New Paper Pretties & Exciting NEWS


It's OFFICIAL!!! My hard-earned goal of being on a design team this year has come true!

I am so excited to introduce myself as one of the Prettie Girls Guest Designers for July-September! I can't tell you how thrilled I was to get an email last week from my blog buddy Jessie - Can You Say????....Addicted (to stamps)!!!! asking me if I was interested. I should have said, hell0000???? what??? are you kidding???? Of course! but what I said intead was, "ARE YOU SERIOUS?! I would LOVE the opportunity! That's fantastic"

I am bummed I never alloted any of my money to buy any Paper Pretties stamps because they really are so fun (you know I LOVE to color) and of course that's going to change in the near future. I think I need to get a 3rd job now...

Here is a sneak of a new set called Soaking Up The Sun that will be released July 1st. Isn't Sophia & her dog so cute laying in the sun on the big lounge chair? I paper toled the palm tree and for the 'sand' I made faux suede. To do that, you rub your bone folder on a piece of SU! cardstock until it begins to soften. When it is ready, you can pull the 2 layers away from one another.

This set takes me back to a time {was just talking to my co-workers about this last week} when I laid in the lounge chair in my backyard during the summer to get a tan and used baby oil to get darker & spritzed peroxide in my hair instead of buying sun-in for highlights!! Both totally not recommended...my hair turned orange and to think of all the UV ray damage from no sunscreen protection. Living in Central TX, my time in the sun is very limited because I can barely stand it for long periods of time - too hot & humid.

Stuff to Come:

Paper Pretties next release is this Tuesday July 1st at 7pm CST. This will be my first time Stamping in My Jammies (which I change into the MINUTE I get home from work). It will be in the Paper Pretties forum. If you are not registered yet, what are you waiting for? Charmaine will be hosting our challenges and you will love what she has cooked up for us!
Cutie Pie Contest!!
How would you like to be Paper Pretties Cutie Pie? All you have to do is make a card using your Paper Pretties stamps and send it to Christie at christie@paperpretties.net, and she will chose a winner from the entries. Besides getting to call yourself a Cutie Pie, you will also get all the stamps from this release for free!! You have until June 30th at 8pmCST to get your entries in!! Good luck!!
