PS DT Blog Hop - March 2017 Release

It's Pep Rally week and we are here today to share a sampling of the NEW Paper Smooches MARCH 2017 release with you!  THREE new stamp sets and FIVE new dies will be available to purchase at 8:00pm PT on February 28th.  You will find our new products HERE once they go live.  
To add extra fun to our blog hop...we are offering up a prize! 
The prize - a $25. gift code to choose what you like at the PS online store.

Here are the details:
  • FOUR winners will be chosen at RANDOM from any of the design team blogs and the PS Blog to win the $25. prize.
  • Just leave a comment on any of the design team blogs listed below or the PS blog for your chance to win!  (you do not need to comment on all blogs to qualify but it increases your chances) 
  • Deadline: You have until midnight PT on Sunday, February 26th to leave a comment. 
  • Please check the Paper Smooches blog on Monday, February 27th to see if you are one of the FOUR lucky winners.  
Alice is away on vacation, so Katie Gehring was super sweet to fill in for her.  We are all in for a treat!


To increase your chances of winning:
  • Tell us that you Facebooked about our blog hop
  • Tell us that you Tweeted about our hop
  • Tell us that you posted on your blog about our blog hop
(which means that you have up to three extra chances to win on each blog)

I was thinking of how fun it is that our design team is spread across the US.  Each heart represents one of our designers in their home state (not their city).  I appreciate our designers so incredibly much <3


And here is my card...

I used a new shaped card die called Cat Dog Card Die,
BUT, I wanted to create an owl, so I used  different dies from this super fun set that's shown below my card
The sentiment is from our Hooties stamp set.


The possibilities are endless...There are shapes that can be used as smiles or eyebrows.  The shape that I used for the owl feathers is a tongue but it can also be used as hands to hold the card.
Our team is so super awesome that I cannot wait to show you what their clever minds came up with.  
March will be FULL of inspiration!



In 1956, a magician was performing the “cut a person in half” trick using his wife for a televised performance. Immediately after she was divided, the host ended the show. People were horrified, thinking she had been killed, but time had just run out on the broadcast.

Queen Mary of England was gifted a 1:12 scale doll house in 1924. It had working lights, books that were specially written by writers for the library, bottles filled with the appropriate drinks in the wine cellar, and model cars made by Rolls Royce. Even the toilets had working plumbing.

2.20

WOW, February always flies by, doesn't it.  It has just 2 less days than some months, but seems so much shorter :)  It's been a wonderful Anniversary month so far for Paper Smooches.  How about another giveaway?

I have one of these brand new beauties below to give away:

Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors are handcrafted, professional-quality Japanese watercolors with a highly blendable, creamy-smooth consistency. The colors are rich and intense, and exhibit greater opacity than European or American watercolors in traditional Japanese style.
Try these lush watercolors for sketching, illustration, sumi-e, etegami, ink-like wash painting, and more. All colors are certified non-toxic. Pans measure approximately 2" × 1".


This watercolor set retails for about $30.00

I'll meet that value and also offer up a $30. Paper Smooches gift code prize for a second lucky winner.

AND a THIRD winner will be chosen as well...the prize...I'm not sure yet, it will be a surprise :)

Just comment here and tell me your favorite COLOR.  You have until midnight on February 23rd to comment.  Winners will be announced on February 24th.

Our PS DT blog hop is this Thurdsay....you will have your first peeks of our March release.  It's BIGGER than normal (pun intended)

Your eye’s pupil got its name from Latin “Pupilla”, which means little doll. Because that’s what you see when you look into someones pupil, the little doll version of yourself.

1969 Allen Funt creator/host of Candid Camera boarded a plane to Miami. While in flight the plane was hijacked by armed men. A passenger recognized Funt and all were convinced it was a gag. Funt tried to dissuade them but no one believed him they only realized it wasn’t when they landed in Cuba.
