Having a love affair with Photoshop lately...

You know that super duper cool Fiskars Upper Crest border punch? Well, I absolutely love it and I would use it on every single page if I had it with me right now.



Since I am far away from my scrap goodies, I am filling the void left by paper with pixels. Lots and lots of pixels!!

So, I was thinking that someone out there had to have a digi element that looked like that punch, but alas, no one does.

Guess what I did? I created my own!!  Design degrees are available online  if you're interested in creating your own unique style.


I used the curvy brace ( { ) form Cantabile font, turned it and made it into a row of symbols by copying the layer many times.

Then I created a new rectangular layer on top of it, filled the blank spaces with the clone tool, and voila! My fave border.

I made them in 12' and 8.5", and I can color it or use it as a clipping mask.

Here is a little super quick page to show the border in action...



I gotta say, I feel very proud of my self.
