Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

UPDATED – WINNER – Angie Wright – Washago, Ontario

Oh heck its friday right!!!! Why not share some SCRAPPY LOVE!

1. I love border punches – the very talented Christy Riopel is featuring border punches in the Spring 2012 issue of CS (coming to newsstands March 01) in her tool Junkie article! Don’t miss it! WONDERFUL ideas in there to give new meaning to BORDER!


I used a Stampin’ Up! border punch to create all the scalloped borders that you see joining together to form the background patterned paper. There are layers and layers of borders punched out!


2. I love THICK layouts! I am addicted to Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam squares!!! Here is a look at how thick this layout is! GIGGLE GIGGLE!


3. I LOVE giveaways! I just happen to have the entire collection from Fancy Pants Designs that I used to create this layout that was featured in the Winter 2011 issue of CS!
