Let's have some fun!

I'd like to celebrate our YEAR-and a-HALF Anniversary with you.  It's hard to believe that we have only been in business for 18 months - it feels like forever!!  Our business has literally tripled since our opening and I have YOU to thank for that :)

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your love and support - you are truly appreciated.

I created this card with the circles from Potpourri and Good Gab.  I overlapped the circles with three different ink colors.  I am wishing now that I just left the base white, hmmmm



What's a celebration with some goodies?
I have a fun little package to give away to one lucky winner.


 valued at?  Ummm, Dunno, my math skill are seriously lacking....it's just a cool prize chicas!
...and here's what you have to do
Tell us how you found us
You have until midnight on Sunday (Aug. 26) to comment
Winner will be posted on Monday
 Good luck friends

Here's to many-many more years of creativity with all of you.  I look forward to it!

super HUGE hugs,
Kim

  7. Congrats on your anniversary! I can't exactly remember how I came upon Paper Smooches. I know that I did find you just as you were starting it, so I'm guessing I probably saw a card you made in a magazine and looked you up. Love your stamps and am so glad to have such happy fun stamps to play with!

  12. I found Paper smooches via Make the day special owner Emily. She works very hard to bring new and unique and hard to get stamps to the UK.
    Paper smooches are my go to stamps just love how different they are to everything else out there xx

  13. Happy Anniversary!

    I found you by watching youtube videos. A few of the crafter youtubers show a lot of projects with your stamps so I did some digging around and found the site and blog.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Happy Anniversary! To be honest, I can't remember exactly how I found your blog. I just know followed a link on someone else's blog when PS launched.

    Wishing you much continued success -- LOVE your stamps!

  15. I "found" Paper Smooches after admiring some awesome stamps at Archivers in Memphis, TN. Then I noticed Kristina Werner used them in a video. THEN I did a search for your blog/store to see what other stamps you offered (my Archivers just seems to have sentiments). LOVE THEM!!! (I know, fb only says like, but the cards I have made with my stampsets have my scrappy friends messaging me to ask where I got my stamps and I'm so happy to say Paper Smooches).

  16. Happy half birthday!!

    I found out about you because my friend Leslie (@crookedstamper or at http://thecrookedstamper.blogspot.ca/ ) used your images in some cards I adored, so I followed the linky and voilà!

  38. Happy Half Year Anniversary!

    I think the coloured card base for your card helps accent the rings, but I could see a plain white card working very well too.

    Thanks for the gorgeous stamps and all the blog inspiration. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Congrats Kim... I am totally surprised you have only been around for 1.5 years! It seems like so much longer. I do not exactly remember how I came across you but I assume it was seeing one of your stamps on a card makers creation. SO glad to follow your growth and see the daily inspirations.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Congrats on your anniversary! I can't remember exactly how I found your blog, but it was close to the time you started Paper Smooches. Must've clicked over from another blog!

  52. Happy Anniversary! I followed you over from CHF--I've always loved your designs and punny sentiments! Here's to many more years of inky fun!

    ReplyDelete
  53. A few years ago I saw one of your stamp sets on Cornish Heritage Farms and fell in love with your adorable PS bird, but when I returned to buy that set CHF had gone out of business and I searched the internet for your name and that particular stamp set. Finally, it must have been around the time you started your store and blog that I found you and your fabulous stamps! I wish I could remember what that stamp set was! Congratulations on your 18 months here--we love you!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I am quite certain that I discovered you via Moxie Fab World (I've discovered so many wonderful scrappin' companies through there). Regardless, I am SOOOOOO glad I've found you! Your stamps are super awesome and fun!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Congratulations on three years. I really wish I could remember how I found you, but I can't say for sure. But, I will tell you that I fell in love with your sentiment stamps, and bought the Sentiment Sampler and Pretty Phrases first. Use them ALL the time. I have grown my collection to include most of your sentiment sets and Hope. I recently added chubby Chums, my first image set of yours, and hope to play along in some challenges. Also, I will hopefully meet you at Paper Tales in San Diego soon.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Whoo-hooo! 1.5 Anniversary! I "followed" you when you left PTI and started this endeavor. Real Life can be tough, we all need "paper smooches" every now and then.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I was first introduced to Paper Smooches in your very beginning days, on the Paper Crafts Connection blog. They showed "Falling for You" amongst others and I was in love =)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I could have sworn PS had been around for ages! Your stamps ROCK! I'm not sure how exactly I found out about your company. Perhaps in a scrapbook magazine or on Moxie Fab World. Quite possibly it's "all of the above" from your above list! LOL! Congrats and here's to many more years and super cute stamps!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Happy Anniversary! I've been following long enough that I can't remember - but I think it was just seeing cards on blogs done with the first few sets.

    ReplyDelete
  60. YEAY!! Happy Anniversary! I've been following your blog since the CHF and Paper Crafts days. I *LOVE* your style and the fun combinations that can come from the smart and modular way you design the stamps. So glad (but not at all surprised) that you're having such great success! Here's to many, many more!! :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  62. Congratulations! (Too bad you can't "stamp" in the comment section! LOL.) I think I found you through PTI but it seemed like you were everywhere. I saw your designs in most publications I picked up. Your unique writing is what drew me in.

    Here's to many, many more years.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I think I first ran across your stamps on a card posted by Michele over at StudioMSG. Hooked ever since! Congrats on the big 1.5!

  64. Congratulations on 18 wildly successful months! I have no doubt that Paper Smooches will grow and grow! :) I was a follower of Kim Hughes in her PTI days, and started my wishlist as soon as PS intoduced their first sets. I adore PS stamps and all the fun that they bring to my craft table! Thanks Kim for all you do! Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I found you while browsing the blog of Lori Barnett. She created a calendar using images from Paper Smooches and I just fell in love with the images (particularly Surf and Turf). I have a big wish list. Just wish my pocketbook was a little deeper.

  80. Well, a long time ago, I had this gig with a magazine. There was this rocking girl named Kim. I thought she was pretty cool. And then one day she started this stamp company. :)

  85. I've followed Paper Smooches from the beginning since Kim left Papertrey Ink!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Probably from Moxie Fab originally, but once I found your blog, I was immediately hooked. Your design team is awesome, and your stamps fit my profile perfectly: a combination of cute and fun, quirky, funny and clean and graphic. I only have one set of Paper Smooches stamps so far, but am saving up and dreaming of the day I can purchase a whole bunch so I can mix and match to my heart's content!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Happy 18 Months! What a super giveaway to celebrate the occasion! I followed you via CHF. I bought your stamp designs from them. After they were closing, I believe I saw a thread on Split Coast Stampers that said you were "coming back" via Paper Smooches. Luckily I found your blog when you launched PS, subscribed and the rest is ... . :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. Happy celebrations!! I found your site through Jen McGuire, I love all the fun, quirky images and sentiments, I'm hoping to start adding some of these sets to my supplies soon!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Happy Anniversary Kim!!! You deserve all the success in the world!!! I discovered you on the first World Cardmaking day when I purchased your set "Cutie Patootie from CHF...and then again through Paper Crafts Connection and was overjoyed when you announced you were starting your own company!!! Just think!!! A whole store full of Kim Hughes designs!!! Congrats again and happy wishes for many more years of success to come!!! Bev Boyles

    ReplyDelete
  90. Congrats on eighteen months, Kim! That's fantastic! And yes, it does seem longer. I remember seeing your CHF stamps in magazines back in the day, and then I was out of the crafting loop for a while. Then I got back into the swing of things right around this past New Years, and started seeing stamps that looked remarkably similar to your CHF stamps, but they were called Paper Smooches. I was hooked when I bought my first set this past February, and shortly thereafter joined the monthly club. LOVE 'EM!!! Again, congrats, and thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Happy Anniversary! Love love love Paper Smooches stamps and the inspiring projects you and your design team make. I have been following for a while but I believe I first discovered PS from Moxie Fab

    ReplyDelete
  96. I found Paper Smooches when I went to check in on your blog after it had been awhile. So glad I did! I missed the first few months of your new adventure, but it won't happen again! :) I've been a stamp club member ever since and look forward to the peeks every month before playing with new goodies! Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Happy 18 month anniversary, Kim! I found paper Smooches through the Paper Crafts blog and magazine...I have downloaded all your free sentiments that used to be part of the downloads section of the magazine way back when! I remember reading that you were going out on your own to start a new line of stamps and I was like, "Yay!"

  128. I honestly can't say where I first found out about your stamps. My best guess would be either on Simon Says Stamp's blog, or Jennifer McGuire's. Thank you for such an awesome prize and congrats on 1.5 yrs in business!

  129. I have lovedf a bunch of stamps on projects I have seen for awhile. I finally clicked one time coming from Laurie Schmidlin's blog I think. I loved what I saw when you were with CHF. I love the words you use or the way you wrote them for us to stamp! Congrats on your anniversary. Even if I don't win, I think the little single gnome stamp has to come to my house and stay. I love him!

  132. Oh Kim, Happy Anniversary!! I'm so happy for you!!! You know me, I've been a fan of yours since the original Cornish Heritage Farm days. :-) HUGS!!!

  133. Big anniversary wishes to you, Kim! And here's to many more years of Paper Smooches!

    I like the border on the card actually - glad it's not just a white base...

    And I don't remember how I found you but I know I bought all of your first sets at once and haven't looked back since. I also remember Kasia guest designing for you and loving her stuff. :)

  134. 18 months! That's all...WOW! I think you are now my favorite stamp maker! I think I own all by 3 sets! Love the stamps.
    Saw a super cute card on Christina's (?) blog... and followed the trail to you! Then I put 2+2 together and realized you were the same Kim Hughes from Cornish Farms (?) or something like that... and they had cute stuff... and I thought ... good for you! I have made SOOOOO many cards with your new stamps... the ideas just keep coming... love em! CONGRATULATIONS!

  135. Happy year and a half anniversary to you. I think I first saw your stamps in Paper Crafts magazine. I kept noticing adorable little characters and great funky font sentiments on the designs and kept reading "Paper Smooches" in the supply list. So I googled your company, ordered some stamps, and became a HUGE FAN! Luckily, my LSS has also fallen in love with your designs so I can shop local AND get the latest releases. Keep up the great work!

  136. Happy 18 months anniversary! Been following your blog for almost a year...first saw your stamps at Stampworks in Mesa while visiting there last October.

  137. I first saw your products in a Jennifer McGuire card & later (I believe) Kristina Werner used your stamps in a beautiful card. I also saw your products in my one trip to Archivers ... but they were out of the stamp set I really wanted. Love your stamps & subscribe to your newsletter. Happy 1-1/2 year anniversary ... and many more!!

  138. My LSS just recently stared carrying your stamps, so I am a more recent follower. I googled you to find your blog.

  139. I have a few lovely crafty friends who referred me to your stamps and blog.

  140. I think the first time I saw a Paper Smooces stamp was on Amy R.'s blog - prairirpaperandink.typepad.com.

  141. Happy 18-month anniversary -- and for the awesome giveaway! I think I first found out about your stamps through the talented Emily Leiphart.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Happy 18 month anniversary! Wow! I can't believe it's been 18 months already! I'll have to count my stamps lol!!! I think I first heard about Paper Smooches on Facebook! Thanks so much for the wonderful giveaway!!!

    ReplyDelete
  143. I first found paper Smooches when I was browsing the Splitcoaststampers gallery and saw Joan Ervin's adorable card using the fish. Happy 18 months. Love the circles. What a give a way. Wow.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Happy 18th month anniversary! It must be so gratifying to see your efforts come into fruition and with such great results at that. I believe I found you through a friend of mine who was using your stamps on her cards and I instantly fell in love with your style. Thanks for a chance at a great giveaway and here's wishing you many more great years ahead!

  145. Congrats!

    I don't remember exactly where I first saw PS stamps. Most likely either Paper Crafts or online. In May, I owned NO PS stamp sets and I now have five sets! Would love to win more!

  146. I first found you WAY back in your Cornish Heritage Farms days. :D I still have my "U R A Hoot!" set. I just love those little owls. I was so happy to see you set up a shop of your own. Good for you! And may you enjoy many more years with Paper Smooches.

    ReplyDelete
  147. I wish I could remember, but I think the first stamp I purchased was Pretty Phrases and I still use it all the time. The phrases are perfect and I love the script. I think I probably saw the stamp used on one of Jennifer's cards. I love all the phrase stamps and think the image stamps are sweet, funny, down-to-earth and scrappy. What brand recognition--I know a Paper Smooches stamp immediately. Seems like you have been around forever--isn't that funny? Dorothy Anderson in Salem, OR

  149. I've loved your stamp designs since CHF and was devastated to see them go out! I'd ask friends why I couldn't find your stamps anywhere afterward. Then I found you again in a magazine card sample. It felt like Christmas! You ARE a Rockstar in my book!

  150. Happy 18 months!!!!!

    I love this card today! The overlapped circles are fabulous!!

  151. Congratulations on your 1.5 bday!!! So very happy for you on your success. I found you on SCS awhile ago. Then I saw someone (I think Susan Raihala) paper piece your veggie set and I fell in love.

  152. Congratulations on your 1.5 year anniversary! First saw your stamps on Prairie Paper and Ink with Amy R. The first thing I do after work every day is log on to my e-mail as I am always lifted by your funny little blurbs and get great inspiration from all the fabulous cards made with your amazing stamps! I usually have to pick my jaw up from the floor as I marvel at the creativity and fantastic art you and your design team send us every day! Thanks:)

  171. A massive congrats to you! I can't remember exactly how I found you (my brain is full and I have to make some more room) but I think it was through a DT member's blog...

Thank you sooo much for all your hard work and for such wonderful inspiration!

  179. I found you through Heather P. when she was on your DT. I used to go to her blog to do her color challenges that she issued. She always used the most adorable stamps! So I had to find out what they were...they were Paper Smooches! I'm so glad I did :) I started with the Christmas set, and now I have a whole basket full! But I want them all! Congrats on your year and a 1/2 anniversary :)

  194. I first saw the Halloweenies stamp set when I was searching for something else on Ellen Hutson. I loved the design, but I was a little unsure about ordering it because I hadn't heard of the brand before, and I have learned that not all clear stamps are created equally. I ended up taking a chance and ordered it. And then just a few days later, I saw Jennifer McGuire had created a card with one of your stamp sets, and she said how great the designs and quality is. From then on, I've been hooked! I love your stamps! Happy Anniversary! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  195. Paper Smooches is in business for 18 months only!? I cannot believe it as I thought it is longer! I stumble on Paper Smooches brand when I was surfing the crafty blogs and someone use your brand stamps.

Thanks for the chance to win some goodies!

  196. I purchased your stamps originally through Cornish Heritage Farms and became ADDICTED to the fun and 'youthful' looking stamps! Made many a card with them. I can't remember exactly how I came to discover Paper Smooches but I was THRILLED when you started designing again!!
