If there’s one thing that every crafter should never have to live without, it’s a fantastic set of pens. Today’s steal the American Crafts Slick Writers are just that! Not only are these particular pens fantastic for journaling, they are also the very best pens for writing on slick surfaces. This means no more smearing when writing on overlays or even glass.

Aside from the American Crafts Slick Writers, I happened upon another pretty incredible crafting tool to create my cards for this week. I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of the card layering templates from Kiwi Lane Designs. In fact, I have to pretty much credit this week’s sketch to the inspiration provided in the packaging of the card layering templates.

The American Crafts Slick Writers were the perfect addition to add a little extra something to my cards this week. I used them for adding some lines around the edges of the front of my cards to give them a little more dimension.

Now it’s time to announce the winner of our July Monday Card Madness random giveaway.
