Let’s Giggle!

If you are looking for my Paper Smooches January Pep Rally post, please find that one HERE 🙂

Happy Friday! I hope you are all recovered from great fun with family and friends! Now, round two ahead with New Year’s Celebrations! 🙂

Today, I’m sharing the sweetest little Paper Smooches card using December’s release of Ribbon Dies and the Wine Sampler stamp set. I cannot stop giggling at this card, and I’m the one who made it! Is that wrong? 🙂 !

The Wine Sampler has an array (and bountiful!) set of sentiments! “Let’s Giggle”– ❤ that sentiment!

Oh my goodness! I swear, I put glasses on anything and I’m a puddle of goo! 🙂 Just the cutest!  These glasses are from the Pineapple 2 Die. The cute little trees themselves are Paper Smooches Evergreen Dies. And the little star is from the Super Star Dies. Super Star! (I can never resist saying that Mary Catherine Gallagher style. 😉 )

I die cut the trees from solid cardstock and patterned paper and pieced them together. I added some Distress Ink to create a little blotted background before adding the trees, their googley eyes, and their accoutrements. 🙂 Gah! ❤ how this makes me 🙂 !

Take care- Jill 🙂

Happy Friday! I thought I’d pop in and share more from the Paper Smooches February release! It’s quite the party going on over at the Paper Smooches blog this month! I highly recommend hopping over there–LOTS of giveaways!! 🙂


I kept this card pretty simple and let the new word die Celebrate do the work!jill_celebrate-word-die_00

I also used the Star die frame from the Super Star dies and I embossed with the Celebrate Balloon dies. OH, and I also used the Celebrate mat from Let’s Celebrate Icons dies. Such a sparkly little number, this one! I like having this card on hand to send for any celebratory occasion! 🙂

Thank you again for stopping by–enjoy your weekend!

Take care- Jill 🙂

P.S. Next week, I’ll be here sharing something super fun! Hint: Cute. 😉

More PS September! :)

I thought I’d share a couple more Star Cards I made with Paper Smooches September release! I feel like I have barely cracked the surface of possibilities yet! You can find my previous celebratory Paper Smooches post HERE. I also used the cute new Feathered Friends set HERE.

These cards are made with the new die set, Super Star dies! ❤

hawkins_jill_miss your face_00_WmEeeeep I love the stars with the City Super 2 dies! I watercolored the background with distress inks for this one.

hawkins_jill_miss your face_WmAnd the sentiment is from Fun & Flirty! 🙂

The next one is made with the same Super Star dies and sentiment set, Fun & Flirty! I’m telling you, that is a fantastic sentiment set! 🙂

hawkins_heybeautiful_wmJust a touch of watercolor for an easy background. The hard part is letting it dry! 😉

hawkins_heybeautiful_00_wmI thought it was fun to trim up with Star frame into strips and create this card.

Be sure to check out all the awesome new Paper Smooches goodies HERE! Such FUN!! 🙂

Thanks for popping in today!

Paper Smooches September!

I am extremely excited to take part in celebrating Paper Smooches September release! (I may have squealed a wee little bit! 🙂 ) I am a big fan of Paper Smooches ❤ . That’s no secret though, especially if you saw my collection from over the years! Shhhh 😉

I was able to use the new die set, Super Star dies! Of course, I enjoy its versatility completely.. Stars are always a good idea! Always! 🙂

hawkins_jill_bang_00_wmThis PS release follows suit with every other one: Chock full of fantastic (and versatile) dies and sweet stamps. I love to mix them and use them in different ways. 🙂hawkins_jill_bang_wmThese stars in a line speak to my graphic loving heart. So many possibilities. I kept this one slightly simple, with strips of card stock pieced and then die cut. I finished it off with some stamping from the Summer Sampler. I even attempted to make this all straight! Haaa! 🙂

Naturally, I had to make a few more cards. Because: New dies, people. New. Dies. 😉

hawkins_jill_awesomestars_wmThere are many different stars in this new set. Which makes me happy! For this card, I used the largest star, as well as the star frame. Such fun with some googley eyes! 🙂hawkins_jill_awesomestars_00_wmI also used the Awesome die. Literally and figuratively. 🙂

Be sure to hop over to the Paper Smooches blog today to check out more September fun there! I’ll be back again this week, sharing a couple more cards I made with the new Super Star dies. You might find them, or these on the PS Blog today? Just sayin’. 😉

Ginormous thanks to Kim for having me along this month! You continue to make the best things to create with! ❤

Thanks for popping by today!
