Xyron and Paper Smooches Day Five - and a Giveaway!

The Xyron Design Team has had an AMAZING week with Paper Smooches - and we hope you have been inspired.  We say goodbye with one last giveaway and some incredible project ideas for you!

One of the most difficult things about crafting is finding products/projects that are "dude appropriate".  Jenn Cochran totally nailed it with this card and gift set using the Super stamp set!  From the littlest boy to the biggest any guy would get a kick out of this!


Karen Jiles loved the Pretty Phrases stamp set so much she created two gorgeous projects!  This layout and canvas showcase perfectly how versatile stamps are - from scrapbook pages to mixed media and more.



Speaking of mixed media - how gorgeous is this home decor project from Rhea Freitag?  Paper Smooches dies can cut through everything from vellum to heavy materials.  Think of the possibilities!


We almost squealed with delight when we saw this project from Lori Williams!  Lori turned a simple stamped image in to the focal point of her gift box and it is just as cute as it can possibly be.  We can't wait to try this!


We've got one more $20 gift certificate to the Paper Smooches website to give away - that means someone is going to get to pick a set of their own favorite stamps or dies and have them delivered right to their door.  Simply leave a comment here on the blog - we will announce the winner on our Facebook Page tomorrow.  You also MUST head on over to the Paper Smooches blog - they are giving away a $100 Xyron prize pack!  Yahoo!  Enjoy - and thanks for a fabulous week!

Karen and Jenn are just 2 of my most favorite artists and it's pretty obvious why! Rhea's vintage flower décor is gorgeous and I love Lori's super cute party box!!! Thank you for a most fabulous week of incredible inspiration, ideas and FUN!!! Happy weekend everyone!!!
