Simple Borders Using Dancing Daisies!

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.

A Man’s Best Friend: Paw Print Scrapbook Border

I did not grow up with any pets. Well, a parakeet. Does that count?

Unfortunately, I grew up with asthma and allergies, which meant no extra dander in the house. It made me sad to not be able to even pet the neighbor’s dogs or cats.  I had no idea what I was missing out on until I outgrew the allergies and asthma in my adult years.

My boys begged and begged for a furry friend.

Woodland Whimsy Baby Borders

What’s not to love about the new Woodland Whimsy Baby Collection? The colors, the patterns and the oh-so-adorable baby animal stickers are breathtaking! I couldn’t wait to play…

These borders are designed with options for both boys and girls and play really nicely with the Woodland Whimsy Fast2Fab predesigned pages. Make them up, and use as you wish to add a little flair on pages of baby’s monthly milestones.

Tip: You may want to wait to add the month shapes, as you can mix and match any of the borders with any months as you create your baby’s album.
