Paper Sweeties | August 2017 Release Party!

Hello crafty friends -- welcome to the August 2017 *NEW* product RELEASE PARTY here at Paper Sweeties!  I hope you were inspired  yesterday by the sneak peek projects the Design Teamies and I shared!  If you missed yesterday's festivities, click --> HERE <-- to check out all the creativity!  Before we get to my projects for today, let's meet the newest kids on the block this month ...

A friend is

A friend is Sweet Cuts

Hugs and Kisses

Hugs and Kisses Sweet Cuts

*****

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

I used the Square Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts die to make the frame from patterned paper and white cardstock and then stamped the bicycle and sentiment from the *NEW* Hugs and Kisses stamp set onto the white cardstock.  Next I stamped the balloons and flower basket from this set onto scrap white cardstock, die cut them using the Hugs and Kisses Sweet Cuts set, colored them and adhered to the card base -- I added crystal effects on the balloons for some brightness!

For my second card, I created some fun patterned paper by stamping images from the *NEW* Hugs and Kisses stamp set onto white cardstock ...

... I cut a frame out of aqua cardstock and patterned paper using the Square Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts set and then stamped the balloons from the Hugs and Kisses stamp set, colored them, die cut using the Hugs and Kisses Sweet Cuts set, added crystal effects and then adhered them to the card base.  Last, I added some bright and cheery Cupcake Sprinkles Sequins for pops of sparkle and shine!

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!  (CLICK on the photos for close up pics!)

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 ADORABLE is little Jake dressed in his bathing suit outfit - complete with surf board!?!?!  For tips on how to stamp and dress the dolls from Paper Sweeties, please watch Jill Norwood's videos HERE and HERE!

Paper Sweeties + 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hello crafty friends - thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I'm excited to share a little something I recently created for the Summer 2017 Edition of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I took inspiration from not only the coffee theme, but from the colors in the graphic too!!

I really enjoyed sitting down at my desk to create this 'just because' card with a fun coffee theme!  Madison is the newest Sweetie to join our little stamp family and I had fun dressing her in this cute outfit from the Live Love Grow stamp set - I imagined her working at this oh-so-sweet coffee shop, so she had to sport an apron, a coffee shop logo T and ... of course ... a cup of ICED COFFEE!  I stamped Maddy onto vanilla cardstock and then die cut her using the Madison Sweet Cuts die.  The outfit was stamped on white cardstock and several scrap pieces of patterned paper and then paper pieced together!

I adore the sentiment from the Tackle life one cup at a time stamp set ... 'coffee and friends' ... and Maddy's friend, as you can see, is this sweet little pup from the Sweeties Pets stamp set!  The coffee stand was created by stamping the Sweeties Stand onto white cardstock, coloring in the background and then stamping the awning portion again onto patterned paper and paper piecing it onto the stand base.  (Click on photo for larger view).

I added some fun coffee images and a sentiment for inside the hanging sign using the Planner Series: Coffee stamp set and finished this little cutie pie off by adding some die cut clouds created using the Let's go to the beach Sweet Cuts set!  I created this scene on a card base, but when I was finished, I thought to myself that this would be really cute on a scrapbook page with a pic of me and my bestie - *note to self!

I am delighted to once again be a sponsor for this fun hop -- Paper Sweeties has donated a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner ...

... and additionally, we are offering a second FLASH prize of (1) stamp set and (1) die set of winner's choice to another lucky ducky ...

Paper Sweeties | June 2017 Release Party!

Hello crafty friends -- welcome to the June 2017 *NEW* product RELEASE PARTY here at Paper Sweeties!  I hope you were inspired  yesterday by the sneak peek projects the Design Teamies and I shared!  If you missed yesterday's festivities, click --> HERE <-- to check out all the creativity!  Before we get to my projects for today, let's meet the newest kids on the block this month ... and we literally have a NEW GIRL with long hair in our sweet line up - by customer request:

Madison

Madison Sweet Cuts

Aloha

Oval Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts

Planner Series: Shapes

*****

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

I had so much fun dressing adorable little Madison in her new summer outfit!!!  I stamped Maddy on vanilla cardstock and then die cut her using the coordinating Madison Sweet Cuts die!  I stamped the outfit from the Aloha set first onto white cardstock, then onto the pink gingham patterned paper, cut the pieces out and then paper pieced everything together!  I ... LOVE ... TO ... PAPER ... PIECE!!!

The sentiment was stamped from the Aloha stamp set onto a banner die cut using the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts set and then double mounted on another scrap piece of aqua cardstock.  Maddy was adhered to a cardstock background using the *NEW* Oval Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts set!  To finish things off, I added a couple drops of liquid pearls in the center of the flowers!

For my second card, I began with Madison which I die cut using the Madison Sweet Cuts die and then dressed her in her bathing suit outfit from the At the beach stamp set.  I die cut the cardstock background using the Oval Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts set and die cut the sun using the Island Time Sweet Cuts set, embossing it with a polka dot folder.  The sentiment was stamped using the Aloha set and I finished the card off by adding a couple Marshmallow Sequins and liquid pearls to the centers of the flowers.
