Today, I'm sharing some more fun gift ideas for the holidays and winter season ... I used hot cocoa, but these could very easily be created with coffee or tea as well!

I cut 2 pieces of pink cardstock for the front and back of the pocket and hot glued them together around the edges.  I decorated the front of the pocket with cute patterned papers & a sticker from Doodlebug (the Doodlebug goodies used on this project are no longer available in our shop, but I included links to similar papers and stickers that we have available) and then embellished the pocket and spoon using stamps and dies from Paper Sweeties!

Recreate using these products from our shop:

For today's second project, I created another sweet gift basket filled with a peppermint hot cocoa K-cup - yummy!

These little baskets are so much fun to make ... and give!

I just love this winter theme set created with our adorable Mr. Snowman!!!

25 Days of Christmas with Paper Sweeties: 2018!

We're sharing holiday inspiration projects for 25 days here at Paper Sweeties from December 1st through the 25th!  We began yesterday by sharing some fun ideas to help you plan your life in style with Paper Sweeties.  Click here to check out what our talented design teamies created to help spark your creativity!

It's my turn today to share a little something sweet ...

... so, I created a few gifts that will be as much fun to make as they are to give!

First up is another treat basket that I filled with a gingerbread flavored K-cup of coffee!  I decorated the outside of the basket with our sweet little gingerbread girlie!

Then I created a gingerbread couple made out of felt.  I button stitched around the outside of the die cuts and then embellished them both with little bits and bobs of sweet treasures!

These little felt gingers would look cute on top of packages, adorning a tree, tied to gifts or tucked inside a holiday card!  They are super easy peesy to make and so FUN to give!  Recreate using these products from the Paper Sweeties shop:

I created this set using the Basket Sweet Cuts die as well (link for set in gallery above):

Paper Sweeties | Plan Your Life Series: December 2018!

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 December calendar and planner pages (CLICK on photos for larger views):

First, I'm going to show you how my December calendar page from Doodlebug Designs turned out!

Starting at the tippy top, I stamped and then die cut our *NEW* truck and tree from the Merry Christmas Y'all stamp set and coordinating Merry Christmas Y'all Sweet Cuts die set!  I stamped the sentiment under the year ... I'm SMITTEN with this set!!!

I stamped all my appointments and special days throughout the month - including the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop November 30th - December 7th 🙂  December 1st we are hosting a private tour of our home to the local residents who are opening up their homes for the annual Holiday Historic Home Tour in Carthage, NC.  December 2nd we are hosting a public tour of our B&B for the holidays!

Looking forward to having my hair colored on the 7th so it'll look nice for the holidays ... it's been looking a little rough around the edges the past couple weeks!

I'm hosting our annual holiday tea party and ornament exchange for 10 people on the 16th, family arrives for a holiday visit on the 17th and I am hosting the Carthage Garden Club's holiday luncheon for 16 people at our Bed & Breakfast on the 18th.  The 19th I'm going to collapse and do nothing (JK ... too much to do to take a day off)!!

The week after Christmas 'should be' pretty low key since family will have left, so I think I can get a little R&R in!  Much different than the week after Christmas last year ... we were moving from our old house to the B&B beginning December 26, 2017 through December 29th -- and immediately thereafter the nine-month renovation project began!

I love, love, LOVE my 2018 MAMBI Create 365 Happy Life planner!  The pages are removable which makes it very easy to stamp and embellish -- 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 open on my work space so I can peek at it throughout the day ... and it makes me smile each and every time I walk by it!  I adore the mixy-matchy patterned papers!  (CLICK on the photos for close up pics!)

I stamped all the special days throughout the month using a variety of the oh-so-FUN planner stamps available at Paper Sweeties!

  I stamped 'blog post' dates along with my special events, holiday happenings, B&B bookings, appointments, parties, etc. for this month!

I added adorable Doodlebug stickers throughout the month to decorate and add some fun color!  And, how ADORABLE is that Miss Emma dressed in her holiday outfit?!?  For tips on how to stamp and dress the dolls from Paper Sweeties, please watch Jill Norwood's videos HERE and HERE!

The December Day Crop at our Bed and Breakfast, The Carriage House B&B, will be held on the 15th this month!  If you live within driving distance and want to attend, contact me for details!  The sentiment on the 22nd is stamped using our *NEW* Merry Christmas Y'all set!

I'm addicted and I know you will be too when you start to plan your life in style with Paper Sweeties' amazing planner stamps!  Recreate the calendar and these planner pages using these goodies from the Paper Sweeties shop:

Paper Sweeties | Fall & Winter 2018 Coffee Hop!

Welcome crafty friends and fellow coffee lovers!   I'm super excited to share a sweet holiday project I recently created in honor of this years Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop event!

I created this adorable treat basket using a mixture of products available at Paper Sweeties ...

... and filled my treat basket with a Peppermint flavored Hot Cocoa K-cup!

I created a coordinating card to go along with my treat!

I used our newest sentiment stamp set called Merry - LOVE!!!

What a 'sweet' set!  You can filled the treat basket with K-cups, tea bags, candy, gift cards, money, tea cookies, jewelry, etc.  These would make adorable teacher appreciation gifts or party favors!  How about making up a bunch of them for the holidays and then giving them to friends and family who visit you for the holidays!  They are so much fun to make ... and even more fun to give!

We've put together a KIT to make this fun gift set ... everything included to make the treat box and card except for the stamp set - sold separately (links to products in gallery below).

If you already own our sweet Basket Sweet Cuts die, we have a downloadable template (link in gallery below) to create the middle portion of the treat box so you can fill your sweet treat with goodies!

Click here ---> to see our all in one Treat Box Sweet Cuts die that will make a complete box that you can fill with treats (no middle portion needed)!

25 Days of Christmas Tags with Paper Sweeties: 2018!

Hello crafty friends!  I'm super excited to be sharing a couple tags here on my blog today that I created especially for Tracey McNeely's annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags Blog Hop!

I've been a busy bee for weeks creating tons of handmade decorations to adorn a 4 1/5' holiday tree that will be donated to The Festival of Trees annual holiday auction in Pinehurst, NC!  I was contacted this past summer and asked to sponsor a tree on behalf of our B&B, The Carriage House, and of course I said 'YES'!

Under the tree I have several kraft boxes tied up with black & white buffalo plaid ribbon and adorned with some handmade, farmhouse tags using goodies from Paper Sweeties!  This is also a sneak peek of a brand new holiday sentiment set releasing in our shop on the 15th!  I stamped the sentiments using Versamark ink and then embossed with white powder -- LOVE!

Here is a second tag created using another sentiment from this amazing set and a sweet little ornament!

And a third tag created with yet another sentiment and this cozy mitten, die cut from red and white felt!

You can recreate these tags using these items from the Paper Sweeties shop:
