Monday SOG and Perfect Layers Blog Hop

Happy Monday!

WELCOME to A Perfectly Odd Hop!  We Odd Girls have partnered up with the lovely ladies from Perfect Paper Crafting to bring you something fun and different!
PPChop
We had the pleasure of getting together with Perfect Paper Crafting at CHA in Vegas, and a collaborative event was an absolute NO-BRAINER!  Would the Odd Girls like to try out some fun tools?  Heck yes!  Does the Perfect Paper Crafting team want to play with some cute stamps?  Sure thing!  And it’s a match made in heaven…
Today, both teams come together to bring you a fabulously inspiring BLOG HOP that will run through Sunday, November 17th.  There are 16 stops along the way including the main blogs, and PLENTY of inspiration for you to enjoy, so we hope you have as much fun as we’ve all had in this little partnership!
If you’re not already familiar with Perfect Paper Crafting, you are in for a TREAT!  Their tools allow crafters to get perfect placement of their mats and edges, easily shape and layer, and AIRBRUSH for gorgeous effects on their projects!  The Odd Girls enjoyed playing with their Perfect Layers, Perfect Squares, and Perfect Ruler for this little event…  You should have arrived from Jenn Cochran's blog , but in case you get lost or distracted along the way, here’s the hop order:

Do you want to know what was  one of the first scrapbooking tools I bought over 8 years ago was?  It was the Perfect Layers Rulers.  I totally love them and use them all the time in my crafting!  So you want to see my project?????
For my project I used the Perfect Layers  ruler and used it to form my mats. I love the look of a perfect mat and you get that EVERY single time with these rulers!  I used Big Day Tobie, a clear stamp set.  I colored him with my spectrum noir markers.  I really like how the mats in black really make the pattern paper pop and they really just add a lot to the card.  It really defines all the paper.   

Be sure to comment at EVERY stop and you’ll be eligible to win one of TWO prize packs that include one of these tools and a stamp set of your choice!  Your next stop is Katie Perry's blog.
We’ll be sharing inspiration throughout the week so you can see how the Odd Girls have used the Perfect Paper Crafting tools, and maybe a little guest project here and there from our partners in this hop!  You have until Sunday at midnight EST to leave your comments, and Some Odd Girl and Perfect Paper Crafting will each draw one winner, to be announced on Monday, November 18th.  Have a Perfectly Odd day, and good luck!

Also if you want to go shopping over at Perfect Paper Crafting we have a discount code for  you:   if you use the code SOG5% you will get 5% off when shopping at Perfect Paper Crafting.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back tomorrow with the new digi release from Some Odd Girl.  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Your card is so cute. Fun, bright colours.
I never did have the perfect layers. Actually never even knew what they were until about a few weeks ago.
When I started scrapbooking about 15 years ago, I just used what I had and didn't know about all the great supplies that were out there until about 4 or 5 years ago…now I have way to many supplies, lol.
