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!

Say “I Do” to Beautiful Scrapbook Borders

My beautiful niece recently married, and I offered (I would’ve begged) to make her wedding album for her! The new Forever Yours Wedding Collection with its elegant, timeless pieces, along with the lovely photos taken, are all I need to create the perfect keepsake of her special day.

Here are a few borders I’ve created to personalise the Forever Yours Fast2Fab Album I’m using. Something I love about making borders to decorate my pages is that they are so versatile: they work well on any style of page, from Fast2Fab to black to white.

Scrapbook Borders Inspired by Japanese Art

These beautiful Japonism Pastel papers and Natural Laser Cut Embellishment products were designed to honour the influence of Japanese art on Western culture and feature both natural themes and subtle graphics in soft hues.

It was fun showing you how to do a few paper folding techniques, and incorporating them into the borders as well.

Create a few of your own borders, and share with us on social media using #creativememories .
