Today, I'm sharing some more fun gift ideas for the holidays and winter season ... I used hot cocoa, but these could very easily be created with coffee or tea as well!

I cut 2 pieces of pink cardstock for the front and back of the pocket and hot glued them together around the edges.  I decorated the front of the pocket with cute patterned papers & a sticker from Doodlebug (the Doodlebug goodies used on this project are no longer available in our shop, but I included links to similar papers and stickers that we have available) and then embellished the pocket and spoon using stamps and dies from Paper Sweeties!

For today's second project, I created another sweet gift basket filled with a peppermint hot cocoa K-cup - yummy!

These little baskets are so much fun to make ... and give!

I just love this winter theme set created with our adorable Mr. Snowman!!!

I'm sharing these sweet gingers with my friend Lori Hairston for her 2018 Choux Choux - Home for the Holidays challenge and also for the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Paper Sweeties | Fall & Winter 2018 Coffee Hop!

Welcome crafty friends and fellow coffee lovers!   I'm super excited to share a sweet holiday project I recently created in honor of this years Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop event!

I created this adorable treat basket using a mixture of products available at Paper Sweeties ...

... and filled my treat basket with a Peppermint flavored Hot Cocoa K-cup!

I created a coordinating card to go along with my treat!

I used our newest sentiment stamp set called Merry - LOVE!!!

What a 'sweet' set!  You can filled the treat basket with K-cups, tea bags, candy, gift cards, money, tea cookies, jewelry, etc.  These would make adorable teacher appreciation gifts or party favors!  How about making up a bunch of them for the holidays and then giving them to friends and family who visit you for the holidays!  They are so much fun to make ... and even more fun to give!

We've put together a KIT to make this fun gift set ... everything included to make the treat box and card except for the stamp set - sold separately (links to products in gallery below).

If you already own our sweet Basket Sweet Cuts die, we have a downloadable template (link in gallery below) to create the middle portion of the treat box so you can fill your sweet treat with goodies!

Click here ---> to see our all in one Treat Box Sweet Cuts die that will make a complete box that you can fill with treats (no middle portion needed)!

Recreate using these items from Paper Sweeties:

Paper Sweeties is a proud Super Sponsor and flash prize sponsor of the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers hop!  We have also put together an interactive sale for you to use during the hop ... receive 10%, 20% or 30% off your entire full-price purchase using the coupon codes below:

For the winners ...

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you are inspired by my projects and will be making some of these for your family and friends this holiday season ... and beyond!

And, one last little bit of news before I go ... coming later this week: Merry Christmas Y'all stamp and coordinating Merry Christmas Y'all Sweet Cuts die set!  EEK - I can hardly stand the cuteness!   Follow us (links on right sidebar) and stay tuned for an update of when these cutie pies will be available for purchase!

Merry Christmas Y'all Sweet Cuts

Paper Sweeties + 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hello crafty friends - thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I'm excited to share a little something I recently created for the Summer 2017 Edition of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I took inspiration from not only the coffee theme, but from the colors in the graphic too!!

I really enjoyed sitting down at my desk to create this 'just because' card with a fun coffee theme!  Madison is the newest Sweetie to join our little stamp family and I had fun dressing her in this cute outfit from the Live Love Grow stamp set - I imagined her working at this oh-so-sweet coffee shop, so she had to sport an apron, a coffee shop logo T and ... of course ... a cup of ICED COFFEE!  I stamped Maddy onto vanilla cardstock and then die cut her using the Madison Sweet Cuts die.  The outfit was stamped on white cardstock and several scrap pieces of patterned paper and then paper pieced together!

I adore the sentiment from the Tackle life one cup at a time stamp set ... 'coffee and friends' ... and Maddy's friend, as you can see, is this sweet little pup from the Sweeties Pets stamp set!  The coffee stand was created by stamping the Sweeties Stand onto white cardstock, coloring in the background and then stamping the awning portion again onto patterned paper and paper piecing it onto the stand base.  (Click on photo for larger view).

I added some fun coffee images and a sentiment for inside the hanging sign using the Planner Series: Coffee stamp set and finished this little cutie pie off by adding some die cut clouds created using the Let's go to the beach Sweet Cuts set!  I created this scene on a card base, but when I was finished, I thought to myself that this would be really cute on a scrapbook page with a pic of me and my bestie - *note to self!

I am delighted to once again be a sponsor for this fun hop -- Paper Sweeties has donated a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner ...

... and additionally, we are offering a second FLASH prize of (1) stamp set and (1) die set of winner's choice to another lucky ducky ...

... and, last but certainly not least, we are offering a 'Choose your discount SALE' during the hop - enter appropriate coupon code at checkout to redeem your DISCOUNT!

Thanks again for popping in to see what I created for this season's coffee event - xoxo

Sharing with these challenges:  Fussy & Fancy #190 - punches/dies; Fusion - sketch (square + 3 images/dog, dish, girl); Simon Says - use patterned paper; Curtain Call - June 15/Sorbet: colors; Addicted to Stamps and More #247 - make your mark; Tuesday Throwdown #348 - party time; Inspired by all the Little Things #61 - square/box shape + blue; Cut it Up #124 - picnic (mine is an outing to the coffee shop!); Dies 'R Us #75 - celebrations; 613 Avenue Create #198 - ATG

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???
