Paper Sweeties - New Releases Day! Sweetness!

Hey guess what?  Today is release day for the Paper Sweeties!  That means all 15 sets are available for purchase at the Paper Sweeties store!  There will be fun and surprises all week including an opportunity to design your very own set of Paper Sweeties!  Please check back every day to check out the news and specials!

To celebrate I made some sweet treats featuring the little ladies!  You can't have a party without some cake can you?    I made some easy pinwheels to dress up cupcakes that would be perfect for a party, and a tag to make a sweet treat extra special for someone!  You don't need a die to make a pinwheel - simply cut a strip of paper 12" x 2" - run the edge through a border punch - and then score every 1/4".  Zig Zag fold the score lines and adhere the two ends.  Hot glue a circle in the center to keep your folds in place and the rest is up to you!   These sweet girls are so easy to identify with - we all know someone who looks like one of the girls, and they are so easy to customize to look like that particular person.  A simple change of hair color, skin tone and outfit and the transition is complete.  Here are closeups of Abigail (blue), Emma (green), and Sophie (red).
Here is the tag I made with Sophie with dark hair and a different skin tone - still adorable, but personalized for someone special!

Wow, wow and double wow!! Jeanne these are all brilliant!! Those cupcakes look out of this world now you've dressed them up with the girls and your fab pinwheels! I think the red tag is stunning - think this might be my favourite :)

Lisa S. said...

I've never met a cupcake I did not like and these are no exception. The fun images are cheery and I'm a big fan of the striking dp's you used. What a wonderful way to start the day! Now if you'll excuse me I think I hear a cupcake calling my name. :D
Have a great day,

Debbie said...

OMG ... these are absolutely DELICIOUS!!! Such bold and bright colors and what a wonderful way to showcase all the Sweeties - bravo!

Joyce said...

These are so cute. And, what a great idea to use them as cupcake toppers.

Jinny Newlin said...

Way cute, Jeanne! LOVE those cupcake toppers! Gosh, those ribbons make them even more special! And Sophie looks just perfect all decked out in red!

Kim said...

Oh my...these are just too sweet. I love how you turned them into cupcake toppers, just too clever.

Marybeth said...

Hi. Sorry I am late to your party. Any cupcakes left? You sure know how to showcase a new stamp set. This is the cuties way to show off the little girls. Love the pinwheels too. Outstanding!

Andrea Ewen said...

Wowzers, these are gorgeous, Jeanne! The bows are dazzling...I love their bright, bold color and of course those Sweeties are just darling!

Sharron said...

WOW, you have been doing such an amazing job showcasing these new stamps! Love your adorable cupcake toppers! The pinwheels are fabulous. And the bow on your tag is SO gorgeous--love the red! Your earlier cards were fabulous too. I loved the black background, the ruler and cute bus charm--all perfect for a back to school card! As you can see, I'm a little behind on visiting blogs due to getting a daylily magazine out that my hubby & I have been editing.

Cathy Weber said...

This is quite a post...such cute pictures, cupcakes, tags and those little pinwheels! Of course I spent a bunch of money buying a die for pinwheels, wished I had seen you tutorial first. Would the sweeties be so fun customized for a little girl's birthday party with hair colored for each little girl? Very, very cute and yummy looking too.

NanaConnie said...

So cute, Jeanne! I'm not sure how you always do such perfect bows. I can't do them that well even using my bow tying tool! Love these adorable little girl images. :-D

JJ Bolton said...

These are just too cute! Love the possibilities for customizing the cupcake toppers for each sweetie:) I love the black and white rosettes (you know I can't resist rosettes:)!
