Paper Sweeties - Pre Release Blog Hop - Back to School

This week we are celebrating the release of the Paper Sweeties stamps created by Debbie Marcinkiewicz.  All week there will be festivities, specials, inspiration, give aways, creativity ... and new stamp sets released for August!!

Each day this week we'll have something fun to offer and share with you all, so be sure to pop back for a visit daily to check out the news and specials ... including a contest designed for YOU to create a future Sweetie stamp set!

Today we are having a sneak peek design team blog hop of the sets that will be released on the 15th.  Debbie has already posted several sets to the store site, but on the 15th you will be able to see ALL 15 of the sets that are released in August
I've got kids going back to school this week so pretty soon I will have more time to play.  They will be back in their routine, and I will get back into mine - crafting in the afternoon!  I made this one for a special A+ student.  I put a little initial her sweater so she knows this one was made just for her!  This is Emma as a brunette looking ever so fashionable in  a purple monogram sweater and plaid skirt.   Of course she has her act together and her shoes and socks are perfectly coordinated :)

Absolutely adorable, Jeanne! LOVE the way all your bright, happy colors POP off the black base, and your school elements just couldn't be any more perfect to get Emma ready for school!

Woah this is so cute Jeanne! I love her little plaid skirt and purple top - such a sweet image and love all the trims - especially the rulers and blackboard effect! Fab!

Love the initial on her sweater...that paper is so perfect for this card. Your coloring was spot on and that little school bus charm was perfect. Beautiful card Jeanne.
