Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series | May 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 party dress and hat!?!?!

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:  (May calendar) Pretty Posies, Pretty Posies Sweet Cuts, Garden Time, Garden Time Sweet Cuts, Raspberry Sequins, Cookie Dough Sequins; (card designed by Lori Turner) With Love Sweet Cuts, You warm my heart, You warm my heart Sweet Cuts; Cupcake Sprinkles Sequins.

For today's sneak peek projects, first I'm sharing a card I created using some of the new goodies which will be live in the boutique TOMORROW  --  (Click on the photos for larger views!)

  I used the *NEW* You add color to my life stamp and coordinating Sweet Cuts set to create this bright, cheery and fun card!  The amazing scalloped frame is something *NEW* coming to Paper Sweeties tomorrow:  Square Scalloped Frames Sweet Cuts - LOVE!  I added a little sparkle with some Raspberry, Cookie Dough and Blue Raspberry Sequins!!!

My second card was created using the *NEW* Love you to pieces stamp set - beautiful!  This sweet sentiment set is jam packed with gorgeous, all-occasion sentiments that will surely become a go-to favorite of yours!  I used the Square Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts set again to die cut the Lemon Drop frame and the You add color to my life Sweet Cuts set to die cut the 'candles' which are actually crayons!  I stamped the hearts (from the Love you to pieces set) with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with glitter embossing powder, and then finished this card off with some Cupcake Sprinkles Sequins!!

*NOTE* all patterned papers are from Photoplay Paper!

ConGRADulations! – CC#38

38

Hello crafty friends and welcome to my blog today!  I'm popping in to share a little something sweet I created for the latest challenge at The Card Concept!

 papersweeties-debbie-cc#38(2)

I created a stair-step card using a Sizzix die and lots of mixy-matchy yellow patterned papers!  I stamped Abigail and then die cut her using the coordinating Abigail Sweet Cuts die.  Next I stamped the cap, gown, tassel, diploma and hood using the ConGRADulations stamp set, fussy cut them and paper pieced the outfit onto Miss Abigail!  The shoes were stamped using the Jelly Bean Time set and colored with a black marker.

papersweeties-debbie-cc#38(3)

I die cut three banners and then stamped the sentiments on them using the ConGRADulations stamp set.  The banners were attached to the paper pieced heart shapes.  To finish my card, I added some Cookie Dough Baker's Twine to the diploma and three Marshmallow Sequins for a little bit of sparkle!

papersweeties-debbie-cc#38(1)

My niece recently graduated from High School and we will be visiting with them this weekend while attending the Stampfest show in Lakeland, FL -- I can't wait to give this card to Kylie -- I LOVE how it turned out and I hope she likes it too!  I hope you'll have time this week to play along with our pretty color challenge at The Card Concept!

Hugs - xoxo

Hello crafty friends!!  It's that time of the month again ... time for a NEW challenge at Paper Sweeties!  Before we share the new inspiration board, let's congratulate last month's challenge winner ... the votes are in and I’m thrilled to announce our latest winner:  Lin B.

 Lin took inspiration from the polka dots, colors and flowers from last month's inspiration board and we absolutely adore her beautiful card!  Lin used Cookie Dough, Bubblegum, Cotton Candy and Creamsicle Sequins from the Paper Sweeties boutique!  Contact us, Lin, to claim your gift certificate for a shopping spree and get the challenge details for your Guest Designer spot next month!

Paper Sweeties hosts monthly challenges here on the blog! Each 1st of the month we will have a brand new inspiration board to help spark your creativity!  It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to create, share and win:

1. CREATE a NEW project based on the current inspiration board 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 board as a starting point for your project — be inspired by one or more of the colors, shapes, theme — anything goes!

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 challenges will end at 12 pm EST on the last day of each month. The winner will be revealed on the 1st of each month!

HOW will YOU be inspired this month -- colors, theme, shapes??  Here is how I was inspired to create this month (CLICK on the photos for close up views):

Who doesn't love a pretty paper pinwheel ... and polka dots, a paper straw, aqua and hot pink make it twice as fun!  I stamped a cascade of hearts and circles from the Be Happy stamp set on the white background base using Cool Pool ink and added iridescent pink glitter to the centers of the stamped hearts.  Next I created a double-sided paper pinwheel from two fun patterned papers, adhered the pinwheel to a Robin Egg Straw and then attached the pinwheel to the base of my card.

I stamped the sentiment using Watermelon Fusion ink, added a Watermelon Fusion scalloped cardstock border and then tied a length a yellow grosgrain ribbon around the card base.  I die cut a heart shape from the aqua patterned paper using the Be Happy Sweet Cuts set and adhered on top of the ribbon band.

To finish my card, I added Raspberry, Cookie Dough and Robin Egg Sequins to add a pop of SPARKLE and BLING!  I love, love, LOVE the Paper Sweeties flower-shaped, iridescent sequins!  (Sweet Berry cardstock and ink, Cool Pool ink - Fun Stampers Journey).

I had so much fun creating this shabby chic inspired card!  I love the bright and cheery, springy colors too!  I triple layered green, strawberry and white cardstock then added the 'Sweet' sentiment die cut from green cardstock using the *NEW* Happy Sweet Cuts die.  Next I stamped 'as can be' with strawberry ink.  I machine zig-zag stitched around the outer edges and added several pretty Cookie Dough sequins!

I die cut leaves from green glitter paper using the Stitched Tags #1 Sweet Cuts die set and added them behind the pretty paper blooms.  A beautiful white tulle bow, patterned scalloped sticker and white doilie were added to complete today's design!
