{Paper Smooches} October DT Blog Hop + Video!

It's Pep Rally week and we are here today to share a sampling of the Paper Smooches November stamp release with you! FOUR new stamp sets and EIGHT new dies will be available to purchase at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time on November 1st. You will find them HERE. Follow the Paper Smooches blog for more sneak peeks.

  • FOUR winners will be chosen at RANDOM from any of the design team blogs and the PS Blog
  • The prize - a $25 gift code to choose what you like at the PS online store.

3. Tell us that you Tweeted about our hop

Kim's illustrations are sure to make anyone smile or laugh out loud. Calorie Free does both and it's my favourite set from the November release. When I saw the sentiments, I knew that I wanted to make a group of foodie friends having a conversation.



The taco, its sentiment, sushi rolls and its sentiment are all from the Calorie Free stamp set. The box of fries and its sentiment are from Think Fast. The hamburger (or 'secret' the box of fries is hiding) is from Alfresco. The Word Bubbles and base of the card use patterned paper from Dear Lizzy's Lucky Charm collection. I added googly eyes in three different sizes proportionate to the food items. LOL


Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check the Paper Smooches Blog on Monday to see if you are the lucky winner of the Calorie Free stamp set!

See you tonight at the November Release Party on the Splitcoast Forum after Halloween, at 10:00 p.m. EST, for even more chances to win! Bring a drink and any leftover candy. ;)
