Paper Sweeties | Fall 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

It's that time again ... time for the annual Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - 2017!

I decided to make a 2017 version of this sweet little beverage treat box with mini coffee cups that I filled with hot cocoa and marshmallows for this year's fall hop!

I used some of the *new* Mad 4 Plaid patterned papers from Photoplay Paper that are available HERE!

I had so much fun decorating this sweet treat with products available from Paper Sweeties:

We also have KITS for this darling treat set available like we did last year ---> HERE!

And, if you don't want all the patterned papers, straws, jingle bells, twine and images, then download the DIGITAL VERSION only ---> HERE!

You could also put yummy K-cup pods inside the mini coffee cups ... super cute!

These little treat sets would make adorable holiday gifts to give to everyone on your gift giving list this year!

Teachers, co-workers, family, friends ... anyone who you want to give a little something sweet without breaking the bank!

Cookie exchange party favors, hostess gifts, secret Santa treats ...

Paper Sweeties is a hop sponsor again this fall ...

... and a flash prize Super Sponsor too!

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by today and for taking the time to leave a comment letting me know what you think about this yummy set!

Paper Sweeties | Plan Your Life Series: September 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!  (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 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 ADORABLE are Abigail and Jake dressed in their bride and groom outfits ... in honor of my son's WEDDING on September 10th!!!  For tips on how to stamp and dress the dolls from Paper Sweeties, please watch Jill Norwood's videos HERE and 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!

Products used from the Paper Sweeties boutique listed below:

And, I have a BONUS PROJECT to share with you today ...

... my August and September pages for my free-standing wooden desk top wooden calendar display!  August uses: Happy Spring, Happy Spring Sweet Cuts, I Love Summer, I Love Summer Sweet Cuts and Peppermint Sequins.  September uses: Homegrown, Homegrown Sweet Cuts, Marshmallow Sequins, Strawberry Sequins.

Paper Sweeties challenge | August 2017!

Hello crafty friends!  It's that time of the month again ... time for a NEW challenge at Paper Sweeties!  We're CELEBRATING our 5th ANNIVERSARY at Paper Sweeties this month, so be sure to read the entire post for some FUN news!  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 July challenge:  Gail Scott!

We just love the adorable little sail boat Gail cut from an SVG file!   Contact us, Gail, 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 in honor of our 5th ANNIVERSARY:

HOW will YOU be inspired this month -- colors, theme, shapes, patterns?  I was inspired by the theme, colors & tulle/ribbon in this month's beautiful photo!  (CLICK on the photos for close up views):

I am sneaking some *new* sets that will be releasing in the Paper Sweeties boutique on the 15th of the month ... you're going to LOVE our amazing A Friend is & Hugs and Kisses stamp and die sets!  Additionally, I also used some delicious Cupcake Sprinkles Sequins!
