Paper Sweeties Challenge | May 2017!

Paper Sweeties Challenge | May 2017!

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 of the April challenge:  Leanne!

This 3-tiered card is so bright, cheery and fun!  Leanne used these items from Paper Sweeties to create this beautiful card:  Thinking of You, Sweet Cuts-Window, Sweet Cuts-Window Elements, Hello Friend.     Contact us,  Leanne, to claim your $25 gift certificate prize … and here’s a {sweet} badge to display on your blog!

PS-Winner BadgePaper Sweeties hosts monthly challenges here on the blog and in our Facebook Group! 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 … you don’t have to use products from Paper Sweeties, but we would LOVE if you did!   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 the link gallery below (if using your blog, please link to your blog post not your entire blog so we can find your creation) or UPLOAD a photo of your project to our FACEBOOK GROUP CHALLENGE ALBUM .  No blog or not on Facebook, no problem — you can use any of our online galleries to add your project link:  Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest or Splitcoast Stampers – (keyword papersweeties).  Contact us if you have questions or need assistance!

3. LINK back to this blog post so your followers can find us too!  (Back linked posts will not be considered for the monthly prize).

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!

This month’s inspiration board:

HOW will YOU be inspired this month — colors, theme, shapes, patterns?  I was inspired by the flowers in the inspiration photo along with the buttons in this month’s beautiful photo!  (CLICK on the photos for close up views):

I am sneaking a *new* Sweet Cuts die set that will be releasing in the Paper Sweeties boutique on the 15th of the month … you’re going to LOVE our amazing Circle Scallop Frame Dies!  Additionally, I used these products from the Paper Sweeties boutique to create this sweet card:  Love you to Pieces, Bee Happy Sweet Cuts and Be Happy Sweet Cuts!
