Paper Sweeties 4th Birthday Celebration!


Thanks for joining our party today!  We've been celebrating our 4th anniversary all month long in August and today we have a special treat ... a DESIGNERS' BLOG HOP featuring amazing projects created by current and past Design Team Contributors and special Guest Designers!  Without further ado, let's get this party started ...


I created a bright and cheery card with a party theme using our soon-to-be released Window and Window Elements Sweet Cuts sets!  I did cut the banner using the Sweeties Wagon Sweet Cuts die set and then added glitter stickers to spell out p-a-r-t-y!


I created a fun little window scene using the *new* window dies along with the window treatment from Sweeties Stand, the table from I'm Having a Tea Party and the cake & present from Planner Series: Celebrate!


A little sparkle and bling was added using some Watermelon and Marshmallow Sequins!

Now, continue the hop to help spark your creativity:
