Krislyn’s Inspiration:

The Explorer collection has me dreaming of adventures to go on, from a casual paddle along the shore to a vacation in the Rockies! The Camouflage papers blend beautifully and add to the natural feel. Creating these outdoors borders was so much fun, I couldn’t stop, so I made six! I tried to include many of the most popular outdoor-enthusiast activities, so hopefully a few will apply to pictures you are making pages for.

  2. May the Forest Be With You: maybe I am reading the directions incorrectly, but, shouldn’t step 2 and 3 be reversed? If you have already adhered your vines to the base, how do you add the birch paper and still see the vines?
