you’re the best-Perfect Layers blog hop

the best mom by Kimberly Crawford
Welcome to the old blog today! And another welcome if you are visiting from the Crafty Power Blog! This week, its a blog hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Perfect Paper Crafting!

The Perfect Layers tool is pretty neat. You simply use the clear rulers as a guide for measuring and cutting paper, to make a perfect mat. I love these journaling cards, but they aren’t a standard measurement (you know, like 2 7/16”), but by using the Perfect Layers tool, I was able to get the perfect matting layer all the way around my card, without all the insane math. (The corners were rounded after cutting.)

the best mom CU by Kimberly Crawford
I, of course, used my favorite adhesives to stick all of this together, 3D Foam Squares Small White and E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable.

Tip: I wanted to add more bling to the card, other than the letters for mom, so I took two letter I’s placed them at the top and bottom of the card. They appear to have created a border!
