My newest scrapbooking line just debuted at CHA Summer and I am completely in love. I got my package of all the goodies this week and just wanted to unpack it all and go swimming in it! The line is called The Sweetest Thing and is manufactured by the fabulous My Minds Eye. I have to say that it is some of my favorite design work that I’ve done. There are 4 different color sets and I took bunches of pictures, so enjoy all the crafty eye-candy!
Here’s the first set: Honey
Each set has these awesome new enamel dots. They look just like candy and I am completely head over heals in love with them! It’s taking all my self control to keep from putting them on anything and everything around the house.
There are also layered stickers, so cute!
And of course our famous brad cards.
Some cool printed wood + chipboard buttons.
And we can’t forget the titles, label stickers, chipboard, word stickers, stamps, tape, and crocheted doilies!
And if that wasn’t enough… there are still 3 more color sets! See I have been busy!
Tangerine: (love these papers!)
Whew!! What did I tell you… tons of pics! And I cannot forget to show you the matching washi tape:
How fun is that!? Now that you’ve seen most of it, what’s your favorite color set and embellishment item? I’d love to know what you think!
I’m going to have a big give-away on Monday so that you all can play too! So come back then for a chance to win some of this awesomeness.
And be sure to check out the MME blog for lots of creative ideas on how to use this product. Also if you have already gotten your hands on some of it, I’d love love love to see your projects. Please post a link in the comments section!

you know that little strip on the bottom of the 12×12 patterned papers that shows the pattern on the back side? well i love to use that on my pages! sometimes if i only have that one sheet, but need another little piece to coordinate, this works perfect! and i added that cute little bicycle stamp, fits perfect in that little collage on the patterned paper.
i added both the dimensional stickers and the pennant stamps to create this banner.
i found that my butterfly stamp is just about the same size as my butterfly punch…so i layered the punch on top of the stamp! love it!
*the strip of houndstooth paper is from the bottom of the 12×12 paper…i did it again!
the “19″ sticker worked perfect for this layout…my daughter and son are 19 months apart!
i love working with jen’s papers…i love that her designs have lots of layers to them, and her stamps match, you can add whichever ones to personalize your pages!

i scrapbooked one of my favorite pictures of my family…and titled my page “so happy, so lucky” since it’s almost st. patrick’s day! i used this fun green, glittery quatrefoil paper from the lost & found 2 collection: rosy “everything.”
i picked out a few green papers from that same collection…i love to use color that goes with a theme/holiday…you don’t necessarily have to use something with shamrocks or little leprechauns to scrapbook something about st. patrick’s day!
i cut out a piece from this paper, so that i could use the back side of it, i loved the printed words and the green swirls…if you see that part of your paper will be hidden any way, might as well cut it up so that you can utilize more of your paper! i do this a lot, especially if it’s double sided patterned paper and i only happen to have one sheet! and even though i loved the coral orange text on the paper, i decided to cover it up to go for a green monochromatic page.
here’s where i added a scrap square piece i cut out…added a banner stamp and a green brad!
i used the banner stamp…just a corner of it…i liked the “3″ on it…for my three kids.
ran a tag through my printer for some journaling, added a few stamps at the bottom.
my sewing machine wasn’t liking my adhesive runner that i used…i just left it instead of trying to match up the holes again, embrace imperfection, right?
