Scrapbooking Borders

Part 15

By Susanne Perry


In this layout Susanne demonstrates a fantastic way to use patterned paper to create unique borders and journaling. She also demonstrates a number of other techniques including using eyelets, doodling and using Jac paper to create a spectacular monogram.


This layout  was created using Sandylion Tinkerbell Paper Pack (Tinkerbell Phrase paper and Tinkerbell Stripe paper), blue cardstock, pink cardstock, purple Bazzil cardstock, white Bazzil cardstock, Classic S monogram, Jac paper, magic mount, supertape ultra thick pearl embossing powder, MM "Simply Fabulous" font foam stamps, black ink, clear embossing powder, white & pink Bella flowers, cream Prima flowers, gemstones, silver eyelets, MM white/ pink snaps, MM eyelets (water brite & primary), white gel pen, black pen, white ric rac and Sandylion Tinkerbell Princess stickers.


Use two pieces of Tinkerbell Stripe paper for your background. Mat two 5x7 photos with pink cardstock and adhere to your page as shown in the layout above, leaving enough room at the top for the title.


Select and cut out the journaling and picture blocks you would like to use for your border from your Tinkerbell Phrase paper. Mat larger "2 line" word blocks on purple & blue cardstock. Mat picture blocks on white card stock & attach white snaps.


Adhere white ric rac approximately 4.5cm from the outside edge of both pages. Arrange your journaling & picture blocks down the page on top of the white ric rac to complete your borders. Attach with Magic Mount for a raised effect.


Select and cut out the journaling blocks you would like to use on the rest of your layout from your Tinkerbell Phrase paper. Working with pages side by side, position journaling blocks until you are happy with the angles & overall look, allowing some of the journaling to overlap both pages. Lightly mark positioning, remove & attach various coloured eyelets as desired.


Trim overlapped journaling to fit on each page & then adhere all journaling blocks as per markings, some with super tape to lay flat on photos/ paper & others with magic mount for dimension.


To create the monogram, adhere jac paper to the face of your letter, turn over & trim to shape. Cover with ultra thick pearl embossing powder & heat set with heat gun. Repeat with more embossing powder until desired coverage is achieved. It is recommended that you place the monogram on paper on a flat surface or similar to heat set as embossing powder gets very hot as it melts & may burn. Add a journaling block & decorate with prima flowers & gemstones. Adhere your monogram to your page and trace around with a black pen.


To create the rest of the title lightly rule a line to guide its positioning. Stamp and emboss title, working from left to right across both pages. Stamping and embossing one letter at a time makes it easier to avoid accidental smudging of ink or ink drying out before embossing powder is applied.


Attach large white Bella flowers with pink snaps and a small pink Bella flower with a white snap to the right of your title. Lightly doodle swirls with a pencil and when happy, trace over them with a white gel pen. Add small Prima flowers decorated with gem stones to finish off.


Decorate your page with Sandylion Tinkerbell Princess stickers. Apply word stickers to the sides of your photos. Apply two round butterfly stickers to the bottom of the left page, with one overlapping the photo. Apply two tag stickers next to each other on right side of photo on right hand page. Attach a large silver eyelet in each. Use blank tag for personalised journaling.


Mount heart charm picture block to white cardstock. Use Magic Mount to attach it to your layout in the space next to the tags, slightly overlapping photo. Decorate with a prima flower and gem stone.


Erase all pencil markings & viola there you have your lovely double page layout!
