"Sweet & Sassy" (Blog Hop with Perfect Paper Crafting & Simple Stories)

I'm thrilled to be taking in part in the Blog Hop with Simple Stories and Perfect Paper Crafting.  Today is the last day of the blog hop and I want to thank you for joining me on my blog.

I was thrilled to be able to be given the opportunity to play with this fabulous tool. 
I received the Perfect Layers - set of 3 different 'rulers' each with 4 different measurements. The possibilities are endless and definitely make creating mats so easy!

I decided that I would mat my photo with a few layers and then mat the papers on my layout as well.

So I began layering my photo. I first printed it with a white border and then matted it onto some turquoise card stock. I adhered the photo to the card stock first and then used the 1/4" measurement to trim around the photo.

I then matted the turquoise card stock onto some orange card stock using the 1/8" measurement.

I matted a piece of black card stock onto a piece of the diagonal striped patterned paper using the 1/4" measurement. I then matted that entire piece onto some orange card stock using the 1/16" measurement.

Adding layers is a great way to add dimension to your work.  After matting your pictures you could also adhere them to your layout using foam squares for even more dimension. I decided to just adhere my main photo flat because I wanted to pop up my title instead.

Here's my finished layout.

Here's a few close-up shots.
