I heard all the buzz about the Kellycraft™ Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square at CHA this summer. I saw the demo. But, until I had it here in my own studio and actually had a chance for some hands-on use, I didn’t fully understand how much it would truly SIMPLIFY aligning things!
For this “Onward to 6th” scrapbook layout highlighting my son’s first day of middle school, I wanted to incorporate not only the colors from his shirt, but the rough feel of the lettering in the background paper. As Thomas loves to craft with Duck Brand Tape, I thought what better embellishment than colorful Duck Tape on the layout!

Next came the bright, funky arrows to symbolize moving “onward” to 6th grade. Aligning each strip of colorful Duck Tape was super easy with the Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square. And, ensuring an equal amount of space between each of the arrows was also simple using the tool. I created this layout in no time at all, with no stress about aligning things - yet the result is a perfectly aligned project. All I can say is wow!
