Paper Sweeties | January 2022 New Product Sneak Peek!

Paper Sweeties | January 2022 New Product Sneak Peek!

Hello crafty friends — welcome to day #1 of the January 2022 *NEW* product release here at Paper Sweeties!  I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS MONTHS NEW SETS AND OUR 1ST QUARTER 2022 SWEET KIT – whoo hooo!!!

For today’s sneak peek project, I am sharing TWO adorable calendars I created using some of the *NEW* products released this month and AVAILABLE TOMORROW (links in gallery below)!!!  This month’s new sets are called:  Gnome Add-on: Winter and Gnome Add-on: Winter Sweet Cuts!!  This accessory set is the perfect ‘add-on’ for our Build a Gnome set (links below) which will allow you to ‘dress’ your little gnomies for winter/January, Valentine’s Day/February and St. Patrick’s Day/March!

This is also the release of our 1st Quarter 2022 Sweet Kit (which is only available while supplies last)!  This quarter’s Sweet Kit FEATURES Photoplay Paper’s A Year With My Gnomies patterned papers as well as their Maker’s Series – Decorate Me Calendar!

I combined our *new* stamp and die sets along with some *new* goodies from our 1st Quarter Sweet Kit to create this FUN calendar page layout …  CUTE!!

And, after I finished decorating the January layout from the large Maker’s Series calendar contained in this quarter’s Sweet Kit, I designed a MINI CALENDAR too using additional supplies contained in the kit!

I cut out the pre-printed mini calendar pages, which are 6″ x6″ each, and then created spiral punches using my We Are Memory Keepers punch board.  I ordered some white mini MAMBI discs to bind this mini calendar with, but they didn’t arrive in time for photos in today’s post.

I proceeded to decorate these mini calendar pages using items contained in this quarter’s kit.  NOTE:  I had enough supplies to create 2 complete 2022 calendars (large and mini) AND, there are plenty enough supplies still left over in the kit to create a THIRD calendar.  What you could do is print off a blank calendar found on the internet, and then use the remaining supplies in the kit to build a third calendar.  I would even guess that you would still have some supplies left over after creating three complete calendars!

When 2022 is done, my plan is to use the decorated layout pages as bases for scrapbook layouts, so I’ll have 24 pages ‘completed’ for 2023 scrapbooking – WOW!!!

1st Quarter 2022 Sweet Kit contents:  (1) 10″x10″ Photoplay Paper Maker’s Series 2022 Calendar, 24 sheets of Photoplay Paper – A Year With My Gnomies – double sided patterned papers, 3 sheets coordinating stickers, 1 Paper Sweeties stamp set – Gnome Add-on: Winter, 2 packages sequins.

I can’t decide which calendar I like better … they BOTH came out so adorable!  I plan to keep the large size at my home and will hang the mini calendar at our tiny beach home – perfect!  Also, if you decide you only need the one large calendar, the left over supplies can be used to create cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor and MORE!  The possibilities are ENDLESS with this fun Sweet Kit!

AND, there is a bonus COUPON contained in our 1st Quarter 2022 Sweet Kit that you can redeem to receive 25% OFF ANY OF OUR CURRENT GNOME THEME STAMPS AND/OR DIES so you can add to OR complete your Paper Sweeties gnome collection – wow!
