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).

No matter what type of page you’re creating, any layout can benefit from a nice border!
