Paper Sweeties April Release Rewind!

Happy Wednesday and welcome to the Paper Sweeties Release Rewind! This is the final day of the April release and it is also the day when the Paper Sweeties designers combines a new release with a previously released set. This was a no-brainer for me, I've always been a fan of the Beautiful set, the labels are just so pretty and I'm very excited to have a die that will cut it out for me. I'm left handed and find fussy cutting extremely difficult, so this die allows me to get a crisp,perfect edge.

Isn't the label just lovely? I've looked ahead a bit to late summer/early fall with my chosen papers and color scheme.  I've used Graphic 45's French Country papers here. They are  detailed and beautiful so I've kept my layout relatively clean. The papers and label are doing a lot of the work here! How handsome is this rooster?
I hope you'll take a few minutes and visit the rest of the designers and se what they've made for you today. I am blessed to be a part of an immensely talented team and am humbled by them again and again.

Paper Sweeties April Release Party!

The time is here! It's officially the April release at Paper Sweeties! We're celebrating a lot of different occasions this month with the new Happy Everything set,ConGRADulations and the Beautiful Little Wishes dies. I've taken a sentiment from ConGRADulations and used it on my shabby chic wedding card today.


Wedding season is coming up really soon and both new sets are wonderful additions to your summer stamp collection. I've also used some gorgeous crinkled seam binding in Frosting and Sugar Sprinkles along with pearls and a jewel to compliment a bride's jewelry. I really love the image of a Victorian bride I've used as the focal image. Links to all of the supplies are listed at the end of this post.

The rest of the Paper Sweeties designers have projects for your inspiration. Use the blog hop list below to visit!

Make It Monday At The Kraft Journal

Monday is here,(boo)but all is not lost, it's time for another Make It Monday Challenge at The Kraft Journal.
We're gearing up for Easter here and the theme this week is bunnies and/or lambs. Use one of these in your project and please remember to use a kraft colored item or anything that can be purchased at The Kraft Outlet store.
I recently purchased a cute little 6x6 paper pad named "Welcome Spring" by Imaginisce. It has some really adorable Spring themed papers featuring bunnies and birds. I've used the bunny themed papers here of course,the bunny tag is actually cut from a piece of paper that is all different style labels and tags. There is a complete supply list at the end of this post.
I started  with a base of Light Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock cut in half at 4.25 by 5.5 inches. I layered a blue patterned paper piece on the front,then continued layering with a bunny printed paper,scalloped border and doily. I trimmed a pre-printed label from the paper pad, rounded the corners and adhered it to the center of the doily with foam tape. I created the sentiment using the Seasonal Chit Chat Word Stickers. I then embellished the label with pink and blue glittered jewels. After wrapping a piece of Hand Stained Bias Tape in Vintage Winter White around the front of the card, I  tied it into a bow and added a pink paper flower to the middle.
    I hope you'll join us this week and link up your projects using the inspiration theme,  use something kraft or any item that can be purchased at The Kraft Outlet store.Remember, all followers of The Kraft Journal blog who link up their projects are entered into a monthly drawing for a $15 voucher from The Kraft Outlet. You also have the chance to have your work featured on Feature Me Friday. Hope to see you there!

Paper Sweeties April Release Sneak Peeks!

Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend is going well! Spring is full on here in Georgia and we had a wonderful Saturday planting flowers and cleaning up the yard,etc.
It's almost time for a new release at Paper Sweeties! Today is a sneak peak of one of the new releases!

Pretty soon it will be all about graduations, and Paper Sweetie's ConGRADulations set is the perfect stamp set for some really cute graduation cards. I've dressed sweet little Abigail in her cap and gown. I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers and made her tassel from some Peppermint Baker's Twine from the Paper Sweeties store. I like to use stars as a graduation motif, as if you are star for a day!

Check out what the Paper Sweeties new release team has for you today! Continue your blog hop using the link list below.



All of the new Paper Sweeties April release will be available at midnight on April 15th. Check back tomorrow for another look at the new release stamps!
