A Paper Smooches SALE!!



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey friends...a heads up!
The last time Paper Smooches had a big sale...it was enormously successful...so I want to let you know that it might take us a little longer than normal to get orders out the door.  We hope you enjoy the sale.

* You will receive 25% off your entire order when you apply the coupon code PSSALE2015 to your order before checking out.  (If there is an issue, please type the coupon code in the comments box).

* You will receive a free "thanks" stamp (shown above).  The stamp is approx. 1/2" x 1 1/2". (while supplies last).

* You will receive FREE US shipping if your order is over $50. (based on subtotal, after discount is applied).

* You will receive our FREE TAM stamp set called "Luminous Spring" for ALL orders over $60. (based on subtotal, after discount is applied).  If we run out of Luminous Spring, your free TAM set will be replaced with "I Blank You" stamp set.  We don't anticipate this happening, but it's hard to predict demand when there is a sale.

The sale code is only valid on products that are available, and in stock.

I am excited to share a new stamp set called Twiggy Florets and a die called Ruffle Pleats.
I stamped and colored the flowers and assembled the ruffle pleats....and stitched along the top.
I used striped patterned paper to balance out the color.
The ruffle pleat die is approx. 2 3/4" wide.  I added another pleat on the end to extend it.

You can tell identical twin babies apart from their navels, since navel is a scar and 
thus they’re different.

Have a wonderful day

When one hermit crab finds a bigger shell, a gang of them will sometimes form a “vacancy chain” in which they queue up from smallest to largest and all move one shell up.
