Paper Sweeties | Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hello to all of my coffee lovin' peeps!  I'm so happy to be here sharing a little something I created for the 2017 Spring Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop and thrilled that you have stopped by my lil 'ol blog!

This card was super fun and easy to make using some of the newly released coffee/beverage theme sets from the Paper Sweeties boutique!  I die cut the scalloped frame using something *NEW* coming to Paper Sweeties next month -- stay tuned for our April new product release on the 15th!  The sentiment was stamped using the Keep calm and drink coffee stamp set.  The branch and birds were stamped using the You warm my heart stamp set, and then I die cut the birds using the You warm my heart Sweet Cuts set and popped them up with foam dots.

Cardstock and ribbon is from Fun Stampers Journey: Whip Cream, Sweet Berry and Electric Lime; ribbon is Sweet Berry Gingham.  I used Kaisercraft glitter gel pens to color the image.  SO tweet -- what do you think???

To celebrate this spring's hop, we have a brand new color of sequins released in the boutique TODAYLatte Coffee!  It is a delicious mix of iridescent, flower shaped and circle sequins in 4 different 'latte' shades ... this is a LIMITED EDITION Sequin Mix and only available while supplies last, so grab your cuppa today!

We are hosting a week-long sale in honor of the hop as well ... use the coupon code: coffee to receive 10% off your FULL-PRICE order.  Sale ends March 31st at 11:59 pm EST.

We are once again a proud SPONSOR of the hop and have donated a $25 SHOPPING SPREE for one lucky ducky!

AND, another lucky hop participant will WIN a complimentary stamp and coordinating die of their choice for the FLASH PRIZE we have donated for the hop!  Be sure to visit the CLBH to read about all the rules and guidelines on how to participate and be eligible for all the prizes donated by the AWESOME sponsors!

Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series | March 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!

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 cute is sweet little Emma dressed in her brand *new* dress, leggins and sparkly boots ... ready for a coffee date!?!?!  The outfit set will be available in our shop on the 15th and is called:  Tackle life one cup at a time!

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 along with a SNEAK PEEK of the *NEW* COFFEE Planner Set which will be available on March 15th for our new product release:

And, I have a little bonus project ... a 3 1/2" x 5" mini calendar that I display on a wooden base and then change out the featured card each month ... the card this month was created by our talented Creative Designer, Jill Norwood, and features another one of our fun COFFEE sentiments from the Coffee yes please stamp set!  I created the four leaf clover using our Stitched Tags #1 Sweet Cuts die set along with the Dear Santa Sweet Cuts set (other products used on card:  Abigail, Abigail Sweet Cuts, I Love You, Cotton Candy Sequins)!

Thinking spring!

Hello crafty friends!  I'm on my way today heading to Columbia, SC for the Stamp Scrap Art Tour Show this weekend, but wanted to share a little something sweet I whipped up this week to take as a table display sample for the show!

I made this cute little 3-D basket for the holidays and filled with chocolates.  I thought a pastel gingham version was in order ... filled with Easter grass and sparkle eggs!  I added a darling little bow I picked up from the dollar store along with a crepe paper flower and sweet tag!

These would make adorable party favors ... how cute placed at each person's place setting at your next dinner or tea party!  Fill with candy, tea bags, a gift card, peeps ... any sweet treat!

The inside box was created using a piece of cardstock 4.5" by 5.5" and then scoring on all four sides at 1.5".  Cut on the score lines on four corners up to the first intersecting line - adhere with double sided sticky tape.

I used these goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique to create this treat basket:

I hope I have inspired you to make some of these sweet baskets sometime soon ... they are quick, simple and oh so much fun to give!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge - February 2017!

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

This was a super quick and simple card to create!  I know it looks a little fussy, but trust me - easy peesy!

I layered red cardstock onto the vanilla card base and then added a layer of text pattern paper.  I die cut the heart twice - once for the gingham center and once for the vanilla lacey border.  I die cut the sentiment banner and stamped the sentiment.  I die cut the 'hugs' sentiment and the two polka dotted leaves.  Adhere everything down (I used hot glue for the flower, leaves and lacey heart) and finish off with some BLING!

I used these products from the Paper Sweeties boutique to create this card:
