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.

The first year of a baby’s life is epic! Every month brings brand new milestones to capture, celebrate and remember. Here’s a way to easily document these big and small monthly moments — create a set of 12 borders, one for each month of baby’s first year. Each month, print several pics and add them to a page layout, along with that month’s border. Jot down milestones and special memories and you’re all set… until next month!
The saying “stop and smell the roses” means that it’s good to slow down and enjoy the little things in life. It’s worthwhile to take the time to enjoy the process of life because there are some instances where you don’t even notice the details you’re missing out on! Take scrapbook layouts for example — slowing down and putting time and effort into the little details, like the borders or the decorations, can improve the look of your layout completely! Want to see an example? Check out this awesome floral scrapbook layout made with the Flourish collection and the Tulips Border Punch!
It’s funny — have you ever noticed that despite all the hard work that artists and archaeologists do, sometimes the natural beauty that Mother Nature provides is the most breathtaking of it all? This phenomenon was the main focus that went into designing the Textures collection; specifically, the Sky & Water Paper Pack. These papers were designed with a barrage of blues that remind us that the best visuals in the world aren’t found on a screen or on a canvas. Check out this water and sky-themed scrapbook layout that perfectly captures the natural beauty found on planet Earth!
Scrapbooking with friends is a great way to find new layout inspiration and avoid dreaded scrapper’s block (the term for when you can’t think of ideas for your next page or design). Doing a small project together, such as a border, is a great way to try out new techniques and see how we all do things a little bit differently. It’s also a lot of fun! No matter what type of page you’re creating, any layout can benefit from a nice border!
