Paper Sweeties February 2017 Release Rewind!






Hi, there!

Welcome to Paper Sweeties Release Rewind!  I'd like to share with you another Easter card.  Today we share with you a project with new stamps/dies combined with previous released stamps/dies.  And, here is my card...



If you've seen my previous projects, you know that the sweet bunny is new.  The pretty bow at top and the sentiment is new, also.  They are from the set... Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter.  The previously released sets are Hippity Hoppity Easter Wishes(chick), Wagon Add-on: bloom & grow(carrot, eggs).  The fence was die cut using Sweet Cuts-Home Tweet Home and the grass was made using Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders.


Project Supplies:
                                     







Please check out the wonderful projects my teammates created...enjoy!

Paper Sweeties February 2017-Release Party!



Hi, there!

Welcome to Paper Sweeties Release Party!  This awesome fun stamp set Hoppy Easter is available for purchase today!  Also, please scroll down to see my second post today for Dies R Us.

There are lots of fun sentiments to this new stamp set, so I decided to make tags along with my other project, which can be seen below.  I just made a few simple Easter tags using the cute bunny!  I added googly eyes, bow ties, and the sentiments.  The heart border is from the set Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders.  The seam binding ribbons are (Cotton Candy) and (Robin Egg).

Project Supplies:



Next up is my 3-D Easter basket project filled with the hoppy bunnies!


I started with a paper mache basket and painted it yellow and then covered it with a white wash.  The eggs are paper mache painted in various colors.  Cotton Candy seam binding ribbon was tied under the bunnies.  Pom poms were glued to the edges around the basket.  A big poka dotted ribbon for the finishing touch.  This basket with the happy hoppy bunnies will be sitting on my dining room table this year!




Another view of the Easter eggs...



Please have fun hopping to see what my teammies created!  You won't be disappointed!  Have fun!

Dies R Us Challenge February 15, 2017- Think Spring!






Hi, friends!

It's time once again for the Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme is Think Spring!  Ahhh...spring is just around the corner.  It is one of my favorite seasons!  I just love seeing all the yellow daffodils and tulips around town.  I've never planted daffodils, but do have yellow tulips that I'm anxious to see bloom!

For my card, I started with a yellow card base and paired it with a white embossed panel.  I colored the flowers with copics.  I used several dies for my spring card.  All dies that I used are listed below...


     
 There are so many choices at Dies R Us store!  And, new items are added all the time!  I'd love to see your project in the challenge...happy creating!

Would you like more inspiration?  Check out some amazing creations from my talented teammates!

Paper Sweeties February 2017 Release Sneak Peeks!



Hi, there!

Happy Valentine's Day!  Welcome to Paper Sweeties Release Sneak Peeks!  The team is working ahead this month with Easter stamps/dies to be released tomorrow.  I will show an Easter card below.  But, I couldn't let today go by without showing a Valentine card and a treat project for my husband.

For my card, I used the stamp set With Love(lace heart)and hearts.  The banner is from the set Sweet Cuts-Be Happy.  The sentiments are from Happy Everything.  And, a couple more hearts are from  the sets Thanks Berry Much and Coffee, Yes Please.

Project Supplies:



And, here is the treat project for my husband...


The box is from WalMart and I filled it with heart peppermint patties, which is one of my husband's favorite treats.  I simply made a tag.  The stamp sets used to make the tag are Little Wishes, With Love, and Sweet Cuts-Be Happy.  The ribbon(Frosting) and twine(Strawberry) is from  Paper Sweeties, also.


Project Supplies:




And, my next project is highlighting the new Easter stamps/dies that will be available for purchase tomorrow!


A happy adorable bunny is included in the new stamp set Hoppy Easter along with eggs, banner, small flowers and fun sentiments!  I stamped and colored the Easter eggs with copics.  I covered them with vellum for a softer look.  The basket is from the stamp set Basket and die cut with coordinating die Sweet Cuts-Basket.  The scalloped border was die cut using Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders.   Sequins(Robin Egg) and ribbon(Cotton Candy)for the finishing touch.

Project Supplies:





Please have fun hopping to see what my teammies created!  You won't be disappointed!  Have fun!

Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series-February 2017!



Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series-February!




Hi, Friends!

Today I'm revealing my planner pages for the month of February!  Since this is the month for love, Debbie has designed a wonderful planner stamp set this month with a love theme focusing on wedding/anniversary.  This planner set Planner Series: Wedding will be available for purchase on February 15th!

Pink and red dominates my planner pages this month for I focused on Valentine's Day.  I can't believe that I don't have any weddings to go to this month or even any anniversary dates for family or friends.  I believe most of the anniversaries on my calendar are in the summer.  But, that's ok for I made up a few panels with the stamped images for future cards.  And, here they are...



The hearts are from the set With Love.  As you can see, the stamp set would be great for your planner and/or cards.

A closer peek of the planner pages... 






Abigail is in her strawberry outfit from the set Thanks Berry Much and her shirt is from the set Rah-Rah!  The heart is from Pretty Posies.  She is holding a heart box filled with yummy chocolates from her sweetie!  The small vintage panels are from Authentique.  The other planner series sets that I used for my planner are Planner Series-Get Your Craft OnPlanner Series: Winter Sentiments, and Planner Series: Celebrate, and Planner Series: Appointments.
