Another favorite crafting tool

Well, not a tool.  I found these FABULOUS pre-colored images from Lili of the Valley in the United Kingdom.  They come in stamps too, but I love the already colored images.  You get a booklet of 30 images, 3 each of 10 designs.  Even though they are in the UK, they offer free shipping!!!  And even though their website says it can take 14 to 21 days to ship to the US, I have received my packages in less than 7 days.   They will have 5 new "Art Pads" out on February 24th.  Check them out HERE.

My new favorite crafting tool!!

No matter how straight I cut a mat/layer for a card, I can't glue it down straight.  Must be something wrong with my glue.   :)   I recently discovered Perfect Layers.   They are awesome.   I have the mini set, that is a great size to use on cards.  I won't worry about scrapbooking right now, as I can glue those mats on straighter than cards.  

You can find Perfect Layers HERE.  It includes a video on how to use them.  

The image on the card is a stamp by Close to My Heart (retired, I think)
Patterned paper is by Authentique.
Cardstock is from Stampin' Up
