I love you more than coupons!

Wow,now that really is love! 
We don't coupon as much here in England as you guys State side do,but we do love a good bargain ;-) and I love watching Extreme Couponing on TLC-the organization in some of those garages is astounding!
Anyway,so I fell in love with the Paper Smooches Market Fresh,but it sadly hasn't seen any ink action...until now! I was struck by the idea that the Hot Spots large base could be a page of newspaper with a coupon already cut out. Sure enough,as always with Paper Smooches,the funny sentiment fit just perfectly in the cut out piece. Then I had the idea to use the chevrons on the other die in the pack as writing squiggles (like you used to do as a child,or was that just me?!) and voila,Hot Spots makes an awesome newspaper!

Yes,that is a lil' Chubby Chum sneaking on there-I think he makes a rather dashing reporter,don't you?

I'm entering this into the Paper Smooches Sparks 'Anything Goes' Challenge, and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

  2. Lol,I knew I wasn't the only one! ;-)
    Thanks Lyd xxx

  3. Oh my goodness Lou, this is freakin fantastic!!! Brilliant use of the hotspot creative. Love it :0) You have to put this on the PS Flickr page xxx

    1. Thanks Jenny-that is praise indeed coming from the Hot Spot queen :-D

  4. That is simply genius. I too love watching couponing and wish we could do it here. Although not sure I'd get through all the weird foods. Imagine 50 tins of spam. You've knocked this one well out of the park!!

  5. Louise, this is incredible! I love your cleverness in using the Hot Spots die as the coupon. Thanks so much for playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Let's Have a Laugh! [A kind reminder to please turn off word verification.]
