Paper Smooches Sneak Peek–Someone Pinch Me!

NEW-DEC-2012-PS-logo-small THIRD DRAFT

Hola Stamping Friends!

Someone pinch me, please, because I think I’m living in a dream!  I’m thrilled to announce that Kim Hughes has invited me to join the Paper Smooches Stamps Design Team.  What?!!  I know, right?!  My official term begins at the end of January, but I get the privilege of sharing a sneak peek of some of the new product that will be available for sale on February 1, 2013 at www.papersmoochesstamps.com along with many retail stores around the globe.

Paper Smooches is showing off their CHA release during the entire month of January. 37 designers are participating along with the PS DT, so there will be a ton of projects to inspire you this month. Paper Smooches is known for their fun and whimsical hand-drawn stamps. They decided that it was time to broaden their product line to include DIES and wood mount stamps!

You will find a new blog link (or two) to follow every day in January at the PS BlogPaper Smooches is giving away $500 worth of product! Hidden on FIVE of the participating blogs is a prize package worth $100 each. The prizes include a variety of stamp sets, wood mounts and dies. Comment on as many blogs as you can to increase your chances to be one of the five winners.

The deadline for commenting is January 30th – winners will be announced on the PS Blog on January 31st.

Hot Spots Large Sneak Peak 1-1-13

Here’s my project featuring one of the new dies – OH MY GOODNESS!!  The image panel is a new die set called Hot Spots Large Base and Hot Spots LG Set 2 (the polka dot panel).  These dies are an amazing system to help ground those adorable PS images.  The smaller rectangle can be swapped out for one of five different graphic patterns – I’m featuring the polka dot pattern in this project.  I seriously can’t wait for you all to see more of these dies and try them out for yourself – they’ll quickly become your collection basics for sure!

 

That’s it for my GINORMOUS news today, kids!  I hope you’ll pop into the Paper Smooches Blog EVERY SINGLE DAY IN JANUARY for the chance to win and to be amazed by the incredible list of designers that Kim has gathered to share her new products with you.  I promise you’ll be blown away!  Thanks for stopping in!
