{PPC/TE} Blog Hop!


Hey there! I am super excited today to be paired up with one of Taylored Expressions Designers for a bit of an unconventional blog hop of sorts! 
Taylored Expressions and Perfect Paper Crafting are joining forces for some 'Crazy Dayz' of hopping! So instead of just one main Blog Hop, you'll get lots of different days to hop around to various designers blogs! Fun, huh?





I've used the really cute stamp and die set from TE called Love Bugs. I coloured with copics and added a jar die cut of thin vellum over top of the main jar die. It gives it a bit of a softer affect. I didn't adhere the vellum down (except under the lid on the top) so that you can lift it up to expose the love bugs underneath! Which have a bit of glossy accents and glitter on their lil' bums and wings, and gloss on the heart as well.

I know you are thinking 'WOW, she is genius!' right about now, but I cannot take credit for this one- I swiped the idea from my pal Sarah, who had me pining over this set ages ago :)


I used my trusty Perfect Paper Crafting tools: Perfect Layers Mini and Perfect Cutting Mat to get those oh-so-precise-layers! All of the panels are matted in 1/16" black CS. Use Jenny5% to receive a discount on all of your PPC products HERE!




Now head over to Taylored Expressions designer Kendra's blog to see what she has to show you! And remember to leave comments and 'like' Perfect Paper Crafting on Facebook for your chance to win! Both of these fabulous companies are giving away a $50 gift certificate!



Note: My layout is from the Deconstructed Sketch (#158) from a few weeks ago…I'm also adding this card to the Catered Crop Vellum challenge that's going on right now!

In love with every part of this card and can't wait to try out the vellum idea. Love how these rulers make is so easy, it would be nice to try out for OWH cards.
