It's time for Snow pictures! Plus a digi border to share!

We got our first big storm last week and I had fun watching our puppy Maggie get her first taste of the snow.  We spent some time in the backyard just watching her race around and play.  I had to scrap some of those pictures.  I have also been working in Inkscape to create some more borders and shapes.  Here is a layout I did that uses a new border I created.  I am calling it my oval flower border because to me it looks like flowers, but it's really just several oval shapes layered on top of each other. 

This layout was created with a kit I got the past year at Sweet Shop Designs called Winter Wonderland by Dani Mogstad.  Unfortunately the kit was just discontinued.  I have enjoyed it so I'm glad its part of my library of digi kits.  I have also included a few elements from a current kit called All That's Cozy by Traci Reed and Meghan Mullens. 

If you'd like to use the oval flower border on one of your own creations, I have uploaded the PNG file to MediaFire and you can download it here.  I think this border can be used with lots of different layout styles, it reminds me a little bit of lace.  Enjoy!

A digi Snowflake border for your winter pages!

I have been enjoying digi scrapbook over the last few months and have begun to branch out with my templates.  So I have a simple snowflake border to share with you that I whipped up after experimenting with snowflake shapes.   I am getting a kick out of creating shapes and pgn files in Inkscape.  It's taken me a while to find the time to learn the software, but it is well worth the effort.   Here is my layout that uses the snowflake border.

I created this layout using a beautiful digi kit called "Tis the Season for Peace" by Kristin Cronin-Barrow.  It's available over at Sweet Shop Designs.   The four large snowflakes sitting in the snowdrift make up the border.  Here is a pic of the border alone.

If you would like to try out this digi border on a page you can download the Photoshop Elements PSD file by clicking  (this link has expired).    Thanks for stopping by.
