And now for my RELEASE DAY inspiration projects (CLICK on photos for larger views) ...

I had so much fun dressing little Jake in his new soccer outfit!  Super easy peesy to stamp and dress him using the coordinating Jake Sweet Cuts die!  I used the Score and Circle Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts sets along with Blue Raspberry Sequins!  This is a great set to create Coach thank you cards, teacher appreciation, masculine cards, party invitations, favors and MORE!

For my second card, I began with Jake which I die cut using the Jake Sweet Cuts die and then dressed him in his *NEW* cowboy outfit using the Howdy Y'all stamp set - SO STINKIN' CUTE!

The background was created using the *NEW* Circle Scallop Frames die set and I die cut the gold glitter star using the Be Happy Sweet Cuts set!  Another perfect set for all things masculine!!

Paper Sweeties | May 2017 Release Sneak Peeks!

Hello crafty friends -- welcome to day #1 of the May 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 projects, first I'm sharing a card 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* Circle Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts set, I die cut the center shapes and adhered them to the striped patterned paper.  I die cut the adorable little house using the Somewhere over the rainbow Sweet Cuts set and adhered it to the white circle.   Next I die cut the sweet, tiny heart from glitter paper using the Be Happy Sweet Cuts set and adhered to the front of the house.  I created a pretty bow using Cotton Candy Seam Binding and adhered it and a band onto the base of the card.  Last I stamped the tiny tag using the Little Wishes stamp set, die cut using the Little Wishes Sweet Cuts set and then stamped the sentiment inside the tag using the *NEW* Handmade for you stamp set!  I adhered the tag onto the nosegay adding a button and trinket pin.  The 'smoke' coming out of the chimney was created using Bubblegum Sequins!

*NOTE* all patterned papers are from Photoplay Paper!

Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series | May 2017!

Welcome all of our fabulous planner, calendar and organizer friends -- today's the day we are sharing inspiration and ideas using some FUN Planner sets from Paper Sweeties!   These amazing sets will help you plan your life in style with Paper Sweeties this year!

 You can use our versatile planner stamps not only on planners and calendars, but on tags, cards, invitations, layouts, place cards, save the dates -- anything paper crafty!  So, without further ado, let's get to peeking at my March calendar and planner pages (CLICK on photos for larger views):

I love, love, LOVE my 2017 MAMBI Create 365 Happy Life 2017 planner!

Way more user friendly than the brand I had last year ... the pages are removable which makes it very easy to stamp -- especially as the year progresses and the calendar gets filled up with lots of bumpy goodies!

This ... was ... SO ... MUCH ... FUN ... to ... do!  Love the entire month-at-a-glance pages - so colorful and fun to look at again ... and again ... and again!  I keep my planner close by so I can peek at it throughout the day ... and it makes me smile each and every time I flip it open!  I adore the mixy-matchy patterned papers!

I stamped all the special days throughout the month using a variety of the amazing planner stamps available at Paper Sweeties!

I marked holidays and special days with glitter tape I cut into banner shapes.   I stamped 'challenge' 'blog' and 'new product release' dates along with my shows this month!

I added adorable mixy-matchy Washi tape throughout the month to decorate and add some fun color!

And, how cute is sweet little Abigail dressed in her party dress and hat!?!?!

I'm addicted and I know you will be too when you start to plan your life in style with Paper Sweeties Planner Series goodies!

Products used from the Paper Sweeties boutique listed below:

And, I have a little bonus project ... a 3 1/2" x 5" mini calendar that I display on a wooden base and then change out the featured card each month!

Products used from the Paper Sweeties shop:  (May calendar) Pretty Posies, Pretty Posies Sweet Cuts, Garden Time, Garden Time Sweet Cuts, Raspberry Sequins, Cookie Dough Sequins; (card designed by Lori Turner) With Love Sweet Cuts, You warm my heart, You warm my heart Sweet Cuts; Cupcake Sprinkles Sequins.

Hop on over to be inspired by the rest of the Planner Teamies' projects today:

Sweet New Baby | Girl |

Hi crafty peeps!  I'm popping in today to share a very special little something I recently created for a very special lady's upcoming special delivery from the stork!  Lesley Croghan was a wonderful member of the Paper Sweeties Creative Design Team for a while, and we were so blessed to have her sharing her talents with us all using goodies from our shop!

I couldn't be any happier for Lesley and her hubby ... I am sure they can hardly wait for their little bundle of joy to make her appearance!

I created this 'sweet' card using the negative dies cut from the card I created and posted yesterday for the Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop!  The scalloped frame is coming soon to Paper Sweeties on April 15th ... the image and sentiment were stamped using the Bundle of Joy stamp set and then die cut using the Bundle of Joy Sweet Cuts set!  The small heart was die cut using the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts set!

I'm sharing my card with the current March 'anything goes' Challenge at Paper Sweeties - inspired by the colors!

So happy for you, Lesley!  I cannot wait to see pictures of Little Miss Croghan once she makes her debut!  Thank you to Lori and Nancy from the Paper Sweeties Design Team for organizing this fun hop!  Hugs - xoxox

Paper Sweeties | Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

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???

To celebrate this spring's hop, we have a brand new color of sequins released in the boutique TODAYLatte Coffee!  It is a delicious mix of iridescent, flower shaped and circle sequins in 4 different 'latte' shades ... this is a LIMITED EDITION Sequin Mix and only available while supplies last, so grab your cuppa today!
