Simply click through the links provided within each blog post and you’ll love what you discover along the way.

Before we send you on your way, we thought we’d share some fun ideas, too! First up is a simple way to dress up a section of your page with a fancy edge. Create a fun area to frame up your photos by layering coordinating papers, then cut a strip of paper to run along one edge of that area. Punch along one edge of strip. Weave a 5/8″ strip of colored paper through the slots and adhere to page to finish. We also hand-trimmed artwork from a Slide-In Pack to finish the design. Note: Products used in this page were the Be Bold & Flourish Paper Pack and Be Bold & Flourish Slide-In Pack. Click to read full post
