Thank You | VIP set free with purchase!

---> SPECIAL 5th ANNIVERSARY ANNOUNCEMENT <---

In honor of our 5th birthday, we are giving all of our valued customers the opportunity to earn SPECIAL GIFTS in August - whooo hooo!  Everyone who places a $25 order through our website (before tax, shipping and discounts) will receive a complimentary VIP 'Thank You' stamp set!  Everyone who places a $50 order through our website (before tax, shipping and discounts) will receive a complimentary VIP 'Thank You' stamp set AND coordinating Sweet Cuts die!

This card was so quick and easy to design and assemble ... I made several so I have some on hand for when I need to give a 'thank you' to someone special!  I die cut the largest die from the Square Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts set twice with white cardstock and then from patterned paper (Photoplay Paper) and adhered to base of card.  I die cut the stitched banner from the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts set, stamped the sentiment and then trimmed the edges to fit inside the square frame.  Using the Thank You stamp set and coordinating Sweet Cuts die, I stamped the basket of flowers and note, die cut, colored and then adhered to base of card.  To finish this little gem off, I added a couple of Marshmallow Sequins for a pop of sparkle!

Not ordering $25 - $50 of products from our website in August ... no problem!  You can purchase the LIMITED EDITION VIP Thank You stamp and die set for the special price of $14!

We'd love for you to play along with the 'anything goes' August Inspiration Challenge at Paper Sweeties - for a chance to win a $25 SHOPPING SPREE!  What fun inspiration we have this month -- will you create a card, layout, sweet treat or something else?

Hugs and Kisses Sweet Cuts

And now for my RELEASE DAY inspiration projects (CLICK on photos for larger views) ...

I used the Square Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts die to make the frame from patterned paper and white cardstock and then stamped the bicycle and sentiment from the *NEW* Hugs and Kisses stamp set onto the white cardstock.  Next I stamped the balloons and flower basket from this set onto scrap white cardstock, die cut them using the Hugs and Kisses Sweet Cuts set, colored them and adhered to the card base -- I added crystal effects on the balloons for some brightness!

For my second card, I created some fun patterned paper by stamping images from the *NEW* Hugs and Kisses stamp set onto white cardstock ...

... I cut a frame out of aqua cardstock and patterned paper using the Square Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts set and then stamped the balloons from the Hugs and Kisses stamp set, colored them, die cut using the Hugs and Kisses Sweet Cuts set, added crystal effects and then adhered them to the card base.  Last, I added some bright and cheery Cupcake Sprinkles Sequins for pops of sparkle and shine!

papersweeties-july5(3)I used the You Make Me Smile and So Sweet of You stamp sets from Paper Sweeties {two of my favorites!} for all the stamped sentiments, added a beautiful twill striped bow from The Ribbon Reel and a snipett of lime green polka dot washi tape ... I think this card says 'Have a Happy Birthday' ... how about you?

Hi crafty friends!  I’m popping in today to share the second card I created for the current challenge over at the Seize The Birthday challenge blog!  The sweet ladies at Seize The Birthday asked if I would sponsor their challenges for the first two weeks in April and guest design too!  Of course, I said yes to both!

papersweeties-seize(5)

This week’s edition of the Seize the Birthday challenge is to create a masculine card based on the sketch provided — easy peesy, right??!!  I love how this turned out - very CAS and fun!  I turned the sketch on it's side!

Hello friends and Happy Easter!!  I hope you're enjoying a beautiful day with your family and friends!  I am blessed to have my two sons home today from college, so hubby and I are enjoying sharing the day with them!  The bunny paid us a little visit and we have some yummy food planned for our holiday meals today!  I love spring -- how about you?

Homespun Elegance Prince Blog Hop

I'm excited to pop in today to share a couple of projects I recently created for a Designer's Hop I was invited to participate in by a sweet stampy friend of mine!  Jessica, from Homespun Elegance, just celebrated the 2nd birthday of her little son, Mason, so in honor of this special occasion, she organized a designer's hop with a few crafty ladies that she knows!  The hop begins today and runs through Tuesday, April 2nd.  Each day a different group of designers will be sharing projects they made that go with a birthday, boy and celebration theme ... how FUN!

So, without further ado ... let's get this party started!  Here's my little boy celebration set ... (click on the photos to see larger images of each project)

This set was just too much fun to create ... so bright, cheery, fun and whimsical!

 I used Jake, Hippity Hoppity, You're My Prince Charming and Banner Wishes to create the card!

 The fun banners were created using the Banner Wishes, You're Invited, You Make Me Smile and You're My Hero stamp sets!

 The fun polka dot and chevron pattern flair pieces were a gift I recently received from my stampy friend, Joscelyn -- they're from her shop: Bossy Joscie!

 YUM!!!  These were so simple to make using chipboard pieces, stickers, flair and sentiment stamped banners ... what a quick and fun way to create pretty party favors and decorations for your next event!

 So, what do you think of my little boy party set?  This can very easily be made into a little princess party by changing the colors and using either Abigail, Emma or Sophie -- dressing them up in a pretty party dress for your special event!

Be sure to hop on over and check out the fun projects created by the rest of the designers on today's hop schedule:
