Some Weekend Cute!

Happy Weekend All! πŸ™‚

I meant to post yesterday, but instead, I’m here today! I am so excited to share this first card! I love this little Doodle! Eeep! The cuteness!! πŸ™‚

Oh my word! ❀ him! πŸ™‚ This sentiment is from PS’s awesome Kindness Sampler.

Another card I made with Dinky Doodles. For these cards, I used both Paper Smooches Dinky Doodles 1 and Dinky Doodles 2.

I thought the TREmendous sentiment from Paper Smooches Huge Hugs 2 set worked perfectly and punfully! πŸ™‚ Also, I used the newer Flower Frames dies!Β I have those die cuts all over my desk right now. All. Over! Haaaa!

And last but not least, I thought I’d share the anniversary card I made for my hubby this weekend!

I made this background with watercolors WEEKS ago and then it just sat on my desk. I masked off this wonky frame and I’m pretty darn sure I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors (I can’t imagine what else that is? LOL!). They are still super awesome in my book. πŸ™‚ I colored the birds with Zig Clean Color markers.

This cute little bird set is PS’s Feathered Friends (and dies) and the I Love You die is a great staple for anyone’s stash! <3!

All the new Paper Smooches can be found over at theΒ  PS online store!

Have an awesome weekend!

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

Paper Smooches Monsters!

Hello all! I’m popping in with some super fun Monster cards from Paper SmoochesΒ September release! You can find all the new productsΒ HERE.Β 

I try not to pick favorites, but obviously these little guys have made their way to the top of my list! πŸ™‚ These are the new Monster Dies! This first photo is a stack of Thank You notes I made for my son’s birthday! Eeeeeep! He filled out the insides (so diligently too! wow!) and I made the outsides. πŸ™‚ Teamwork! He usually colors his own, but I like to try to get them out in a timely fashion, and we were behind this year. πŸ™‚ These were pretty quick and easy, and I think they turned out SO fun! πŸ™‚

This next little number, I made to put in his lunchbox today. ❀

Such a little cutie monster! πŸ™‚

For both the cards above, I used Paper Smooches Huge Hugs 2 for the sentiments. Such a great set!

Oh, and also one of my favorite PS Tags, For You Tag die. πŸ™‚

And last but not least, I thought I’d share this card again, in case you missed the DT Hop. Gah! Such fun!

These new dies are called Monster Dies and the sentiment is from the new Halloween Sampler.

Have a great weekend!!

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

Cornucopia of projects! :)

Happy Wednesday!
I’m usually pretty good about posting all my projects on my blog, but this last month + has been a little crazier than normal. I always try to figure out if it’s just the new normal, or if it is just busier that usual. I’m hoping for the later this time! πŸ™‚
Anywho–here is a few cards/projects I have made recently that haven’t made it here yet. πŸ™‚
First up, this fun card using Paper Smooches Huge Hugs and dies AND Huge Hugs 2! This was for my son’s last day of school this year. πŸ™‚
I actually used my Scor-Tape as a stencil. It was sitting on my desk, so it worked out well! I just brushed some Distress Ink in there and then gave it a little water spritz for some texture. Fun!
The whale and fish are covered in Glossy Accents! Love that little addition. I think I may go through a whole bottle this month. LOL. πŸ™‚
Here are projects I created for teachers and staff at school this Spring:
Love how fun these are! I used Paper Smooches FruitasticΒ and the Thanks So Much Die. For the tags below, I used the Paper Smooches Pencil Dies and the Lovely Thoughts stamp set for the sentiment.
Here is a quick pick of some tags I stamped up for some crafty friends. Love this little bunny from Paper Smooches Pineapple Crush! (I didn’t think to take a more finessed photo, but I thought they are too cute not to share!)
These next cards use a combination of Paper Smooches Pineapple Crush stamps and Ellen Hutson’s Wonky Backdrops. Such fun!! πŸ™‚ (I also used the retired a Paper Smooches set for the sentiment, but this one is an excellent sub in, Many Thanks.)
This next card uses Winnie and Walter’sΒ  Framed and Our Town. Love how this turned out. I made it at a crafty retreat and I used someone’s stencil for the background too. But I didn’t write down the name of it. πŸ™‚
Next up, is this card I made using WPlus9 Feathers and Florals and Avery Elle’s Many Thanks. This floral set was sent to me from some crafty friends, and I’m so glad to have inked it up!! πŸ™‚ I’ve been using a lot of flowers lately!? Must be the season πŸ˜‰ .
And last but not least, here are some teacher cards I made last fall. These great teacher stamps are all from Lil’ Inker Designs. LOVE these so very much! πŸ™‚ Again, I borrowed these great products from some crafty friends. I only wished they all lived closer to create together more often. ❀
Alrighty! I hope you have enjoyed this mixed bag of projects I had yet to blog! I like to keep my blog up to date. It’s a great way to track my projects if I ever want to look back . πŸ™‚
Thank you for stopping by again today! πŸ™‚
Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

A Ear-y Twist & Dinos! :)

I thought I would use the new Paper Smooches Dog die in a different way too: Ears or mountains?! Haaaa!

I had this one in my head and had to get it out! I also used the Huge Hugs! Seriously, this Dino: ❀ ❀ ! I colored the Dino with Copic markers and gave him and his balancing hearts some dimension with foam tape. I used my white pen to snow cap the mountains.jill_cat-and-dog-die_huge-hugs_00
For this card, I also used bits from the following: Heart Frame Die, Feathered Friends Icon dies, and Snowdrifts dies.
Here are a few more Dino-mite cards to enjoy using the new Dinosaur Die! Once I started, I couldn’t stop using him/her! πŸ™‚
This one also uses the Tag Stitched die. This little guy is Wild! He is riding the Bicycle die πŸ™‚Also, the sentiment is from the new Huge Hugs 2 set. ❀ Paper Smooches sentiments! Of course, I had to make this little cutie a girl too! πŸ™‚ This is made with the Love Word 2 die, Heart Frame die, and the Dainty Flowers 2 die.
She is too cute!! Eeeep! I love the navy and pink together.

You will find all the new Paper Smooches productsΒ HERE. Β 

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a Dino-mite weekend!! πŸ™‚
