Paper Sweeties Post-Relase Day!


Hi there!

It was so fun and exciting to work on my first
projects for the Paper Sweeties Design Team this
month!   I thank you so much for your support
and sweet comments!

Today is post-release day!  You can purchase
the April line of stamps in the Paper Sweeties Shoppe
For my project as seen above, I used the polka
dot flowers and leaves from the
Make Today Beautiful set.  The sentiments,
Believe, Inspire, and Celebrate are from the
Beautiful stamp set. 

I saw those cute little vases while out shopping
and just had to use them to help highlight the sweet
flowers, leaves, and sentiments!  I used my
cricut machine for the large circles and EK
punches for the other circles.  I applied white
polka dot washi tape to chipboard circles.  Tiny
yellow flower buttons were added to the centers
with pearl cotton.  Gems were placed with a little
doodling for added interest.  Tiny water beads
with water was added to the vases.  I wrapped
the stems in saran wrap to help protect them.  I
have these little gems sitting on my kitchen

Please go over to Paper Sweeties to check out
the new April stamp line and the amazing
creations from the design team!  Thank you
so much for dropping by today!  Take care
and have a great week, hugs!
