Sweet Heart Candy!

Happy Friday everyone! I am so excited to bring you this sweet heart candy this week.


It's the new 6x6 paper pad by Basic Grey called Sugared. Can you believe that I have had this for a week and haven't opened it up to play with it yet? I've actually been doing some scrapbooking. To win is easy, leave a comment on this post by Tuesday midnight and I will select a winner on Wednesday morning using Random.org. I am looking for good sentiment stamp sets, the kind that you can put on the inside of a card. If you have any good ideas let me know. I already have everything by SU and CTMH or let me know what your favorite set right now is.

As I was saying, I've been off this week and today is my last official day of spring vacation. It went by so fast. I spent most of the week organizing and doing some scrapbooking. I even accomplished one of my New Year's goals, to finish my son's 1st year album and I finally did it. So I will leave you with some of the layouts I completed this week.

Oh what a cutie patootie!!! Great pages. Love the candy!

I have an amazing birthday sentiment set but I have no idea who makes them, what I can tell you is that they are purple in color and come with a case of their own. Sorry I'm not more help.

I have been using Cheery Chat (retired) and Curvy Verses alot lately. Your scrapbook pages are awesome! What a cutie you have there! Helps when you have that kind of subject to work with. ~chris

Veronica said...

Your pages are adorable!! Great work! My favorite stamp set for sentiments is an oldy "Sincere Salutaions" by SU. Thanks for offering the candy!

Allison said...

Those layouts are too cute! My DD was a big Elmo fan her first birthday too! (Here's the invitation [one of my earlier creations: http://stampinwhenican.blogspot.com/2006/10/charlottes-birthday-invite.html].) That Sugared pack is terrific...I wish my LSS would get it in already! Cheers to you!

Regina said...

Oh, your Scrapbooking pages are a nice recollection of the first year!
Sorry, unfortunately, I cannot help you.
I’d love a chance to win your candy.

I am loving the ones I got from Rubbernecker, I only have 2 so far but they are wonderful!

Crafty Connie said...

Great job on your son's scrapbook!
Wonderful layouts.

Estivalia said...

your layouts are so pretty, congratulations on finishing your scrapbooking goal :)

I love PTI "Midex Messages" set, but they're pretty small. A close second is Hero Arts,they have sets tham combine cursive fonts with one like Times New Roman that I love and are big enough to use on the inside of the cards :)

Mary Dawn said...

JenMarie said...

Ooo, yummy paper!!!

Few things can top that awesome blog candy. But that adorable little guy has outshined the Basic Grey:) Your son is darling & your pages & layouts are truly fabulous. Great work, Cindy!!!

April Driggers said...

WOW you've been ultra productive -- making me green with envy here. :) How about I send yo ua year's worth of pics and you jsut use them as "inspiration" for your blog pages! Ha ha! :)

Beth said...

I've been looking for a good sentiment set to use inside of cards, so I'm not much good there. I love you layouts! What a handsome little man!

Tracy said...

Oh aren't you sweet!!! (pun intended!) I actually just purchased my first pad of BG paper online yesterday and can't wait for it to come in.

PTI has some nice stamps for the inside of cards. One is a birthday set and another is for Christmas/holidays. You should check them out.

Primitive Seasons said...

Well I love Define Your Life, but you already have that. I came across a nice set from Cloud 9 Designs called Simple Thoughts Happy Birthday. Lots of quotes and sayings...different from the usual birthday things. Would love to win that paper!

your pages look great! thanks for the chance to win this paper. I have a paper pack up on my blog too if you want to enter

I think sympathy cards are the hardest to do, and I love the versatility of Hope For Comfort. It is a retired SU set. Hard to find, but a good investment.

Melissas said...

Great layouts! Congrats on finishing the first year :)

I, too, am always on the lookout for good sentiments! I'm interested to see what others post for suggestions...

Thanks for sharing!

Kate said...

I love your scrappin' style. It is pretty and fun and it doesn't look like each page took you an hour. =)

stampinc said...

Great lots and what a cutie. Count me in on this paper. This is a good question, cuz I'm always looking for birthday sentiment. Hero Art is one I can think.
Thanks for a chance.

Rita said...

Great layouts Cindy! I luv the picture of your son in the bucket of towels, that's so adorable!!!
This paper looks yummy!

Val said...

Wow! Wonderful blog candy! A stamp set that I think is great for sentiments is the Papertrey Ink set: Mixed Messages. The sentiments are very short and to the point. I don't have this set, but it's certainly on my wish list.

Pegg S said...

I've already won your generous Sweet Heart Candy, so don't enter my name! However, I wanted to tell you that on SCS I had heard about the clear stamp sale at Joann's (a few weeks ago) so I went and bought some sets. I saw these Cloud 9 Designs sets -- they are all sentiments for inside cards!! I haven't tried it out yet so don't know how well they stamp. I can't find a good site to view them -- but they have them on ATRS. But the picture is not clear! HTH!

Linda said...

I love your scrapbook pages---they are precious..
Thanks for the chancee to win great candy!

Oh what a cutie he is. Congratulations for completing your scrap goal. I've got to get back into it. It seems I'm into cards and altered items lately and my scapping has been neglected. Thanks so much for offering this great candy. I love basic gray. Heck, I love all paper.

Giovana said...

Your scrapbook pages are lovely. I started my daughter's and I made only 3 (too bad). I wish I could have more time to do some scrapbooking.
Your blog candy is really sweet, I will love to win.
My favorite SU Set is Embrace Life, I really love it and I don't have it yet, LOL

God bless
Giovana

Diane said...

Wow! Awesome layouts!!! He's just so adorable!!!
Great candy!!!

Starqueen said...

Hi Cindy,
Your boy is adorable! And congrats on completing your goal...you had a productive vacation.

I really love so many of the PaperTrey stamp sets for sentiments. Mixed Blessings has great spiritual, inspirational quotes and Mixed Messages fits many occasions!

Thanks for sharing some SWEET candy this week!

Janet said...

OOOhhhh, I love Basic Grey Paper and I don't have this one yet. As for sentiments, I have quite a few. I have several from The Angel Company which is one company you didn't mention having. They have several sets that are just sayings. In fact I just ordered a sentiment set that is for sympathy cards. I always seem to need good sympathy verses. I also make my own using cut and paste with Versalog.com with Word on my pc. I love the fact that I can choose my color and font with the phrase I choose. I can then cut or punch or diecut my phrases or verses to use on or in my cards. Hope this helps.

Stacy said...

What a handsome boy! I really like Papertrey for sentemints, I also think TAC has some great ones, I just purchased a bunch from them myself.

NormaJ said...

Love your layouts and seeing your
son's growth over his first year.
And thank you for a chance to win the new paper pad. I use SU sentiments too, so I am afraid I won't be much help to you this time.

Annelies said...

I don't know this Basic Grey line, but it looks very nice. Thanks for a chance to win. This would be very useful for my cardmaking.

Cara said...

very nice layouts, I love the picture of your son in the bucket with the towels, what a cutie
Sweet blog candy too

Julie A. said...

Your scrapbook pages are adorable! I am just getting started on a scrapbook for my son, and your pages are very inpsirational. My little guy is an Elmo fanatic, so I plan to do a Sesame Street spread too :) The only sentiment sets that I have are SU, so I'm sorry that I don't have any suggestions! Thanks so much for the chance to win the blog candy.

Bluemoon said...

I have a new set I am just loving, it is the new Clear Design from Hero Arts, called Cleardesign Anytime Message CL129. Very different, also creative messages done in a mix of small perfect type with the accent word in each saying done larger in script. I'm loving it! Focused on positive, and heartfelt little sayings.

Your baby is a cutie pie, great layouts. Thanks for the chance.
