Dazzle Your Designs With These Outdoor Scrapbook Projects

Since the Natural Disposition collection is designed for commemorating everyday moments, it’s naturally a versatile collection that works for all sort of different projects and themes — especially those based on the outdoors! And when you pair it with the Diamond Arches Border Punch, your everyday escapades become even more elevated and elegant! Set your sights on these outdoor scrapbook projects, which include three borders and a stunning card, and dream up of how you’d dazzle your designs!

To create these borders and card, you will need:

Under the Stars Border

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 2-5/8″ strip of slate tonal paper for the base.

Step 2: Punch a border using the Diamond Arches Border Punch with mint tonal paper. Trim to measure 12″ x 2-3/4″ and adhere to the base. Punch a border using the Diamond Arches Border Punch with both tan tonal paper and chevron designer paper. Trim each to measure 12″ x 1-1/4″. Layer the pieces on the border, offsetting the tan piece in the middle. (Trim the excess from one side of the tan piece and place on the opposite side.)

Step 3: Add a tan gridded border sticker, stars and “Under the stars” stickers.

Wild & Free Border

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 3-3/4″ strip of mint tonal paper. Punch both sides with the Diamond Arches Border Punch to create the base.

Step 2: Cut a 12″ x 2″ strip of cream circles designer paper and adhere to the base, just beneath the top scallops. Cut a 12″ x 1/2″ strip of striped paper and adhere to the base, just beneath the cream circles piece.

Step 3: Punch a border using the Diamond Arches Border Punch with both light blue and slate designer papers. Trim off just the scallops (1/2″) of each and adhere to the border as shown. Fill every other little “circle” formed with a sticker.

Step 4: Add stickers, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

100% Natural Border

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 1-3/4″ strip of slate tonal paper for the base.

Step 2: Cut a 12″ x 3-1/2″ strip of green designer paper. Punch both sides with the Diamond Arches Border Punch. Adhere to the base so the slate shows through just the diamond shapes.

Step 3: Cut a 12″ x 1-1/4″ strip of tan tonal paper and adhere to the border. Cut a 12″ x 1″ strip of foliage designer paper and adhere on top.

Step 4: Add stickers, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

Hello Card

Step 1: Cut an 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of White Solid Cardstock. Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Scoring Blade, score along the long edge at 4-1/4″ and fold in half.

Step 2: Cut a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of slate tonal paper and adhere to the card.

Step 3: Punch using the Diamond Arches Border Punch from foliage designer, tan tonal and mint tonal papers. Trim each to measure 1-1/2″. Layer as shown, offsetting the tan border in the middle. Adhere together. Trim to measure 5-1/4″ and adhere to the card.

Step 4: Add “Hello” laser cut embellishment and stickers.
