Sugar Sweet Paper Treats Design Team - Challenge #1

So our only male team member, Jason – aka Scrappindad – threw out the first challenge for our design team. The rules were simple: a) use a “sweet” image b) use the word “sweet” c) pink had to be the main color. To be quite fair, this was hardly a challenge for me! C’mon I have twin girls….sweet-themes and the color pink are bascially a way of life around here. I’ve been wanting to scrap these super-cute pictures of the girls that I took on Valentine’s Day AND I really, really wanted to use my DCWV Sweet Stack! I LOVE this paper!

What I used:

Pink plaid and white pp - The Sweet Stack

Pink striped cardstock - K & Co.

Pink glitter (never again!) - Martha Stewart

Polka dot tapes - Heidi Grace

"SWEET" font and 'top note' frames - Storybook cart

"girls" font - Opposites Attract cart welded in DS

Border Punch - Fiskars

Those super cute cupcakes are from HK Greetings

Brown cardstock and buttons from my stash

Embossing is CB Swiss Dots and Divine Swirls

I mean it when I say I will not ever use loose glitter again. The problem was really not the glitter but the fact that I made those letters FIRST....which meant that every time I re-arranged the LO there was glitter everywhere. From now on, I'll stick to Stickles!


  1. Oh doesn't this just melt your heart. Your girls are absolutly precious!!!! I love everything about it! Great take on the first one. Tomorrow is the day I get to sit down and do mine!

  2. Britten they are just as cute as they can be! Great layout! I can't wait to see more of the girls.

  3. Britten, the layout is just FABULOUS! I love how the word "sweet" just stands out on the page. The little cupcakes from HK look great too. I tried to use them on my project but just wasn't happy with them.

    Great job on the first challenge (sorry it wasn't very challenging!)
