Paper Sweeties Post Release Blog Hop - Emma Pinwheel

Did you hear the news?  The Paper Sweeties were officially released yesterday!  This new line of stamps was created by Debbie Marcinkiewicz.  Most of you will recognize Debbie from her Blog Simple Treasures, or as a Design Team Member of The Shabby Tea Room, My Time Made Easy, The Ribbon Reel, and The Craft Journal. If you are a girlie girl at heart, and love playing with pretty and sweet little stamps, then you will love the Paper Sweeties! The set is a series of adorable little dolls with interchangeable outfits, accessories and sentiments. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of playing with my favorite little paper dolls for hours, cutting out their outfits and dressing them up. Now I can continue to have fun with the new Paper Sweeties.

The card I made today features Emma in a pretty purple dress!  I made a fun summery pinwheel out of a small square of two sided paper.  I simply slit the corners toward the center and folded the edges to the center where I placed a small gem.  For a stick I used a flat toothpick.  I made another pinwheel from the same paper only slightly larger to top the bow.

I made this card for a friend to remind her that if you believe in yourself, your dreams can come true.  The pinwheel is a reminder to have fun along the way!
I hope you like it and that you'll see what the rest of the design team made with these fun new stamps!  Simply click on their names below to jump to their blogs.
