Paper Sweeties | June 2018 New Release Sneak Peeks!

Hello crafty friends -- welcome to day #1 of the June 2018 *NEW* product release here at Paper Sweeties!  I hope you were inspired on the 1st by the projects the Planner Design Teamies and I shared using our fun planner stamps!  If you missed the festivities, click --> HERE <-- to check out all the creativity!

For today's sneak peek project, I am sharing an adorable treat box I created using some of the new goodies which will be live in the boutique TOMORROW  --  (Click on the photos for larger views!)

I'm SO excited to tell you that we are adding coordinating sets to compliment our versatile Treat Box Sweet Cuts set!  The first in the series is called Treat Box Add-on: Home & Garden, and I am completely smitten with this amazing set!  The sentiment is from the Thank You stamp and die set and fits perfectly on the front of the treat box!

This new set is full of fun little images to create sweet houses, garden sheds, flower shops, cottages, etc.  You can have so much fun filling the treat boxes with a variety of small treasures ... candy, jewelry, a gift card, tea bags or money!  I filled mine with a mini bar of handmade lavender soap that we will be giving to guests that stay with us at our Bed & Breakfast, so I designed this treat box to look like our home - complete with a little snipett of lace on the front door to look like the lace curtains we have!  And, yes, I made the soaps and labels myself too!!  This set was SO MUCH FUN to make!!!

Paper Sweeties | Plan Your Life Series: June 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 June calendar and planner pages (CLICK on photos for larger views):

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 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!  (CLICK on the photos for close up pics!)

I stamped all the special days throughout the month using a variety of the amazing planner stamps available at Paper Sweeties!

  I stamped 'blog posts' and 'new product release' dates along with my special events this month!

I added adorable mixy-matchy Washi tape throughout the month to decorate and add some fun color!  And, how ADORABLE is that Miss Emma dressed for some splish-splash fun!  For tips on how to stamp and dress the dolls from Paper Sweeties, please watch Jill Norwood's videos HERE and HERE!

And, here is a close up of two EXTRA SPECIAL days in the month of June ... they are the days of the GRAND OPENING of our new Bed and Breakfast - The Carriage House B&B - in Carthage, NC!  I am hosting a day-crop on the 23rd, and we have our very first guests staying overnight on the 22nd - driving in from SC to attend the day crop on Saturday!!!  I am BEYOND EXCITED that this day is almost finally here!

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!  Recreate these planner pages using these goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique:

BY CUSTOMER REQUEST we've added a Sweeties Pets SWEET CUTS die set to coordinate with our stamp set!!!  I just love how this fun card turned out ... especially the doggie paw prints!!

The colorful heart border was created by die cutting the border 8 times -- once in white and then 7 more times in all of the colored cardstock.  Then to create the rainbow effect, I simply popped out the white hearts and pieced in the colored hearts ... LOVE!!!

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

Paper Sweeties | March 2018 Blast From the Past day 3!

Hello crafty friends -- welcome to the March 2018 Blast From the Past here at Paper Sweeties!  I hope you were inspired  yesterday by the sneak peek projects the Design Teamies and I shared!

 (CLICK on photos for larger views) ...

Our Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter and Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter Sweet Cuts sets coordinate perfectly with our versatile Basket stamp and Basket Sweet Cuts sets!

I adore this sweet bunny peeking out of the basket and holding the 'Hoppy Easter' sentiment banner!

I stamped and die cut the Easter eggs - which could be jelly beans too - colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and then blended with Gamsol.  I added glitter to the eggs for some pretty sparkle!

The robin egg tulle bow is so pretty ... and to finish things off, I added some pretty Cotton Candy Sequins!  These cards were created using these items from the Paper Sweeties boutique:
