Xyron and Paper Smooches Day Two - and a Giveaway!

Welcome to day two of the Xyron Design Team's Paper Smooches bonanza! We are loving all of these fun projects and hope they are inspiring you!

Receiving cards is always a treat - but receiving a set of cards as a gift is even better!  On her blog today Ann Corbiere-Scott shares a tutorial for creating this set of whimsical cards.  Who wouldn't be tickled to get these?


Shannon Morgan has created a three-color system for card sets that makes it easy to create gorgeous cards while making each one special.  She shows us all how to do it on her blog today - we've already bookmarked this and can't wait to try it!




Use your stamps to create your own home decor - so easy to coordinate with any theme! On her blog today Sharon Callis shares a tutorial to create this lovely frame, and as an added bonus shares a fun and colorful card as well!


Stamps can add the final perfect touch to any project - and this card from Angela Holt is exquisite!  On her blog today she walks us through how to create this beauty from start to finish - if you haven't made a card for Mother's Day yet then this would be the perfect solution!


If you are loving these projects and wish you could make them yourself - then have we got a treat for you!  Every day this week we will be giving away a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Smooches website - that means you will get to pick your own favorite stamps or dies and have them delivered right to your door.  Simply leave a comment here on the blog - we will announce the winner on our Facebook Page tomorrow.  Thanks - be sure to tune in all week long for more fabulous project ideas and more giveaways!
