This card was created using the Happy Fall Ya'll stamp set for the sentiment banner which I adhered to a toothpick and hot glued onto the scarecrow's hat! The scarecrow is made from dies and punches from Stampin' Up!

Paper Sweeties September RELEASE PARTY!

  Hello crafty friends!  Have you heard the news ... Paper Sweeties are going on another road trip!  We'll be attending the Stamp Scrap Art Tour in Hampton, VA - October 25th - 27th and I hope to see YOU there!  Hampton is right next to Virgina Beach, so I hope to get some walks in down by the water while we're in town too!



Welcome to the Paper Sweeties September *new* stamp RELEASE PARTY!  Today we have THREE fun and whimsical new sets debuting in the boutique!!!

 
For today's little project share, I decided to create a layout using Miss Abigail!  First I stamped her on cream cardstock and then cut her out using the Abigail Sweet Cuts die!  Next I colored her hair with Prismacolor Pencils and added rosey cheeks using a Q-tip and a little chalk!


The next step was to stamp a little outfit for Abigail to wear!  My friend, Anne, had given me these adorable pictures of her little girl and as soon as I saw them, I just knew I'd have to create a layout using the new Cute as a Bug stamp set!


I created the framed name using a large glitter alpha sticker and then stamped the ladybug frame from the Cute as a Bug stamp set and used the Alphas Lower stamp set to fill in the rest of the name!  I used a couple of additional sentiments from the 'bug' stamp set to stamp a cute little phrase on the layout!



Abigail's little ladybug costume was stamped directly onto red cardstock with black ink and then cut out and paper pieced on the doll image!


I added the adorable photos of sweet little Genevieve outlined with machine zig-zag stitching, a pretty polka dotted paper ruffle and a lovely nosegay of flowers to complete my design!  Smitten ... how about you ... with the real little girl and the layout too!

Hop on over to the blog to check out the Sweeties Teamies' wonderful inspiration projects for today's Septmeber *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!

Paper Sweeties - September new products preview: Day #1

Hello crafty friends!  Welcome to Day #1 of sneak peeks for the September *new* Product Release at Paper Sweeties!  I am over the moon with this month's new releases and cannot wait to share it all with you!


I created today's little peek project using the *new* Happy Wishes set that will release in the Paper Sweeties boutique on the 15th!  I am smitten with the lovely floral frame, beautiful postage stamps and pretty sentiments contained in this versatile stamp set!  The nosegay was created by adding several pretty blooms and a bow tied with Vintage Winter White seam binding.


After stamping and coloring the frame, I stamped a sweet butterfly and a couple sentiments to compliment the frame.  I also added a pretty border included in this wonderful set -- pearls added to the middle of each segment of the border make it pop off the page!  This is a perfect 'all occasion' card to keep on hand for when you need to send someone a pick-me-up!


Pastels, polka dots and prettiness ... this card just makes me 'smile' ... how about you???

Please visit the Paper Sweeties BLOG to check out the WONDERFUL projects created by the Sweeties Teamies ... and to learn about the special offers and giveaways being offered during the September *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 the 15th ... see you then!

Hugs!

Best Wishes - TRR #61!



Please click HERE to view additional pictures of my project for this week's challenge at The Ribbon Reel!

Celebrate - PSSI #11!

Hello crafty friends!  Thanks for popping by for a little visit today!!  I'm here today sharing a little something I recently created for the new sketch challenge this month at Paper Sweeties!






I used these fun sets from Paper Sweeties to create my gift:

Beautiful
Celebrate
Little Wishes



I stamped the sentiment and banners directly onto a white paper doilie using the Beautiful and Celebrate stamp sets from Paper Sweeties!


And then added some bits and bobs of natural treasures -- a canvas flower, burlap leaves, newsprint bloom, pearl trinket pin, tea-stained hem tape, ecru lace trim ... all atop a polka dotted kraft bag!


Inside my little gift bag, I added some gourmet coffees and topped the little package off with a kraft paper doilie, more tea-stained hem tape, a couple of rusty jingle bells and a sweet little tag stamped using the Little Wishes set!


I made this little gift for my dear friend, Suzi, who is hosting an engagement party this weekend for her son!  I know when the festivities are done, she'll want to curl up on her couch and enjoy a little cuppa something yummy :)

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'll play along this month for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the boutique!!

Hugs!
