Paper Smooches is showing off their CHA release during the entire month of January.  37 designers are participating along with the PS DT, so there will be a ton for projects to inspire you this month.  Paper Smooches is known for their fun and whimsical hand-drawn stamps.  They decided that it was time to broaden their product line to include DIES and wood mount stamps!  
 
I have a project to share using NEW PS product that releases on February 1, 2013 at www.papersmoochesstamps.com along with many retail stores around the globe.
 
You will find a new blog link (or two) to follow every day in January at the PS Blog
 
Paper Smooches is giving away $500. Worth of product!  Hidden on FIVE of the participating blogs is a prize package worth $100. each. The prize includes a variety of stamp sets, wood mounts and dies.  Comment on as many blogs as you can to increase your chances to be one of the five winners.
 
Deadline is January 30th – winners will be announced on the PS Blog on January 31st.


How's this for a fast and easy card? I whipped this up for Hank for a surprise to go with a Transformers comic book I picked up for a buck. Those are Optimus Prime colors in case you were wondering. You might need to be a five year old boy or a mom to a five year old boy to pick up on that:). 

Loving these new Small Hot Spot Dies. Lots of ways to use them. I die cut each one in red and blue and then randomly replaced the stars and chevron in the strip in the opposite colors. Really neat in real life. The sentiment is from the Chit Chat set

So are you getting excited by all the new product reveals? My wish list is a mile long. :) So much cute stuff.
