Create Perfect Layers! An Anthology Sneak Peek

August 17, 2015

The papers, stickers, chipboard, and other products are essential to scrapbooking and paper crafting, but it would be hard to accomplish without tools. The Anthology by Lisa Bearnson line includes some of Lisa’s favorite tools that make creating easy and enjoyable. Today we’re looking at three tools you’ll want to add to your must-have list.


I love my trimmer for cutting paper into standard sizes, but for fussy-cutting (where you cut out detailed designs) titles, accents, and other pieces, a good craft knife and cutting mat are tools you can’t live without. The self-healing mat shown in the upper left includes guides every 1/4 of an inch to help you line up your designs and make straight cuts. The craft knife includes a cover for the blade so you won’t accidentally cut yourself or a random supply and has an ergonomic handle to help you apply just the right pressure and minimize the strain on your hand.

In the upper right corner is the Perfect Layers tool. If you love adding multiple mats to your photos, journaling, titles, and more, this tool will make the task a breeze! This tool was used in combination with the Rosey Posey Collection to create the multiple mats you see in the two lower photos. Don’t they look amazing! Just line up the Perfect Layer tool for the size you want, cut with your craft knife, and voila, a perfect mat.

Remember, these are just a quick look at the products. Once we launch the Anthology by Lisa Bearnson collection, you’ll see additional details about these products. Have a great Monday! And we’ll see you on Thursday.
