Scrapbook Border sets

I have busy busy making border sets for a swap on SCS hosted by mysweetsix. I had four spots so made 4 different sets.

This set was for 4th of July. I used the Jubilee cartridge for the title and the cricut markers to outline it before cutting it out. I used Creative Memories' star punch for the stars on the bottom border and the loose stars. I attached the ribbon with red staples. The tiny stars on the top border are brads and eyelet stars on the bottom corner of the journal box. The fireworks bursts are glittered for some sparkle.

I used these cartridges for the Easter set:

EGG ART - Pooh Font
Basket - Doodlecharms
Eggs - Doodlecharms
grass (on title) - Everyday Paper Dolls
paint brush - Stretch Your Imagination

I love how this set turned out! I used the following cartridges:

Title - Lyrical Letters (love this cartridge - a must have)
butterfly - Pooh and Friends
basket - Everyday Paper Dolls
journal frame - Pooh and Friends

I used Creative Memories Daisy punch on each of of the top border's green strip. I added ribbon to the bottom border and a flower with a pearl in the center. The flowers in the basket were punched with Creative Memories Micro Meadow punch. The green photo mat has a scallop border on one edge made with SU's scallop border punch.

This last set is for a new teen driver. I will have one of those very soon so I thought it would be a great set to do. I struggled with this set as much as I have struggled with resisting this time in her life! Again I used my cricut for the cut outs.
roadway - Everyday Paper Dolls
Stop sign - George cartridge & Mickey Font
car - Mickey and Friends
cones - Everyday Paper Dolls (there is also a sign that cuts with the cone but I hid it using Design Studio so it wouldn't cut)
Title on border and title on journal box/ license - Base Camp
The journal box has a cut out for a photo like a regular license. The stop sign is three layers in graduated sizes. I cut the letters out of the top red layer so the white layer shows thru. The letters that were cut out are the ones beside the journal box.
