Scrapbooking Stickers

Scrapbooking Borders

Part 1

By Jennifer Gormly


Borders, whether they be horizontal or vertical, can help shape your scrapbooking pages and reflect the mood you wish to create. They are also one of the easiest ways to embellish your pages. There is a wide range of border stickers available on the market, making it even easier for us to add that special touch to our pages.


This layout uses Provocraft Yellow Swirl paper, Blue cardstock, Yellow cardstock, eyelash fibre and Suzy's Zoo Baby Borders stickers. This sticker sheet features two of each border.


To recreate this layout, begin by matting your photo first on yellow cardstock and then on blue cardstock. Next, place your two border stickers on blue cardstock and cut. When cutting, leave a frame around your sticker but follow the contour of the sticker. Also make sure you make them long enough to fit across the whole page. When you are done, glue them in place.


You are now going to use the extra borders to create embellishments for the rest of the page. Begin by cutting out shapes from the spare cloud border and space them around your page. I also mounted them on cardstock for extra depth.


To make the tag, you will need a tag cut from blue cardstock, several small squares of yellow cardstock and a strip of your remaining character border sticker approximately 4 inches long. Position your yellow squares on the tag. When you are happy with your arrangement, glue them down and trim the excess hanging over the edges of your tag. Place your sticker on top, making sure it is centred. Punch a hole in the top of the tag and thread your fibre through.


To finish off your layout, simply glue your photo and tag in place. If you wish, you can also write a name and/or date in one of the squares on your tag.


Border stickers are one of the most common embellishments used in scrapbooking, but that doesn't mean they have to look common. They look great along the sides of your pages, but don't forget you can cut them up to make your own embellishments too!
