Welcome to the first official CM Bordermania Blog Hop! To help us all discover fun, new ways of using the Original Border Maker System, we’ve enlisted the help of some very talented and creative CM Advisors who have joined in the fun to help! Simply click through the links provided within each blog post and you’ll love what you discover along the way.
Before we send you on your way, we thought we’d share some fun ideas, too! First up is a simple way to dress up a section of your page with a fancy edge. Create a fun area to frame up your photos by layering coordinating papers, then cut a strip of paper to run along one edge of that area. Punch along one edge of strip. Weave a 5/8″ strip of colored paper through the slots and adhere to page to finish. We also hand-trimmed artwork from a Slide-In Pack to finish the design. Note: Products used in this page were the Be Bold & Flourish Paper Pack and Be Bold & Flourish Slide-In Pack.
Next up is a super fun, creative way to use the Picket Fence Border Maker Cartridge (included with the Original Border Maker System) that came to us from CM Advisor Pam Giganti’s Customer Becky Keyser. Simply cut a Plain Page in half (vertically), then punch a border along the entire cut edge. Trim a strip of red paper to measure 5/8″ wide, then weave through slots. Decorate both sides of the page, then slice a Page Protector in half and slip it over the page to finish. This idea is perfect to showcase things like brochures, one or two extra photos that don’t warrant an entire, full page, etc. So fun! Note: Products used in this page were the Look on the Bright Side Paper Pack and Look on the Bright Side Slide-In Pack.
