Making a fishing net border with the roller coaster border punch

Let's a create this fun fishing layout with a border idea using the roller coaster punch?
why not .. so many ideas to be used with punch. I've seen turtles, baskets, and more made from this punch..

The supplies I used for this layout was the Magic Awaits paper and Stickers,
peacock and white cardstock, scraps of genuine and goldenrod, black  paper.

Lets punch it up! 

For the border I punched  the dips and diamonds border maker and cut card stock. cut at 2.5 inches after punched.

punch paper of choice using the roller coaster punch and use scissors to create nets as shown 

I used the outdoor Adventure Quartet Punch and punch fish with my scrap paper

to create the weeds I used the gum leaf bunch using scraps from the genuine  can use other leaf punches or spiky evergreen chain border maker punch

 As I was looked at the stickers I noticed this one saying an wondering if I could mat using the CCS.. well you can.. this little sticker is great, but it needed a little pop to stand out in the border.  Using the Gemstone CCS templates and the red and green blades, I matted with goldenrod and white cardstock.. just what it needed.

To put the border together I adhered the blue cardstock to a piece of the Magic Awaits patterned paper. This would work well  also adhering directly a magic awaits F2F page.

I added the camera sticker border to the top, and arranged the nets fish and leaves as desired ..
Hey if you can catch and fish then feel free to fill the nets with fish instead of weeds.
place the hexagon saying as desired.

Around the saying add clusters of stickers to highlight.. and use foam squares to create dimension 

Always need a little journaling to say what the day was about.

I used the decorative trimmer and created a fun wave..
To finish off the layout I used the rest of peacock cardstock to create mats for the photos.
I added more weeds at the bottom with spiky evergreen border maker cartridge.
a few more embellishments to finish it off  

Hope you enjoyed this border idea..

Winter Blog Hop - Beneath the Pines at Bridal Falls

Thanks for Blog Hopping with the Creative Life Scrapbooking Team.
Hope you are enjoying all the great ideas so far.
For my Blog Hop I Created a layout with Beneath the Pines Collection.

For this layout I used 2 patterned papers for my base.
Using the patterned paper with the trees cut two pieces at 3.5 inches and  place on the top of the layout.

For the fun Title I used the beneath the pines mat pack card.
Using the the heart CCS pattern, cut a heart using the the Red blade.

To create layers I used the green blade with the wild oats that was in the cardstock buffet promo.
Use the blue blade with the black shimmer cardstock. 
( The black and white cardstock would also be also fabulous )

I embellished the title with stickers and beneath the pines laser cut embellishments and the spiky evergreen border maker punch.

I used border stickers to connect the back ground papers 
I used some mats from the mat pack and papers to mat the photos .. 
Don't forget about this great  2 way corner rounder .. its a quick way to add interest to your pages.

I used the inverted side of the corner rounder punch with some of my mats

to create a fun journaling box I used a mat from the mat pack.
 Cut with trimmer at 2.5 inches  and then punched with the new tag punch.

I layered with stickers and other embellishments 

To create another cluster I used the oval CCS and some punch outs using the spiky evergreen border maker cartridge. I added a few fun stickers to finish off the cluster.

I used a Frame that I had from the Keepsakes laser cuts ..matches perfectly.
Love how a lot of the collections go together so fabulously .

Pool fun with the Playtime theme pack

Want to make this fun layout? Its easy with  the Playtime theme pack 

 Grab a couple photos and your Playtime theme pack and lets get started

Use the dark blue patterned paper as the base.
Cut a strip of the raindrop patterned paper at 4" to use as a base under your title

Let's create the POOL title
Use the solid cardstock
to make it a little easier to keep lettering at the same size I cut the cardstock to 4"
To create the "P" I used the small circle CCS template with the blue blade to create the inside circle on the top part. for the outside of the top used the red blade with the medium circle. 
I cut only about half the circle. and then used the trimmer and cut a 1 inch strip to create the stem

To create the "L" cut a 4 inch by 2 inch strip and cut a 1 inch X 3 inch strip out.

For the Fun floaty  "O's" I used the rainbow patterned paper 

With the inside of the large CCS circle with the Red blade
for the outside of the "O"

and used the inside of the Smallest CCS circle with the red blade 
for the inside cut of the "O"

Cut 2 

 Place the letters on the page as desired
and add stickers to embellish

Adhere the border sticker at the edge of the patterned paper 

Use the rest of the rain paper to mat your photos  

Embellish with more stickers and add foam squares to create dimension 
arrange the grass, tree, and pool stickers at the bottom of layout

 finish off with journaling of choice

Step it up with the Just Dance theme

Loving this new Theme Pack " Just Dance"
Let's see how I created this layout 

you will need to cut a 4'' by 12" strip of silver cardstock.  Punch on both sides with the dazzle border punch or a border punch of  your choice.

Punch out a strip with the Crystal chain border maker cartridge using black cardstock,

 Using your scissors or trimmer cut design in half 

Using this paper out of the theme pack, cut the top one inch strip to help create your border for this layout. Also cut out the"shine bright" rectangle and striped rectangle 

cut the rectangles to measure 2.5 inches wide and then punch in the tag punch

use some of the die cuts from the Keepstakes package

using the other side of the patterned paper, cut a circle using the large CCS circle pattern with the blue blade. Can also use some of the extra paper for matting photos.

Tip: Use embellishments or punched paper to cover unwanted objects in your photo.
I used the a punched tag to cover a chair in the photo below.

Assemble the border using repositional tape. 

Use stickers and other embellishments to decorate your layout.
