Louise here with a birthday card I made for my son.
I used punch 916 and the star stencil to create the doily around the fish and I used punch 906 for the pennant shape at the end of the greeting. I used the Koi punch 607 for the little fishie on the front and again on the inside.
Chris here and today I am sharing this super fun layout using only border strips for my background. For the strips I used my #919 punch and the left over strip! I absolutely love that each border punch really gives you 2 different strips!!! I love how just using the border strips of this "loud" paper seemed to tone it down just a tad. Can't wait to see what you create!
Charity from Scrappin' Chaos with a layout for you today.
I've been playing with ways to use a busy background pattern without distracting from the photo. For this page I used light colored papers as layers under the photo. I also chose faint patterns with few colors.
I love orchids and we used most of mine at my brother Tony & Didi’s wedding for decorations. Somehow most of them were given away to Didi or others. I was okay with that but missed my orchids. One day while working for a client my husband commented on how pretty her orchids were and told her my story. She gave her orchids and this beautiful bowl to him to give to me! It was so sweet of her!!! And it's so PRETTY! So I just HAD to create a page about them!
I used one of my favorites (Kreaxions Punch #303) with no template to create the borders above and below the stamped title. The cut-away piece is below the title. I dribbled Glimmer Mist on the flowers to imitate the design on the orchids.
Colleen here with a Halloween card. I used and old recipe card and covered both the inside and outside with paper. I used the circle cutter to make the two circles, added a sticker and ribbon and it done, quick and easy and so cute.
I find that my travel page are different than other scrapbook pages because they have more photos. It's difficult to add interest to these pages without taking away from the photos. I find that punched borders are a good way to enhance these pages without detracting from the photos. On this page, I used punch 917 to create the border across the lower left side. I used the leftover pieces from punching that border for the vertical zigzag border on the right and the hearts. I used punch 916 to make the decorative corners on the journaling on the block.
