Share The Funfair With Admission Ticket Borders 

Step right up, we have just the ticket for you — we’re admitting one and all to use the Admission Ticket Border Punch! Many of us scrappers like to keep (those not privy to scrapbooking may say “hoard” 😉) old receipts, newspaper clippings, movie stubs, trading cards and tickets aplenty — train, concert, amusement park, plays, musicals, VIPers and more — in order to save and relive those treasured trinkets and memories. So here’s your ticket to the past with a few admission ticket borders!

Hint: You can also save your tickets and other bits of memorabilia in CM’s Peekaboo Pockets™! These clear, photo-safe pockets allow you to slide photos, journal mats or artwork into the pockets and use the adhesive strip to easily attach them to your layout pages or the album binding. And they’re repositionable, so if you want to change where you placed your pockets, you can easily move them.

Feast On Your Blessings With This Fall Scrapbook Layout

It’s time for roasted turkey, buttery mashed potatoes, fresh green bean casserole, tasty stuffing (or dressing, depending on your family tradition!), delectable gravy, perfectly spiced pumpkin pies, tart cranberry sauce… and an attitude of gratitude! The U.S. Thanksgiving holiday is here and Product Development Creative Manager Noreen Smith is dishing up a fall scrapbook layout to relay what you’re most thankful and appreciative for.

Noreen: “Although I love getting lots of photos onto a layout, sometimes I like to highlight one special family photo. This one was taken on the rooftop terrace of the Shriners Hospital for Children in Montreal this fall when our son Grayson was given a clean bill of health after a grueling back surgery and recuperation. He was so excited to be given the go ahead to resume doing all the things he loves, and our whole family was relieved and grateful for the positive outcome. This photo captures that moment perfectly and I only need the one photo to remember how grateful I am.” 

Feast on this blessings beauty for yourself!

A Woodland Wonder Of Evergreen Memories: Winter Scrapbook Borders

When deciduous trees go into dormancy and drop their leaves, what’s left are sturdy brown trunks and branches that seem to blend into the frigid landscape, only to be forgotten until budding spring. But evergreens never take a break; they withstand blustery days and stand out against Old Man Winter’s white coat. The frosty scene turns into a magical wonderland and a forest of opportunities — snowshoeing, nature walks, birdwatching and skiing. Also to add to the list? Making these winter scrapbook borders featuring the Treeline Border Maker Cartridge!
