TCM Blog Hop with Perfect Paper Crafting


Hello!  I'm here today as part of a cross-promotional blog hop featuring The Craft's Meow stamps and Perfect Paper Crafting products!  The TCM Design Team were all given a tool of our choice to play with; here's the card I made using it and my TCM stamps from our Under the Tree set.

TCM Blog Hop with PPC Nov 18

I chose the Perfect Layers Border Tool #1, and used it to frame up my stamped image.  It really is precise, and very easy to use!  All my papers are from the Echo Park Christmas This & That paper pad, and I colored my stack of presents using that striped paper as a guide for my colors.  I kept my design very simple today to show off the stamp and the tool.

The Craft's Meow is currently having a HUGE sale on retiring stamp sets HERE.  And Perfect Paper Crafting is offering a 5% discount on their tools for all hoppers.  The code to enter at checkout is meow5%.

Don't forget to leave comments at all the hop stops, because there are TWO $50.00 gift certificates to be won - one from Perfect Paper Crafting and one from The Craft's Meow!  If you happen to get lost along the way, the hop starts HERE and you can find a listing of all the stops there, too.  Now, hop along to my talented teamie Sharri's blog.
