{Paper Smooches} CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop + Prizes!


We are excited to participate a fun blog hop with the amazing CardMaker magazine girls today! Please check out their blog for a TON of inspiration.


To add some fun to our hop, we are choosing TWO lucky winners to receive a $25 gift code to shop at the Paper Smooches store! Winners will be chosen randomly from the participating blogs.


I die cut the birch trees from white linen cardstock to give it added texture. To maintain a clean and simple look but with depth, I used the Stitched Dies to create a hilly background and sponged some colour to highlight the adorable squirrel from Fanciful Frames. I added tiny pops of colour with three falling leaves, using the Seasonal Tree Dies.


Please hop along to see more wonderful Paper Smooches projects! You have until 11:59pm on September 18, 2015 EST to comment. Winners will be announced on the Paper Smooches blog on September 19th.


Thanks so much for hopping with us!
