To create my out of the box image I used the Perfect Square from Perfect Paper Crafting, the technique is so easy when using this tool, I cut to and between each image using an Exacto craft knife then cut around the image with scissors.
A new product on the market from PPC is the Perfect Cutting Mat and it is so much easier to use compared to my large glass cutting mat which is what I got the best results with in the past. The smaller mat gives me a good clean cut without the bulk for storage, it’s much lighter in weight for my bad shoulder and I avoid the horrible glare from my table lamp. Yes, it's a winner for sure!
I also used the new Mini Rulers to cut my borders. I find them to be very easy to store, they come with a case to avoid damage if you travel with your tools and I like the feel of the smaller ruler in my hands…perfect for card creators. I’ll save my large rulers for longer cuts such as use when creating scrapbook pages.
