Sweet Shoppe ~Blog Hop Whimsical Wednesday~


Sweet Shoppe

Hello! Hello friends! I've got 2 posts for you today...oh yeah...so if you are looking for the project for Stuck on U Sketches, please scroll on down...LOL!

And if you've came here by way of Whimsical Wednesday...you are on the right track (hopping info at end of post)! There is a brand new challenge blog on the scene that is going to offer so much inspiration...you won't believe it! You'll find all your paper crafting challenges there and lots of fun...scrapping, cards, etc. Check it out! And to get this party started we have a wonderful blog hop tonight! This is a great way to check out the new blog and the team....Enjoy!

And good luck on the awesome candy we've got going from The Kraft Outlet, $20 gift certificate and for the rest of you, 10% off your purchase with the code BLOGHOP (April 1-7).
And also Prairie Bird Boutique, a wonderful bundle of gorgeous shabby crinkled ribbon! I want some! LOL!



This whole page started with this fun group of photos I had taken recently of my silly little girl in the back yard. The idea, well that just kinda popped into my head...
The building is from My Community cartridge, with the Gypsy I cut only the top portion of the building. Paper is DCWV and letter stickers are by Basic Grey covered with Stickles.


And the treats... I don't remember where half of these cuts came from but it WAS fun to put together! Stamping elements from my stash, as is pretty much every single detail here...
I tried to equal out the embossing and the other embellishments so that there wasn't more of one detail then another. It kept the whole arrangement looking cohesive.


I used clear card stock from Papertrey Ink to make my jars. I used a tiny circle punch and punched the design out of the Sweets Treats stack by DCWV (left jar) and I used adhesive pearls for candies (right jar). I cut one layer of clear card stock put the elements on top of that and then one more clear piece which was popped with 3D foam, I made sure to hide that though!


My journaling spot was a piece I had cut from last years Christmas cards and saved...so glad I saved my left overs! The clear gem butterflies were added ONLY for my daughter who I knew would love them..and she did! =o)


And that about wraps it up...tried to keep the text short as I know its a large hop....

Here is the entire order of the hop if you want to follow along...don't forget to follow Whimsical Wednesday to be eligible for the goodies, please.
