Paper Issues Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hi all!

I hope you brought your sweet tooth with you, because today we're kicking off a new theme over at Paper Issues...CANDY! We also have a giveaway AND I have a special discount to the Paper Issues store just for you! YAY!

If you're hopping over here from Marlene, Deanna, Lori or Audrey's blog...welcome! If not, promise me you'll hop back at some point to visit each of these fabulous ladies to see what sweet things they've created!

It's no secret that I have a sweet tooth! Just ask my hubby & he'll start listing off all of my not-so-secret hiding spots for sweets. To kick-off this new theme, I created two projects. First off, a simple little card...


Totally loving the super sweet, new line from Dear Lizzy...isn't that lollipop sticker cute?!


My second project is an altered candy jar. When I saw photos of the Dear Lizzy goodie jars from CHA, I totally fell in love! Adorable. I just knew that I needed to make some...and then this new Paper Issues theme came along & it was perfect! I'm going to be having some scrappin' friends over soon and thought that it would be fun to make these to hold their favorite sweet treats! I started with a standard, wide mouth Mason jar and came up with this...



How fun is that? Super simple...and super fun to make! I think they'll look so darn cute on our scrappin' tables too! We'll have sugar at arms length to sustain us.

So now...on to the giveaway! Paper Issues is offering up a chance to win this fabulous kit!


15 yards of twine from The Twinery, 12 yards of Hug Snug Seam Binding (I love this stuff!) and all those lovely American Crafts Dear Lizzy patterned papers! Woohoo! Are you excited yet?!?
Here's what you need to do...'like' Paper Issues on Facebook and follow our blog. It's as easy as that!

If you just have to have this kit NOW, there are extra ones available for purchase in the Paper Issues store (along with loads of other fantastic new things!) AND if you use the code 'BETHANY' you'll get 20% off your entire purchase. Go check it out here! I know there's just something you can't live without. :)

Now, go satisfy your sweet tooth...create a sweet Candy themed project (if it is made with paper, you're in!) and link it up at the Paper Issues site so we can all get a sugar high! You'll get a bonus entry for the giveaway if you link up a project. Don't forget to go check out the other Designers creations for more inspiration too!

Happy Crafting!
