Paper Sweeties July 2016 BLAST FROM THE PAST!

It's already Day #3
Paper Sweeties Blast From The Past!

Check out some more awesome throwback projects from the team:

I chose my "java Easter" card as my last "blast of the past".  I had a lot of fun making this card!  I loved coloring pastel coffee beans!  LOL  

I decorated the inside as well ---

I hope you enjoyed our little trek down Paper Sweeties DT "project memory lane" so to speak and maybe we sparked some new creativity in you the second time around!

If so, be sure and check out our current monthly Inspiration Challenge going on until the end of July!  You might win a fabulous gift certificate to the Paper Sweeties shop, as well as a guest design spot in the future!

And don't forget ---

Paper Sweeties July 2016 BLAST FROM THE PAST!

Welcome back for Day #2 
Paper Sweeties 
Blast From The Past!

The Paper Sweeties Design Team are sharing 
our favorite Paper Sweeties cards 
that we've made from the past!

Nancy Salkeld (You are HERE!)

My past is kind of short, seeing as I just joined in January, but I still had a hard time choosing just 3 of my favorites!

Today I'm sharing another wintry snowman card.  This is by far one of my favorite PS DT cards I've made so far.  I love the watercolored background and the "snowing" hearts falling into the wagon!  

If you haven't heard yet, Paper Sweeties is celebrating a
 4th Birthday in August!


Be sure and stay tuned so you don't miss a thing!

Paper Sweeties July 2016 BLAST FROM THE PAST!

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today is the first day 
Paper Sweeties 
July Blast From The Past!

We are taking a little summer break, 
so for the next three days, 
the PS Design Team 
will be sharing
their favorite creations from the past.

So hop through the list below 
to see what each team member has shared:

Nancy Salkeld (You are HERE!)

I've only been on the PS Design Team since January, 
so for my first "blast from the past", 
I chose my first project as a DT,
from the 
January 2016 Inspiration Challenge---

A winter snowglobe shaker birthday card! 

While it's not really a Christmas card, how about a cool wintry breeze in the middle of July?  I think most of us could use a little arctic blast about now, am I right? LOL

I used the Snowglobe Sweet Chips kit along with several other Paper Sweeties stamps and dies and Paper Sweeties sequins, all of which are listed below.  My mom's birthday is in January and so I made this particularly for her.  I chose to make it monochromatic for a more cool, wintry feel.  

Don't forget about our July Inspiration Challenge going on now also through the end of the month!  Come play along and maybe be our next winner!

Come back tomorrow for another "oldie but goodie" and mark your calendars for Paper Sweeties' 4th Birthday coming in August!  You don't want to miss any of the festivities!

Paper Sweeties Blessings!

Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series - July 2016!

Hello Crafty World!
It's been a while for me to post,  12 days to be exact.  This summer has turned out to be wildly hectic and I have had little time to stamp and craft other than for Paper Sweeties DT.

My mom is moving and I've been in one state helping her pack.  We are at my house in NC for a couple days and then we will drive to SC to her new home and help her unpack!  WHEW!  

But I digress!  

Today is Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Day--
showcasing planners for July!  

Check out all the Plan Your Life Stamps in the PS Boutique
Hop along to see what the rest of the Planner Team has done with theirs below:

Debbie Marcinkiewicz – Paper Sweeties

I recently purchased a new planner, an 18 month one, that begins this month (July).  It has a full month at a glance and then it has two full pages for each week, providing large spaces for each day to plan out in more detail.  I like this a lot because I'm a BIG list maker and am ALWAYS planning my day with lists.  So now, I can either use these pages to jot down daily or a week at a time to add things that come up as they come up.  I love the pastel colors of the planner too!

If you haven't gotten into the craze yet but would like to, you can even purchase the Paper Sweeties Digital Planner at the Paper Sweeties Boutique!

Make sure you play along with us in the Paper Sweeties Monthly Inspiration Challenge also.  You might be our next winner and will receive not only a $25 gift certificate to the Paper Sweeties Boutique but also will get a Guest Designer spot in a future Inspiration Challenge!  

And mark your calendar/planner -----
