Scrapbook Page with the Layer Guides

Hello everyone! Eva Pizarro here today on the blog showing you how to use the new Layer Guides to create a quick geometric layout.

What I love the most about these Layer Guides is that I don’t have to measure and calculate the exact width of every paper I am going to use. I simply place the guide over my paper and use my x-acto knife to cut on every side.  The guides have a catch-lip system that makes the job really easy and they won’t move while your are cutting!

I started my layout with a 4 inch picture that I glued to a scrap piece of paper. I used my 3/8 inch layer guide and cut on each side.

I did the same with several papers from the Constellation collection by our fiends at DCWV.

I typed my journaling on the edge of my white cardstock using my Typecast Typewriter. I even ran my papers through with my alpha stickers attached!

I placed my picture in the center of the page in a 45 degree angle. All the layers helped my picture stand out and become the focal point of my layout.

Finally I embellished using a tone on tone technique and some die cuts and stickers from the  Creekside collection by 1canoe2.

The Layer Guides really made my work easy and because of the metal trim I know they are going to cut straight for a long time! Thanks for joining me today and have a great week!
