Default Must Have...

So I was wondering late last night as I was stamping away at my little table what is my most favorite stampin up stamp and my most to die for stampin up tool. What could I just not live with out...

And I decided:

Stampin UP Stamp: Background Canvas stamp

Stampin Up Tool: Perfect Layering Tool

These two items really make my stampin collection complete. I use them just about every time I stamp!

So what are your most favorite Stampin Up Stamp Set & Stampin Up Tool?

Sorry to interrupt, but I just cannot figure out the perfect layering tool. So do you not cut your layers with a paper cutter/trimmer? Do you use a craft knife instead? This is probably obvious to everyone but me, so if you want to pm me instead of posting to this thread, that's super fine.

Challenged!

I would love to learn more about how to user Perfect Layers too. Any chance it could be posted here or PM'd to me too?

Thanks!

Basically they include two ruler sized tools. Each side of each ruler has a different "lip" that you butt the paper up against for different sized borders.
The lip is set back from the edge of the ruler, so when the edge of the paper is against the lip, you cut the paper along the edge of the ruler... thus giving you a border. You need to also have a craft knife and a cutting mat which are sold separately.

You get your top layer all done and cut to size, then attach it to the bottom layer. Then you butt the edge of the top layer up against whichever lip corresponds to the size border you want. Then just run the craft knife along the edge of the ruler, just like you'd normally do it. Voila, you just cut a border.


It sounds way more complicated than it is! Play with some scrap paper till you get it all figured out. Once you get the hang of it it's really quick and easy, especially if you're doing lots of layers.

QVC also carries perfect layers with an additional tool but there are some reviews on there if you're interested.

Sorry I know this isn't the clearest but I hope it helps.
