Thank you, Paper Smooches!

I have SO enjoyed having the privilege to be the February Guest Designer at Paper Smooches!! Happy 5th Anniversary to Kim and her Paper Smooches!! 🙂 So many great designs in those 5 years! Be sure to follow the celebration on the PS Blog!

My first card uses the new Thank You die. This is such a great basic to have. I was eager and thankful to use this! 😉 I also used the fun Bicycle die.

hawkins_jill_thank you_wmI cut the strips of dark gray and then started stacking the bright Thank You die cuts. In the end, it sort of reminded me of a school chalkboard and learning cursive writing! Ha! And: Rainbow. *sigh* 😉

hawkins_jill_thank you_00_wmNext up: I was also really itching to use the Bird House dies again. I think there are so many more possibilities ahead with these little cuties!! 🙂

hawkins_jill_imissyourface_wmI mixed the dies with the the new Fun & Flirty stamp set and the Bitty Bungalows. Eeep! 🙂

hawkins_jill_imissyourface_00_wmI thought the birds wanted a few little add-ons. 😉

Paper Smooches fun!

Fortunately, I have not been voted off the island as February Guest Designer at Paper Smooches!! 😉 Such fun to use some of my favorites!! Hop over to the PS Blog today!

I will not mention how long this first card took to land on. I tinkered and tinkered and tinkered, and then #boom. Funny how the simplest things take me quite a long time! 😉

The sentiments and fonts in the new Fun & Flirty stamp set can truly hold a card, as you can see here:   hawkins_jill_wonderful_wmI mean, really. That’s fun. 🙂

hawkins_jill_wonderful_00_wmFor my second card this week, I used the fun new Wine Glass die! Got things shakin’! 🙂

hawkins_jill_amazing_wmYou are Ridiculously Amazing. My sentiments exactly. Go figure! 🙂 hawkins_jill_amazing_00_wmI’m clearly in a Distress Ink watercolor mode, and the results are fun. I decided I don’t enjoy  when I make cards too “neat”, so this technique is fitting for me to use! If that makes any sense, at all. LOL 🙂

Love Love Love this Fun & Flirty sentiment set! So fortunate to have it on my desk! 🙂

Paper Smooches! :)

Have I mentioned how excited I am to be the February Guest Designer at Paper Smooches!! It’s like going over to hang out at one of your favorite places. 🙂 Be sure to hop over to the PS Blog today!

I simply love the sentiments and fonts in the new Fun & Flirty stamp set. I think I’ve stamped almost every sentiment already! 🙂

Here is my first card this week: I masked and inked a hexagon for the background. 

hawkins_jill_hey beautiful_00_wmThis card also uses the new Rain Boot die! Just so fun and fitting for Spring!! 🙂 hawkins_jill_hey beautiful_wmWhen I saw this next sentiment, I couldn’t wait to stamp it! 🙂

hawkins_jill_favorite human_wm I initially did the panel, with the peeks of color. Couldn’t decide if I should just leave it alone or what? So naturally, I stamped the little guys from Space Cadet, creating a fun little backdrop! 😉hawkins_jill_favorite human_00_wm_Love that simple font. ❤

Paper Smooches supplies: Fun & Flirty, Rain Boots Dies, Tiny Hearts dies, Market Fresh, and Space Cadet.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll see you again next Wednesday for more Paper Smooches fun! 🙂

As a PS Super Fan, I am completely thrilled and honored to be the February Guest Designer at Paper Smooches!! Total happenstance that it is also Paper Smooches 5th Anniversary! Hooray! Be sure to follow the celebration on the PS Blog!

Such fun to get happy mail, with the new Paper Smooches release inside! I think even my mailbox was smiling. 😉

For my first cards this month, I used the new Birdhouse Dies. They are so tweet!! I die cut so many, and I’m tinkering with them on my desk to make more! 🙂

hawkins_jill_happy hello_wm“A Happy Hello” is from the new stamp set, Fun & Flirty, which makes me so happy!! I’ve always been a huge fan of Paper Smooches sentiments, and this one is an awesome addition to the line up! 🙂

Of course, never one to stop making things, I mixed it up with these same dies and stamps to make a second little number:

hawkins_jill_OMG_wm^^ This one pretty much sums up how I yelped when I saw my card for February HERE! OMG! I’m still reeling with happy! Squeeeee! 🙂
