Paper Smooches challenge- December project #2

Hello, friends:}
Today I'm sharing another creation for the Paper Smooches "Winter-Holiday-Hanukkah-New Years" challenge for December.

I challenged myself to make 15 projects for December's challenge---- I aim high! I'm hoping I can do it... so far this project will make 2 out of 15. I've got a long way to go 😬 

I thought that a fringe tree would be super fun to make (I was inspired by THIS scrapbook page). I tend to forget how much trouble I have when cutting fringe- think back to my fringe pineapple HERE. Note to self: DO NOT cut fringe unless you glue it down- all of it! LOL! Other than the fringe... this card was SUPER easy to make! PS stamps/dies: Fringe and Christmas Tree

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!

Virtual Smooches: Quick Word Wrap (idea #3)

Hello, friends:}

***Click HERE for the Paper Smooches December sneak peek and GIVEAWAY! Deadline to enter to win is Sunday, Nov. 27th!!! 

Today is my day to share a video over on the  Paper Smooches video blog- Virtual Smooches! **Note: Thursdays and/or Fridays are my NEW days to post on the VS blog:) 

ANNNNNNNNNNNNNND I'm back after a long break- it's been crazy here and then when I went to upload my video to YouTube- it literally took 24 hours to load! Plus they changed all the links/buttons/etc. I already struggle with technology... why are they changing it on me again!?!? 

Anyway- I created another project using my "quick word wrap" idea. Click HERE for my original video. 

I know Thanksgiving is today and technically over... but you can also create these using Christmas word dies, birthday word dies, and many other sentiments from Paper Smooches! And you can use them on candles, cups, mugs, jars, boxes, candies, etc! The uses for this project idea are NUMEROUS


THANKS so much for stopping by--- be sure to go HERE for my video! Be blessed:}

Today I'm sharing a project using the NEW Winter Sampler stamp set. This set has SOOOOOOO many sentiments, as well as a couple of snowflakes, stars, hearts, and a tiny tree image! That means that the possibility and combos of sentiments and images is endless with this set! 

I used 2 different sentiments from this set for my card today- I just loooooove that gingerbread man hanging on the NEW Cozy Coffee die!!! ***NOTE: I do not drink coffee... but I have a feeling that I will be using this die a lot! I absolutely love this card- the paper design (love how those red patterned papers are peeking out from the side/bottom), the stitched flourish die, the vellum speech bubble... I love it all!

Paper Smooches challenge- November project #4

Hello, friends:}

I'm back from our vacation- it was soooooooooooo much fun! I'll have to post photos later because I need to share a quick project that I made for the Paper Smooches "giving thanks" challenge for November.



I needed a card for a friend who shared a chair with me last week. I was inspired by a project by Laurie Willson- it was simple and perfect for this "thank you" creation. I used some old Basic Grey Persimmon papers with the PS stamps Vogue Abode and Many Thanks. Trav says this card fits his "Trav Card Style" of stamp, ribbon, done... I think it kind of does;) He doesn't know that I took a couple of extra steps to color the chair, fussy cut the pillow, add the brad, etc! LOL! 

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 challenge- November project #3

Hello, friends:}

We are leaving for another trip today--- so I'll try to keep this short:) 

Today I'm sharing another creation for the Paper Smooches "giving thanks" challenge for November.



I wanted to make a fun and fresh card--- to show that you don't have to make a project that is "fall-ish" in color or theme for this challenge. I used some new washi tape by Carpe Diem and a cork bird (Trav's fav!). I also used the following  PS stamps/dies: Heartfelt Thanks die and Many Thanks. Super fun and perfect for anyone:) **NOTE: the only thing I don't like is how dark this photo is... I thought it was good the other day when I took it... but now it's not good. Eh! Again, I'm not a photographer or tech savvy! I really need lessons! 

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! 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

Paper Smooches challenge- November project #2

Hello, friends:}

Today I'm sharing another creation for the Paper Smooches "giving thanks" challenge for November.



I bought this paper pad from Wester's Pages specifically for the bird paper! LOVE it! I did a bit of layering for the papers, feathers, and sequins. I masked the sentiment using the 'forgive' stamp- so fun! This is a fairly simple card- stamp, ribbon, done... well not quite😜 LOL!  PS stamps/dies: I Blank YouFeathers 2 diesand Thanks Word die

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!
