I just love this collection from Simple Stories. The DIY Boutique collection can be used for any kind of layout. I used two pictures of our new puppy “Lucky”. It just so happens this collection has a sticker word “Lucky” in the sticker pack!! How lucky am I??? I used our Perfect Layers tool #1 for the 1/8″layer in black and white text paper and the 1/4″ layer in orange. I used our Perfect Layers tool #2 for the 1/2″ layer of the floral paper around my two photos. These tools are 12″ long and are great for scrapbooking.
 I also used our Perfect Layers Mini tool #1 to make the 1/8″ layers around the banners I created. And for the top right cluster I used my Perfect Layers Mini tool #2 for the 1/16″ layer around the two elements up there. I used our new Perfect Cutting Mat to cut all my layers on.
Here is the finished page. I had so much fun making this layout. The colors in the DIY Boutique collection make me want to smile!!!

Don’t forget to leave a message and thank you for hopping along with us! We hope you have enjoyed our week of blog hoppin’ ideas and inspiration!

  6. WOW – Jenny shared TWO fabulous cards, LOVED them both!!!
    One was bright & fun, the other so elegant, they BOTH had lots of layers that showed me again how VERY COOL the Perfect Layers Ruler & Mini are – the borders can be so narrow & neat – WOW – I LOVE that finish on my cards and it takes me a lot of measuring & cutting to get it right using my ruler!!!

  9. ADORABLE photos and FABULOUS layout to welcome Lucky into your home Laura, what a cutie 🙂 The bold, bright & cheery colours & patterns make a great contrast, especially with the solid matting on each pattern block of the banners and panels!!! WOW – your Perfect Layers Tools made for perfectly straight & even edges for each layer and it must have saved you lots of time too => such a COOL TOOL!!!
