Hello everyone.

I want to thank all of the designers who signed up to be an affiliate for my company.
Today I decided to close the Paper Smooches ShareASale account. There were some issues with the system, so I decided that it was best to cancel the program.

I hope you will continue to share your Paper Smooches creations with the world.  You inspire me and I will do my best to continue to inspire all of you with my designs.

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for all of the love and support you have given to me over the years. I appreciate you so much <3

Here is another peek at the new December release...
I used a new STITCH BUILDER DIES along with a new sentiment stamp set called Vanilla Verbiage. More details to come this week.
