Creative Memories National Scrapbook Day

National Scrapbook Day is coming up the first weekend in May – it’s a great time to celebrate the joy of memory keeping and I hope you have the opportunity to take part in a local crop or retreat with your favorite crafting friends! If you are in the Seattle, WA area, my NSD event is Saturday, May 16th from 10am to 10pm in Bothell.

Creative Memories has released a fun page kit for 2020 National Scrapbook Day. The strawberry themed page kit features papers with lovely shades of minty blues and greens. The kit includes two sheets of cardstock – one in aqua and the other in the new shade of red – scarlet and a sheet of stickers. Also included is the cutting guide to make two, 2-page layouts. The kit is available from your favorite Creative Memories advisor, or you can email me for info on how to obtain one if you do not have an advisor already.

The project I want to share today with you is 4 scrapbook page borders made from the Creative Memories 2020 National Scrapbook Day Page Kit. You will also need the bonus embellishment pack available through your advisor. These four borders use less than 1/2 sheet of designer paper and cardstock, so you will have quite a bit of material left over.

Items needed:

  • Creative Memories 2020 NSD Page Kit
  • Creative Memories 2020 Embellishments
  • Spring Leaf Border Maker Cartridge
  • Lace Trim Border Punch
  • Basket Weave Border Punch
  • 12 inch Decorative Trimmer
  • 12 inch Rotary Trimmer (straight, scallop and wavy blades)
  • Adhesive
  • Foam Dots

Using tape runner, affix these to either side of the B&W plaid paper on the back side, exposing about 1/4 of an inch as shown in picture.
