Paper Sweeties | February 2019 New Release Party!

Hello crafty friends -- welcome to day #2 of the February 2019 *NEW* product release here at Paper Sweeties - our BIG RELEASE PARTY DAY!  I hope you were inspired by the projects the Design Teamies and I shared yesterday!  If you missed the festivities, click --> HERE <-- to check out all the creativity!

Before we get to peekin' today, let's meet the newest kids on the block:

Planner Series: All Occasions

Planner Series: All Occasions Sweet Cuts

**********

For today's release party project, I am sharing a bingo game set I created using all of the shapes and coordinating dies from the *NEW* sets  --  (Click on the photos for larger views!)

I have been SO EXCITED to share this sweet project with you!!!  I printed 12 of the bingo cards and then proceeded to stamp them all in assembly line fashion using the fun shapes.  Next, I did cut the coordinating shapes in the same colors as my stamped images - making sure I had one die cut for each image in each block on each bingo card (NOTE: I stamped all the bingo cards differently so no two would be alike).

We will be using these fun bingo cards at the monthly Day Crops and Retreats hosted at our Bed & Breakfast (link below)!  For those of you who live too far away to join us, or if you want to create a set of your own, I've also added a downloadable version of the bingo cards on website (link below)!

Paper Sweeties | Plan Your Life Series: February 2019

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 February calendar and planner pages (CLICK on photos for larger views):

I love, love, LOVE my 2019 MAMBI Create 365 Happy Life planner!  The pages are removable which makes it very easy to stamp and embellish -- 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 open on my work space so I can peek at it throughout the day ... and it makes me smile each and every time I walk by it!  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 oh-so-FUN planner stamps available at Paper Sweeties!

  I stamped 'blog post' dates along with my special events, papercraft shows, B&B bookings, scrapbook crops, appointments, birthdays, etc. for this month!

I added adorable mixy-matchy Doodlebug patterned papers and stickers throughout the month to decorate and add some fun color! *NOTE, Doodlebug Easter and Spring collections COMING SOON to the Paper Sweeties shop!!!

The February Day Crop at our Bed and Breakfast, The Carriage House B&B, will be held on the 23rd this month!  If you live within driving distance and want to attend, contact me for details! 

I'm addicted and I know you will be too when you start to plan your life in style with Paper Sweeties' amazing planner stamps!  Recreate these planner pages using these goodies from the Paper Sweeties shop:

Paper Sweeties | June 2018 New Release Sneak Peeks!

Hello crafty friends -- welcome to day #1 of the June 2018 *NEW* product release here at Paper Sweeties!  I hope you were inspired on the 1st by the projects the Planner Design Teamies and I shared using our fun planner stamps!  If you missed the festivities, click --> HERE <-- to check out all the creativity!

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

I'm SO excited to tell you that we are adding coordinating sets to compliment our versatile Treat Box Sweet Cuts set!  The first in the series is called Treat Box Add-on: Home & Garden, and I am completely smitten with this amazing set!  The sentiment is from the Thank You stamp and die set and fits perfectly on the front of the treat box!

This new set is full of fun little images to create sweet houses, garden sheds, flower shops, cottages, etc.  You can have so much fun filling the treat boxes with a variety of small treasures ... candy, jewelry, a gift card, tea bags or money!  I filled mine with a mini bar of handmade lavender soap that we will be giving to guests that stay with us at our Bed & Breakfast, so I designed this treat box to look like our home - complete with a little snipett of lace on the front door to look like the lace curtains we have!  And, yes, I made the soaps and labels myself too!!  This set was SO MUCH FUN to make!!!

Paper Sweeties | June 2017 Release Sneak Peeks!

Hello crafty friends -- welcome to day #1 of the June 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 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* Oval Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts set, I die cut the center shapes and adhered them to the patterned paper & card base.  I die cut the two patterned paper squares for the pinwheel using the inside of the middle size of the Square Scallop Frames Sweet Cuts set, adhered the papers  WRONG SIDES together, snipped 1 1/2" slits from each corner toward the middle and then glued each point to the center using hot glue and securing the center with a button (if you would like to view a tutorial on how to make a paper pinwheel, I found one HERE).  I added a Robin Egg Paper Straw and then tied on the sentiment banner which I die cut using the Mason Jar Sweet Cuts set and our *NEW* Aloha stamp set!  Easy peesy and so bright, cheery and FUN, don't you think?

*NOTE* all patterned papers are from Photoplay Paper!

Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series | February 2016!

Today's the day -- a few of the Design Teamies and I are sharing our February planners and calendars with you today ... using some previously released Planner sets along with our *NEW* Celebrate stamp set (available on the 15th)!   These FUN sets will help you plan your life in style with Paper Sweeties this year!

2016-Package

If you don't have a planner or calendar for 2016 yet, we have an AWESOME calendar/planner package available for instant download --> HERE!

February

You can purchase the calendar pages one month at a time or save $4 by purchasing the entire 24 page package all at once!  Each month has an 8.5" x 11" calendar page as well as a second 8.5" x 11" page where you can record notes, a to-do list and keep track of upcoming birthdays!

February-notes

And, the best news is that the planner pages are pre-marked with all the Paper Sweeties special dates throughout the year ... challenge dates, blog post dates, new release dates, stamp show and class dates!  What a great way to keep track of everything in your life along with everything Paper Sweeties too!  Each month has a bright and cheery palette with whimsical images and plenty of space to record the important things in your life!  I print each month's pages off and hang these on our refrigerator to keep my family on track with appointments, events and monthly commitments each month!

Next, let's meet the newest set added to our Planner Series:

PS-172

Planner Series: Celebrate

Adorable -- I am in LOVE with the mini celebration images!  You can use these stamps not only on planners and calendars, but on tags, cards --anything paper crafty!  And, without further ado, let's get to peeking at my February calendar and planner pages (CLICK on photos for larger views) ...

papersweeties-debbie-2-12-16(1)

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!

papersweeties-debbie-2-12-16(2)

I started decorating at the very top of the page by adding a die cut heart, Bubblegum Sequins, some patterned paper and glitter stickers!

papersweeties-debbie-2-12-16(3)

I marked holidays with glitter tape I cut into banner shapes.   I stamped 'challenge' 'blog' and 'new product release' dates along with the two stamp shows I am attending in GA and SC this month!

papersweeties-debbie-2-12-16(4)

I added mixy-matchy Washi tape strips to the special event days for Paper Sweeties - challenge, blog posts, release and classes!

papersweeties-debbie-2-12-16(5)

And, how cute is Miss Emma dressed in her sweet gingham pattern paper nightgown, complete with bunny slippers and heart banner!  She was so much fun to stamp, color and paper piece -- LOVE!!!

papersweeties-debbie-2-12-16(6)

The weekly pages were decorated similar to the month-at-a-glance pages, although I added more detailed information ... times of appointments, classes, etc.

papersweeties-debbie-2-12-16(7)

I love how you can coordinate the sentiments with the sweet little icons to highlight special events!   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!

Visions of Sugarplums – Grand Finale!

VOSP 2013 ad 2 aWell, all good things must come to an end, and sadly, today is the final day of project shares for the Visions of Sugarplums Designer's Hop!

papersweeties-debbie-12-6-13(2)This card was super easy to create!  I inked the red cardstock base with some cream paint and then machine zig-zag stitched some pretty green holiday patterned paper to it.  I added a strip of Washi tape at the bottom and a pretty red glittered chipboard heart.

papersweeties-debbie-12-6-13(3)The pretty wreath, pinecones, berries and sentiment were stamped using the Season of Love set directly onto a white paper doilie ... perfect!

papersweeties-debbie-12-6-13(1)And last, I added some gingham ribbon, twine and Rusty Jingle Bells to give this card a rustic, homespun feeling!

Here is the hop line up for today ... be sure to leave a little love for each designer!

Paper Sweeties December Release Rewind – Joyex Noel

Looking for my Visions of Sugarplums post –> click HERE!

My oh my, how time flies when you're having fun!  Today is the 4th and final day of project shares from the Sweeties Teamies for the December *new* product release ... I hope you have enjoyed each day of the blog hops and found some inspiration along the way too!  Before we wrap things up for December and begin creating for the upcoming January release, we have a few more things to share with you today using some of the new goodies in combination with old products too!

papersweeties-debbie-12-5-13(1)I created this fun card full of yummy polka dots and whimsical embellishments using the Season of Love and Little Wishes stamp sets along with a Red & White Chenille Candy Cane!papersweeties-debbie-12-5-13(2)The addition of some baker's twine, a glittered jingle bell, buttons, a paper doilie, a chipboard glittered star and a pretty fabric bloom complete my design!

papersweeties-debbie-#13(3)And, I am re-sharing a project I made for last month's Paper Sweeties November Inspiration challenge so I can show you all the sweet little outfit that is included in the Have a Holly Jolly stamp set!papersweeties-debbie-#13(7)The outfit consists of a sweet top with ruffles at the cuffs and waist.  I stamped my top directly onto patterned paper!  This set also has 10 interchangeable theme icons that you can stamp directly onto the top so you can create 10 different looks ... or don't stamp an incon at all -- leave the top blank or stamp onto patterned paper.  I colored the ruffles with a pink glitter marker and then adhered the sweet stamped heart onto the top.papersweeties-debbie-#13(1)This set also comes with a pair of pants with ruffles at the bottom to coordinate with the top and a pair of ballet shoes!  Pretty polka dots adorn the pants and make them so fun!  You can use this set to dress up the Sweeties girls for the holidays, Valentine's Day, birthdays, celebrations ... just about anything ... using the interchangeable icons!

papersweeties-debbie-#13(5)Here I'm showing a couple of the other outfits I inked and stamped to create a little wardrobe for Miss Emma ... most everything was stamped directly onto patterned papers to make things quick and easy to cut and assemble!  I cut the doll out using the coordinating Emma Sweet Cuts die!

papersweeties-debbie-#13(6)Here you see a few more outfits I created using the Some Bunny Loves You, Live Love Grow and The Splendor of Autumn stamp sets!papersweeties-debbie-#13(4)I added some double sided sticky tape onto the back of each outfit after I laminated them and then adhered them onto glassine 'garmet' bags!papersweeties-debbie-#13(8)Emma was laminated also so the outfits can easily be changed out ... so much fun to play dress up!  The entire ensemble was packaged up using a decorated CD envelope from The Kraft Journal and another glassine bag was added to the front to hold Miss Emma!  I adhered it to the pink & white stripe gingham bow so it could easily be slipped off the CD case to revel and outfits contained inside the case.  What a fun gift to make, give and receive!  Any little (or big!) girl will enjoy receiving a handmade from the heart keepsake like this!

A set of a paper doll with outfits will make you mom of the year when you create these for your daughter's next birthday party as favors ... or what a fun activity to do with the attendees at your daughter's next party -- little girls love playing dress up and pretend!  It's also a great 'take along in the car' gift set that will provide hours of fun for your little girl!  How about stamping a set uncolored and then give as a gift with a pack of markers or crayons and let the little recipient color and decorate the outfits herself!  FUN!

Please be sure to visit the rest of the teamies’ blogs to be inspired by their project shares today:
