Paper Sweeties September 2015 Release Rewind!

Welcome back my friends!  I hope you've enjoyed the past three days of project shares from the design team here at Paper Sweeties -- we have the most talented girls on our team -- their creativity just amazes me each and every month!  Before we close out this month's release festivities, I have one more project to share with you created using a combination of new goodies with previously released products!  (Click on the photos for larger views!)

papersweeties-debbie-9-16-15(2)

I used the *NEW* Homegrown stamp set and Homegrown Sweet Cuts set to create this fun card!  Bonus:  this card is one of the four projects contained in this month's September Kit!

papersweeties-debbie-9-16-15(1)

 I stamped the sentiment onto a tea-stained tag using the Thanks Berry Much stamp set and then tied it onto a Strawberry Seam Binding bow using some Green Apple Baker's Twine.  I created a rouched ribbon ruffle with more seam binding and added some pretty Peppermint Sequins.  To finish off this {sweet} card, I stamped the strawberry from the Homegrown set, die cut it using the Homegrown Sweet Cuts die set, colored it with glitter markers and then adhered it to the base of the card.

Paper Sweeties: August *new* product RELEASE PARTY!

Yippiee ... it's FINALLY HERE!  Today is a BIG, BIG ... BIG day here at Paper Sweeties! First, today is Paper Sweeties' official 1st BIRTHDAY!    Exactly one year ago today, the first Paper Sweeties stamps were launched on our shiny and brand new website!  Boy, what a fast and fun year it has been!

1stBirthday

Next, my very sweet friend, Suzi, and I are beginning our excellent road trip adventure today -- headed to Charlotte, NC for the amazing Creating Keepsakes Convention!  I can't thank my friend 'enough' for volunteering to go with me to help out in the booth this weekend ... I am truly blessed with such wonderful, caring, generous and thoughtful friends!  I just 'know' there will be a lot of giggling, late night girlie pajama parties, yummy meals out ... and tons of CRAFY FUN this weekend!  I'm looking forward to seeing many of the Paper Sweeties fans at the show ... and can't wait to make some new friends too!  I'll be back here next week to share photos from the show ... stay tuned 🙂

CKC

I also have a group of gals that I stamp with each month attending the show for a girls' weekend - Joanie, Megan, Martha and Cindy ... what FUN we'll all have together!!

The next BIG news is that today's THE DAY ... all of the NEW AUGUST STAMPS are now LIVE in the Paper Sweeties boutique!  Let's meet the newest members of our line up:

PS-86'Celebrate' - created especially for our 1st Birthday!

PS-85'Borders'

PS-77'You Are'

PS-81'A Friend Is'

PS-80'Thanks Berry Much'

PS-aug2013(bundle)

August Release Bundle - all five new sets at a 20% discount!

And ... for our final BIG NEWS for today ... ready, set, here we go!  You asked for it and we listened!  Paper Sweeties is pleased to introduce:  SWEET CUTS ... steel metal dies to coordinate with the Paper Sweeties acrylic stamps!  Whooo hoooo!  I've been keeping this little news under my hat for a couple weeks while all the logistics were worked out, but today's the day I can finally share this exciting news with all of you!  Today, for phase one of our steel metal die launch, we are introducing four Sweet Cuts metal dies to coordinate with the four paper dolls we currently offer - Abigail, Emma, Jake and Sophie!

Abigail-SCAbigail Sweet Cuts

SC-EmmaEmma Sweet CutsSC-JakeJake Sweet Cuts

SC-Sophie

Sophie Sweet Cuts

Sweet Cuts dies will help you create fun cards, adorable scrapbook pages, sweet treats and pretty little gifts lickity split -- stamp, cut, decorate and ENJOY!  The Sweet Cuts dies are wonderful for little hands too -- they allow for easy 'mommy and me' craft projects -- no fussing cutting for little hands or asking mom to cut out for them!!

A big thank you to my crafty friend, Tina, for brainstorming with me on the naming these {sweet} dies 🙂

We are also offering each of the Sweet Cuts dies packaged in a BUNDLE with the coordinating acrylic stamp at a 20% savings!  So, are YOU as excited as I am about the Sweet Cuts??  I got to play with them for the August release and ooohhh are they fun!  Instead of fussing cutting the paper dolls, one quick crank through my Big Shot machine and viola - done!   Easy peesy!  LOVE!!!

Paper Sweeties | July 2016 Blast From The Past Day #2

Hello crafty friends!  This month we are taking a little vacation from our regular monthly schedule.  We will not have a new product release this month -- instead we are giving our talented design team some much deserved time off to enjoy summer and vacation time with their family and friends!  Some of us will be sharing NEW projects created with previously released products, some of us will be sharing oldie but goodie FAVORITES with a blast from the past post each day and some of us will be sharing BOTH!  Without further ado, let's get today's party started!

Paper Sweeties | January 2016 Card Kit is here!

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!

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!

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!

SC-164

Sugar and Spice Sweet Cuts

Adorable, right???  The tree was created by popular demand ... I got many, many requests for a Paper Sweeties tree!  This set can be used year round - super cute decorated for spring, Easter, birthday, Halloween and more!  And ... who doesn't love a gingerbread man (or lady)???  Okay, without further ado, let's get onto my project shares for today!  Grab a cup of something yummy, sit back and enjoy!!!

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

Instead of showing you ways to use our new sets on cards, I decided to focus my projects on gifts you can make and give this holiday season!

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(3)

I L-O-V-E giving handmade from the heart treasures to my family and friends all year long, but especially during the holidays!

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

This sweet shaker gingerbread lady is so cute - a little shabby with lots of added baubles and bling!  Our Sweet Chips kits have been an INCREDIBLE HIT -- the first two shipments sold out almost immediately -- our third shipment arrived today, so ALL six kits are NOW BACK IN STOCK --  grab some before they sell out again!  Recreate using these goodies from the paper Sweeties boutique:


Next, I have another gingerbread-themed gift set to share!  

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(4)

  I purchased a pack of gold glitter foam shapes from the Dollar Store and used them to die cut the gingerbread man from our Sugar and Spice Sweet Cuts set!  There were 10 shapes in one pack for $1 - what a deal!  

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(5)  

I die cut his eyes from black cardstock, tied a red ribbon around his neck, added a gingham ribbon bow, a Rusty Bell and put a Chenille Candy Cane in his little hand!  He is adorning a package of Ghirardelli Peppermint Hot Cocoa - YUM!  

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(6)

  To go along with the hot cocoa, I created a gift bag to hold some Pepperidge Farm Gingerman Cookies!  

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(7)  

I stamped the gingerbread man onto a muslin bag using the Sugar and Spice stamp set, added some washi tape on the bottom and embellished with a stamped lollipop from the Let's Party stamp set along with bits and bobs of little treasures!  

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(8)

  I added the cookies inside a glassine bag and folded the flap over securing with more washi tape.  Two sweet Paper Straws were included for sipping the hot cocoa - wrapped with polka dot ribbon and topped off with a 'sweet' sentiment tag stamped using the Sugar and Spice set!  

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(9)  

These would make perfect teacher, hostess, secret santa/co-worker gifts and wonderful stocking stuffers!  I'm going to make a bunch to give to my friends this holiday season!  Recreate using these goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique:  

     

Next, I have a homespun little charmer to share created using the Sweet Chips - Tree!

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(10)

I created a shaker card -- embossed the kraft cardstock back layer and added Strawberry Sequins inside!

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(11)

I created garlands to decorate my tree using kraft cardstock and the Merry and Bright Sweet Cuts die set!

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

The presents were created using the Let's Party stamp and coordinating Sweet Cuts die sets - some were colored with glitter markers and some were paper pieced with papers!

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(13)

I added a crocheted doilie to the bottom for the tree skirt and a snipett of twill tape ribbon to the top so that this adorable shaker tree could be hung -- cute on a door knob or even hung on the tree!  Recreate using these goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique:


The next projects I am sharing are oh-so-sweet!  I recently saw a version of them shared on Facebook and knew immediately I wanted to give these little cuties a try!

  papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(14)  

These are so quick and easy ... another project that you can make ahead and share with family and friends during the holiday season!  

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

  All you need is some cute cupcake liners, a package of white glass ornaments, some white puffy paint, glitter, baubles to decorate your 'cupcakes' and any stamps and dies you'd like to use to embellish!  

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(16)  

The most difficult part of this project is waiting for the puffy paint to dry -- it takes a long time!  I let mine dry for several hours, and then while it was still tacky, I sprinkled glitter onto the paint for some sparkle and shine!  

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(17)

  I used the Merry and Bright & Sugar and Spice stamp sets to stamp the sentiment tags.  The leaves were die cut using the Holly Days Sweet Cuts set.  The 'berries' are glass beads used for jewelry making.   papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(18)

  I will be adding these adorable little handmade cupcakes to my white candy theme tree - perfect!  Again, these make wonderful gifts for the holidays - great for teachers, co-workers, friends, hostess gifts ... wouldn't these looks adorable as table favors at a holiday tea party???  Note to self!!!  

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(19)

  Recreate using these goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique:


The final project I created to share today is another Sweet Chips kit turned into a shaker - LOVE!

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(21)

The Sweet Chips - Snow Globe is so much FUN to decorate!  I turned my project into a shaker by adding some Snowflake Sequins!

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(22)

I love the little scene created with the snowman, tree ... and how cute are those tiny felt mittens (old Stampin' Up! from my stash)!

papersweeties-debbie-12-2-15(20)

The Sweet Chips kits are quite addictive ... I've decorated all six we currently carry and can't wait to make some more!  You could turn the globe upside down and make it a fish bowl!  Or leave 'as is' and turn it into a gumball machine!  So many possibilities and so much fun to create with!  Recreate using these goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique:

Hello Friend – Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop!

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog HopHello crafty friends!  I'm soooo excited to be popping in today to share a little something sweet and shabby I recently created for the Summer edition of the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  You won't want to miss a single minute of the fun and inspiration ... there are so many 'super sponsors' participating this time around -- it's going to be an A-MAZING event, and I'm tickled to be a part of all the creativity!

CLICK on photos to view larger images close up!

I started with a base of Oatmeal Cookie cardstock and then layered on Sweet Berry and Bubble Gum cardstock finishing with a layer of Aqua Screen patterned paper.  I inked all the paper edges with cream paint to create a time-worn look, and then machine zig-zag stiched along the edges.  I die cut a tea pot shape from Floral Bunches patterned paper using the Tea For Two Sweet Cuts die.  I stamped a sweet heart tag on Buttercream cardstock using Cool Pool ink and then die cut the heart using the Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts die.  Next I stamped the 'Hello Friend' sentiment with Sweet Berry ink using the Little Wishes stamp set and attached the 'tea bag tag' to the tea pot with a snipett of aqua twine.

papersweeties-debbie-6-5-15(4)

I added a rouched paper ruffle using text paper and then adhered a length of vintage crochet trim in a coordinating Oatmeal color.  I created a pretty nosegay of paper flowers, pearl trinket pins, pretty glitter leaves die cut using the Party Time Sweet Cuts die set and a beautiful tea-stained Frosting Seam Binding bow.

papersweeties-debbie-6-5-15(1)

To finish my card, I added several lovely, flower-shaped, iridescent Sugar Sprinkles Sequins for a POP of bling!  (Cardstock and ink from Fun Stampers Journey, patterned papers from Recollections by Michael's).
