It’s a Party – Day #2!

Welcome back again crafty friends!  I’m tickled that you stopped by today for another little peek-a-boo!  This is the second day of our fabulous Designer’s Birthday Hop to celebrate  the Paper Sweeties 1st Birthday!   I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your sweet comments and e-mails telling me how much you like your Paper Sweeties stamps.  We LOVE our customers — new and old!!

Yesterday, today and tomorrow, we have TWENTY FIVE amazing designer’s who will be sharing sweet treats, cards, layouts, gifts, party favors, home decor and birthday-themed projects — created using a variety of stamps from the Paper Sweeties boutique!  FUN, right?!?

Well, we can’t have a birthday party celebration without gifts, right!  I‘ll be giving away the ENTIRE AUGUST RELEASE to one lucky person — there will be five sets released = $50 retail value!  So, here’s what you need to do to be eligible to win some yummy candy from this three-day hop:

    Cute as can be, Debbie! I see those cupcake liners, which answers my previous question. LOL! Those cupcakes look so YUMMY, and such a great idea to personalize the cups! I always forget what charm I had anyway ;). LOVE!

    Debbie: Nobody rocks Paper Sweeties’ stamps quite like you do! What darling little party favors and treats you’ve made for the hop. Some little girl would be SO thrilled to have the entire set for her party! I would own every set if I could, and make these darling party treats for my niece, Alexa. Thanks for having me join the fun this weekend. I’m honored.
