Papr Pretties Grand Re-Opening Blog Hop!!!!!

This is the last stop in today's blog hop! If you’re arriving from the blog of the amazing Jessica George, you’re in the right place! If you are just joining us on our HUGE PARTY TRAIN, you can head back to the Paper Pretties Blog to start from the beginning. You definitely don’t want to miss out on all of the eye candy (and lots of prizes)!

I can't believe we finally made it to release day! I have been looking forward to today for a couple months!!!! I'm SO EXCITED it is finally here!
Paper Pretties is releasing TWELVE brand new sets today, along with the big Prettie Boutique Re-Opening. All of the new sets will be available for purchase in the Prettie Boutique beginning no later than 7 AM CST today.

For my card, I decided to use one of the new Victoria Case for Paper Pretties images called "Garden Fairy Katie". I ADORE this image. I think she is honestly one of the cutest fairy images I have ever seen! I used Mercy's fabulous Tuesday Sketch #86 for my layout (I flipped the sketch on its side). Katie is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I added some glitter to her wings and flowers. The designer paper is Basic Grey. To finish it off I used some mini Glue Dots to add some White Lightning Glitter Dots.
It’s our party, but the PRESENTS are for you!! Leave a comment right here on this post to enter to win this fabulous stamp set!! I will take comments until Sunday, August 15th at 6 PM CST, and then one Prettie Lucky stamper will be chosen at random to receive this set!! Can’t get a better deal than that! And you can shop now without fear, if you happen to win a set you already purchased (you know you can’t resist these amazing new images!), you may substitute a different set of equal or lesser value in its place.

If we’re going to have a party, we’re going to make it a REALLY GOOD PARTY. Here are the purchase specials for all purchases from the Prettie Boutique:

• Every order placed during release weekend (now through Sunday, August 15th) will receive a free Paper Pretties “Hand Stamped” stamp!
• All orders that total $25 or more (before shipping charges are applied) will receive a free stamp set (Paper Pretties’ choice) in their package!

Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge!

Happy Wednesday! We are only a day away from our brand new stamp release! The excitement is almost more than I can take! We will be having a super FABULOUS blog hop tomorrow with lots of fun and prizes! The hop will start here at the Paper Pretties blog!

Until then, we have our Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge to keep you busy! With all of the new release madness, we decided to make this week's challenge an easy one. The challenge this week is to use ribbon on your card or project! We'd love for you to play along. One random challenge participant this week will win the Paper Pretties set "Angel Wings Sophia". You do not need to use Paper Pretties stamps in order to play along, but if you do, you will get a bonus entry into the drawing! Please be sure to mention our challenge and link back to the Paper Pretties blog in your project posting. When uploading to SCS or PCP please use keyword PWC114. Please be sure to link up your project at the bottom of the challenge post on the PP blog.

Unfortunately I don't have a card to share with you today. I have been crazy busy trying to make sure everything is ready for the release and just couldn't find time to get a card done for today!
My design team on the other hand made some crazy awesome cards for today's challenge so be sure to check out the Paper Pretties blog for lots of ribbon inspiration!

Tire Swing Cooper!

Good Monday morning to you all! I hope you all had a great weekend! The Paper Pretties new release sneak peeks continue today! I am so excited about this release! The new images are SO cute! Today I have a card to share that I made using one of our new Cooper stamps. This set is called Tire Swing Cooper. All 12 new sets will be available in the Paper Pretties store Thursday Aug. 12th at 5am CST.

For my card I stamped Cooper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him with Copic markers. The designer paper is Basic Grey Green at Heart. I also added some Making Memories buttons with some white Karen Foster Scrapper's Floss. I colored the Scrapper's Floss with Copic markers to coordinate with the buttons.

Be sure to check out the Paper Pretties blog for more preview cards from Pam, Frances and Wendy!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a terrific day!

Let the previews begin!!

Happy Sunday to everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! I have tons of exciting things to share with you today!

As you know, Paper Pretties will be having its Grand Re-Opening release this coming Thursday! I am SOOOOO excited to be moving forward after lots of behind the scenes work (and stress) the past couple months! Today we are going to start giving you previews of the new sets!
There are few things I want to tell you about the new sets before we should you the previews:

1. We have 12 new sets being released on Thursday! 5 of them are from our INCREDIBLE veteran illustrator Joni Stringfield and 7 of them are from a brand new Paper Pretties illustrator! I am thrilled to tell you that Victoria Case has joined the Paper Pretties team as our newest illustrator! Victoria is amazingly talented and sweet as can be. You are going to LOVE her images!

2. All NEW Paper Pretties sets from here on out are going to be Clear Photopolymer sets. I want you to know that I did a lot of research and made sure I found the highest quality clear stamp manufacturer possible. I am VERY picky about clear stamps and I am EXTREMELY happy with the quality of our new stamps. The reason for the switch is to make our Paper Pretties sets more affordable for everyone! The new sets will have more sentiments and accessory stamps than the old sets and they will considerably less expensive for you! It also allows me to release more images every month, so it is a win-win situation for everyone!

3. We will be having a blog hop on Thursday, showcasing all of the new releases.

4. The new stamps will be available in the Paper Pretties store beginning at 4am CST on Thursday Aug. 12th. We will also be having several sales specials and prizes!

Do you want to see some previews? Head on over to the Paper Pretties blog for some previews from Frances, Pam, Wendy, Jessica and Jen!

I hope you are all having a wonder day!
