Blog Hop: Perfect Layers & Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft is teaming up with Perfect Layers for a blog hop!  Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft will be giving away $50 in prizes and Perfect Layers will be giving away 3 Perfect Layers Rulers!

Here’s how you can win:
  1. You have until midnight EST, on April 5th to complete the hop
  2. Just follow the links below- be sure to leave a comment on each post.  That way, we’ll know you were there.  Happy hopping! 

Here is my project using the Perfect Layers tools.  I used the Perfect Tears deckle tool to create the edging on the colored pieces.  Then I used the Perfect Layers tool to create the matting.  It made it so easy to create even edges all the way around!

I used the water pen to moisten the edges of the paper around the deckle tool.  It allowed me to tear it easier since I was using cardstock.
I colored the strips that I tore with the Tropical Gelatos and layered them on the card.

The perfect layer tool is easy to use and created even matting on all sides!  Super easy!  Don't for get to hop to the other blogs and leave comments!
