Inspiration for this month....

The inspirational team have done it again!!! Here are their fantastic takes on this month's challenge. Thanks again to the talented Deb Hosking for a wonderful challenge!

On her layout, Deb has created an amazing border using wavy cardstock and doodling dots! What a fantastic idea!

Sue-Maree has lots of interesting borders on her layout. There's some lace, border punch, decorative edge on patterned paper, rub-ons....have I missed any???!

Kellie has patiently used her scissors and cut out a decorative border from patterned paper. Little bit of work but I'm sure you'll agree it was well worth the effort!!

Thank you ladies for such wonderful inspiration!
I hope we have given you some great ideas for your layouts. Looking forward to what you come up with.

Border inspiration for you...

I was browsing through the Scrapbook Diva's store today and found some decorative border inspiration for you all.

There are quite a few patterned papers around now with decorative borders. This delightful one is from Sassafrass Lass.

You can quite easily make your own border by adding a row of gorgeous buttons like these Making Memories ones.

If you're feeling arty farty...why not try a chipboard border. Ink, paint, distress to your hearts content for a border that's truly one of a kind.

Another easy way is to use some felt...these gorgeous flowers will certainly pop on your page.
There are many decorative border punches to choose from. They're easy to use and create lots on interest to any layout.
Why not use some beautiful ribbons as a border. Lots of designs to choose from and you don't have to choose just one!

Rub ons are an easy way to add a border. Even though the diamonds on these Cherry Arte rub ons are grouped and not in a line don't let that stop you. Trim them into strips to create your own interesting design.

And the one I find easiest of all....good ol' stickers!!! So many beautiful ones to choose from now, like these Basic Grey beauties.

Hope these suggestions help you!!!
I'm working on my layout for this month...keep an eye out for the inspiration team's designs which will be up on the night of the 15th.
Have fun and don't forget to tell your friends!!!
