Yikes, choosing photo mat colors!

ok ok I know this part is hard!! It is hard as a layout designer too, for different reasons.

This week has been a week of discovery!

So, of course you can use ANY color you want to cut the Design Space layers... I am not looking over your shoulder!!

But I am creating these layouts with white photo mats and a black shadow layer.

Watch for the launch of all new scrapbook tutorials launching this week! I am so excited!
