*NEW* December stamps & dies LIVE in the Paper Sweeties shop today!

I hosted a holiday tea party at my house on Sunday for my bunco girlfriends and made one of these cards for each of them!  I placed one at each of their place settings on the table so they found them as they sat down at the table for tea!  I love the untraditional holiday color palette ... so pretty with those pops of pink and blue!

Ribbon Carousel love …

1 no watermark carousel pic 640Hello crafty friends!  I have a special little post today ... I'm here to share a little happy mail I recently received from Corinna, owner of the Ribbon Carousel!


Corinna invited me to guest design for the Ribbon Carousel during the month of October, so I've been sharing some of the autumn and Halloween projects I've been creating all month long!

DSCN1553As a thank you, Corinna graciously sent me one of these awesome Ribbon Carousels!  How did she 'know' I was a ribbon-aholic???  I filled it up lickity-split with some of my very favorite spooled treasures!


It holds 15 delicious colors of tea-stained seam binding from Paper Sweeties (I had been looking for a way to house all the seam binding that I keep close for daily use on all my crafty projects!) along with yummy washi tapes ...


... and some of my favorite autumn colored tulle - Kraft, chocolate and cherry!

DSCN1555It immediately found a place of honor on the top shelf in my stamp room ... and my new Ribbon Carousel is very happy living with its new friends to the left and right -- more and more spools of eye candy ribbon!  Thanks, Corinna -- LOVE it to pieces 🙂

I created my card this week using the Flower Jar image from Bugaboo Stamps.  I stamped the sentiment on the jar label using the Beautiful stamp set from Paper Sweeties and then added some natural twine, a button, a pretty paper doilie, a snipett of die cut patterned paper, a strip of yellow gingham washi tape, a pennant and some fabric flowers from Tim Holtz.
