We had tried creating borders with ribbons, pattern papers, card stocks or even doodling. Have you tried using photographs to create a border? This is also an extension to my topic "Using Thumb Prints on Layouts and Album Covers" in my tips and tricks section.
Follow these simple steps to create a photographs border:
1. very lightly draw a frame on your layout using pencil. It can be in any shape you want.
2. Using softwares (i.e. Microsoft Words) to copy paste your photographs and to create a multi-sized index print.
3. Cut the photographs out individually.
4. Arrange your cut-out photographs along your drawn frame line that you've created earlier. A combination of coloured and black and white photographs will further add interest to your border.
This technique is a good way to include lots of photographs in one layout and especially ideal for a summary page. For the overall completed layout, you can refer to my layout titled "First Six Months" in my baby gallery.
