Welcome crafty friends! I'm excited to be popping in today to share a tag I created especially for the 2017 edition of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Blog Hop hosted by Tracey McNeely!
I can hardly believe that winter is nipping at our heels ... it seems like it was just the beginning of summer! This whimsical and colorful tag was so much fun to create -- I love the untraditional color palette!
This sweet little snowman always makes me smile ... and I love the die cut snow drift created using white glitter paper - so yummy!
Products I used from the Paper Sweeties boutique to create this tag are as follows:
And, I am *sneak peeking* a NEW set that will be released on the 15th ... the #holiday sentiment is from our NEW 'Meet me under the Mistletoe' stamp set!
This bright and cheery little gift bag and tag would be so much fun to give or receive this winter ... fill with hot cocoa, smores, candy, a gift certificate, tea bags, cookies, etc!
Paper Sweeties is a PROUD SPONSOR of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Blog Hop!

I am delighted to be participating in the 2013 Visions of Sugarplums Designer's Hop again this year! Thank you so much to my sweet friend, Lori, for inviting me! The holidays are my favorite time of the year, like most people, so I especially enjoy creating sweet little things made of paper and glue at this time of the year ... and love to give them to my family and friends!
I used the Make the Season Bright and Ho Ho Ho stamps sets, Make the Season Bright Sweet Cuts die and a Pink & White Chenille Candy cane to create this holiday card in an untraditional palette of hot pink, baby pink and apple green.
*NEW* December stamps & dies LIVE in the shop now!
And now, I'd like to share my projects created for this week's new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room - 'Terrific Tags'! Create something this week that includes a tag - yay!
I made these little favor treats for the annual holiday bunco party I hosted yesterday for my girlfriends! We enjoyed a holiday tea party and I had one of these waiting for each of the girls at each of their place settings!
I used a variety of stamp sets from Paper Sweeties to create the sentiment banners: Ho Ho Ho, Make the Season Bright, Noel and Season of Love - easy peesy!And then I die cut ornament shapes to use as tags on my favors and attached them to the favor wrapper! The recipients can slide off the wrapper to enjoy the flavored coffees inside and then slide the wrapper back onto the packaging to save as a pretty little holiday decoration -- cute added to a basket of holiday teas or coffees sitting on the kitchen counter or on the kitchen windowsill!
Please be sure to visit The Shabby Tea Room to be inspired by the rest of the Shabby Girls projects this week and then I hope you'll have time to play along for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate from Paper Sweeties!

... and Make Today Beautiful stamp set to create the sweet polka dotted leaves on the pretty pink bloom!A couple layers of cardstock, patterned paper, ribbons, lade and a glittered star complete today's card! I love how the pink pops off the page against the black background!

Welcome to The Shabby Tea Room #188 - 'FALL'! This week we are to be inspired by the photo and create a project with a fall theme, include pumpkins and a stamped sentiment! Easy peesy 🙂
I added a snipett of green lace trim attached with machine zig-zag stitching and some pretty Ambrosia Cantalope seam binding. I created a sweet little pumpkin using a piece of flair along with two air dry clay leaves. The 'glitter' tag was also stamps using the Give Thanks stamp set!

Hello crafty peeps! The new challenge at The Kraft Journal #141 is all about 'Buttons, Bows or Bangles' ... oh my! I created a set of beverage tags that can be used over and over each time you host a party! The tags will help your party attendees know what kinds of beverages are in which serving containers. I began with bases of large Grungy Prim Tags onto which I layered pieces of Black & Kraft Cardstock. Next I added Oval Kraft Labels to the middle of the tags. I tied a length of pretty Black Twill Ribbon around the centers of the tags and then layered sentiment banners printed on Buff Ivory Cardstock over the ribbon - popped up with dimensionals.
For the Sweet Tea tag, I added Bottle Caps to spell out 'tea'.
For the Margarita tag, I added a piece of Flair and some pretty Bright Green Hemp Cording.

Hello crafty peeps! I'm popping in today to share my project for The Shabby Tea Room #162 - 'Pretty Shabby' inspired by this photo:
I punched a bird from sheet music paper from an old holiday song book and added her to a nest of recycled Spanish moss that I collected while walking a golf course with my hubby and sons, and then filled it with three little 'eggs'. I adhered a sheet music piece of flair and created a shabby roof by distressing and inking the edges of the card stock.
I stamped this sweet tag using the Paper Sweeties Spring Is Here and Beautiful stamp sets!
