Step by Step paper crafting tutorials

Cathy @ scrapbooknerd.com I had a large amount of photo’s I wanted to create a layout for, way to many for a single 12 x 12 so I decided to get out my WRMK Fuse Tool and see what I could come up with. Using the Simple Stories – So Fancy Collection and some elements from the Simple Stories – Life in Color Collection I got to work. First I created all the pages, 2 – 12 x 12’s and 2 – 12 x 7’s. For the 2 – 12 x 7’s , I used the fuse tool and cut up a 12 x 12 to fit. (Underneath the photo sleeve  I put a white paper so you can see that I slightly creased the photo sleeve to give myself a guide where to place the fuse tool ruler)  I slipped my page in the sleeve. First I fused the layout in , then switched to the cutting tool . 1

Here you can see I the layout fused, cut and in it’s pocket. 2


Here is another angle


To fuse the above pocket to the 12 x 12 layout you need to insert a piece of cardstock into the sleeve and then fuse your pocket to only one layer of the sleeve. 4

Here I am fusing the 12 x 7 to one side only of the 12 x 12 only 1

Again fusing the 12 x 7


Here is the finished project with the pockets closed 5

I now have all my photo’s and journalling together . This was a much bigger project than I usually do when working with my fuse , but I am thrilled with the result.

Another example of using the fuse tool

Big projects or small I love how my WRMK fuse tool gives me a variety of ways to save my memories.

Thank you for letting me share my projects with you today

Happy Crafting !
