 The Shabby Girls are pleased to welcome our sponsor - Paper Sweeties!

 Paper Sweeties is owned and illustrated by Debbie Marcinkiewicz and offers acrylic stamps that allow paper crafters to create adorable dolls with interchangeable outfits and accessories! We also have a variety of all-occasion sentiment sets and sweet accessory stamps - perfect for every paper crafted project!  The Sweeties dolls, accessories and sentiments are wonderful stamps for card making, scrap booking, party favors and so much more!  You can also find hand tea-stained seam binding in the shoppe!

After successfully running a sewing business for three years in which Debbie designed and handmade doll outfits for the 18" American Girl dolls, it was an easy transition from fabric to paper to recreate sweet little dolls and outfits out of paper and glue!  From design concept to stamp line production, it was an almost three-year labor of love process!  The Paper Sweeties concept of dolls with separate, interchangeable outfits for all occasions is innovative, unique and unlike anything out on the market today!  Plus, the variety of sentiments and accessory stamps that the Paper Sweeties Shoppe carries appeal to all types of crafters!!  You'll love playing with the Paper Sweeties stamps ... it'll bring you back to your childhood days, full of fond memories of happy and magical young-girl dreams!

This week's winner will receive TWO FREE STAMP SETS from Paper Sweeties!

Please link your creations below by Sunday, September 30th to play along. Winner and Tea Time Terrific Top Three will be announced Monday, October 1st. We will have an all-new challenge for you to play along with on the 1st as well, so please come back and visit with us again for another chance to win!
