Sugar & Spice


Happy Easter Sunday! I'm hoping that this scheduled post will publish OK as I'm more than likely to be en-route to the in-laws for a day of good company, good food and drink, and good giggles. Oh, and maybe some Easter chocolate too *wink*!

So it's not only Easter Sunday, but it's release day at Clearly Besotted too! Yup, all those sneaky peeks we've teased you with over the past few days are now available for purchase from 10pm tonight! Stephanie will be sharing all the new products in full beforehand so be sure to take a peek! :)

Today's final sneaky peek features with new set, Sugar & Spice. It's dedicated to the females with fun, bold family and friend words with wonderful co-ordinating sentiments. I decided to have fun with this set and use a number of the co-ordinating sentiments at once (yes, I'm having my cake – or should that be Easter egg?– and eating it!)

tips and tricks
  • I decided to use a heart stamp from the set, Scientifically Speaking to tick the hand-drawn boxes. It complements the patterned paper (American Craft's Shimelle Collection) on the card front too. 
  • The style of this card reminded me of offices so I stole a pink paperclip from our office stash. It helps in balancing the design set at the jaunty angle which my OCD struggles to handle! 
  • The round heart is the lens from the camera stamp from the new set, Keep in Touch.  I simply stamped it, coloured it and trimmed it from the full image. It makes a cute flair-style embellishment! 
I also smothered that heart with my clear Wink of Stella pen and Glossy Accents. I couldn't resist! ;)

Friend Close

I don't think I could give this card to any of the wonderful, creative friends I've made without ticking all the boxes. Every single statement is true. :)

And that, my fellow papercrafting peeps, wraps up the Clearly Besotted sneak peeks. It's decision time for you now; pop across to CB HQ to check out wonderful projects and the products in full to help you make your mind up. Happy shopping!

Thanks so much for visiting this little blogeroo today - I really appreciate it and hope that for those of you celebrating it, you have a very Happy Easter!
