Ocean Waves Scrapbook Borders For Your Travel & Vacation Layouts

I’m loving Creative Memories’ new Ocean Waves Border Maker Cartridge! Used with the blues from Creative Memories’ Travel Cardstock or the Cool Serenity Collection it’s the perfect complement to your seaside scrapbook layouts.

I’m sure you can also think of other ways this cool new tool can dress up your summertime scrapbook pages. Today I’m going to share three borders I created with the Ocean Wave Border Maker Cartridge and the Cool Serenity Collection.
