Creative Life Scrapbooking Explorer PJ Party

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I'm sharing the layout I created for Creative Life Scrapbooking Explorer PJ Party. This is my take on the Explorer Collection.

I've been waiting for an opportunity to create a layout using the Majestic Mountains Decorative Border Punch. The punch and the retired zig-zag border maker cartridge was just what I needed to enhance tonight's layout. Add stickers from the Explorer Sticker Pack and that's all that was needed to finish this quick and easy layout. By the way, I overlapped the cut wood sticker at the bottom of the page then used sharp scissors to trim it flush with the bottom of the page.

Border Maker Monday

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I'm sharing my newest post from our Creative Life Scrapbooking Facebook Page. 

The past 4 to 5 weeks have been super busy for me. With birthdays to celebrate and photograph, two baby showers, two weekends away with family, two maternity photo shoots, and great-grandchildren to photograph I've had a massive amount of digital images to process, edit, and prepare for printing. When I'm not out taking pictures, I'm at my computer editing pictures (my house is a mess & my poor husband has been eating fast food for weeks). Add Easter to all of this and I really needed to create something super quick and easy for today's post. The new CM 12-inch Rotary Trimmer to the rescue!! 

I used CM's HAPPY BIRTHYAY collection for my layout and used the rotary trimmer and the wave blade to create one 1 1/2 x 12 inch border strip, two 1 x 12 inch border strips and one 3/4" border strip. To create the borders, simply layer the border strips as shown, adhere the stickers and embellishments shown and walla! Two easy, peasy scrapbook borders for your page. I also used the wave blade to create the second layer for my journaling box. I started late in the afternoon and finished my layout in time to catch enough late afternoon light on my kitchen table to photograph my layout.
