Welcome to the Paper Sweeties December Inspiration Challenge! I am so proud and honored to announce that this is my very first post as a member of the Paper Sweeties Design Team! Paper Sweeties has a beautiful collection of dies, stamps, twine, sequins, and all kinds of beautiful embellishments to create beautiful projects and cards. I am excited to be joining the team and working with Paper Sweeties in 2016! If you are new to Paper Sweeties, today is the perfect time to visit the Paper Sweeties blog and be inspired by the new December release right here: http://papersweeties.com/category/blog/

One of the things I love about Christmas is sharing gifts made with love with friends and neighbors. I was inspired by the color palette of red, gold, and green to capture a joyful gift giving time. I focused mostly on greens and golds, with a touch of pretty red Paper Sweeties sequins to give the Mason Jar Bundle a little holiday spirit, sharing joy from one home to another.

There’s so much joyful inspiration on the Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge today! Take a look at what our talented design team has created for you today!
