Sneaky Peek Day #1

Day #1
Gimme Some Sugar

It's Day 1 of Sneaky Peek Week! I don't know about you, but I'm ready for the new year and everything that it brings. And that includes our January Collection coming on January 10! We've got 7 NEW stamp sets and 4 NEW CutUps dies in this collection, and I know that there is something for everyone to love. And that starts with this set. Sprinkle lovers, hang on to your hats.

When Jen del Muro came to me with the concept for this set, I knew it had to be a great one. Jen's idea was for a "sweet" shop with jars of cookies and candies, decorated with banners and pennants. She even wrote the sentiments, too!

And here is just a sample of how you can "build" your shop. Jen placed the banners above and below to really get her sweet message across.

Susan Liles' card is just stunning. She distresses the edges of her card for a vintage look. Who says Sprinkle can't be shabby chic? I think her addition of aqua is so striking and non-traditional. And her addition of the Peppermint Divine Twine is just perfect.

Here is a wonderfully elegant card by Nancy Thomas. You may have noticed the NEW CutUps in Jen's and Susan's cards, but in Nancy's you really get to see how special it is.

The two die cuts you see at the top of Nancy's card is really just one die. That's right. It's just one die that cuts two borders at one time. You already know how versatile our border dies are, cutting two shapes at once, and this time we took it a little further. I really {heart} our Queen of Hearts Border CutUps.

Want to see more? Then check out Amy, Julie, Jenny, Lori and Swanky Stamper Lisa Henke and see how they used "Gimme Some Sugar."

When you finish at their blogs, head on over to our Forum on SplitcoastStampers and leave a comment on our "In It To Win It!" Thread. You could win the "Gimme Some Sugar" stamp set just by leaving a comment. 

And today's Sneaky Peek is a perfect segue into TCP Tuesday's Inspiration Challenge. Jen, creator of "Gimme Some Sugar" is also the Hostess with the Mostess for today's challenge. And not surprising, it's all about hearts. Check out the Inspiration Collage.

So after you check out the blogs and leave a comment on the "In It To Win It!" Thread, you might be so inspired to create something. At least we hope so.
