Oh my gosh, I can't tell you how excited I am for this issue to finally hit the newsstands!  This issue is actually my first cover so it definitely holds a special place in my heart!  Eek, so excited!  

For the blog hop, we were asked to create a card die cutting something other than cardstock/paper.  I've had this cork for longer than I'd like to admit so I decided it was finally time to put it to use.  

I paired the cork up with the clip and some of the latest Paper Smooches stamps!  :) As it turns out, it's pretty easy to stamp on cork. Fun!

To celebrate the release, thank you to the wonderful team at Paper Crafts Magazine, I have one copy of Paper Crafts Die Cutting for Paper Crafters  to give away!  To be eligible to win, simply comment of this post!   You have until Tuesday, November 20th to comment to win, as I'll announce a winner on Wednesday, November 21st! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!  
Next along the hop, you're off to Chan Vuong's blog!

Be sure to make it back to the Paper Crafts Connection blog too, as they are giving away more fun prizes there!
