Let it Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow with flurries of FUN Christmas Borders made with Creative Memories products

Let it Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow! 
because you can't make a Snowman ⛄ without Snow??  
Or can you?
Wouldn't this make a adorable border for a page?
Using the Circle Tag maker I made the base of the Snowman and the green for his scarf. For the face, I used the larger circle from the Bubble Maker Border Cartridge and drew on face with Black Dual- Tip pen.  The hat I used 2 of the negative of the Filmstrip Border Maker Cartridge and cut it as pictured below.  The scarf was made with negative space of the Circle Tag Shape Maker found under Warehouse Finds. The snowflake background paper is from the NEW Christmas of Joy paper pack.
Using the NEW Evergreen "Tree" Border Maker Cartridge cut out one row of white trees and one row of green trees, then layer the green on top of the white. This gives it a snow like effect on the trees. I used the negative from the Medallion Frame Chain Cartridge to make the snow mound look behind the Snowman and place the four Snowmen on top.

 I LVE these Snowflakes
They are so easy to make with the Diamond Scroll Border Maker Cartridge.


Take the Diamond Scroll Border Maker Cartridge and punch out a border. Then take your scissors and cut out the center of border, like photoed to right. When I cut, I cut on angle to make the ends pointed. I then layered 4 of them on top of each other with the diamonds matching up in the center. I use the Christmas of Joy stickers for the center of the snowflakes.  The stickers are in a row of three snowflakes together on the strip with Santa on it, right under the 24th sticker.  Using my scissors I cut them in circles and placed on top.  Simple trick but looks so elegant.  If your a glitter person you could use Silver Metallic pen or Stickles and bling them up.

******************************************
HO HO HO Merry Christmas!
 
For this page I use the Film Strip Border Maker Cartridge to make the H's, use scissors to cut border to look like H's. To make the O's I used the Circle Tag Shape Maker Cartridge. Using the shades of red paper I inserted it into the Border maker system using the Picket Fence cartridge that comes with system to create Santa's belt- fringe. Punch the bottom of the page with cartridge. Then cut a black strip to weave through the Film Strip Border Maker Cartridge punch. Using a scrap piece of white I cut a 1" x 11/8" rectangle to use for the buckle. Then take your Silver Metallic pen and color the buckle. I then took the negative space from the Filmstrip Border Maker Cartridge for the middle of the belt buckle. The Merry Christmas strip under the HO HO HO is from the Christmas Joy stickers.



Happy Holidays sign I use the Filmstrip Border Maker Cartridge punch out four "windows". Then mount the Happy Holidays sticker from the Christmas Joy stickers at the top of the of the dotted line. Use scissors and cut the bottom part of the Filmstrip away to make the "post". Trim off the edge  and give the banner look to the sign.  Use your  Evergreen  Border Maker cartridge and punch out one strip of trees. From the Christmas of Joy paper pack I cut out a thin strip to mount under the trees.

For the second border, the Candy Cane border, I took the Shade of Red paper pack and the Picket Fence from the Original Border Maker System and cut out a border in red. Then I used the Diamond Scroll Border Maker Cartridge and cut out a white strip. Using scissors cut away the bottom so it looks like candy canes. 
Then from the Christmas of Joy sticker pack I used the candy cane looking sticker and mounted it to a piece of paper. It could be any color, as it won't show because it will be trimmed up and only used to stick the sticker on the paper. This gives it the Candy Cane stripe look. Alternatively, you could mount it on red and cut a little bigger strip because the candy cane sticker does NOT fill the whole space behind the white strip that you are trying to make look like candy cane. Don't be alarmed that you have small spacing above and below if you choose to keep it simple. Ensure to firmly adhere the white paper onto the candy cane strip. The pieces are very delicate and can rip easily when weaving it through the Picket Fence border.  Then I used the extra pieces of the striped candy cane for Christmas of Joy ssticker for the bottom of the border.

Love the snowflake. Had looked at the "leftovers" from that cartridge after the border was punched, but didn't think about taking apart the border itself!

Thank you! I know it was hard looming past the "candy canes". Lucky creative things come to me! Still haven't had any lucky with that on the Medallion Frame Chain yet. :)
