One of my long-time and very good friends recently became a first-time grandma, so I decided to make a little something {sweet} to give to her to help celebrate this blessing!  I hope she likes it!!

papersweeties-debbie-1-15-15(3)

The baby’s name was stamped using the Fancy Monograms stamp set and the squares were die cut using the coordinating square shape from the Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts set.  The carriage, onesie, booties, clothesline and shirt images were stamped using the Bundle of Joy set and then die cut using the Bundle of Joy Sweet Cuts set.  I stamped the birth details onto the die cut shapes using the Alphas Lower stamp set.

Paper Sweeties January 2015 Release Countdown!

Hello sweeties … welcome to day TWO of project shares for the Paper Sweeties January *NEW* Product Release!  Did you LOVE all the ideas shared yesterday by the design team as much as I did??!!??   I’m excited to be sharing another crafty project made using the *new* baby-theme products that will be available to purchase in the Paper Sweeties boutique on the 15th!  (Click on the photos to see larger views).

papersweeties-debbie-1-14-15(1)

For today’s project I created a miniature crib and mobile using lots of fun goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique!

papersweeties-debbie-1-14-15(5)

The crib is a small kraft box that I inked to give it a time-worn look.  I embellished with lace, satin flowers and scalloped velvet trim.  The posts were created using Cotton Candy Paper Straws — I added clear buttons and candy dots to the top of the posts.

papersweeties-debbie-1-14-15(4)

I double cut an oval shape twice with pink cardstock and once with a piece of cardboard and then made a sandwich by adhering the two cardstock pieces to the top and bottom of the cardboard to create stability for the mobile.

papersweeties-debbie-1-14-15(3)

I stamped and die cut adorable little images to hang on my mobile and then attached the pieces with lengths of Peppermint Baker’s Twine.  How CUTE are the giraffe and elephant??  The mobile was attached to the crib by hot gluing a wooden dowel and then a pink terry cloth ‘blanket’ was added to the inside of the crib for bedding.

I love stamps that have coordinating dies … it makes crafting so quick and easy!  The sweet little baby onesie and adorable button images were stamped and then die cut using the coordinating Sweet Cuts die!

papersweeties-debbie-1-13-15(2)

This baby rattle was easy to create using a couple of circle and scalloped circle punches with clear treat cups from Stampin’ Up!  I filled the inside of the rattle with {Sweet}heart Sequins and tied the onesie tag onto a seam binding bow added to the handle of the rattle with a length of yummy pink, white & red Peppermint Baker’s Twine.

Hello crafty peeps!  I hope you’re having an amazing start to the new year so far!!  I’m popping in to share a little something I whipped up for this week’s challenge at The Card Concept — we’re celebrating our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY — whooo hooo!

papersweeties-debbie-cc#26(2)

This is my favorite kind of card to create … all shabby-licious and yummy!  I embossed a piece of blush cardstock with my favorite vintage wallpaper folder and inked over it with kraft paint to create a time-worn look.  I added a yummy Cupcake seam binding bow along with some tulle, trinket pins, button twine and wooden clothespin to complete the nosegay.  A white paper doilie and a couple of punches and dies were used to create the shaped images …

papersweeties-debbie-cc#26(3)

… and then I die cut the banner shape using the Be Happy Sweet Cuts set and stamped the sentiment using the Hello Friend coordinating stamp set.  To finish things off, I added a couple of delicious Robin Egg Sequins for a little pop of sparkle and shine!!
