{SPD} SMILE!



I used SugarCuts- Polaroid Journal 
Card for my card today and NO 
stamping!! Can you believe it?!?!
But that is just how awesome this 
die is! It can be a companion die
for a few of our sets , or it can be used as a stand out die all by itself and still make a bigstatement! I used some silver cross-hatched CS for the camera details, as well as the 'smile' word die. I think this card is really bright and fun and just puts me in the mood for summer to come!!



Here's the rules for the SugarSketch Challenge!

  • Create a new card or project using the SugarSketch provided.  SugarPea Designs stamps are NOT required to play along or to win but would be appreciated :)
  • You may rotate/flip the sketch & replace shapes – so long as the original sketch layout is recognizable.
  • Upload to your blog or other Online Gallery using Keyword: SPDSS24 so that we may check out your beautiful work.
  • Add your name and link to your project in the InLinkz shown here.
  • One randomly selected winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the SugarPea Designs Online Shoppe. However, if the winning entry features a SugarPea Designs stamp we will increase the prize to $15

{KKS} Birthday Kids

Hey everyone!! Welcome back to day THREE of our APRIL Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks!!! Have you been enjoying the peeks so far?? So much fun!!
We are super excited to have another amazingly fun set from artist, Cheryl Grant!!! Of course it features our favourite kids....Lulu, Lexi and Lucas!! This one's called SWEET BIRTHDAY KIDS!
This fabby set is all about celebrating, making wishes, friends and having fun, no matter what age you happen to be!! It features THREE sweet images plus SEVEN coordinating sentiments!! And it's also such great timing that we just got the new Birthday Wishes - Boy and Girl paper pads by Echo Park!!! 


Hey there! I decided to use a few of the stamps in this awesome set to create a little scene. I used Lucas, the bird/balloon, the dog and the cat and just mounted them all on an acrylic block the way I wanted them, and stamped one time! I think this turned out pretty cute! I added some glossy accents, a bit of loose glitter, some white paint dots to the present using a Sharpie White Poster Paint Pen.


I hope you can join us for all the fun and excitement and prizes at our LIVE ONLINE RELEASE PARTY!! Come join us on Saturday night beginning at 6pm EST!!

{SPD} Sweet2Repeat hop- April


Hey Crafty friends! Today the SugarPeas are revisiting some of the stamp sets from our last release in our Sweet2Repeat blog hop!

I chose to use this sweet little scooter and one of the sentiments from the set Wanderlust. I stamped the scooter, then masked it and inked with a sponge, distress inks and a stencil. I then removed the mask and coloured the scooter with Copic markers. I added the sentiment, below, and also used an accent stamp (the little arrows), and stamped them in the same red distress ink that I sponged over the yellow DI. I added some enamel dots that coordinated with the DP I chose. The LO is from this weeks Deconstructed Sketch.
