Hello, friends:}

I'm back on the Paper Smooches blog sharing the Sunday Recap and a new creation for the September ANYTHING GOES challenge

I'm back on the Paper Smooches blog sharing the Sunday Recap and a new creation for the September ANYTHING GOES challenge
I"ve made a simple little card for a special friend who is turning one this month. Assembly was easy: add washi tape to card base, stamp sentiment on punched circle and attach to card, stamp sentiment below washi tape, die cut number, outline number using a punch tool and then stitch around number! EASY! OH--- and add some silver splatters :) Supplies include the  PS Numbers dies and Birthday Bash and Digits stamps sets.

Paper Smooches challenge- September 2016

Hello, friends:}

Today we start a NEW Paper Smooches monthly challenge. The challenge for September is...... Anything Goes

Sometimes you just need to have an "anything goes" "free for all" "easy" challenge! LOL 😁

I created this birthday card for a family member- there are LOTS of birthday cards that I need in the next month... you might be seeing a lot of birthday creations for my challenge submissions! LOL! I used the PS Delightful Greetings, Birthday BashHeart Frame, and Linked Hearts stamps/dies. This card came together fairly quickly- layer patterned paper, add stitching, add die cut embellishments, stamp sentiments, add final embellies (enamel dots, gold splatter, etc.). Easy! 

That's it for me today! I hope you will join in the fun--- you could win a $50 gift certificate to the PS store!!! Be sure to stop by HERE to link up and to play along!

Paper Smooches- August FRIENDSHIP challenge #5

Hello, friends:}

This card was posted yesterday on the Paper Smooches blog- it was my last project for the August challenge!   Picture: Credit

Trav has been such a huge help lately with my creations for these challenges- he has inspired me with design ideas and even helped me physically create the cards! 

This week he saw my new washi tape (QUESTION: don't you just looooooooove those washi tape people?!!?!?! I DO!!) that I bought and said I needed to make a card with a million of those washi tape people with the sentiment "one in a million". 

I did the best I could with a space no bigger than 4.25 inches by 4 inches! LOL 😂   
This is a simple card with simple supplies-----> I used: PS Heart dies, Word Salad, and the NEW PS Arrows dies (available August 30th). 

That's it for me today! I hope you will join in the fun--- you could win a $50 gift certificate to the PS store!!! Be sure to stop by HERE to link up and to play along!

Today I'm sharing a project using the NEW Heart Frame die. This die is larger, and once I saw it, I knew I had to make a scrapbook layout with it as my center piece! 

I absolutely looooooooove those hearts at the bottom! I love that mustard yellow with stripes... and the newspaper one... and even that cross soft teal heart! They are the perfect embellishment for this page! I even used the leftover heart outline from the teal heart at the top of the page- it was exactly what that corner needed! It finished this page and look perfectly.
Text: We tried to use Extreme Sharpie Marker on our lock- but it didn't work! It was worn off before we got to France. Our love will definitely outlast this lock and written date! 


I also used the following PS stamps/dies: Feathered Friends (Sept. release)Holiday CheerDigitsLovely ThoughtsNotebook PaperAmpersands, and Pinked Circles. I probably could have used more PS goodies... but I had to stop:) LOL!
