Paper Sweeties Inspiration - Past Favorites

Welcome by again today, sweet and creative blog friends.  I'm always delighted to have you stop by, and even more thrilled when you take time to leave me a comment.  It makes my day, to be honest.  And I always try my best to stop by your blog to leave a comment for you in return.  Today is Day 3, and the final, of our January Look Back at Past Favorites Inspiration posts.  I hope you've enjoyed all the projects my teammates and I have shared over the past three days.  LOTS of great inspiration using these sweet wonderful products - just head over to the Paper Sweeties Blog.
The project I'm sharing today is a paper bag that I decorated.  First, I folded over the top of the bag and covered the flap with some scraps of patterned papers, and vintage scotch tape.  The bag itself, the patterned papers, ephemera, and deer are all from a Crate Paper line called Snow & Cocoa.  Once I had that all in place, I stamped Emma and colored her with my Copics.  I cut her out using the Emma Sweet Cut.  Her outfit and boots were stamped onto scraps of these patterned papers using the Tackle Life One Cup At a Time Stamp Set.
At the top right of my gift bag, I added some of the GORGEOUS Seam Binding from Paper Sweeties.  I used a length of the Cupcake Seam Binding, Mint Seam Binding and Frosting Seam Binding.  This stained and crinkled ribbon is such a shabby vintage touch for any project.  I absolutely LOVE it.  Paper Sweeties makes it easy to coordinate colors by offering the most beautiful Seam Binding, Ink Pads, Sequins and SO  much more.  The sentiment (SNOW) can be found in the adorable BLESSED Stamp Set.
I also stamped the lovely tree found in the Merry Christmas Y'all Stamp Set onto another patterned paper from this Crate Paper line, and I die-cut the tree using the coordinating Merry Christmas Y'all Sweet Cuts.  I placed this tree under the flap to create a woodland scene for sweet Emma.  All the Sweet Cuts (dies) from Paper Sweeties are high-quality steel dies that easily cut through paper, materials, and all sorts of fun mediums to give your projects the texture and personality you're looking for in products.  You will really LOVE what you find at Paper Sweeties.
The tree found in the Merry Christmas Y'all Stamp Set is super cute, so I stamped and cut more than one of these adorable trees for the background.  The deer (ephemera from the Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa line) is a clear acrylic piece, allowing you to see the trees underneath the deer.  Like he's running through the forest of trees.  I just LOVE this sweet stamp set.  It also contains the rustic pick-up truck.  CUTE!
Here are the links to the blogs of my talented teammates who have prepared some Paper Sweeties inspiration to share with you today.  I can't wait to see what they made to inspire us all.  They're a talented bunch for sure.  I hope you'll stop by their blogs AND stop by Paper Sweeties to treat yourself to some new goodies that I know you will LOVE.

I'm playing along here:
