Embossing Folders are primarily a card makers tool but I like using them on my scrapbook layouts as well. They add an extra bit of texture, an additional layer - it's all about layers of interest! We have a new Embossing Folder by Tim Holtz called "Ringer" that I used on one of the layouts I created at the retreat last weekend. I love the distressed rings!
Here is the layout, titled "Be Strong". I used the BoBunny Collection "Life in Colour". Keep an eye on the website, this layout will be soon be available to purchase as a kit!
