No baby layout is complete without a cute baby scrapbook border and these three ideas are perfect for all those early memories. Check them out!

Step 1: Using the 12-inch Trimmer Wave Blade, cut a 3-1/4″ x 12″ strip of purple tone-on-tone paper for the base. Make sure to cut each side to create the waves.

Step 2: Switch to the 12-inch Trimmer Straight Blade and cut a 2-3/4″ x 12″ strip of aqua argyle tone-on-tone paper, a 2-1/4″ x 12″ strip of olive tone-on-tone paper and a 1-3/4″ x 12″ strip of coral tone-on-tone paper. Layer them on the base as shown.

Step 3: Adhere the books border sticker on the coral strip, near the top. Punch a border using the Moon and Stars Border Maker Cartridge with White Cardstock and again with yellow tone-on-tone paper. Mount the yellow border just over the white one and then add it to the border underneath the books sticker as shown.

Step 4: Mount the “Storytime” banner sticker with Foam Squares on top of the aqua scalloped sticker and add it to the middle of the border.

Step 1: Using the 12-inch Trimmer Scallop Blade, cut a 3-1/2″ x 12″ strip of yellow tone-on-tone paper for the base. Make sure to cut each side to create the scallops.

Step 2: Switch to the 12-inch Trimmer Straight Blade and cut a 3″ x 12″ strip of olive striped patterned paper and a 2″ x 12″ strip of aqua leaf patterned paper. Add them to the border as shown. Adhere the yellow stars border sticker down the middle of the border.

Step 3: Punch two borders using the Moon and Stars Border Maker Cartridge with navy tone-on-tone paper. Adhere them to the top and bottom of the aqua leaves strip as shown.

Step 4: Apply the purple ribbon and “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” stickers to the right side of the border. Add clouds embellishments and then the moon and stars embellishments with Foam Squares.

Snuggles Scrapbook Border

Step 1: Cut a 3-1/4″ x 12″ strip of Platinum Shimmer Cardstock for the base. Adhere a purple scallop border sticker down each side about 1/8″ in from the edges.

Step 2: Cut a 2-1/2″ x 12″ strip of white and yellow cross patterned paper. Cut another 2-1/2″ x 12″ strip with purple argyle tone-on-tone paper. Trim the purple argyle tone-on-tone paper into three 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ squares. Mount the squares at regular intervals along the white and yellow cross patterned strip.

Step 3: Punch a border using the Moon and Stars Border Maker Cartridge with each of the yellow and coral tone-on-tone papers. Cut them into 2-1/2″ strips. Mount the yellow ones on top of the purple argyle patterned squares and the coral ones on the bottom of the squares.

Step 4: Add small sheep embellishments to the bottom squares and larger sheep (with Foam Squares) to the top square. Add the “Snuggles” and gray scallop and hearts stickers as shown.
