First off, I apologize for yesterday's post being so late. Though the post was drafted and ready to go, I accidentally scheduled it for 5:00 pm instead of 5:00 am - oops! I will chalk it up to raucous birthday revelry (though there's a good chance it was just due to old age.)
At any rate, today's post is on time and ready to go! It features a super easy border created with stickers and die cuts. It's whimsical and fun and perfect for holiday pages!

The 5 x 7 photo is a tribute to one of my favorite shoe designers, John Fluevog. On one Christmas, we all happened to be wearing Fluevog shoes so we snapped this festive photo by the tree to document the occasion. I used small alpha stickers to spell out the title in the blank space on the photo. Behind the photo, I layered strips of patterned paper alternating with a punched scallop border strip.
Along the top and bottom edges, I lined up stickers and die cuts, trimming off the overhang (with the exception of the tabbed sticker). I arranged them to be slightly staggered and with various shapes and colors, creating a border with a lot of interest and detail.
To make the stickers go farther, you can use any portion you cut off the top along the bottom edge. This border is great for using up all those random leftovers on the sticker sheet. And when your stickers are used up, you can ask Santa to bring you more! (Only three more days til Christmas - are you ready??!)
