MarkerPOP & Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Hop


Hi, and welcome to the MarkerPOP! & Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Hop!

The Perfect Layers designers are teaming up with the talented designers at MarkerPOP!, the home of premium markers plus lots more.  With projects created using Perfect Layers crafting tools and awesome coloring tools from MarkerPOP.com we hope to wow you with some gorgeous creations today!

Now, let's talk prizes!


Hop along with us today and leave some blog love for our Perfect Layers Designers and the MarkerPOP! designers to be eligible to win.   We at Perfect Layers will be giving away a $50 gift certificate to the Perfect Paper Crafting store.  MarkerPOP! will be giving away  a set of Perfect Tears Tools.  Two winners will be selected randomly from comments left on the DT blogs.  You have until Saturday, May 25th to play along -  Blog Hop winners will be announced on Sunday, May 26th.


This is the card I created to give to my mom for Mother's Day.  I guess the fact that I am the mother of 4 myself and laundry is all I ever seem to do; this Whimsy Stamps image, Lemon Pepper's Laundry Day carried by MarkerPOP! just kind of spoke to me and said, "MOM!" :)  LOL

After I had finished coloring, I really didn't want anything to take away from the image.  So I opted for a CAS (clean and simple) approach.  I started with a white cardstock base and layered it with August Rose cardstock from PTI.  My mat layers were made using my Perfect Layers ruler tool.  I added a border with a Martha Steward Arch Lattice punch, a scrap of designer paper from MME Lavender, a bit of twine, a button and a scrap of canvas.  

I just adored the way this turned out and had the hardest time giving it away.  But since it was going to my Mom, I knew it was going to be LOVED and cherished!!  xoxo
