Hello!  WELCOME to a Perfectly Odd Hop!  We have partnered up with the ladies from Some Odd Girl to bring you something fun and different!

We had the pleasure of meeting some of the Odd Girls 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 15 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 Some Odd Girl, you are in for a TREAT!  They offer clear and digital stamps, cut files and new accessories, and they are cute and quirky to boot!  Once you see their unique style, you’ll always be able to spot them!

Be sure to comment at EVERY stop and you'll be eligible to win one of TWO prize packs that include one Perfect Paper Crafting tool and one Some Odd Girl stamp set of your choice!

I made a couple of cards using Some Odd Girl's Under the Sea Mae and my Perfect Layers rulers.  I love this stamp set!  Not only are the girls gorgeous but that narwhal and sea horse are adorable.

This is my first card.  I paired a mermaid and a sea animal friend for each card.  I decided to use just a simple mat with my 3/16th width ruler.  I used some gelatos for the background after I embossed it with some swirls on watercolor paper.  Also added some gesso and stamped the shell on there as well but might be hard to see in this photo.  I added lots of sparkle and some rhinestones too.

Here is a close up photo.

This is my second card and I went with a similar design just different colors.  I love how this one turned out too.  I had a lot of fun coloring up these images and just experimenting with the backgrounds.

And for additional inspiration, visit the Some Odd Girl blog all week to see how the Odd Girls combined their stamps with our Perfect Paper Crafting tools!  You might even see some guest appearances from some of our talented team!  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. 

Next on the hop is Alexis!

Have a Perfectly Odd day, and good luck!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!
