Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series | April 2017

Welcome all of our fabulous planner, calendar and organizer friends -- today's the day we are sharing inspiration and ideas using some FUN Planner sets from Paper Sweeties!   These amazing sets will help you plan your life in style with Paper Sweeties this year!

 You can use our versatile planner stamps not only on planners and calendars, but on tags, cards, invitations, layouts, place cards, save the dates -- anything paper crafty!  So, without further ado, let's get to peeking at my March calendar and planner pages (CLICK on photos for larger views):

I love, love, LOVE my 2017 MAMBI Create 365 Happy Life 2017 planner!

Way more user friendly than the brand I had last year ... the pages are removable which makes it very easy to stamp -- especially as the year progresses and the calendar gets filled up with lots of bumpy goodies!

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!

I stamped all the special days throughout the month using a variety of the amazing planner stamps available at Paper Sweeties!

I marked holidays and special days with glitter tape I cut into banner shapes.   I stamped 'challenge' 'blog' and 'new product release' dates along with my shows this month!

I added adorable mixy-matchy Washi tape throughout the month to decorate and add some fun color!

And, how cute is sweet little Abigail dressed in her rain coat, hat and boots!?!?!

I'm addicted and I know you will be too when you start to plan your life in style with Paper Sweeties Planner Series goodies!

Products used from the Paper Sweeties boutique listed below:

And, I have a little bonus project ... a 3 1/2" x 5" mini calendar that I display on a wooden base and then change out the featured card each month!

Products used from the Paper Sweeties shop:  Bunny Hugs and Kisses, Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter, Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts, With Love Sweet Cuts, Sweeties Wagon, Sweeties Wagon Sweet Cuts, Wagon Add-on: Bloom & Grow, Wagon Add-on: Bloom & Grow Sweet Cuts, Cupcake Sprinkles Sequins.

I just love this sweet little fella from the Stand Add-on: Scarecrow stamp set and coordinating Stand Add-on: Scarecrow Sweet Cuts die set!  I stamped his little clothes on patterned paper and then paper pieced them onto him.  I colored some of his elements with glitter markers and gave him some rosy cheeks using chalk.  The pole he is on was cut using one of the pieces from the *NEW* Thankful Sweet Cuts set!

papersweeties-debbie-9-15-16(3)

The banner sentiment was stamped onto a stitched banner from the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts set using the Sweeties Wagon stamp set.  The garden stake was cut using the Garden Time Sweet Cuts set and the sentiment was stamped using the Sweeties Wagon stamp set again!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(9)

The wait is over -- it's a NEW year and we have a darling NEW card kit for you to enjoy this month!  The four projects included in our January kit have a fun winter-inspired theme with plenty of chubby little snowmen, warm mitten, snowflakes and cute Miss Abigail all bundled up for a chilly winter day!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(2)

The first card is clean and simple with a crisp white and cool blue color palette.  Splashes of blush and kraft add a little warmth to this chilly=theme card!  All those snowflakes make me smile ... I love them in craft projects but not IRL!  We used Thanks Snow Much, Snowflakes Sequins and Cupcake Sprinkles Sequins to complete this cutie patootie!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(1)

The next project is a wintery tag - perfect to attach to a thank you gift or sweet treat!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(4)

I love the woodgrain embossing on the tag base ... and Mr. Frosty is one of my favorite stamps!  We used Snow Friends, Snow Friends Sweet Cuts, Thanks Snow Much, Blueberry Seam Binding, Snowflakes Sequins and Marshmallow Sequins to whip up this fun tag!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(3)

The next project is a pretty card with a yummy gingham mitten complete with a felt cuff and satin flower - love the amazing texture and mix of patterns & colors!

This card was also created for the new challenge at The Card Concept -- I was inspired by the MITTENS and WARM WINTER theme!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(6)

We used Stitched Tags #2 Sweet Cuts and I Love You to complete this little beauty!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(5)

The final card in this month's kit is a little gem with some fun paper piecing elements!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(8)

Abigail couldn't be any cuter dressed in her winter coat, hat, mittens, leggins and boots -- love the pink fur trim on her clothes ... she is so adorable pulling her little wagon filled with snowballs!

papersweeties-January 2016 Kit(7)

We used Abigail, Abigail Sweet Cuts, Sweeties Wagon, Sweeties Wagon Sweet Cuts, Let it Snow, Wagon Add-on: Snowballs and Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts to create this {sweet} card!

Paper Sweeties Inspiration #38:

papersweeties-inspiration#38

HOW will YOU be inspired this month -- colors, theme, shapes, patterns?  I was inspired by the theme, shape, ornament, bells, holly leaves and sentiment in this beautiful holiday photo (CLICK on the photos for close up views):

papersweeties-debbie-12-1-15(6)

I created sweet little ornaments by turning the Snow Globe from the  Snow Time Sweet Cuts set upside down and die cutting it eight times using a variety of different patterned papers!  The 'JOY' sentiment was die cut using the Joy Sweet Cuts set!

papersweeties-debbie-12-1-15(7)

I enjoyed creating eight different ornaments with coordinating papers and embellishments!

papersweeties-debbie-12-1-15(5)

This cutie pie is dotted with aqua Stickles!

papersweeties-debbie-12-1-15(8)

The holly leaves were created using the Holly Days Sweet Cuts set!

papersweeties-debbie-12-1-15(4)

I had just the perfect mini pink flocked tree to decorate with all of these adorable and sweet handmade ornaments!

papersweeties-debbie-12-1-15(9)

Bells and baubles ... sequins and glitter ... ribbons and flowers!

papersweeties-debbie-12-1-15(2)

Here I added a couple of the delicious Snowflake Sequins - I love the white on white!

papersweeties-debbie-12-1-15(3)

And then I created a pretty tree topper with aqua tulle, a pink & white chenille candy cane and some more fun baubles!

papersweeties-debbie-12-1-15(10)

I LOVE how this tree turned out ... what do you think??

papersweeties-debbie-12-1-15(1)

And, I put a little snow globe I created several years ago under the tree ...

DSCN3255

I used the Little Wishes and Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts to create the tiny tag!

papersweeties-debbie-12-1-15(11)

The snow globe is a tiny canning jar and I put a glittered pine cone and some glitter snow inside, then decorated the top with pretty bits and bobs of treasures from my craft baskets!

This CAS card just makes me smile ... how about you??  I love the bright, cheery and FUN colors ... and am smitten with the wagon full of pretty little blooms!!  The rainbow and clouds were stamped, colored, glittered and fussy cut.  The wagon was stamped, colored and die cut.  The blooms and grass were die cut -- the grass was then embossed with polka dots.  Beautiful little sequins were added to the centers of the blooms to mimic the colors in the rainbow!

... for this month's release, my projects are ALL about PAPER PIECING!  I LOVE to paper piece and this card is certainly no exception!  It was ENTIRELY paper pieced and SO MUCH FUN to create!  I love the mixy-matchy papers and untraditional autumn color palette!  The *NEW* Stand Add-on: Scarecrow Sweet Cuts die made this card come together in a SNAP!  I stamped all the fun images onto patterned papers, die cut them and then put the pieces all together to create this little sweetie!  **FUN**
