A Man’s Best Friend: Paw Print Scrapbook Border

I did not grow up with any pets. Well, a parakeet. Does that count?

Unfortunately, I grew up with asthma and allergies, which meant no extra dander in the house. It made me sad to not be able to even pet the neighbor’s dogs or cats.  I had no idea what I was missing out on until I outgrew the allergies and asthma in my adult years.

Using Calendar Grid Scrapbook Pages to Record Historic Events

I like to think of my scrapbooks as more than just a collection of photos that highlight our family events but rather as my own personal diary that tells the story of my life.   So I like to include mention of significant local and world events in my albums along with commentary of how the events impacted me and my family at the time.  This expands my role from memory keeper to history keeper.  Essentially my albums have become a snap shot of history in the making.

Argyle Border Punch Ideas

Bold and geometric, the Argyle punch is fun to use on all kinds of page layouts. I’ve paired it with the versatile Denim Blues collection in each of the border ideas below; and added a theme with several of my favourite product collections. Try them as is or substitute with products you have on hand. Borders like these match up well on predesigned Fast2Fab as well as blank pages.
