I then stamped and colored some cute summer images and adhered them to my card with tape and foam adhesive.

Paper Smooches release #2


Hi Everyone!
Welcome to a new post with Paper Smooche's  latest release! It was such a cool release for all of us who like to journal  For this post I have played with the super fun  Dinky Doodles 1 and 2 and the useful and fabulous Inchies dies.   




By using double sided transfer sheets and the awesome Inchies dies I created lots of Little stickers to use in my planner/calendar. I'm often at work when I add things and I don't Always want to wait to illustrate my notes till I come home.
I also made some Calling cards that I decorated with my stickers. I keep them in transparent self adhesive pockets that I fasten to the inside of the cover of my planner.
