Victory Scrapbook Preview!

"Victory!" This exclusive scrapbooking kit from Close to my Heart will be our focus as my next workshop/class at the end of June. I will be teaching you how to use the edge distressing tool, which makes any of the papers in this kit instantly appear to be tattered or torn fabric!

Victory Layout #3: Photos: 1 V 4x6, 2 H 4x6, 4 Square 3x3
The design for this layout is from the How-to Book titled "Imagine". The layout is called "Sweet Symphony". I used the Chocolate card stock for bases.

I used the top square on the first page for a small stamped title area. I added the Durables Square Studs as accents that looks as if they are holding it in place.

The edge distressing tool makes adding distressed texture to paper and card stocks easy AND safe! The blades of the tool are down inside the circle disk and not exposed to areas where your hands hold it. You simple put the edge of your paper in one of the blade areas and go back and forth until it is the desired roughness. You can do a little or a lot. I think it makes the edges of the patterned papers look almost like canvas!

 I am very excited about how simple and effective this effect is on my layouts! I entered this layout in the Heart 2 Heart Blog Distressing Challenge. Visit the blog challenge to see what other Close to my Heart consultants and customers have created with a distressing technique!
