Challenge #70 - Borders

I've never been a big punch person -- until they came out with lots of cool edge punches. It's my favorite tool these days. Edge punches are just one of many things you can use for borders. There's stickers, die cuts, and rub-ons to start. And if you have a die cut system such as a Cricuit or Cuttlebug you can get border dies as well. Tim Holtz has a new line out with Sizzix. My Favorite Things Stamps has just come out with Die-namics, a steel die that can be used in most systems. I've got a couple of these already :)

Your challenge is to use a border in your project. Any way you want. Then, post your creation here by Sunday, June 27th to be eligible for a RAK. I've got a new Die-namics die (or two) for one lucky participant. And My Favorite Things Stamps will add in one of their new sunshine die cuts!

According to their website, the Die-namics dies will not only cut through paper, but thin chipboard, cork, felt, bubble wrap, acetate, sticky-backed canvas and more.

Here's what our team did:

I tried to use borders in several ways. First, I painted a subtle white frame around my photo. I then layered a punch out border and a border trimmed from a 12x12 sheet. I used a border punch on the quote piece to get the notebook edge. Lastly, I layered a border trimmed from a 12x12 sheet as my title.


I used border paper, border stickers & border punches on my layout.
