Carborders – What’s that all about?

Standard

I share a love of paper, stickers, bling, inks and stamps with card makers and album makers.  We are often all creating in the same room at a workshop.

One of the things I love to do for my customers is offer the opportunity to try new products via a Make and Take project.  I’m always in a dilemma about whether the project should be a card or a page border.

So, I put my thinking cap on and found a way to make something everyone can use!  It’s called a Carborder. We begin with a 4″ strip of cardstock and create a piece of art to decorate the right hand side.  Once completed, card makers can score and fold and album makers can stick it to a page.

Scored and folded it is a card that will fit in a C6 envelope.

We will be featuring Carborders for each of our NEW paper collections at this month’s Paper Picnic.  If you are local to Perth, why not join us?

We’ll have 7 stations set up – one for each new paper collection.  Click here to see them!

Each station will offer the opportunity to create one ‘Carborder’ that you can turn into a card or a page border. The photos above show our La Vie En Rose Carborder.  You will receive a kit with all supplies pre-cut and be shown a different stamping technique at each station.

Once you’ve made your Carborders, head back to the tables to work on your projects for the rest of the day.  We will have a sampler pack of new products and a handout of page sketches to use your Carborders in your albums.

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop.  If you arrived from Jenny’s Blog you are in the right place. Simply read through this post and click on the link to the next blog at the end of it.  Keep reading and ‘hopping’ until you find yourself back where you started from.  Each blog will showcase a project featuring the gorgeous Paper Garden Stamp (S1509) stamp set which is September’s Stamp of the Month.

The CTMH Paper Garden (S1509) Stamp Set is soft and feminine.

Today’s page features my darling mum celebrating her 86th birthday.  The Nevermore paper (X7198B) has a subtle pattern and co-ordinates beautifully with 3 of our brand new Ink colours – Eggplant (Z2647), Pomegranate (Z2653) and Fern (Z2650).  The cardstock is also Eggplant and Pomegranate.  Both are available in the fabulous NEW Enchantment Cardstock Combo Pack (X5781).

Stamping straight onto the paper with Eggplant lets the Nevermore print show through.

The brand NEW Basics Fundamentals Sticker Pack has some lovely gold, silver, black and white shapes and letters in it.  This little tab was perfect.

2 of the individual flowers and a leaf are compatible with the Artiste Cricut cartridge.  I cut them in whisper cardstock to keep the colours soft. Gold Gems (Z2023) and Gold Shimmer Trim (Z1985) complemented the heat embossing.

The decorative edge on this strip was created using the Scallop Border Punch (Z1851).  I ran the edge over my VersaMark ink pad (Z891) and embossed in gold.
