If you take a look at my work you will notice one constant … scallops. I just adore them. I have been having a love affair with my Stampin Up scallop punch for at least a year now. Besides using a punch there are many other ways to work scallops into your layouts. I offer up this example …


  • Use a circle punch to make a scallop border. Punch any size circle either cut them in half or tuck half the circle under cardstock/patterned paper on your layout.
  • Use a premade scallop border as a pattern. Punch holes and hand stitch a scallop border. Simplify this technique and trace the border with a pen.
  • Add premade scalloped products to your layouts. Like frills from Doodlebug or borders from Bazzill.


Try the unusual as your inspiration for your next scallop border. This layout is a few years old (HOF 2007 to be exact) but the technique could still be used today. The scallops are made from empty Making Memories tag rims. I cut empty tags in half with my Tonic trimmer. Then I adhered them to my layout with glue dots to create a unique scalloped border.


Your Happy Ending Layout

Try grounding your title with a scalloped border. Check out these previously posted project showing this technique – Destination 2009 and Travel HWY 101. Add extra dimension by pop dotting a scalloped border.

Happy Scrapping!
