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.

How exciting!!! A collection for all of your school memories.
As you may remember, I am new to the scrapbooking part of papercrafting. I have a pile of my kids’ school memories that need to get into books. I am not overwhelmed by the process. I figure I will let the paper “speak” to me. That is exactly what this Bookworm Collection did to me. It spoke to me when picking a photo. My daughter spoke to me as well! When I showed her the picture that I decided on she said, “really Mom, you couldn’t have picked another picture that made me look less dorky?”.

I was playing around with the Mix & Match Cranberry Paper line again! I am a huge fan!
I have made origami hearts before scrapbooking but I knew I had to try to incorporate them in a layout. My love of different is apparent in my layouts.

Hi everybody! It’s almost that time of year when the little man starts up soccer again. I just received an email reminder to register him and I am getting excited! I love watching him play with his friends out on the field. It is such a joy to see him having such a great time playing outside and not on the computer.

It’s almost time for Friday Night Lights! I have to say–I honestly miss sitting on the bleachers each and every Friday night. It was a ritual, and each and every week I took my camera along with me. You just never know what shot or accomplishment you might miss if you don’t have it. If you are like me, you take hundreds of photos of your kids playing sports.
Sports photos tend to get a little busy, with a lot going on in them. I was trying to find a way to showcase the many photos on my layout, but not making it a clustered mess. Then it dawned on me—CLEAN lines. So, I went with the grid concept.
Not only is this grid layout great for sports, but any other occasion that you have many photos from. A family event, perhaps? We would love to see your grid layout on social media by using #creativememories.

Summer is my favourite time of the year and I seem to wish the days away all spring to get to the cottage again! Morning coffee on the deck, lazy afternoons on the beach, snacks and refreshments on the boat and smores by the campfire are a few of the things we love. Oh yeah… and taking photos of all of these wonderful memories!
Slice of Summer Digital Kit is perfect for our memories at the lake! The colours and the embellishments work fantastic!

It is so hard to believe that we are talking about sending the littles (or bigs in my case) back to school already. Where does the summer go?
Make sure you capture all of the special moments when you are sending them back to learn. Their grade, the books they like to read, their teacher, their shoe size, their favorite color, etc.
The Bookworm Collection is a fabulous pairing to any layout related to school.

Who is your love bug? Maybe it might be your husband, your child, your niece or nephew, your grandchild….. whoever it is, this is the perfect layout to add their photos to.
Document the reasons why they are your “Love Bug”. Trust me, it will make them feel loved beyond measure!
Creating a simple, yet embellished layout does not have to be a lot of work. Cut several strips of paper the same length and width, and then a few flowers at the end of each and you are golden.
