papersweeties-debbie-4-14-16(4)

I am SMITTEN with the sweet grapevine-ish wreath in the *NEW* Happy Spring set!  How cute are those yummy little berries too??  This card was so easy to design and assemble using our new stamps and coordinating dies!  I see many cute ‘add-ons’ coming soon for this set :)

Planner Series: Appointments

The sweet little appointment images along with the coordinating sentiments are cute as can be!  You can use these stamps not only on planners and calendars, but on tags, cards –anything paper crafty!  So, without further ado, let’s get to peeking at my April calendar and planner pages (CLICK on photos for larger views) …

This … was … SO … MUCH … FUN … to … do!  Love the entire month-at-a-glance pages – so colorful and fun to look at again … and again … and again!  I keep my planner close by so I can peek at it throughout the day … and it makes me smile each and every time I flip it open!  I adore the mixy-matchy patterned papers  – so fun!

I started decorating at the very top of the page by adding a banner with the year added with pink sparkle stickers!  Next I added a die cut pink butterfly  We had family visiting from NY the first week of the month, so I was able to document it using some of the new stamps!

I marked holidays with glitter tape I cut into banner shapes.   I stamped ‘challenge’ ‘blog’ and ‘new product release’ dates along with the two shows I am attending in GA and TN this month!

I added adorable mixy-matchy Washi tape strips to the special event days for Paper Sweeties – challenge, blog posts, release and classes that I am teaching this month!

And, how cute is sweet little Abigail dressed in her rain slicker, hat, boots and carrying her polka dotted umbrella — LOVE her to pieces!!!

I created a belly band to go around this package of Keurig K-cups and added a hand stamped tag adorned with a cute sentiment and yummy coffee beans!

To go along with the coffee, I created a little pocket to hold a Panera gift card!  This way the recipient can stop by and pick up something yummy to go along with her cuppa coffee!
