All You Need Are Friends

All You Need Are Friends Layout

You live your life and along the road you get friends.
You have your kindergarten friends.
You have your school friends.
Your college and graduate school’s friends.
Your work friends.
Your neighbor friends.
New friends. Life long friends.
You get to have so many friends.
Then you move thousands of miles away and you get to know how is it to have no friends at all.
Then you meet new friends and all is good again 🙂

Have you stopped for a moment to appreciate a friend lately? If not, take a moment to do that. It’ll feel so good.

This picture was taken on a hiking trip with a few of our new and very dear friends. Nadav and I are on the right.

Supply Used


Scalloped Borders

Most of the borders I used were cut outs of a single paper from Crate Paper’s paper pad. I simply followed the shape of the circle and pennants on it. But on the top left corner I wanted to create a fast border to mimic the same look. Here’s how I did that.

  1. I punched some mini circles from an old polka dot paper I had a scrap of (utilizing the circular shape) and also punched a few mini circles from a scrap of green cardstock.
  2. I adhered a strip of tape to the back of the border strip and adhered the circles on it, one by one, so that only half of them would show on the other side, making sure that they all laid flush with one another.
  3. Then I finished off by cutting the excess circles that popped out of the strip.

You can use the same technique with different kinds of punches to achieve different type of scalloped edges. For instance, I used a starburst (pinked circle) shape on a different layout that I will share soon.
