Frightfully Easy Page Enhancements

August 17, 2016

Who loves changing things up sometimes? I do and apparently Janette Ballard does as well! She made several fun things to enhance your scrapbook pages with the Frightful & Furry by Lauren Hinds collection.

OMFL-Frightful-and-Furry-by-Janette-Ballard-700px Can you believe all the fun things she made? There are triangles and a square punched with the Classy Ivy Designer Cartridge. She also used the Starry Night Designer Cartridge on a journal card and to create the Boo title. And look at all the border options! Layered pocket border strips, punched and layered 2″ border strips, and lots of layers. I love that on the Trick or Treat border she included one punch from the Classy Ivy Designer Cartridge for a little extra punch on the border.

As she mentioned in her image, these borders, journal cards, and other enhancements look amazing on the Black Noir Designer Cardstock, as well as Daffodil, Pumpkin, and Plum Solid Color Cardstocks. Plus, the Black Noir Refill Pages will look amazing too. Plenty of options for creating stunning pages.

Janette’s creations inspired me to play with the pet portion of the Frightful & Furry by Lauren Hinds collection.


To get things started, I created this cat journal card and border strip. While I love my dogs, I honestly am an animal lover, which definitely includes cats. I trimmed the curled kitty from a 2″ border strip and adhered it to a journal card. I liked having it partially off the journal card for a slightly different shape. The border is created with two 2″ border strips – the Meow strip and Cat strip. I also used a green pocket border strip for a pop of color.


This set can be used for any four legged pet. The title piece is created from a 2″ border strip that I trimmed and then used the remaining paw print section (cut into two 1″ strips) to create photo corners on the journal card, the banner strip on the second journal card, and punched with the Zig Zag Design Cartridge a 1″ piece of the paw prints and adhered to the side of the title. Those paw prints make me happy!!


This last one is definitely for the dogs. The top portion of the 2″ border strip is the back of the border strip I cut the curled cat from. I trimmed it down a bit so it was balanced. I then took a piece of denim designer cardstock from the collection and punched it twice with the Heart Paws Design Cartridge to create the double paw prints and adhered that to the 2″ border strip. Pretty easy, but a fun twist on a border.

Did this give you some ideas for enhancing your scrapbook pages? Thanks Janette for getting the creative juices flowing and sharing your clever ideas.

Have fun creating!
