I hope you had a lovely Labor Day yesterday.
It's September?!?  just wow.



Emily created this super sweet bookmark that could also be a tag - love this!!  She split the sentiment...which is very cool.  Her patterns are awesome and so is her project!




Laurie created felt ornaments with our Ornaments dies.  She decorated a polka dot bag to hold them.  My goodness....this makes a fantastic gift, don't you think???

HUGE congrats winners!!  Please send an e-mail to info(at)papersmoochesstamps(dot)com to claim your prize of a $25. gift code to our online store :)  Thank you everyone for your sweet comments - we appreciate you so very much.



Michele's card has a cool shimmery-look to it!  I love those soft blue stars and silky blue stickers.  This makes a nice holiday card, but it can also be used for a baby boy card as well.  Yup, it's dreamy :)


Kalyn cut random stitched frames and used them as accents on her card.  I love that!  Her fun mix of color and patterns are delightful!

A Blessed Christmas
Fun and whimsical religious holiday images are hard to find, so we answered the call.  This set includes quite a few builder possibilities and the sentiments work beautifully with every image on this set.


Blessed Icons Dies
This is the coordinating die set for A Blessed Christmas stamp set.


Cityscape 1 Dies
This "Bethlehem inspired" cityscape will look amazing on your Christmas projects. 


A Holy Holiday
This stamp set embraces the true meaning of Christmas.  This timeless set can be used over and over in many different ways.


 Holly Jolly
Holly Jolly includes images that looks great on holiday tags.  You can create wreaths with the tree sprigs.  The bows add a darling touch to so many images.  The swag stamps are amazing for all sorts of party projects!


Just for you
Just in time for holiday gifts!  These super fun sentiments will add an amazing 
touch to home made gifts this season :)


 Christmas Words 2 Dies
This is a follow up set to our popular Christmas Words dies set that we released last year.  The words and phrase on this set is larger so it packs a bigger punch!  "Season's Greetings" is connected.


Ornaments Dies
This set has a bunch of ornament options.  The ring is the cut that creates the hanger on top of the ornament.  You can use real wire if you like.  The creative possibilities are wide open!


Stockings Dies
This set includes three unique stockings that are perfect for the upcoming
holiday.  There are lots of fun builder options.  Use cardstock, patterned
paper, felt, fabric etc...


Big Balloons Dies
 This set of large balloons includes confetti for shaker boxes....or you can scatter them on your projects.  The smiling face is a separate die that can be cut into these balloons and so many other shapes if you like.  
Your creativity will burst at the seams with this cute set!


Curly Clouds Dies
Clouds are great to use on projects all year around.
They are happy and truly unique.


Stitched Frames Dies
Stitches adds an amazing texture to paper!  There are a ton of frame options on this set.  Use them to frame a sentiment or focus on an image.  Frame a small photo or use them as a background.  

You burn 650 calories donating one pint of blood.

Thank yu soooo very much for your love and support - I appreciate all of you :)

oh my gosh, where do I begin.  I freaking LOVE Jocelyn's card!  The mix of classic and vintage, the fall feel of it, the mix of color and shapes and the message is what has me smiling.  Great card!!


Ashley's card packs a lot of PUNCH!  I loooove those bold colored stripes in the background.  The added B/W and gold are fabulous!

I just read this on Faceboook about Hello Kitty - not sure if I believe it...

I used three of the twelve new products on my card for today.
They are called Ornaments dies, Stitched Frame dies and A Holy Holiday stamp set.

I die cut the stitched window and die cut the stitches onto the square that was cut from the frame.  I stamped the sentiment and popped it up.  I die cut the ornaments and stamped a snowflake on them with a similar colored ink to the paper.  I used two different ornament toppers and hung them with twine.  It was a really fun card to make :)


Steven Spielberg declined to direct the Harry Potter movies and said “It’s just like withdrawing a billion dollars and putting it into your personal bank accounts. There’s no challenge.”

Hello friends!
I have an announcement to make today.
A couple of our scrapbook designers stepped down to work outside the home. And since that left us with only two scrapbook designers, we decided it was best to no longer have a "scrapbook team".  It turns out the timing was perfect for the other two girls as well.  Sadly, we are saying goodbye to Kimmers, Mou, Summer and Wendy Sue.  I wish them all the very best.  My goodness....they are amazing in every way.  Not just talented paper crafters but the most genuine girls you could ever meet.  It has been a true pleasure working with them.  I adore them and look forward to watching these girls on the "outside".

Our blog posting days will stay the same.  I will continue to post the PS "Die team" projects on Saturdays.

Our PS DT Blog Hop is tomorrow.  Please stop by for your chance to win some "smooches"

I will post our full release here on Saturday.  The September release is on September 1st.



heehee, this card is a crack up!  I love the hot teenage colors.  Fantastic use of our Slang Gang stamp set...and He Said, She Said as well.  This is super playful and totally FUN!


Bam!  soooo fresh and fun!!  I love the bold colors and the cute paper star accents.  Kelly green is unexpected and wonderful!


This is Nancy's last week as our guest....boo!  I loved having her in August and I will be sure to stalk her blog ;)  I adore her happy card!  That tag is really cute and so are those fun patterns!  Thank you Nancy - it has been a pleasure xx

Russian voters used to have a box on their ballots to vote for “against all”.

BIG smooches!

Laurie's sweet little card packs a huge punch!  I looove the red/white and black color combo.  I haven't seen those mushrooms in a while, so I love that Laurie chose them as her focal point.  The cute mushroom cluster is from our Spring Groves stamp set and the frame is our Scallop Frame die.


gosh, this card would surely cheer up anyone :)   I love the inlaid sentiment.  That hot pink really stands out.  Her coloring - FABulous!!!  She makes our "Chums" look extra-cute!

During the late 1800s a baboon was employed by the railroad as a signalman. 
He never once made a mistake.

Hellllo Monday!
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.

I will have some Bosom Buddy cards to share this week.  You have a week to receive this set for FREE with a $60. purchase.  

This Thursday is our PS DT blog hop!  I can't wait for you to see our September release - eeeek!!



Patterned papers and sticker accents are sooo beautiful and easy to use.  In most cases (like this one) all that is needed is the perfect sentiment.  That's the beautiful thing about stamps...you can use them over and over again and stamp them in any color.  It looks like a card you would buy in the store...love this!


Michele rocked this set!  I love her colored words ~ the butterfly accent is beyond perfect and that super sweet paper peaking out from the back is soooo cute!!  My fav - the embossed word - it looks AMAZING!!

It wasn’t until he was 37 when Jack Nicholson found out that his supposed
 “sister”, June, was actually his mother.
