory Essential Jumbo Get Rollin Tool to make a custom wheel style stamp. Even though this Molding Mat has trees on it, it is perfect for making pennants for a banner! First, I peeled the protective cover from the Get Rollin Tool: 


Roll the Get Rollin Tool along the back of the Molding Mat to apply it to the wheel.



I inked up with stamp with Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink in Amber Clay and rolled it on some coordinating Grant Studios paper.

 


I then trimmed the “pennants” from the paper, reserving the pennant shaped scraps to use for my banner as well.

 

I added photos, a handcut top to the big top tent, and the string for the banner to finish 
off the look.
