Welcome to the 2015 CM Bordermania Blog Hop! If you’re following all the blogs, you should have arrived here from the CM Blog.

I’m so glad you have come to visit my little Utah-based space. 🙂 Please read all the way to the end for the next link and a special giveaway! Update: The winner of the giveaway from my blog was Liz Kielley! Enjoy your borders, Liz, and a big THANK YOU to everybody who visited and commented!!

I absolutely love the new CM Border Maker, and I’ve enjoyed playing with the cartridges and some fun CM paper. Here are a few of the ideas I came up with…

Here's another way to use the Film Strip Cartridge, this time using Vintage paper and a card from the Tangerine, Plum, and Then Some slide in pack.

And here's a tried and true border: A fat strip of striped paper couples nicely with a few overlapping slide in cards!
