Sweets for my Sweet

I had a couple of delicious scraps from my Paper Crush collection which I knew would be perfect for a card.

A Valentine's Day card was the obvious choice, but I had already made one of those, and after all, I really only needed one right?! So I tried to strike the right balance between lovey and lovely so this could be used equally well for romance or for many other occasions too.

Handmade by Suzanne has just started carrying gorgeous Hambly Screen Prints papers and transparencies and I couldn't help but throw a few into my cart with my last order. I know a lot of people will balk at the cost of them but I figure I'm going to cut them up and use them on LOTS of different pages and projects which means they're actually extremely good value for money!

And see how clever I was here? Adding little colourful pearls (which look just like bubblegum) into my otherwise empty sweets container. Instant colour, dimension and a touch of whimsy :-)

PS. Don't forget about my giveaway going on


  1. A "sweet" card, the pearls are the cutest idea ever!

  2. This is just adorable! I love the illusion of the candy in the jar - TOOOOOO CUTE!!!!!

  3. seriously? you are a genius! that candy jar with 'sweets' in it is FABULOUS!!
    I think you found a great balance- and gave me a bit of perspective on the Hambly!!! :)

  4. So cute!! Love the candy jar with the pearls as gumballs - so clever!! :)
