Paper Sweeties | January 2019 Winter Inspiration Day #1!

Hello crafty friends -- welcome to day #1 of the January 2019 Winter Inspiration Blog Hop 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 project, I am sharing a layout I created using the *NEW*  Merry Christmas Y'all stamp set and coordinating Merry Christmas Y'all Sweet Cuts die set which was released in December  --  (Click on the photos for larger views!)

I ... am ... SMITTEN with this adorable set ... and plan to create some add-on sets to coordinate with it!!!  What would you like to see added to put in the back of that CUTE truck??

My girlfriends and I get together every year for a holiday tea party and ornament exchange!  Last year we had to skip it because I was moving, but this year we're all settled into our new Bed & Breakfast, so I had great fun hosting the girls and showing our new nest to them!

On Christmas Eve, our son and daughter-in-law spent the day with us ... we created gingerbread houses, had a delicious traditional Polish holiday dinner, opened presents, watched a holiday movie and then ended the festivities with some yummy desserts!

Don't you LOVE this patterned paper with the truck and tree on it ... I'm smitten!

And, of course, our little photo bomber, Bailey, had to get in on the action too!

A couple stamp & die sets from Paper Sweeties along with some adorable patterned paper and stickers from Doodlebug (links to products in gallery below)!

Be sure to scroll down to grab the coupon for our end of year BLOWOUT SALE!

And I also created a coordinating 3-D house using a paper mache box from the craft store and all of these yummy goodies ...

How CUTE is Mrs. Claus with her delicious candy cane!

And, of course, Santa is popping out of the chimney 🙂

I covered the box with patterned papers and embellished with stickers ...

... added vellum to the windows so I could put a flame free candle inside to light this sweet house up at night!

And the addition of some chunky glitter for 'snow' finishes this darling cottage off!

How cute would an entire village of these little houses be all decorated differently with coordinating papers?  Note to self: next year!

And one final project ... you'll remember the Halloween theme frame I created with Doodlebug stickers -- well, I did the exact same thing with Christmas theme stickers to change for the current season!

For today's project share, I have used our FUN Treat Box die and turned it into a Santa belly!

His beard was created using our Scallop Circle die and then I added some chunky glitter.  I punched 3 circles and cut a strip from black cardstock to create the buttons and belt.  The buckle was made using an old punch from my stash.

I added a fun nosegay using one of our chenille candy canes and a tag which I stamped using a sentiment from our Merry set and then embossed it with red glitter embossing powder!

Sweet New Baby | Girl |

Hi crafty peeps!  I'm popping in today to share a very special little something I recently created for a very special lady's upcoming special delivery from the stork!  Lesley Croghan was a wonderful member of the Paper Sweeties Creative Design Team for a while, and we were so blessed to have her sharing her talents with us all using goodies from our shop!

I couldn't be any happier for Lesley and her hubby ... I am sure they can hardly wait for their little bundle of joy to make her appearance!

I created this 'sweet' card using the negative dies cut from the card I created and posted yesterday for the Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop!  The scalloped frame is coming soon to Paper Sweeties on April 15th ... the image and sentiment were stamped using the Bundle of Joy stamp set and then die cut using the Bundle of Joy Sweet Cuts set!  The small heart was die cut using the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts set!

I'm sharing my card with the current March 'anything goes' Challenge at Paper Sweeties - inspired by the colors!

So happy for you, Lesley!  I cannot wait to see pictures of Little Miss Croghan once she makes her debut!  Thank you to Lori and Nancy from the Paper Sweeties Design Team for organizing this fun hop!  Hugs - xoxox

Welcome to the 3rd and final day of the annual holiday Visions of Sugarplums Blog Hop hosted by Lori Hairston!  I'm thrilled that Lori invited me to share some projects again this year and hope my creations will help spark your creativity this holiday season!  CLICK on the photos to see larger views!

papersweeties-debbie-12-7-16(1)papersweeties-debbie-12-7-16(8)

For today's project share, I made a garland to decorate a mantle or hang on the tree!

papersweeties-debbie-12-7-16(2)papersweeties-debbie-12-7-16(3)

I strung this garland along a pine bough lit with white jingle bell ornaments for you to see how you use the project to decorate your home or office ...

papersweeties-debbie-12-7-16(10)papersweeties-debbie-12-7-16(4)

... but this one is being mailed to my son that lives up in Philly.  He will be putting up his very first Christmas tree in his apartment this year, so he is in need of some decorations!

papersweeties-debbie-12-7-16(9)papersweeties-debbie-12-7-16(5)

I think he'll like this handmade from the heart decoration ... what do you think???

Visions of Sugarplums Blog Hop with Paper Sweeties | Day #2

announce 2016

Welcome to day #2 of the annual holiday Visions of Sugarplums Blog Hop hosted by Lori Hairston!  I'm thrilled that Lori invited me to share some projects again this year and hope my creations will help spark your creativity this holiday season!  CLICK on the photos to see larger views!

papersweeties-debbie-12-5-16(2)

I created another couple of 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" cards for today's project share!  This design is simple and quick (perfect for our busy schedules this time of the year), and would make a sweet thank you or birthday card for the winter season!

papersweeties-debbie-12-5-16(1)

 I added faux stitching to the kraft cardstock base using a chalk marker and then stamped the sentiment using the Let it Snow stamp set.  I die cut the mitten from patterned paper using the Stitched Tags #2 Sweet Cuts set and then die cut the mitten cuff from white felt.  The beautiful holly and berries was created by die cutting the leaves from green glitter paper using the Holly Days Sweet Cuts set and then adding some sparkly 'berries' using the Mistletoe Sequins mix!  To finish this card off, I tied some Cupcake Seam Binding on the top of the tag!

papersweeties-debbie-12-6-16(1)

My second card today is another  simple and quick design that can be easily mass produced - especially since you are stamping the tree twice to make this one card (once in red and once in green), so you're doubling up and saving time!

papersweeties-debbie-12-6-16(2)

 I added faux stitching to the kraft cardstock base using a chalk marker and then stamped the sentiment using the Merry and Bright stamp set.  The scalloped circle was cut using a die from my stash and then I added the mixy-matchy adorable little tree inside the circle.  To create the multi-color tree, I stamped the tree image from the Trim the Tree set twice in two different colors, die cut using the Trim the Tree Sweet Cuts set, fussy cut along the horizontal lines and then paper pieced the tree back together, alternating the colors - easy peesy!  The star was die cut from gold glitter paper using the Trim the Tree Sweet Cuts set!

Visions of Sugarplums Blog Hop with Paper Sweeties!

announce 2016

Welcome to day #1 of the annual holiday Visions of Sugarplums Blog Hop hosted by Lori Hairston!  I'm thrilled that Lori invited me to share some projects again this year and hope my creations will help spark your creativity this holiday season!  CLICK on the photos to see larger views!

I created a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card using Sweet Emma!  I love making smaller sized, square cards ... and the extra cardstock that is cut off the end of a full sheet of paper is perfect for little bits and bobs and great for paper piecing smaller things onto larger images - like Emma's outfit!  First I stamped Emma onto vanilla cardstock and then die cut her using the Emma Sweet Cuts die.  To dress her for taking a walk outside in the blustery snow, I used the Let it Snow stamp set!

  First I stamped the hat, coat and boots onto white cardstock.  Next I stamped the hat, coat and leggins on patterned paper.  I cut out all the outfit images and then had fun dressing Emma - aka paper piecing the images onto the Emma body base!  Paper piecing is the most FUN thing to do ... as a little girl, I used to play with paper dolls for hours and hours, and now that I'm a grown up girl, I still love to play dress up!  I die cut the snow drift with white glitter paper using the Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts set, stamped the sentiment using Thanks Snow Much and then added some sparkly snowflakes using Winter Mix Sequins!
