Paper Smooches projects

Hi there! Today I have a couple of Paper Smooches projects to share with you. It’s been awhile since my last post. I suppose it was a combination of being busy behind the scenes working on upcoming projects and needing a little blogging break. Either way, it’s nice to post again!Paper Smooches-Comforting HugsHow adorable is this little kitty cat hug from Comforting Hugs. I created a little lunchbox note size using the Notebook Basic die and the Comforting Hugs coordinating dies. For the background, I blended in some Salty Ocean and then splattered a bit of water.
Paper Smooches-Mason Jar diesThis next card is a triple shaker using the Mason Jar dies. Gotta love a triple shaker, right? It was the perfect way to show off these gorgeous sequin mixes by Lucy. Here’s a little video to show you how I created my triple shaker wonder:)I also have a winner to announce from my Sparkling Clear Sequin Mix giveaway from my last post. Congrats, Liz McAllister!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  16. So glad you’re back! You make shaker cards look so easy. I always end up with a tiny gap & sequins & microbeads go everywhere! Adorable card.

  17. Loooove this mason shaker card! ! You mentioned in your video, you need a “designated” spot for spraying. So what I use in my craftroom is just a plain old cardboard box. I use it for my misting and such. I just keep mine on the floor. You could also use a shoebox as well. Keep up the gorgeous designs my friend!

  18. This card is amazing. I love the sequin mixes you used. I may have to CAS this one. My niece is doing the whole rustic, shabby chic, I don’t know what to call it, but burlap and lace and mason jars wedding.. haha I think this would be an awesome card for her, in her colors. ^_^ Thanks so much for sharing, and taking the time to do a video.
