Default January Border Challenge!

Thank you all for your great participation in my Border Challenges! I truly enjoy seeing all the variations on whatever theme we are working on for the month!

This month I would like to challenge you to edge your border. What??? .. you ask?

Here is what I mean:


Cherly, from my Creative Team, created this beautiful border, and I love how she edged the top border curve with the darker blue scallops. (Kit: Jack Frost & Friends).

So here are the rules:

* Create a layout with a border, and edge that border with anything - scallops, stars, stitching.. whatever..
* You may use any kit you wish.
* Post your layout in the Surprise Me Border Challenge Gallery
* Come back here and post your preview and a link to the Surprise Me Border Challenge Gallery in this thread. This makes it super simple for us to find your layouts in the gallery, and we thank you for taking this extra step!

What do you earn by participating? Well, theStudio offers a 10% discount on ALL of your purchases for the following month. So, if you participate this month and get a layout posted (AND post a link here in this forum), you will receive 10% off every purchase made next month! No coupons are required. The discount will automatically be applied to your purchase. How easy is that? And YES, this is on top of any sales prices too.

Hey Norma! Glad to have you home. Will be looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Hi Pam, Love your photo, and the vintage layout you have created for it. Love the diagonal border too!

Elk Fan, this is lovely! I love the photo blend (such a cutie!), and the edge , stitching, and paper bordering the glitter really adds great interest!

Yez2psp, What a beautiful page, love the clustering you have done, with all of the layering.. very lovely! And I see you put your border edging on the straight edge, instead of the curved edge. Nice take on the idea here!

Karen, what a fun night this looks to have been! Your border fits it perfectly!

Cathy, this is darling. What an adorable little guy! Love how you have edged your border with the beads! And how you tucked the frame between both borders.

There are wonderful pages in the gallery.

Here's mine

Karen, since this has become a monthly challenge is there any way you can give us a tutorial or two on how to make the wonderful curvy borders you use?

Arrrggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so annoyed right now!!

This LO was not how I wanted it to end up, but I lost the whole page due to my program crashing and I hadn't saved it on the program, however I did save it as an image to see how it looked.

I was playing around with the shading colours and I do like the way it looked but I wanted to change the borders to black and the hearts on the border to black and pop them back under the top border, but it was so much work initially I am not going to, so although it is a little unfinished and not how I want it I am still pleased with the end result

Oh, that totally is a FUN border, Miamm. I love the edging you put on the curve!

Rhonda - Edging your border with Text! What a brilliant idea!!!! love this!

Gigiscraps, this is lovely... Love the scalloped edging you have added to your border.

Pam, this is beautiful. I love the lace you have used on your borders. I have made a note about your request for a tutorial on curves pieces!

Oh, dear...mootscrapper... how many times have we all done that! Yes, it is still lovely! And I love the heart border!!

TillM... congratulations on your newest granddaugher! What a lovely photograph!!! So sweet, just as you have said! And your sweet edging on your border is perfect here!

Diane, what a pretty border! Love the strip of jewels that you have placed on the left edge! It ties all of the borders together beautifully.

kpmelly! YEA! I'm glad you did it again! You don't have to apologize, if that is what you were doing! Beautiful result here! Love all of the stacked borders, with your photo tucked in.. and the straight border on the right grounds them all.


Tamie... DARLING "after" picture!!! Arianna DOES look adorable!! Very cute border, and love all of the fun elements you edged it with.


LOL, Lella! What a great photo! Love the text on your border edge and how you turned the scallops to the right!
