Paper Smooches: April 2016 RECAP

Hello friends:) 
Today is my last post for catching up with Paper Smooches release projects! This time I'm sharing cards I made using the April 2016 release stamps/dies. I'm so sorry I've been sharing so much----> I was really behind! 

Here's what I created using the new stamps and dies, including the PS Smooches stamps, Dad Icons, Honeycomb die, and Lattice die
I love that this card--- and to be honest, I wasn't sure I liked the Lattice die set! But now I'm in love and can't wait to create more backgrounds like this! LOVE LOVE LOVE
You really need to stop by the PS blog DAILY! Not only is there inspiration on the PS blog but there are lots of giveaways at all times! Kim is sooooooo kind and generous! 

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by ❤️   I hope you have a blessed day!

Paper Smooches: June challenge #1

Hello, friends:}

Today I'm on the Paper Smooches blog----> click HERE for all the details of what's going on with PS!! 
I'm also sharing my first card for the June layers challenge. This past week was a bit busy for me, and I was unable to post this on time. SO SORRY! 


I created a simple layered card... layering the following: 

  • papers
  • stitching
  • stamping

I used a couple of PS stamps/dies including Natural Beauties stamps and Flag Tags dies. I love how this card turned out! It's perfect for our sweet neighbor that allowed us to borrow some of his gardening tools to complete our landscaping (dirt, rocks, and plants). Trav (it's not done yet... just a few more things!). 
This is picture of just part of our landscaping... who knew we had SOOOOOOO much landscaping!?!? 
Poppie and Olsen kind-of helped :) 
And then we had some super sweet little helpers yesterday! 
That's it for me today! I hope you will join in the fun with our LAYERS challenge--- you could win a $50 gift certificate to the PS store!!! Be sure to stop by HERE to link up and to play along!
