Virtual Holiday Crop: Challenge 3-Borders

This day is just flying by!

So much of North America is experiencing some beautiful weather this weekend!  Here in Minnesota it is deer hunting weekend, which mean many of us ladies are enjoying a nice quiet “girls weekend”!

Let’s talk about borders!  Borders are simple, adorable, and functional.  They also add color, and design to any simple page layout.

Challenge 3:  Holiday Borders

Create a holiday border or two to be added to your holiday scrapbook pages after the holidays have passed!  When you have them completed, take a photo and add the image to our Facebook Event Page before 3pm CST to be eligible for the prize. Use hashtag #CMVirtualHolidayCrop

  1. Love these pages and borders! Look very easy to make and can’t wait to make them for my own pages! Thank you!

  2. Such cute layouts. I usually don’t do much with borders, but this is good inspiration for me to try :-)

  3. Thank you for the creative idea on using the Xmas tree border. I have most of the borders but have run out of ideas on how to create ideas with them.
