Let the Paper Sweeties June Release Party begin!

Welcome to the RELEASE PARTY for Paper Sweeties in June!  Today FIVE beautiful new sets are available in the shop -- perfect for all of your anniversary, wedding, engagement and love themed projects ... Valentine's, special occasions like prom or showers!  This anniversary card was created using the brand *new* Live Laugh Love stamp set from Paper Sweeties!

I used one of my favorite color palettes -- pink, green and cream -- YUM!  I adore the simplicity of the silhouette couple ... but had to add my own crafty touch by sugaring the girl with some pretty glitter!  The frame was misted in green sparkle mist and then I added some more glitter on the raised parts of the chipboard.  


I created a sentiment banner using some of the words from this stamp set and then embellished the card with bits and bobs of lace trim, paper roses, Prima glittered leaves, satin ribbon, trinket pins and a patterned paper ruffle!  I love how you can mix and match the words from this set to create whatever sentiment you need for your project!


Hop on over to the blog to check out the Sweeties Teamies' beautiful inspiration projects for today's June *new* stamp release party ... and while you are there, check out all of the contests and giveaways offered as well!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I'll have one more project to share with you tomorrow, so I hope to see you back again for some more crafty fun!

Hugs!

A Celebration of Love - Paper Sweeties *new* stamps sneak peek Day #1!

 Welcome to Day #1 of sneak peeks for the June *new* Stamp Release at Paper Sweeties!  The design teamies and I are so in {love} with the newest stamps, that we couldn't wait until the middle of the month to share them all with you ... we're bumping the release up two weeks so you can begin creating with the new stamps right away!


I used the *new* Live Love Laugh and Wedding Day stamp sets to create this pretty little monochromatic card!  I added a length of magenta sparkly ribbon for a pop of color against the cream, kraft and black.  I think this image of the bride and groom is my all-time favorite set to date from Paper Sweeties -- swoon!!


Please visit the Paper Sweeties BLOG to check out the beautiful projects created by the Sweeties Teamies ... and to learn about the special offers and giveaways being offered during the June*new* stamp release fun and festivities!  I'll be back again tomorrow with another project to share leading up to the BIG RELEASE PARTY on Tuesday ... see you then!

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
Hugs!

Celebrate - PSSI #8!

 Hello sweeties and welcome to my blog today!  I hope you're having a perfectly wonderful Saturday and a fantastic weekend!!  I'm popping by to share a little something I recently created for the new sketch challenge this month at Paper Sweeties!





I was in the mood to use some bright and cheery colors on my card today!  I added stripes of aqua patterned paper, double scalloped die cuts in melon and white along with three crystal buttons and white baker's twine!  Zig-zag machine stitching around the edges completes the base of today's card.


I stamped the label and sentiment using images from Paper Sweeties' Beautiful stamp set -- LOVE!  I'm smitten with the yellow, aqua, melon and white color palette ... what do you think???

Please visit the Paper Sweeties blog to check out the a-mazing inspiration created by the rest of the Sweeties Teamies and this month's guest designer ... and then we hope you play along this month for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the shoppe!!

Hugs!
