Airplanes represent freedom and new possibilities. When the Wright brothers set out to create a way for humans to take to the sky, they weren’t doing so for their own benefit — they were doing it to open up new possibilities for human travel and where we could go.

Take a look at these fun airplane scrapbook border ideas and try them out for yourself!
Scrapbooking comes with peaks and valleys. There are times when you can get frustrated (something isn’t turning out just right, you keep getting distracted, etc.), but these valleys are greatly overshadowed by the peaks of happiness that you feel when something turns out exactly like you wanted it to. This metaphor is brought to life with this outdoor scrapbook layout made with the Majestic Mountains Border Punch. Check out this fun layout created by blog contributor Krislyn!

Earth Day is just around the corner, and we all share the responsibility of protecting the environment so we can pass down a habitable home for the generations to come.

This is why it’s important that we all make a conscious effort to reduce our carbon footprint. Read on to learn which CM products are recyclable so you can practice eco-friendly scrapbooking!
