Paper Sweeties 4th Birthday Celebration!

Woo Hoo it's time to party!  August is Paper Sweeties 4th Birthday and we are celebrating in a big way with a special Blog Hop today!  We're being joined by past Paper Sweeties Design Team members and some special Guest Designers as well!  Hop along and visit each blog, leave some love, and get inspired!

Here is what I've created for you today (links to all of these fun Paper Sweeties products are included at the end of my post):

I had so much fun with this one!  I started with a kraft background, layered some pretty kraft colored music paper on it and then took a doily stencil, added some clear texture paste through it and while it was still wet, I sprinkled on some Doodlebug white glitter.  While that was drying I cut out all of my other shapes.

For my little shaker element, I used the presents in the Stitched Tags #3 Sweet Cuts set.  I cut two in that paper and used a little rectangle to cut the center out.. added some clear cardstock and some foam tape, inserted some Bubblegum and Frosting Sequins and a small amount of micro beads. 

Those pretty balloons are from the Party Time Stamp Set and Dies.  I cut the balloon part out of some design paper and cut the balloon strings out of vellum.

I added a little crocheted flower that I made, some squigglies cut from vellum, some leaves from the Party Time set and that gorgeous seam binding ribbon... my fave!  Of course I added a few more sequins around to finish it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out all of the other creations we have for you today!  And don't forget to stop back on the 14th for the start of the New Release reveal... it's going to be an awesome one!!
