Who doesn’t love denim? Your go-to when it’s time to kick back might just be your favorite pair of jeans. We love denim because it works with anything, can be dressed up or down and it’s super comfy.

I loved the borders! But I would like to see more projects that use just a couple of products so i can sell make-it-take-it kits at my crops. To make these borders, my customers would need to buy $97 worth of paper and embellishments! I have some making cards tonight–the project from the web site shows 10 delightful cards with two products. Thanks! Keep up the good work!
isn’t it SCRAP booking? why not use up scraps to make these beautiful borders..no need to spend all that money in my opinion.I could be wrong..
Does anyone still do national scrapbook day? I live in Keller, Fort Worth area Texas.
I agree with Jane Thomasma, use a couple of products from one product line, most scrapbookers have the ability to improvise and adapt to use what they have, not to spend $97.
