Mail Those Cards :)

Happy Sunday!! I hope you are all finding ways to deal with our temporary changes in the world. I personally have never been so on top of laundry in my life! 🙂 So that’s a perk. (Sure it helps there is so much less laundry, but let’s skip that part, shall we?) 😉

Today’s first new card is using cutie little Paper Smooches ♥️!! This card uses all the following Paper Smooches goodies: SunnyvilleSunnyville Icon DiesInhale Exhale and Fab Frames.

It also features the Rainbow Sherbet paper. Goodness–wouldn’t this be so sweet to find in your mailbow? Love this little smile!

Here’s a quick little video link to me coloring this little cutie sun and cloud from Paper Smooches: jilldhawkins on IG. It is FAR from perfect, but i enjoy it all nonetheless. 🙂

Next up, I thought I’d just share these cards I have been making and finishing up to mail out. I have likely mailed out over 50 cards since this all started and I have more to send next week. But I am definitely going to need to MAKE more!! 🙂 I think it’s the best time to send cards right now. ❤ A little touch of the outside world.

I love using a bunch of different postage stamps too. 🙂

If you follow me on Instagram, these are not new to you likely, but thought I’d share them here on my blog too.

First up, here’s some fun from Concord & 9th!

This was a promo set Concord & 9th was giving away with orders, but THIS SET HERE is fun and delightful as well….I may or may not have this one too. 🙂 shhhhh! 🙂 It’s called Rainbow Wishes (stamps) and Rainbow Wishes (dies). You can get both the stamps and dies together HERE.


Once last handful of cards– I don’t own this Paper Hug die from The Stamp Market, but I borrowed it from a friend on a crafty weekend to create a handful of cards, many moons ago and just finished them all up! 🙂
Hope your day is a good one and you can find some time to mail out some sunshine too! You can find fun envelopes from Taylored Expressions HERE and you can even order postage stamps online–if you need them! Just sayin’. ❤

Take care–Jill 🙂

Make Today Great!

Happy Friday!! Make Today Great! And I am with a little help from Paper Smooches ♥️!!

For this card, I used Paper Smooches Caffeinated, Caffeinated icon dies, Sunnyville (sentiment), Hearts dies, Half Moon Paper, and Rainbow Sherbet paper. I pieced it all together, scored the card panel and added some stitching to pull it all together. ❤

I can’t remember the last time I did too much paper piecing like this and I so enjoy how it turned out. Such fun to make and I can’t wait to pop it in the mail! 🙂 I just ❤ this little PS Coffee Cup!!

Be sure to check out the new February Paper Smooches release! The Paper Smooches Design Team will be sharing the March Release next week!! I can’t wait to share the fun with you all!


Hope your day and weekend is GREAT!

Take care–Jill 🙂
