our September guest designer search begins today

The first Thursday of each month marks the start of our newest guest designer search. woohoooo. Guest Designers will receive 2 NEW stamp sets and 2 shaped card templates and will have their name and projects featured here on the PS blog for 3-4 weeks (depending on how many weeks there are in the month).

You will have approx. two weeks to show us your talent!  You can submit as many projects as you like and past submissions are welcome.  Guest designers are not chosen randomly.  We will be looking for designers who stand out in one (or more) of the following categories:
  • great use of color
  • outstanding design
  • mad coloring skills
  • fun paper piecing
  • pure cleverness
You will need to use a Paper Smooches stamp or any of our FREE digi stamps.  A new digi image and sentiment were added to the PS web site last night.  You can find it HERE.  Past digi images and sentiments were moved to a tab at the top of this blog 

Add a direct link to your project using the Inlinkz system below.

The deadline is Wednesday, August 17.  Our September guest designer will be announced on Thursday, August 18.

Our FREE August digi stamp and sentiment are now available.  Here is my sample:

This months digi can be used as a raspberry, blackberry or cluster of grapes.  I printed the digis onto patterned papers - the raspberry is fussy-cut.  The image and sentiments work very well with our Fruitastic stamp set.

The winner of the FRUITY-Licious Prize is from August 1st is:
