Perfect Paper Crafting has been a lifesaver to me.  I love for my mats and layers to be straight and tidy, and have tried so many other methods.  With the Perfect Layers Rulers, there is no guesswork.  You can use any rotary cutter or craft knife with your Perfect Layers Rulers!  Check out their website for a video tutorial, and see the information on my sidebar to find out how to save 5% on any purchase!

I used two of the Operation Write Home sketches for my cards today.  You can find all of their past sketches here!  All of my mats are created using either the 1/8" or 1/4" rulers.  Look at how nice and straight they are!

All Stamps are Gina K. Designs 'Lighthearted Wishes'.  Patterned Paper is Bazzill 'Believe'. Red Cardstock is Bazzill Basics.

All stamps are Gina K. Designs 'The Northwoods'.  Patterned paper is Bo Bunny 'Rejoice'. Gold Cardstock is a muse studio.

Ahhh, Patti, you could be the poster child for Perfect Layers. I knew you'd have a couple of gorgeous cards using that awesome tool, and they are fabulous. I LOVE how you mixed up the layers, some 1/4 inch, some 1/8 inch - that totally added an extra wow factor.
