Love Mix & Match Border

Love is…..Love.

I love to drink my coffee first thing in the morning.  I love my sons humor.  I love spending my spare time scrapbooking.  I love meatballs and mashed potatoes.  I love smelling the scent of ocean air.  We can LOVE just about anything.

However, what I really LOVE about this scrapbooking border is that I was able to use the Jumbo Jet Border Maker Cartridge in a very non-traditional way.  In fact, I bet when you look at this border, you didn’t even know the Jumbo Jet cartridge was used.  And, better yet—you can use this on just about any layout about many forms of LOVE!

These beautiful Japonism Pastel papers and Natural Laser Cut Embellishment products were designed to honor the influence of Japanese art on western culture and feature both natural themes and subtle graphics in soft hues.

It was fun showing you how to do a few paper folding techniques, and incorporating them into the borders as well.

Create a few of your own borders, and share with us on social media using #creativememories .

Say “I Do” to Beautiful Scrapbook Borders

My beautiful niece recently married, and I offered (I would’ve begged) to make her wedding album for her! The new Forever Yours Wedding Collection with its elegant, timeless pieces, along with the lovely photos taken, are all I need to create the perfect keepsake of her special day.

Here are a few borders I’ve created to personalize the Forever Yours Fast2Fab Album I’m using. Something I love about making borders to decorate my pages is that they are so versatile: they work well on any style of page, from Fast2Fab to black to white.
