8.18 Sunday Recap

Hello, PS friends and fans!

Savannah O'Gwynn here to share a quick recap post for this week on the PS blog!

Be sure to stop by for daily inspiration from the PS DT!! Kim has released some super cute new stamps and dies, as well as a few new stencils, for August, and the PS DT has made our jaws drop with their designs! Check it out by scrolling down and visiting daily!

And don't forget to join in the fun with our August DOUBLE challenge- SCHOOL + WORDS! I couldn't decide which challenge to use so I am letting you pick:)

  • School- create any project with a school theme for your project OR
  • Words- use any sentiment on your project OR
  • COMBINE both challenges;) 
I created this card for the August release but never sent Kim my photos 🤦🏼‍♀️ Soooooo, I'm going to use it for the August challenge #winwin :)  I love Kim's Hot Dots stencil- it's prefect for backgrounds (large polka dots) and little details (smaller polka dots). This is fun little layered birthday card that can be used for anyone special! [PS stamps/dies/stencils used: Sweet Succulent, Hot Dots stencil, Butterfly Duet dies, Frames 5 dies]
You can join in the fun and find out more details HERE or link up below!

Alice Cooper formed a celebrity “drinking club” in the 1970’s called the Hollywood Vampires. You could only join the club if you could out-drink all members, which included Keith Moon, Ringo Starr, Micky Dolenz, Harry Nilsson, John Belushi, and John Lennon.

“Mountain Dew” was originally slang for mountain-brewed moonshine. And the soda was originally sold as a whiskey chaser.

Ryan Gosling gained 60 pounds by drinking melted ice cream to play the father in Peter Jackson’s ‘The Lovely Bones.’ He was then told he was too fat to play the part and the role went to Mark Wahlberg.
