Whether you play the game or cheer in the stands, sports of all kinds offer some of the most exhilarating moments of our lives! Capture all the excitement of game day by snapping pics of the action, the players and teams. Try to include wide shots of the venue and close-ups of determined and focused faces. Add programs & ticket stubs, and journal all the highlights. Then pull it all together on your page layout with some action-inspiring borders.
One of my favourite things to do when Creative Memories launches a new Border Maker Cartridge is to punch out a whole pile of the new border and just play! I like to see how it can be layered, stacked, positioned on a page, etc. I just love spending some time being creative! I also love seeing which other Border Maker Cartridges coordinate nicely with it.
Today I want to share with you what came out of my playing and experimenting with the new Dancing Daisies Border Maker Cartridge. I chose to punch a pile of white border strips as a starting point and then used the Mix and Match Paper Pack and Embellishments to complete some borders.
Liven up the pages of your favorite student’s album with the new Bookworm Collection! Here, I’ve made a few border pairs. You can use them to decorate both the top and bottom of your page or to spread the design across a two-page layout.
There are SO many fun ways to play with the Mix & Match Collection!
These papers and embellishments are endlessly versatile and will make your page layouts and projects come to life when you just need that certain pop of color.
Try these borders out, check out the variations that follow, and then see what you come up with!
It’s that time of year…time for family vacations! So much of the fun is in the planning and the getting there. Why not start your vacation pages with pictures of the eager adventure-bound faces on the plane and stories and memorabilia of the travel plans?
Here I’ve paired the Gallivant collection with the Jumbo Jet Border Maker Cartridge to create some easy vacation borders.
Wherever your adventures take you this summer, I hope you enjoy the journey!
These beautiful Japonism Pastel papers and Natural Laser Cut Embellishment products were designed to honor the influence of Japanese art on western culture and feature both natural themes and subtle graphics in soft hues.
It was fun showing you how to do a few paper folding techniques, and incorporating them into the borders as well.
Create a few of your own borders, and share with us on social media using #creativememories .
There’s nothing like getting out in nature–feeling warm breezes, smelling trees and campfires, experiencing your surroundings, from ordinary to majestic. Of course, having your camera along to try to capture it all is part of the adventure! When you’re back home, spreading out your pictures and remembering the day, the Adventure Collection’s earthy designs, colors and images will help you tell the story in vivid detail.
My beautiful niece recently married, and I offered (I would’ve begged) to make her wedding album for her! The new Forever Yours Wedding Collection with its elegant, timeless pieces, along with the lovely photos taken, are all I need to create the perfect keepsake of her special day.
Here are a few borders I’ve created to personalize the Forever Yours Fast2Fab Album I’m using. Something I love about making borders to decorate my pages is that they are so versatile: they work well on any style of page, from Fast2Fab to black to white.
Looking to add a fun, graphic “punch” to your pages? Try out the new Doily Border Punch! The doily shapes are nearly 1-1/4″ big and by themselves really accent a page. But add a few more of the fun papers and embellishments from several favorite Creative Memories collections, and they really pop!
Those with graduates this spring know how frenzied and full (and emotional) these last weeks leading up to graduation can be! Let your documenting of the event be the easy part. Simply grab the new Cap & Gown Collection, cardstock in your grad’s school colors and a few tools, and follow along to make some simple striking borders for your upcoming pages. Oh! And congratulations to your grad…and to you!
