Getting to Know Kim Hughes

In CARDS, Podcast by amykunkle1 Comment

Kim is the owner of Paper Smooches, a company that creates stamps and dies for the paper crafting industry. I talk with her all about her creative journey, how she started Paper Smooches six years ago. Listen to the podcast episode here:

Kim started submitting scrapbooking pages to Creating Keepsakes and  entering cards to Paper Crafts Magazine and was accepted and she was on her way.

She was a contributor to many different magazines over the years, and that lead to creating stamps for a stamp company. That company since closed, but six years ago she started Paper Smooches and the rest is history.

Her stamps and dies are cute and whimsical, here is an example of her products (and my seasonal favorites):


and the coordinating dies:


Kim and I talked about her creating fonts for the magazines she’s worked for, and how she draws everything by hand. I especially love the handwritten fonts she does. :)

You can find Kim and Paper Smooches HERE.

Kim and her design team run a challenge each month with a $50 shopping reward for the winner, link up to that HERE.

    I just LOVE Paper Smooches, that is my favorite company for stamps! They are just adorable! To get them to Europe is not that easy, though. I am looking forward to lots and lots more cute stamps and coordinating dies. Keep up the good work!
