I'm featuring the We Adore You stamp set, which includes random groupings of your favourite Paper Smooches characters. I flipped out when I saw it and I know you will, too! The sentiments are absolutely perfect, too. It's a must-have stamp set and that you'll reach for over and over.


I added the yellow alien on the right from Little Fella, as well as the faux stitching from Dots & Dashes. The balloons are from the original Balloons Dies and the confetti is from the Big Balloons Dies. The angled hand-cut layers were inspired by my fabulous team-mate Jocelyn Olson.


Links for new release items will be added as soon as the products go live in stores.

Thanks so much for hopping with us today! Remember to check the Paper Smooches Blog on Monday to see if you are one of the lucky winners!!
