It's a Frame-n-Anchor!

Ahoy there!

I'm back with more from the latest Paper Smooches release...

While my watercolor wash background was still damp, I randomly sprinkled gold embossing powder and heat set it for a mod sea spray look.

I'll be back tomorrow with more Paper Smooches, so until then - mwah!

Guesting with Your Next Stamp

I'm so excited to be guest designing with Your Next Stamp for the month of May and hope you'll enjoy following along with me as I get busy with some of my old favorite YNS stamps and dies and show you a few things from their upcoming May release. Visit the YNS Blog for the whole story!

Today's card is also following the current CAS(E) Sketch challenge which I adore!

After stamping, die cutting and assembling and positioning the tag, I felt like the red card base needed 'something', so I scored parallel lines vertically and then again horizontally, stopping just past the intersection of the two. I think I just might be trying this little trick again soon!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today, and please come back soon!


Paper Smooches One of a Kind

I was so fortunate to be asked to fill in at Paper Smooches this month and have a few more projects to share this week from their May release. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them.

Thanks for stopping and come back soon...

(why not?) Celebrate Your Day with Pink Flamingos

Hi friends! I've got a little something to share with you using some old and new Paper Smooches product. The card I'm sharing today features that fun acetate smoosh technic (that I can't stop using, sorry) along with those silly cute flamingos from My Peeps. Don't you think this would make a fun Mother's Day card?

Ten new dies and 2 stamp sets were just released April 30th, so hop on over to Paper Smooches and take a look-see at all the great new stuff that you're gonna love for upcoming Father's Day, birthdays and even Mother's Day (in my funny little head).

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Smooches May Release Blog Hop

It's Pep Rally week and we are here today to share a sampling of the NEW Paper Smooches MAY release with you!  TWO new stamps and TEN new dies will be available to purchase on April 30th at 8:00pm pacific time. Once our release goes live, you will find our new products HERE.  
To add extra fun to our blog hop...we are offering up a prize! 
The prize - a $25 gift code to choose what you like at the PS online store.

Here are the details:
  • FOUR winners will be chosen at RANDOM from any of the design team blogs and the PS Blog to win the $25. prize.
  • Just leave a comment on any of the design team blogs listed below or the PS blog for your chance to win!  (you do not need to comment on all blogs to qualify but it increases your changes)

  • Please check the Paper Smooches blog on Monday, April 27th to see if you are one of the FOUR lucky winners.  

 I'm sharing the Tooth Fairy Die which I used to create a soft and sweet pillow for the big 'exchange' (wink). The Tooth Fairy Die set comes complete with a pocket die perfectly sized to hold a tooth. I left the top portion of the tooth die cut 'open' for tooth fairy loot to be tucked inside.

The Tooth Fairy Die was screaming to be made into a shaped card, so I obliged. This one happens to be a 'girl' tooth complete with a fuzzy pink skirt and crown. The scalloped edge of the skirt is the (new) Waves Die and cat glasses stamp from Incognito.

Here's a list of designers in today's blog hop (can't wait to hop along with you):

Administrative Professionals' Day - Thank You!

As is often the case (and I love an excuse to get crafty), I was once again asked to create cards for our Administrative Professionals for their big day this tomorrow. I enlisted the help of my Silhouette Studio software and personal printer.

Use your Silhouette files to print (no cut) customized cards and crafts.

Silhouette files:

Century Schoolbook
Halo Handletter

It's not too late to create a sweet card for the administrative professional in your life!
