You're Unique With Paper Smooches & GlueArts

Paper Smooches and GlueArts hugs to you!

How can you not love this fun combination of our outstanding adhesives and Paper Smooches fun and whimsical stamps!

We asked Kim Hughes to give us a little background on herself and her company...

You may recognize my name from "The Kim Hughes collection" of stamps that I Illustrated for Cornish Heritage Farms in the past. Or possibly from being a Go-to Gal for Paper Crafts magazine. I took a break from illustrating and concentrated on my publication work, but I discovered that I really missed drawing and sharing my art. I literally woke up one morning and decided to start a stamp company and I have been having a ball designing stamps ever since! My images reflect my silly personality and I hope they will bring a smile to your face. I hope that you will welcome Paper Smooches stamps into your creative hands. You can find our more details about me if you click on my resume. 

Thanks's hard to not be creative and want to craft when you work with the adorable stamps you've designed! And proof is in the pudding today when you see what Designers Linda Albrecht and Andrea Budjack have up their sleeve!

Andrea used the "Falling For You" stamp set and shows how bats...are not just for Halloween. They can also make special tags!!  Love how she made her own mini hanger! Linda used the "Swanky Snowdudes" stamps for a glittery, winter shadowbox that reminds us cool weather is just around the corner!
