Taylored Expressions | Perfect Paper Crafting Partnership

Hello! Taylored Expressions and Perfect Paper Crafting have partnered together for a month long blog hop. Taylor kicked off the hop on Monday on the TE blog and now it's my turn! Jenny Gropp from the Perfect Paper Crafting DT also has a project to show you that I'm sure you will love! Before you head over there, I have a project to show you!

If you are unfamiliar with the Perfect Paper Crafting products, you will want to visit their site and watch their how-to videos (HERE). They are very informative and visually show how easy it is to use their products. This was my first time using their products, and I was very impressed with how easy they are to use and loved the results. I worked with the Perfect Layers Mini and used the Perfect Cutting Mat. Combined, these made adding mats to my layers super simple and I love how precise they are!

I made this card for my daughter, Sabrina's Extended School Year (ESY) teacher. The sentiment is from Love Teaching. I used Mojo 254 for my layout (with some minor modifications). Here's a detail shot:

Here is a look at the Perfect Layers Mini in action (sort of). I wasn't able to get a clear shot balancing the camera and the craft knife, so below I'm showing you how everything looks right before you make the cut. Once you align the lip of the ruler against the image layer, you simply run your craft knife down the side of the ruler.

In addition to project inspiration, there are also prizes! One lucky winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to Taylored Expressions AND a $50 gift certificate to Perfect Paper Crafting! Please visit the TE blog and the Perfect Paper Crafting blog for all of the details. You have until tomorrow, July 18, 2014, @ 8 PM PST to leave a comment for a chance to win this fabulous prize! Also, be sure to check out both blog posts for a coupon code to use in both stores!
