Let the February *new* stamp peeks begin!

Hello Sweeties friends and welcome to Day #1 of the *new* stamp peeks for the month of February!  I am tickled to share these new stamps with you all ... I just know you are going to love them as much as I do!  This month's theme is very near and dear to my heart -- tea and tea parties!  I adore hosting and attending tea parties with my girlfriends ... they are so much fun!  Who doesn't enjoy sitting and sipping tea with the girls while snacking on tea cookies and finger sandwiches??  They always remind me of days gone by when times were simpler and less hectic ... we need more of those days in our lives for sure!

So, without further ado, let's get the peeking started!  {Visit each designer's blog for additional photos of each project).

Paper Sweeties | Plan Your Life Series: August 2018!

Scroll down to bottom to see special news about our 6th birthday celebration!

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 July 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 post' dates along with my special events, appointments, birthdays, etc. for 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 in her birthday party best dress?!?  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 July ... they are the days of the July Day Crop at our new Bed and Breakfast - The Carriage House B&B - in Carthage, NC!

And, we have some VERY SPECIAL NEWS to share with you!  Paper Sweeties turns 6 years old this month!  It is so hard for me to believe that it was August of 2012 when I first launched my stamp line.  Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine all the places I would travel to introduce these fun and unique stamps to such fabulous people from all over the country!  Through these travels, I've met some wonderful people and made life-long friends!  It's been an amazing experience and I feel very blessed for all of your valued support!  I have some exciting things planned to share with you all month long in August, so please bookmark our blog, follow us, sign up for our newsletter and join our Facebook Group (all links on sidebar --->) to keep up to date with the latest news, specials and giveaways!
