Flashback Friday-Return of the border stickers....
Did you ever go through your supplies and cringe at some of the things you purchased? Things so bad that you smack your forehead as you say "What was I thinking????" You know...those things you had to have because they were so cute/cool/trendy/on sale/in the store... I may have made a few irresponsible purchases over the years, but most of my 'yikes' supplies were at one time a great purchase. Border stickers are a perfect example. When I started scrapping, these were all the rage. No page was complete unless you had the perfect banner spanning the length of your page. Coming up with your own title was crazy talk!! So I had a huge pile of these wonderful stickers for every occasion you could imagine. My mistake? Buying waaaaay too many of them and then realizing I could make my own titles and use paper I already had for a border. So now I have a file folder full of various borders. I could throw them away (and honestly a lot went to my girls for them to use for whatever), but I decided to challenge myself to use some of them. I cut several apart and used them to frame photos on some pages, filled in some gaps on others. I won't bore you with those pages, but I couldn't help but to share this one which is quite a throwback style...
Check out the fall border stickers in all their glory!!
Top AND bottom!! Gotta have the bookend effect!!
I am telling myself that the pages will be fine since the photos are several years old (not quite border sticker old, but still). Maybe no one will know that they were put together in the present time!!
So sorry about the glare on the page but with all of the rain we have been getting, I could not get a decent photo... Notice the glare off of the lovely glossy sticker! LOL!
So what was your 'I can't believe I own this' item? I would love to know!!! Even better, use it to make something and share a link to your creation!!! Who knows, I might even give away a prize for the the best forehead slapping item! Have a fabulous weekend!!
