Some EXCITING news to share!

Hello friends!  Well, I bet most of you have heard the buzz by now, but if you haven't, I finally get to spill the beans!  My sweet friend, Lesley Croghan, is starting a new challenge beginning in January 2014 and guess what ...

Designer Badge... I have been invited to create for the inaugural the card Concept design team in the 'Shabby Chic' category ... LOVE!!!  For those of you unfamiliar with the guidelines surrounding the Shabby Chic esthetic, here you go:

Shabby Chic and Vintage

Definition: 
  • the use of used, worn or inexpensive components to make stylish goods
  • distressed or sponged edges
  • old feel-antiqued
  • lots of embellishments
  • ribbons or lace
  • lots of layers

Those that know me well, already know that I adore anything shabby, old, worn and antique!  YUM!  I enjoy going to antique shows and finding old treasures to add to my cards and paper crafted projects!  I love piling my creations high with lots of bits and bobs of sweet little treasures -- creating keepsakes suitable for framing in some instances!

papersweeties-debbie-11-11-13(1)Let's go through the shabby checklist, shall we?  Used, worn, inexpensive components - check!  Distressed or sponges layers - I inked mine with vanilla paint - check!  Old/antique feeling with lots of embellishments - check!  Ribbons or lace - check!   Lots of layers - check!

Winner BadgeThis shabby little sweetie was chosen as the winning favorite at Festive Friday for last week's aqua, red & cream challenge!  Materials list: Homespun Holidays, Ho Ho Ho, Homespun Holidays Sweet Cuts, Rusty Jingle Bells, Red & White Chenille Candy Cane, October Afternoon - Make It Merry patterned paper, blue chenille trim - Webster's Pages.

A huge thank you to Miss Lesley for inviting me to join the line-up of talented designers who will be creating for The Card Concept challenges!  We are all in for a treat to be inspired by these lovely ladies!  Stay tuned for this new and exciting challenge to launch after the holidays in January ... and until then, happy stamping my friends!

Hello sweeties and welcome to the blog today!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving last week here in the US!  We enjoyed lots of beautiful family time with our sons home from college for five days ... so sad to see them leave on Sunday to head back for the last push over the next two weeks for final exams.

Paper Sweeties Inspiration #14:

papersweeties-inspiration#14I found my inspiration in the theme of this month's board ... the sweet little girl wearing a pink cape and watching the snow fall outside her window ... so adorable!

papersweeties-debbie#14(2)So, I pulled out some of my favorite dies and cut a sparkly tree and window to re-create this precious winter scene!  I added a snipett of lace trim for the window valance and some delicious marshmallow sequins from my sweet friend, Paulina's, Pretty Pink Posh Etsy Shop!

papersweeties-debbie#14(3)I die cut a couple of snow drifts using the *brand new* Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts die set -- RELEASED TODAY in the shop -- and adhered them to the base of my card using dimensionals in between to add depth.

papersweeties-debbie#14(1)I stamped sweet little Emma onto cream cardstock and then die cut her using the Emma Sweet Cuts die.  Next, I stamped the cape from the Warm Winter Wishes set onto pink patterned paper, cut it out and dressed Emma in it!  Last, I stamped the sentiment onto a die cut banner using the Let It Snow stamp set and adhered it to the top of my card!

Please be sure to visit the other Sweeties Teamies' blogs to be INSPIRED by their creative and beautiful projects ... and then we hope you'll have time this month to play along with the Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge #14 for a chance to win some goodies and guest design with us next month!

papersweeties-debbie-11-28-13(2)Happy Thanksgiving to all my family & friends who live in the US!  To everyone else outside the US -- I'm thankful for the blessings of you too!  I so enjoy this amazing paper crafting community we all share and am truly thankful to have met and made connections with so many wonderful people whose path I would never have crossed had it not been for blog land!

papersweeties-debbie-11-28-13(3)I am most thankful today to be surrounded by my family today -- my supportive and loving husband and our two amazing sons!  They are home from college vising us for a couple days over the Thanksgiving holiday, so I am treasuring each and ever second with them ... Sunday will be here all too soon and they will be heading back to school for the final push to end the term before winter break.

papersweeties-debbie-11-28-13(1)So, in honor of Thanksgiving, I whipped up this sweet little card the other day to share with Linda and the girls over at Catered Crop for this week's Animal House Recipe Swap!  The gift bags I created for last week's Thankful challenge earned a shout out (below), so I was invited to tag along for this week's designer's quick fire spotlight!  I used the Jake and Gobble Gobble stamp sets along with the Jake Sweet Cuts die to create this fun and festive card!
