I have been having some much anticipated time off work recently and this has enabled me to catch up with my scrapping. I have caught up with Xmas 2008, 2010and 2011. For some reason I had already scrapped 2009.
I have created the border at the bottom of the layout by using this memory box die - Crisp bows. I cut them out and just removed the stalk, adhered them as close as possible to the strip of patterned paper and voila! It looks just like a border punch. I have to agree a border punch would have been easier but it does add an extra use to your ordinary dies. I will be looking at some of my others in a new light now. I will be getting a range of these dies in on my website soon. I will keep you posted.
