Can you believe it's already DECEMBER!?!? I certainly cannot- I'm in denial at how fast this year is just flying by!

But with a new month comes a NEW Inspiration Challenge at Paper Sweeties!

Using the new Homemade with Love  set (& sweet cuts) I chose to use the colors as the inspiration for my card!

Paper Sweeties Dec. Challenge

Hope this gives YOU some inspiration to play along with us at Paper Sweeties... I'd love to see what you create!

And don't forget to stop by each of the DT's blogs for some more awesome inspiration!

Diane- December Guest!

Happy Crafting!

Paper Sweeties November Release Rewind!

HI! (sorry I'm a bit late!)

It's here! It's release day at Paper Sweeties! You can now find all the stamp sets and sweet cuts dies that we've been previewing this week HERE!

For my last preview for this release, we're doing a little rewind and using some older sets along with the new! I mixed together some snowflakes from the Holly Days set and Homemade with Love set with the Believe die-cut from last month's Joy sweet cuts release to create this simple card!


I also added some flower sequins and bakers' twine also found in the Paper Sweeties shop!

Don't forget to check out the November Inspiration challenge still going on too...

AND what the rest of the design team created for today!!

Paper Sweeties November Release Party!

It's Day 3 of the Paper Sweeties previews!

This time around I decided to pull out my brushes and do some watercoloring! I used the ornaments from the Holly Days set...


I stamped the bulbs in white ink and embossed on watercolor paper.  I colored them using distress ink, used some metallic thread, paired it with the Joy Sweet Cuts die from last month's release! Oh, and that fabulous seam binding ribbon is from the Paper Sweeties shop too!

Please visit the PS design team's creations too!

Spreading Holiday Cheer!

Back again on this fabulous Friday for the next Farm Fresh Friday Challenge over at The Greeting Farm!!

This week's challenge is Holidays, now that they are *just* around the corner!  One of my local radio stations has even started playing Christmas music non-stop- not too sure if I'm ready for that just yet! LOL!

I decided to pull out my Dollie with Gifts stamp from the last release for this card, I was blog surfing and came upon this card by Kristina Werner, and was totally in love with it! I used it as my inspiration!

Holiday Cheer

I just loved how she pops off that blue background, even though it's all one layer!

I hope to see you join us in the challenge this week AND that you check out the creations of my fellow teammates!  You can find all the challenge details at The Greeting Farm blog!

Paper Sweeties November Release Countdown!

Back again for Day 2 of the Paper Sweeties November Release previews! They will be released on the 16th and you'll be able to find them all here

Today I sharing the new "Homemade with Love" stamp set AND this comes with a matching die set!

This one is definitely perfect for all you coffee/tea/hot cocoa lovers out there! It comes with a mug, peppermint stick and some other fun accessories.  When I pulled this set out, a hot steaming cup of peppermint mocha popped into my head- so that's what I did!


Again, don't forget to visit the rest of the team's blogs to see what they created today too!

Paper Sweeties November Release Sneak Peeks!

It's that time of the month again for some *sneaky peeks* of the NEW Paper Sweeties November Release stamps & Sweet Cuts!

This month's release is definitely filled with lots of fun and sweetness! Just in time for holidays!

For my first sneak peek for you, I'm sharing "Happy Holidays" this set comes with some great images- I immediately had the idea to create a mini scene...


I stamped the image (that's all ONE stamp!) plus the sentiment, used washi tape to mask off the space around it, with various shades of blue distress inks went to town creating a night sky, and added tiny white dots using my gel pen for 'snow.'

Be sure to check out what the rest of the team created- they will blow your socks off! (hopefully it's not too cold yet in your neck of the woods! ;) )

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back again tomorrow with another sneak peek!

Happy Hopping!

No Peeking...

Oops... sorry I'm late with this post. It's been a busy week!

Popping in to share my latest Chi Chi Memories card using one of the *NEW* November digis!

This cutie is Peek-a-Boo 1!

No peeking...

I thought she would be great on a "no peeking" card for Christmas! I may just tuck a gift card inside for a special someone! :)

Don't forget it's almost the middle of the month- so there's going to be a new FREEBIE coming soon!

HBD Emi!

Yesterday was my sweet niece's SIXTH birthday!

She is all about rainbows and her favorite color is orange... she might even have a little tomboy in her! ;) I needed a birthday card to give her and decided on this cutie from Little Miss Muffet Stamps- she looks just like her!


Of course I had to incorporate a rainbow of washi tape! The sentiment is from parts of Lawn Fawn & Winnie & Walter.

Thanks for stopping by- Happy Saturday!

Feeling a little Fall-ish!

Just popping in again quick to share another card I made for this week's Fabby Friday over at Tiddly Inks!

We're somewhat getting into some cooler temps here in AZ which gets me super excited! & what a better image to get me in the Fall-ish mood than Wryn in the Fall!

Happy Blessings

I'm totally loving this raspberry color combo right now too! (psst.. it's RV66 & RV69) With the exception of some sparkly sequins this card is completely ONE layer!

Thanks for stopping by! & Happy Friday!

Farm Fresh Friday: Be Thankful!

Happy Friday!

It's time for another Farm Fresh Friday Challenge over at The Greeting Farm! This week's challenge is "Thankful"

I decided to pull out this older Oliver & Amelia set, My Favorite Things- this lil Amelia is just too sweet and I thought she would just be perfect for the sentiment I wanted to use!

Lucky Stars

I kept my card pretty simple since I used so many colors on my image, I think it makes her pop off the card (even though she's literally popped off the card with dimensional tape! LOL) even more!

Hope to see you play along! Check out The Greeting Farm blog for all the challenge details!
