Welcome to the Stampin’ Addicts 5th Saturday Stamp Jam and Blog Bounce! The Stamp Jam officially starts on March 31, 2012 at 9am Eastern Time. Each hour, a challenge will be posted for you to play along with in the Stamp Jam Thread over on the Stampin’ Addicts site. I am excited to be one of the hostesses. I am featuring the third challenge, which highlights the new Summer Smooches line. This is available for purchase during the month of April, and then again when the next Stampin’ Up catalog begins in June. If you don’t have these products yet, go ahead and create something featuring the Summer Smooches colors — Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, and/or Tangerine Tango.
The first project I have for you uses the sketch from Stampin’ Addicts Sketch Challenge #128 and features three of the designs in the new Summer Smooches designer series paper. It also has the yummy new Daffodil Delight seam binding! (I used two layers of it so it wouldn’t be so sheer.)
Stamps: Perfect Punches
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Island Indigo
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White, Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper
Other: Daffodil Delight Seam Binding, Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
My second project is a trio of thank you notes. They were super easy to make with the Summer Smooch paper and my Simply Scored! Come back later in the week and I will have a closer look at the these three cards for you.
Stamps: Thank You Kindly
Ink: Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango
Paper: Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper

The final project I want to show you today are these adorable purses from the new Petite Purse Bigz L Die. Again, if you come back later in the week, I’ll have a closer look at each one. These purses are fairly small — each holds about four Hershey’s Nuggets. They are super cute and easy to make. The die does cut out a strap for the purse, as seen on the purse on the left. You can easily substitute this for ribbon (on the middle one) or a border punched strap (right). There is a slot for the flap to slip into, so the brads and buttons are merely decorative.

Other: Petite Purse Bigz L Die, Neutrals 5/16″ brads, Printed 2011 In Color Designer Brads, Brights Buttons, Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon, Dotted Scallop Border Punch
