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!

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 have created one of these sweet gifts each of the last 3 years!

I love my 2018 hot cocoa design ... especially the patterned papers from Doodlebug!

And how adorable is our little Mr. Snowman ... with his rosey cheeks!

A coordinating card to complete the set!  FUN to make, give and receive!!

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!

Recreate using these products from our shop:

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!!!

25 Days of Christmas with Paper Sweeties: 2018!

We're sharing holiday inspiration projects for 25 days here at Paper Sweeties from December 1st through the 25th!  We began yesterday by sharing some fun ideas to help you plan your life in style with Paper Sweeties.  Click here to check out what our talented design teamies created to help spark your creativity!

It's my turn today to share a little something sweet ...

... so, I created a few gifts that will be as much fun to make as they are to give!

First up is another treat basket that I filled with a gingerbread flavored K-cup of coffee!  I decorated the outside of the basket with our sweet little gingerbread girlie!

Then I created a gingerbread couple made out of felt.  I button stitched around the outside of the die cuts and then embellished them both with little bits and bobs of sweet treasures!

These little felt gingers would look cute on top of packages, adorning a tree, tied to gifts or tucked inside a holiday card!  They are super easy peesy to make and so FUN to give!  Recreate using these products from the Paper Sweeties shop:

I created this set using the Basket Sweet Cuts die as well (link for set in gallery above):

Paper Sweeties November Release Rewind!

I hope you found some inspiration in the projects the teamies and I have shared with you over the past four days for the November *new* product release here at Paper Sweeties!  Before we wrap up this month's release and move forward looking to December, we have just a couple more cards and gift ideas to share to help spark your holiday creativity!
I created little 3" x 5" 2014 calendars to give this Christmas as stocking stuffers and hostess gifts!  I used various different stamp and dies from the Paper Sweeties line up to add a different image and sentiment to each of the months.  I've shared 9 months of inspiration for this month's release and will be sharing the final 3 months at the beginning of December for our next release ... yes Paper Sweeties fans, we will be releasing all of the new in December products on 12/1 so you don't have to wait until the middle of the month for our regularly scheduled release!  This way, you'll get an extra three weeks of paper crafting in before the big day arrives!  Mark your calendars, bookmark our site, follow us on Bloglovin' (link on sidebar -->) so you won't miss a minute of the fun!
