Paper Sweeties September Release Rewind and a Farewell

Time for a new stamp release over at Paper Sweeties! This is my last design team project as a Paper Sweeties designer. I have enjoyed the past 9 months being on the team and designing for the lovely, Debbie. Debbie has been good friend to me and I appreciate her taking a chance on me to be a designer. It is time for me to move on and to try new things. I wish Debbie and the team continued success. I will miss you girls!

SugarPea Designs {Sketch Challenge #11}


The month is flying along! Today we have a brand new sketch challenge up at SugarPea Designs! I love the sketch and wanted to use the new set called "Teacher's Pet"! I inked up the small school bus and fussy cut it. Then I stamped the sentiment on the designer papers I used.

Paper Sweeties September Release Countdown!


Time for a new stamp release over at Paper Sweeties! Sometimes it is nice to dress up a bottle of wine for a special occasion! Using the new star die, I cut out a star from some glimmer paper and then heat embossed the sentiment in silver embossing powder and ink. I had some fancy shiny ribbon that I used for the top of my tag!

Merry Monday #124 & NBUS #2


I was happy to play along with the Merry Monday gals today! I have been neglectful of my Christmas cards but I have been so busy with life! Ack! It all piles up!

Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

The challenge this week is "Transportation". I was intrigued by this theme when I made up the challenge graphic and I desperately wanted to play along!


I was tidying my craft space and found some cute stickers I bought at M's a LONG time ago! Can you stay "STASH"! So I was even more excited as I knew I could play along again with Darnell's NBUS #2 Challenge! Woohoo! Score! AND the card front is actually from a package of Project Life and I just cut down the card, stamped the sentiment and added the stickers. This card took minutes to make!


Paper Sweeties September Release Sneak Peeks!

Time for a new stamp release over at Paper Sweeties! I created a simple wedding card using the new heart die. I cut out a two hearts in white paper and one in black. Then I cut away one of the white hearts to make the front of a tuxedo shirt and added a "button" to the top...hopefully you can see the bride and groom...

SugarPea Designs Stamp Release Day 5 {Let's Fiesta!}


My goodness, you are in for a treat! This stamp set is hilarious and I LOVED inking up this fella! There is a donkey in the set and some other fun "extras" but the best part is the sentiments...I could not resist using this sentiment...hehehe...


I used some bright reds and yellows to make him look festive! I used the fun sketch over at Retro Sketches...it was perfect for what I had in mind...clean and simple! My card measures 4.25" squared...easy peasy to create. It is also nice and flat to mail to a friend. I think it would be a nice "cheer up" card for someone who needs a shoulder to lean on...


Our fabulous September release is available in the SugarPea Designs Online Shoppe right NOW! Please click here to shop – and if you are lucky enough to win a set you’ve already purchased, you can choose another of the same value!
