Halloween Treats!

Happy Friday! If you are looking for my Paper Smooches October Pep Rally Blog Hop post (phew! That’s a title!), please click HERE to get THERE! 🙂


Today, I’m sharing these super-duper fun treat bags I whipped up for Halloween! I made these pretty quick and easy, so they could be mass-produced for giving! These all used Paper Smooches spooky new Halloween Card dies! As you can see, “spooky” is also translated to *super cute* here. 😉

I’m still looking forward to making a few more of these and some quick little Halloween cards to mail. Check out the Paper Smooches shop for really fun examples! I freaking love Savannah O’Gwynn’s little ghost card! Oh my word! And then Kim made a cutie monster Frankenstein! Gah!! And Laurie Schmidlin created the most lovable little green monster! Seriously inspired! Soooo stinkin’ FUN!! 🙂

All the new Paper Smooches can be found over at the  PS online store! And get ready, because the NEW Release will be available Tomorrow NIGHT, Saturday at 8pm PT! 🙂 Weeeeeeee!!!

Have an awesome weekend!

Take care- Jill 🙂

To Do: Breezy Thoughts…

Happy, Happy Friday!

I’m sharing a Paper Smooches card today that I wish I was currently living in! LOL! 🙂

Can’t you smell the salt water breeze? 🙂 Or hear the Lake winds? 😉

For this card, I used Paper Smooches fun new Daily Diary set which is super fabulous for lists, planners, notes…but also, for CARDS! (I ❤ that little box and check mark–especially when it is checked off!) These PS dies are also new, Postage Stamp dies, and come in a set of FOUR! The Lighthouse die just rocks! 🙂

That’s all for today! Next week is our DT Hop to celebrate October’s release! How crazy is that? Where is September running off to? 🙂

Have a Great WEEKEND!
Take care- Jill 🙂

Some Weekend Cute!

Happy Weekend All! 🙂

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!! 🙂

Oh my word! ❤ him! 🙂 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! 🙂 Also, I used the newer Flower Frames dies! 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. 🙂 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 the  PS online store!

Have an awesome weekend!

Take care- Jill 🙂

Paper Smooches Monsters!

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

I try not to pick favorites, but obviously these little guys have made their way to the top of my list! 🙂 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. 🙂 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. 🙂 These were pretty quick and easy, and I think they turned out SO fun! 🙂

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

Such a little cutie monster! 🙂

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. 🙂

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 🙂
