It's release day!

All of that hype brought us to this day - release day!  It seems like it took forever to get here!

In all of this excitement - I forgot to shout about our Anniversary!!  Paper Smooches turns TWO today!  THANK YOU so much for all of your love and support.  We wouldn't be here without you.  

Please welcome:

A word from the fabulous Lain Ehmann:
We know that the most versatile and downright fun paper crafting supply is our stamps. But even though we love them dearly, sometimes we look at them and think, “Okay, now what?” Despite the love, there are times when the inspiration just isn't there.
When it comes right down to it, nothing is better for revving up that mojo than learning from “the masters.” Watching real experts demonstrate unique techniques and projects is a sure-fire way to rev up the inspiration. But who has the time or money to travel all over the country to take classes?
Well, you don't have to! Let me introduce... True Stamp!
True Stamp is the only event to offer the best in LIVE stamping instruction, brought right to you via your computer. That's right, no need to pack up all your supplies. No need to leave the family. No need to eat lousy convention center food. Instead, we bring the classes to YOU. Just log in from your computer and be treated to classes from six amazing sponsors, teaching you the latest and greatest skills and techniques to get your creative stampy juices flowing. And it's all recorded so you can watch again and again after the event!
If you're ready to roll up your sleeves and get stamping, then check out True Stamp HERE
Join me and five other amazing instructors on March 9 for a full day of stampy fun!  You'll learn from experts such as Shari Carroll, Angela Magnuson, Bev Grey, Bobbi Lemanski, Kelly Marie Alvarez, and myself.  More details to come.

Typically, it would cost hundreds of dollars to track these amazing instructors down and take classes from them individually. But you'll get all six classes for less than $100*!
Because this is a brand-new event, we have a rockin' special for early bird registrations! Sign up by Feb. 8 and SAVE $50! That means you'll get access to all six classes, plus full replays, plus extra goodies, for only $47. But you MUST sign up now!
Hope to see you on March 9th.  I am really looking forward to it!
We have a mini-announcement to make.
A TON of work went into the winter CHA show and although it's now over, I am still waiting to exhale (grin)  Our show was very successful...everyone LOVES our new stamps and dies!  Increased orders is a wonderful thing, but it's consuming my time.  I need to be realistic...and at this time, I simply cannot have a stamp release ready and in hand by March 1st.  It's killing me to admit that.  BUT, we do have nearly 60 new products in the store now.  I do have a die release ready to go for March, but I just can't make a stamp release happen.

This is the first time in the two years that I have had to skip a stamp release.  I will do everything in my power to make sure that it doesn't happen again.  Maintaining excellent customer service is very important to me and I feel that could get compromised if I can't keep up.
  I hope you understand why I made this difficult decision.
In case you haven't heard...the postal service raised rates on Jan. 27th.  This change forced us to analize our shipping rates.  We took everything into consideration and still feel that we are on the lower end of shipping rates.  Read about our new shipping policies HERE.

Congrats to Erica Bass for being our cool shades winner last week!  Her card is absolutely darling!  I'd like to go to THAT partay!

This week's SPARKS challenge is a Picture Perfect challenge.  I hope you play along.  Our design team rocked this challenge!!

Thanks for stopping by,  I hope your weekend is fabulous!
Much love!
