Scrapbook Borders!

It is so nice out today, but here we are inside cleaning...and posting while I make lunch because cleaning is not all that fun anyways.

I love making (and using) border sets in my scrapbooking! Here are a few I made recently.

This first set is a pirate theme. I LOVE the glimmery card stock for the borders and the journal box (can't see it by the picture though). The pirate ship is cut using the Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge. I also use SU's Ahoy, Matey set for the journal accent and the treasure box. The other colors are SU's Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel and Night of Navy.

I couldn't resist making this second set:) We are having a little girl come September, so I'm getting in girly mode already. The borders card stock is DCWV and the rest is SU's Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery. I think the DP is Heidi Grace - it's double sided and oh-so-adorable.I used stamps from SU's Tiny Talk and Bold Butterfly (the flower). The journal box is highlighted with stickles around the flourish. The center of the flower is a dew drop, and I just used some misc buttons and pink ribbon.

This last set is a spring theme. The borders papers are DCWV and the flowers are just 2 cut and pieced together with a gold brad from a flower punch. The journal box is pretty much the same as the above one, the other two accents are cut with the Cricut from the Walk in My Garden cartridge. The ladybug's spots are filled in with black stickles.

Whew that was a lot! Thanks for looking!
