Before I get on to the challenge and the amazing samples (yup, plural. I have two to show you today), let's first congratulate the randomly selected participant from our last Pin-Sights Challenge. Remember, YOU could win a $50 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store just by playing along.

A friendly recap of what the Mix it Up Challenge is... It’s a challenge where we invite one manufacturer to contribute a design that combines Essentials by Ellen stamps/dies with their product to inspire our readers!
For our July challenge, we are giddy to mix it up with Paper Smooches! We are honored to not only have THE Kim Hughes, OWNER of Paper Smooches joining us, but also Emily Leiphart, one of the fabulous Paper Smooches design team members with us today showcasing some products from both Paper Smooches and the Essentials by Ellen line. All the exact supplies are listed at the end of this post for your convenience. Are you ready for the to see their amazing projects? Alrighty then! Let's get to it!!!
I adore how they paired products from both lines to create two adorable and completely different cards! Be sure to click on the links under the pictures to be taken to their blogs to get all the details on these cards!
