For today's rewind project, I'm sharing a fun gift idea I created using some of the brand new goodies released yesterday in our shop in combination with some previously released sets to show you how seamlessly our products work together to help you create one of a kind handmade treasures!  (Click on the photos for larger views!)

I used these products from the Paper Sweeties boutique to create this bright and cheery card:

Patterned paper from Photoplay Paper!

A gift box like this can be used all year round -- fill with candy, cookies, a gift card, money, craft supplies ...

... or like I did with gourmet doggie treats!!!

Paper Sweeties | October 2017 Release Sneak Peeks!

Hello crafty friends -- welcome to day #1 of the October 2017 *NEW* product release here at Paper Sweeties!  I hope you were inspired  yesterday by the projects the Planner Design Teamies and I shared using our fun planner stamps!  If you missed yesterday's festivities, click --> HERE <-- to check out all the creativity!

For today's sneak peek project, I am sharing a cute gift I created using some of the new goodies which will be live in the boutique TOMORROW  --  (Click on the photos for larger views!)

Using the *NEW* For You stamp set and coordinating For You Sweet Cuts die, I die cut the stitched tag (which is PERFECT to make all kinds of goodies for the upcoming holiday season) and using Coal ColorBox Ink, stamped the sentiment onto the top of the tag.  Next I stamped the adorable little puppy from the Sweeties Pets stamp set and colored him using Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Gamsol.  I added a bit of puppy paw washi tape and come yummy Latte Coffee Sequins for a pop of sparkle!  The tag was tied onto the kraft bag using some delicious Strawberry Seam Binding, and I decorated the bag with more puppy theme washi and a border from the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts set!

I created a quick little gift card holder to slip inside the gift bag using a kraft gift card sleeve that I wrapped with some patterned paper around the middle.  I hand cut a bone from white cardstock and stamped the sentiment using the For You stamp set and Coal ColorBox Ink.  My next door neighbor recently pet sat with our little Bailey a couple times when Mommy was away, so I wanted to give her a little thank you to show our appreciation for taking such good care of our baby when I was gone!  This little gift idea is perfect all year long to give to someone special on your gift-giving list, but how cute would this be to give to all the pet lovers on your list this holiday season -- change the colors to add a festive holiday theme!!

*NOTE* all patterned papers are from Photoplay Paper!

Paper Sweeties challenge | October 2017!

Hello crafty friends!  It's that time of the month again ... time for a NEW challenge at Paper Sweeties!    Before we share the new inspiration board, let's congratulate last month's challenge winner ... the votes are in and I'm thrilled to announce our latest winner of the September challenge:  Cherry!

We just love both of these oh-so-sweet cards Cherry created!  Abigail is dressed so adorable in her outfit from the Life is a Picnic stamp set and sentiment from the Sweetie Pie stamp set and looks to be having fun out walking on this fine fall day!   Contact us, Cherry, to claim your $25 gift certificate prize ... and here's a {sweet} badge to display on your blog!

PS-Winner BadgePaper Sweeties hosts monthly challenges here on the blog and in our Facebook Group! Each 1st of the month we will have a brand new inspiration board to help spark your creativity!  It's as easy as 1-2-3 to create, share and win:

1. CREATE a NEW project based on the current inspiration board using ANY of your favorite crafty supplies ... you don't have to use products from Paper Sweeties, but we would LOVE if you did!   Use this month's board as a starting point for your project -- be inspired by one or more of the colors, shapes, theme ... ANYTHING GOES!

2. POST a direct link to your project in the link gallery below (if using your blog, please link to your blog post not your entire blog so we can find your creation) or UPLOAD a photo of your project to our FACEBOOK GROUP CHALLENGE ALBUM .  No blog or not on Facebook, no problem -- you can use any of our online galleries to add your project link:  Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest or Splitcoast Stampers - (keyword papersweeties).  Contact us if you have questions or need assistance!

3. LINK back to this blog post so your followers can find us too!  (Back linked posts will not be considered for the monthly prize).

Our challenge will run for the entire month. You can play along as many times as you wish and combine with as many other challenges as you want!  The challenges will end at 12 pm EST on the last day of each month. The winner will be revealed on the 1st of each month!

This month's inspiration board:

HOW will YOU be inspired this month -- colors, theme, shapes, patterns?  I was inspired by the theme, colors and patterns in this month's yummy photo!  (CLICK on the photos for close up views):

I am sneaking a sentiment from one of our *new* sets that will be releasing in the Paper Sweeties boutique on the 15th of this month ... you're going to LOVE the (hint) stitched tag and awesome sentiments from the For You stamp and Sweet Cuts die sets!  I created a sweet fall theme basket and filled it with caramel candies for my first project.  The tag was created using the Little Wishes stamp and coordinating Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts set!

I used our Basket and Basket Sweet Cuts to make this adorable treat holder!  The box inside is cardstock that I cut 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" and then scored at 1 1/2" on all four sides and folded into a box shape.

I created a coordinating 3" x 3" card using the Thank You stamp and die SET along with the Square Scallop Framed Sweet Cuts die set, Creamsicle Sequins, Cookie Dough Sequins and Pink Grapefruit Sequins.

What an easy little card to mass produce if you need a bunch of them ... and who wouldn't want to receive a yummy little treat basket like this filled with candy, cookies, a gift card, money, etc.!  Makes GREAT TEACH APPRECIATION GIFTS for the upcoming holidays too!
