getting close....

to Pep Rally Week...eeeeek!
Winding down June is Kryssi and Heidi today, sharing cards using the "Swanky Snowdudes" stamp set

Heidi's use of product is always wonderful.  I dig the embossed polka dot card stock that reminds me of falling snow and that peppermint looking baker's twine (delish).  I love that sweet red bird.  The North pole can double as a thermometer, but I adore Heidi's use of that image.  her punched mound of snow is per-fect!

Let me start by saying that i love that patterned resembles snowflakes even though it could be flowers...the color is divine :)  Her added pops of green are unexpected and so delightful.  If you look closely, you will see the vellum layer at the bottom  It adds wonderful interest.

and...we have chosen our winners for the Newsletter challenge.  Did you know that the 6 projects shown on the monthly news flash are never before seen on the Paper Smooches blog?  We like to keep it fresh and entice you to stop by each month to see what we have been up to.  I hope it works :)

soooo - our winners are:

Wendi Morehead 
Jamie Greene
MaryAnn Novakowski

Please send me an e-mail at and let me know which Paper Smooches stamp set you would like.  You can wait until July 1st to see that release and decide to choose one of them if you like :)


It was so much fun seeing your guesses.  Some of you were dead on while others had quite an imagination, which I love.  If you do not subscribe to our newsletter, 3 words were given to describe our three stamp sets for July.  Those words were:

Hot Dog

I would love to tell you more specifics, but what I can tell you is that the themes are:

Glub - FISH (and more)
Hot Dog - there is a WIENER DOG on this set...some people actually guessed this correctly, well done.  I have a dachshund, and adore him, so I had to make a doxie stamp (the actual theme is still a secret though)
Cavities - SWEET treats

When we asked you what stamp sets you would like to see us make - ocean (fish) and sweets kicked the other theme's butts, so we listened and are delivering...coming to you on July 1st.

Thanks for starting your week with us  :)
