Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge # 27 – ‘Winter Wishes’

Hello sweeties!! I’m so happy you stopped by the blog today!

The votes are in and I’m thrilled to announce the winner of the Paper Sweeties December Inspiration Challenge #26 – ‘Happy Holidays’:  Sierra Winters!


Sierra’s adorably sweet mitten with homespun patterned papers, burlap, lace, chipboard and embellies captured our hearts this month!  Contact me, Sierra, to claim your gift certificate for a shopping spree and get the challenge details for your Guest Designer spot next month!

Now, we have Paper Sweeties January Inspiration #27Winter Wishes to share with you all!!  Paper Sweeties hosts monthly challenges right here on the blog! Each month on the 1st we will have a brand new inspiration for you to play along with. You can enter as many times as you wish throughout the month — the more times you enter, the more chances you’ll have to win!

It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to create, share and win:

1. CREATE a NEW project based on the current inspiration graphic using any of your favorite crafty supplies — receive an EXTRA VOTE if you use something from Paper Sweeties such as a stamp, die or embellishment!  If you don’t have any stamps from Paper Sweeties yet, we have some complimentary digital images for you to try out!  Use this month’s graphic as a starting point for your project — be inspired by one or more of the colors, shapes, theme — anything goes … most important — HAVE FUN and let our photo inspiration spark your creativity!

2. POST a DIRECT LINK to your project in our link gallery below — please link to your project post (not your entire blog) so we can easily find your creation. You do not need to have a blog to enter — you can use any of our online galleries to upload your project:  Flickr, Pinterest, Facebook or Splitcoast Stampers (keyword papersweeties)!

3. LINK back to this blog post so your readers can easily find us!

Our challenge will run for the entire month. You can play along as many times as you wish and combine with as many other challenges as you want — the more times you play, the more chances you have to win! The challenges will end at 12 pm EST on the last day of each month. The new challenge and winner will be revealed on the 1st of each month!

I LOVE sweet little snowmen!  I don’t enjoy winter because I don’t like the cold, but I sure do love cute snow people!!  This one is no exception with his matching damask hat and scarf … and his adorable little birdie friend sitting on the fence beside him!
