Wonderful Memory!

I just finished a layout that I made for my 8 X 8 album and wanted to share...

The Campy Trails line from American Crafts is so perfect for outdoor layouts...even little memories like the baby robin that we watched grow up!


Have a wonderful Sunday,

Treasure Card How To

I had the pleasure of crafting with the American Crafts Campy Trails collection from Let's Capture Our Memories.

Here is a quick "how to" on my treasure card...

For card base trim pattern paper to measure 4 X 5 1/2. Cut out three circles.

Cut a piece of pattern paper to measure 4 X 2.  Sand edges (the paper I used was embossed).  The sanding tool I used is made by We R Memory Keepers and it is fabulous!  One of the best things is the little handle to hold onto :)

Now this is my favorite part of the sander...this little edge's two tools in one and plus it is pink :)

Distress the edges of circles and add to the front of card with foam squares.

Using American Craft Thickers (Campy Trails Vanilla) add sentiment to front of distresed 2 x 4 pattern paper. Add this to the front of card.

To complete my card I added a little banner border from the Campy Trails collection.

Have a great day!
