Countryside Comfort Scrapbooking Borders

Moving into a new home in a new city a few weeks ago, I was really excited, but I felt a bit out of my element, a little anxious. Stacks of boxes from floor to ceiling, furniture that didn’t fit the same way it did in our last home…it was overwhelming.

But little by little, one box at a time, one room at a time, our new house is taking shape. I’ve been appreciating the cosy nooks I’ve discovered, the way a framed picture looks in just the right spot…it feels like home. And my anxiousness is giving way to contentment.

Using Go! Fight! Win! For Dancing Photos

For those of you who have boys or girls who are into competitive sports, the new Go! Fight! Win! collection is a gold mine for all your sporting adventures.

But! If you’re like me, with children who love their dancing (or gymnastics, physie, acrobatics or other non-sport physical activity), you’re probably thinking how can I jazz up my Go! Fight! Win! pages to suit my photos?

The pretty, lace border technique we show you in today’s blog post should do the trick!

Simple Borders Using Dancing Daisies!

One of my favourite things to do when Creative Memories launches a new Border Maker Cartridge is to punch out a whole pile of the new border and just play! I like to see how it can be layered, stacked, positioned on a page, etc. I just love spending some time being creative! I also love seeing which other Border Maker Cartridges coordinate nicely with it.

Today I want to share with you what came out of my playing and experimenting with the new Dancing Daisies Border Maker Cartridge. I chose to punch a pile of white border strips as a starting point and then used the Mix and Match Paper Pack and Embellishments to complete some borders.

Love Mix & Match Border

Love is…..Love.

I love to drink my coffee first thing in the morning.  I love my son’s humour.  I love spending my spare time scrapbooking.  I love meatballs and mashed potatoes.  I love smelling the scent of ocean air.  We can LOVE just about anything.

However, what I really LOVE about this scrapbooking border is that I was able to use the Jumbo Jet Border Maker Cartridge in a very non-traditional way.  In fact, I bet when you look at this border, you didn’t even know the Jumbo Jet cartridge was used.  And, better yet—you can use this on just about any layout about many forms of LOVE!
