A Happy Hello

We meet again! Every Friday! 🙂

Today I’m sharing another little cutie from Paper Smooches! For this card, I used the following Paper Smooches products: In Stitches, Fun and Flirty,  and Falling for You stamps (and dies).

Eeeeeep! I SO ❤ this little monster!! 🙂 And I ❤ how these heart stamps work together! I actually made an error lining these up, but I made it very less obvious by placing my sentiment and monster where I did. Wink wink! I didn’t realize it until I had done all my stamping and I about screamed. LOL! But then I just smoooooothed it over. Usually you can salvage your errors. Usually. Unless you drop an ink pad on your project…then, mmmmm not so much.

Hope your weekend is AWESOME! We have LOTS of snow here! LOTS!

Take care–Jill 🙂

Hello and happy ALMOST weekend!

Happy 7th Anniversary to Paper Smooches!! Whooohooo! And I have loved all 7! I am ALWAYS amazed at how many awesome sets and dies Kim has whipped up in those 7 years. So many favorites! ❤

Have you checked out the Paper Smooches Blog recently? You should hop over there and read some fun stuff. Kim is on a new adventure, and for the time being, the DT is going to be sharing new cards we’ve made with previously released Paper Smooches goodies! I ❤ this so much because I get to sift through my beloved PS stash and use them!! I hope you enjoy our fun too! 🙂

For this card, I used many Paper Smooches products from the archives! Fun and Flirty, Geo Graphic, Dainty Flowers, Dainty Flowers 2, and Shopping Bag.

I just stacked up some fun foam and put that in the bag. It holds the bag up, as well as allowed me to tuck flowers in there. 🙂 I just think this one is super fun! 🙂

Maybe this encourages you to revive some of your favorite products too!

Thank you for stopping by and always for your kind comments. Hope your football team wins the Super Bowl! 😉

PS Layered Hearts

Having fun with the June Paper Smooches Challenge! 🙂 Layers!

This is a card that really needs to be enjoyed in person, as you can see below, a photo straight on isn’t quite as fun as holding it on an angle.

hawkins_jill_all kinds_00_wmI used a bright yellow, a poppy orange, and a mint color to layer these hearts.hawkins_jill_all kinds_0_wmI thought I was photo challenged the other day? Ha! This brought things to another level of challenging. 🙂

Love all the fun hidden layers. So very cool. 😉 When I finished, I thought of Emily Leiphart’s super cool layered bike card (HERE) she made for Paper Smooches many months back. Emily, your inspiration is seeping into my subconscious! 🙂 Love that–thanks!
