It's time for another giveaway...you have until Thursday, February 9th at midnight to

I will post the winners here on the blog on Friday.

What are you playing for?
Winner's choice of THREE Paper Smooches stamp sets.
I am choosing TWO winners :)








Kathryn Johnston became the first girl to play Little League baseball in 1950, when she tucked her hair under her hat, adopted the nickname “Tubby”, and joined the Kings Dairy team, posing as a boy. When she told her coach she was a girl, he said “That’s O.K., you’re a darned good player.”

  1. that's a tough one as i've gotten away from buying PP as I have way too many stockpiled. I tend to go for simple ones that are classic now. but for a while i was collecting anything boy themed. Basic gray, simple stories, my minds eye are all in my collection among many others. Papertrey Ink and lawnfawn put out some great simple background papers. are you going to launch a paper smooches line?!

    ReplyDelete
  123. I do love paper. LOL Echo Park has patterned paper I really like. Lawn Fawn's smaller prints are great for cards also.

    ReplyDelete
  124. A favorite PP company is today's (tricky) question, let's try to answer it. First, a disclaimer, I harbor an unhealthy affinity for pattern paper, which means I have to fight the impulse to acquire PP. Have been loving the 6x6 size recently, including Penny Black, American Crafts, MME, Crate Paper, among others. Curiously enough, I just came across "Playful" by Becky Higgins for Project Life, and I am loving it. Cannot wait to play with some of my favorite stamps including PS's Great Chemistry. BTW Kim,any chance to have a female scientist stamp in the near future? Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Patterned paper favorite is Graphic 45......BUT I LOVE THEM ALL!!! That's why I have a bookshelf FULL of pads of patterned paper and more in plastic carrying cases. lol....
