Braces Border


I'll have the full view of this layout in tomorrow's TIPsy Tuesday post about pockets.  Here is a little peek at the border for the pocket.  Most of the supplies are from Fancy Pants and I got the idea for this from one of the journaling tags in the collection.  It had a row of braces {} turned sides ways - one up, one down going through the middle of the tag. 

For this border, I cut braces uses the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge on the Cricut.  The Tempting Turqoise ones are cut with the Rolly Polly option and the others from a piece of designer paper are just the regular braces.  I layered mine on top of each other rather than end to end to cover all of my paper at the top of the pocket and also to get one centered over the rising "2010." 

It was a really fast and cheap border for this page.  I just love the Cricut!  (No kidding, right?)

Ingredients:  Designer Paper and embellishments: Fancy Pants Delight and Daily Grind collections
Ribbon:  SU! Dusty Durango
Cardstock:  Tempting Turquoise by SU!
